Old New Year in Russian style celebrated in San Francisco


The All-Cossack Alliance of San Francisco hosted the Old Style New Year's Eve. The holiday brought together members of the Congress of Russian Americans (CRA), representatives of the Russian community and their friends. According to the organizers, Russian balls have become a significant event in the cultural life of San Francisco over the past 100 years.

According to representatives of the CRA, the League of Russian-American Women organized a virtual Christmas party for students of Russian schools in the USA, during which a concert and a meeting of children with Santa Claus took place. In-person events were also held, during which the New Year's wizard handed children sets of Russian sweets.

Last year, despite the pandemic that made adjustments to the CRA's program of activities, the organization was able to carry out many activities aimed at combating Russophobia, promoting Russian culture, cooperation between Moscow and Washington in the educational sphere, and supporting the sick and those in need.
