Christmas, New year, Epiphany and Carnival, came to us from a distant past. The unique flavor of the holidays gave paganism — their constant companion in the first century. Ivan Buranov glorifying the power of Russia, the originality of its traditions and practices, elegantly tells us, "as celebrated and celebrates the Russian people". History of rites, foreign and ancient Russian amusements, the Palace of ceremonies and Church traditions, interwoven with descriptions of the fun of the Russian rulers. The atmosphere of folk festivals convey the Christmas cards that adorned the book. Obsolete words of life, and Church vocabulary are explained in the dictionary, supplementing the edition.
