New Year Decorations


The New Year tree near Kievsky railroad station (you can see the tower of the station in the background).

Behind the tree to the right you see the corner of new shopping mall, very special architecture (link to the site of the mall where you can see it in full beauty).

Few days ago they asked us here why we called this tree New Year tree, not Christmas tree. Very simple. During 70 years we did not have religion (well, we had the H-o-l-y but his surname was Lenin, and most of our problems now are because 7 generations of Soviets did not believe, to my point of view).
That is why it was logical to call it New Year tree.
