The new year has become for us a familiar and traditional holiday — the past decade he has quite monotonous: with elegant Christmas tree, festive table and a speech of the head of the country. But for the Soviet people it was a completely different holiday: he was prepared long before, literally collecting food and Christmas paraphernalia.
Today we would like to tell and show you how did you prepare for this joyous and warm holiday in the USSR.
Members of the Komsomol, the pioneer-workers have for the New year to organize a collective tree for the children. In schools, children’s homes, in palaces of pioneers, children’s clubs, children’s and movie theaters everywhere should be the children’s Christmas tree! The city councils, chairmen of district Executive committees, village councils, national education bodies need to help device the Soviet tree for the children of our great socialist Motherland.”
New year the government allowed to note, however, January 1 remained a working day.
Thirdly, every Soviet woman most certainly needed a new fashionable dress — it could sew with his own hands or in the Studio, in rare cases, be purchased from dealers. The store was the last place really to get appropriate about it.
