Photographer's Note

In Moldova the New Year is celebrated before the Orthodox Christmas. It happens because all religious Orthodox holidays are calculated according to Julian calendar (the so called "old style"), but not according to Gregorian calendar which is accepted all over the world (the "new style"). By the way, according to this calendar the Orthodox New Year comes on January, 14. It is funny, but the majority of population in Moldova (as well as in Russia) celebrate it either! And can you guess how it is called? You will laugh: "The Old New Year"!
