Christmas traditions rituals and symbols

Happy New year involve a lot of traditions and rituals.

I would like to draw readers ‘ attention only on the traditional new year symbols of our nation.

Its importance is today particularly relevant. We practically know almost nothing about national symbols, which our ancestors designed the Christmas event. And bow to foreign, in particular Chinese and Japanese, characters.
