The Best Place for Christmas is Home

About 47% of Russian people plan to spend their long Christmas holidays at home. About 4% of the Russians want to go abroad, and the same amount plans to travel throughout the country, according to the website.

      10% of the Russians will stay on a visit to their friends and relatives, and 3% will be celebrating at their country villages.

      The last year, 56% of the Russians planned to stay at home during New Year and Christmas holidays.

      According to, almost one in nine people (11%) will be working on holidays, which is 2% more than in the last year. One in seven respondents (15%) in the age till 24 isn't going to have his Christmas rest. 

      "The harder you work the more you earn", "My bosses don't ask me if I want to work or not..." - some of the respondents' answers.

      This year Russia will be celebrating the traditional winter holidays since December 31 to January 9 inclusively. Though these 13 days are officially considered as days off for the Russians, the majority of banks, shops, consumers services and cultural objects aren't going to stop their work. And the amount of such "willing horses" increases every year.
