For the first time in Sergiyev Posad (and probably in the whole of modern Russia) the New Year celebrations didn’t take place for religious reasons. As It’s been reported that the newly elected lord-mayor decided not to propose any street festivities on this night because of the Orthodox Advent fast. Radonezhye, the local TV station produced an alternative event on that very night for all the people of Sergiyev Posad providing a live broadcast of the party. Definitely something to be enjoyed on a cold winter night. Merry belated Christmas, see you in 2010! Photo by TRofimOFF
