Today is the day that New Year's used to be celebrated according to the old calendar. Hence the title of this post is the title of today's holiday. Old New Year!
We celebrated today first by me going to the dentist... then this evening we went out with our friends Ekaterina (Katya) and Alexei. We attended a Big Band Concert featuring the music of Glenn Miller.
We had a great time with our friends and the music was great too. The band leader George Garanian is very famous here, selling millions of records in the 70's. His MySpace page:
features music played by his band.
We were surprised to see a fair number of young people in the audience and Katya told us afterward that some of the attendees were prominent people here in Krasnodar. We need to watch the news to see who was there... the news camera was going all night long!
