I've never been into decorating my place for the New Year celebration. I still am not, neither do I fancy buying all the Halloween stuff. Why bother - the only thing you need to have got before the Putin's speech is the Christmas tree, and why put it up before it's already the 30th.
I'm not sure I've relinquished the idea completely, and I don't know whether it's lazyness or something else that generally prevents me from establishing any kind of the holiday atmosphere around. So the solution of the issue, if we call it so, isn't yet in sight. This year, however, the Christmas tree is already there, and a couple of Christmas-ish movies are already scheduled too. No idea what came over me🤷♀️
