I share my experience of living in Russia and visiting other Post-Soviet countries like Ukraine and Georgia. Some laconic notes and photos of people, events, places and my views on news most discussed among Russian bloggers and in Russian-speaking Internet in whole. Politics, life and fun.
 
 
 
 
 

Halloween in Russia

Halloween has become a popular youth holiday in Russian large cities. Many creative people celebrate Halloween at clubs and their homes. Mass character is new here. Nobody made Halloween parties in Soviet time but the idea of Halloween was known due to American movies. As I see Halloween gains much popularity last years...

Below you'll see 4 photos of my first true Halloween party at my home in 2004.

As you see most of costumes are handmade. Halloween is a chance to show your creativity so buying masks and costumes is not the best way, in my opinion... Anyway the most important thing is being ready for fun!

I prefer understanding Halloween as costumed party with "dark" atmosphere. You wear zombi mask? Cool! Black cloak
with gloves and big demonic amulet? Cool also! Putin mask is proper too!

I have never seen really true American Halloween party and it doesn't matter for me. I am not interested too much in the holiday authenticity. The most valuable is the opportunity of having costumed party with much fun and creativity.

We celebrated some kind of "preHalloween" this year. Actually it was costumed party with Halloween atmosphere =)
