Hi, my name is Sergey, I am 46 and live in the Moscow region. I am going to tell you about the last day of the year that has just passed. First, I celebrated it not under palms on a beach, in a bamboo restaurant or in a forest but in a flat. Second, I remember everything which is very unusual. I wanted to feel the change of emotions observed when one year succeeds the other one and needed to be fresh in the morning. That is why I invited a company of friends who don’t drink at all.
First, I celebrated it not under palms on a beach, in a bamboo restaurant or in a forest but in a flat. Second, I remember everything which is very unusual. I wanted to feel the change of emotions observed when one year succeeds another one and needed to be fresh in the morning. That is why I decided to celebrate the holiday in a company of friends who don’t drink at all.
December 31. I woke up at 12:32 p.m. It is nice to sleep well if you plan to celebrate the whole night. I meditated looking at the Christmas toy. There is nothing better than meditation in the morning which has a better effect than coffee or beer.
Let’s make some salads.
I take herring and onions for that.
A layer of herring and onion is covered with a layer of carrots.
Now it is turn of beetroot. Both carrots and beetroot are cooked.
The salad is covered with mayonnaise sauce in the end.
Another salad is called salade Olivier.
As pickled cucumbers are usually had with vodka they should be cut in very small pieces not to seduce those who refuse to drink.
This complicated procedure requires a man’s participation.
The salad is ready as well as the New Year’s duck is. It is time to go to the bath-house to be clean in the New Year.
Cold water of the pool is very pleasant after the hellish temperature of the steam bath.
Application of a green face mask that should remind of the Christmas tree is a very important step.
Drinking vodka and beer in the bath-house is strictly prohibited as we don’t want to take any plane and celebrate the event far from home.
We drink tea with a cake, sweets and fruits.
We are ready to celebrate the New Year.
We drink juice, lemonade and other non-alcoholic drinks.
Our President delivers his New-Year’s speech.
I decided to try some fish salad after I had seen the sea behind our President’s back.
We turned off the light to enjoy the view of the Christmas tree.
A sober person will never harm himself with a fork in such a light.
Suddenly everyone became quiet which never happens in a company of drinking people.
It was high time to go for a walk and free some space that would be filled with hot food and tea.
Will our kids be able to fall sleep at such a loud night?
It is not easy to launch an air-balloon.
Now the balloon is ready to go up. What will pilots who land in Domodedovo airport will think about it?
Everyone is happy again and we can go back home to drink tea.
We had tasty pies.
And no wine.
Not to fall asleep right under the Christmas tree I said good-buy to everyone and went home. A crowd of sober people with an accordion in their hands surprised me a lot. Can abstinence become a new fashion trend in our country?
It was easy to fall asleep, I didn’t even have to turn on my laptop.
