  • Description

    The outgoing year is marked with unusual winter in Moscow.

    For its rainy spells it sooner reminds of late autumn.

    Streets, parks and open spaces are devoid of snow.

    It does not look like December at all.

    But the New Year is around the corner.

    and its approach is felt throughout...

    The central "Children's World" chain store of Moscow was the first to start preparations for the New Year celebrations.

    This major department store is well known to many generations of Soviet boys and girls.

    Shoppers find here everything for babies and 16 year-old.

    Neither small ones nor adults can't help stoping and admire the big and beautiful shop windows.

    The two beauties from the forest have appeared at the shop entrance overnight as if in a fairy tale.

    But the main Fir Tree is awaiting the children in the central hall of the shop.

    It stands more then ten metres high,
    smelling of coniferous forest and
    glistening and sparkling with decorations and
    multi-colour electric bulbs.

    The tree is full of lots of gifts and pleasant surprises.

    The funny snowman is also here, to be sure.

    The silver rain deer has rushed here Grand Father Frost, the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus.

    He has brought along a wealth of fir tree decorations, dolls, play things, books and what not!
    The stalls on the four stories of the shop offer children everything that brings them joy and happiness.

    More than two thousand shop assistants look especially smart and festive these days.

    Some three hundred thousand people do here their shopping every day.

    But the last days of December have seen an increase of shoppers up to four hundred thousand.

    Many manufacturers in this country supplied goods for every taste and fancy.

    The boys and girls are fascinated with a rainbow of toys, tinsels, balloons, masks, costumes, Bengal lights, candles and confetti...

    Snowmaiden -- granddaughter of Father Frost -- is the hostess of the hall where one can find everything for the Now Year party.

    Designers and all the staff of the department store have done their best to make a visit to their store a pleasure.

    Twenty - four more shops of Children's World firm are open for the young. in Moscow.
