I do not remember any of this, so it was interesting to read
Although the basic elements of a holiday home are preserved from the Soviet times, in those days, preparing the New Year in the traditional form was almost heroic.

To get the basic ingredients, such as salad, it was necessary to work hard: in the free market was not mayonnaise, green peas, sausage - stocking began in October.

C great difficulty getting out and the main holiday drink - Soviet champagne. Revision AdMe.ru decided to recall nostalgic collection, as it were.

Initially, the New Year was not an official state holiday, but most families traditionally celebrate it along with Christmas, and the holiday was considered a family.

Christmas trees and Christmas decorations in the USSR

For the first time officially celebrated the New Year until the end of 1936, after the article of a prominent Soviet leader Paul Postysheva in the newspaper "Pravda".

"Why do we have schools, orphanages, nurseries, clubs, palaces depriving the pioneers of this wonderful pleasure children of workers of the Soviets? Some of them, not only as "left" distorters decried this children's entertainment as a bourgeois idea. It is the conviction of the wrong tree, which is great fun for children, to put an end. Komsomol, the pioneer of workers should make a New Year tree a collective for children. In schools, children's homes, in the Palace of Pioneers, in the children's clubs, children's cinema and theater - should always be children's Christmas tree! City Council, chairmen of regional executive committees, village councils, education authorities should help the device of our great socialist motherland Soviet Christmas tree for the children. "


New Year the government allowed to celebrate, but January 1 remained a working day. Kremlin Christmas tree - the main fir-tree of the entire Union, 1938.

Photographer Emmanuel Evzerihin depicted his family at the Christmas tree, 1954.

1955. Students in vocational schools came to the Kremlin New Year party in the national costumes. Even densely crowded staircase, 1955.

1960. Costumes and decorations reflect the power of the country: the divers and astronauts in the Kremlin Christmas tree. The first satellite has been in orbit, and the film "Amphibian Man" has not yet been removed.

Tickets for the New Year tree for children too hard to reach them. And also need a costume snowflakes gauze or bunny outfit. The gift, which included were caramel and apples, and walnuts, provides parents with the trade union. The dream of every child was to get on the main tree of the country - first in the Column Hall of the House of Unions, and after 1954 - in the Kremlin Christmas tree.


Just after the war started to really develop the tradition of celebrating the New Year in the USSR. We began to appear Christmas toys: first very skromnye- paper, cotton and other materials, and later - a beautiful, bright, glass, similar to the pre-revolutionary decorations trees. By the end of 1960 it has been launched mass production of toys for the Christmas tree, and you could buy a pretty simple variants of plastic, usually with Soviet symbols.

Festive table


Occasion prepared in advance. Firstly, you need to purchase products - that is, to "get", stand in the hour queues to get in grocery orders sprats, eggs, smoked sausage.


Required dishes on the holiday table: Olivier, aspic, jellied fish, carrot and beet salad, herring under a fur coat, pickled cucumbers and tomatoes.

Those who had a familiar dealer at the grocery store, could afford to New Year brandy for 8 rubles 12 kopecks, champagne "Soviet" sweet, tangerines.


Ready-made cakes, too, were a deficit, so basically had the furnace itself.

Or a long time to stand in line, like in this photo.

Apparel and Gifts

Each Soviet woman most certainly needed a new fashionable dress is its could sew their own hands or in the studio, in rare cases - to buy from black marketeers; the store was the last place where you could find something.


Actress Clara Lucko at the Christmas tree in 1968.


Christmas gifts - another obstacle to Soviet citizens in the process of preparing for the New Year. With any product in the country was napryazhenka and with beautiful goods it was even worse, so our parents went to visit, taking champagne, sausage, it is desirable - "Servelat" canned exotic fruits (pineapple), a box of chocolates. Women on holiday gave the Soviet spirits, which stores was in excess men - colognes.


"Nothing paints the woman as hydrogen peroxide" - the joke becomes relevant on the eve of every New Year's celebration in the Soviet Union. The phrase "beauty salon" did not know even the most fashionista. The hairdressers were recorded in a few weeks, the preparation of hairstyles, makeup and everything, "New Year's appearance" demanded by the Soviet Women's maximum time, ingenuity and independence - sometimes doing hairstyle girlfriend.

The last stage of preparation - wipe (to repair) TV, which, as claimed by the postman Pechkin, is "the best decoration New Year's table." "Carnival Night", "Irony of Fate", "New Adventures of Masha and Viti", "Blue Light", "Frost" - Soviet films, transmission and cartoons in the morning, without which no Soviet citizen could not imagine a festive night.

Re: How to prepare for the New Year in the USSR

Oh, I already zanostalgirovala ... So all vividly remembered ... And my mom was in the Kremlin Christmas tree in 1956 We still (hopefully) live a tin trunk of sweets ...

The only thing - I do not remember a strong hunger. Maybe in Belarus supply was better ... Well, turn on the cold oranges, tangerines ... And so - in general, it was everything.

And the atmosphere! The snow creaks, lanterns, tree smell ... the people back home in a hurry ... I loved to walk the streets at night and treat trees in the windows ...

And yet - "Irony of Fate." It was mandatory, like a salad "Olivier" ... oh, I already salivating flowed !!!

Re: How to prepare for the New Year in the USSR

Girls, you stirred up by their descriptions, you know, memories culinary sense From the very, very cocktails remember ice cream and milk, and probably something else (do yourself estesno ), Basins mandarins, of course; One time was still referred to in Article pineapple (not impressed). At one time were very popular rolls and all kinds of cakes, ice cream, candy and of all sorts of different (roasted nuts and squirrel are your favorite, but then in the appendage to them in the sweets were always all sorts of uselessness like caramels and other ). And from food no longer remember anything .
But the mega-fireworks daddy - remember it, all sorts of competitions my mother - too. "Old songs about the main thing" on TV, and even as a sister struggled to fit the desire to malyuem-at-Senko klochochke paper - that burned quickly and certainly come to pass (And no clothes (c)! )
