From life-size puppets to Rostokin “umks”: how New Year's Moscow has changed

Until 1700, in Moscow, as well as throughout Russia, the New Year was celebrated on the Day of Knowledge – September 1. The centuries-old tradition was changed by Peter I, who signed two decrees in 1699: on the introduction of a new chronology system and on the celebration of the New Year. In the same year, the first discreet decorations – Christmas tree, pine and juniper branches – appeared for the first time on the central streets of Moscow. This custom came to the homes of ordinary Muscovites from the homes of Europeans who lived in the German settlement. The New Year celebrations lasted seven days. All this time, the townspeople congratulated each other, burned fires in empty barrels in the streets and attended trade fairs.

The first public Christmas tree on the territory of Moscow appeared in the 1850s in the building of the Noble Assembly in Okhotny Ryad (modern House of Unions). Within its walls, nobles, merchants and industrialists every year organized New Year's charity concerts for children. In the fifties, festive traditions appeared in Moscow, which are known to the townspeople today. The country's main Christmas tree is being erected on Cathedral Square, the Manege building becomes a venue for New Year's concerts and fairs, and street decorations begin to take on a new form.

Long before the New Year's image of Moscow was changed by garlands and light installations, city decorations were more than modest. Until the middle of the 19th century, New Year's toys were not cheap, so cardboard and wooden figures, fruits and sweets were used to decorate the city. One could not even dream of festive illumination in the years when electricity was rare and expensive. Garlands, which Muscovites are not even surprised with today, became part of the festive decoration only at the end of the 19th century.

After the 1917 revolution, the tree disappeared from the streets of New Year's Moscow for almost 20 years for ideological reasons. The return of the main symbol of the New Year took place only in 1935. By that time, Soviet craftsmen had become skilled at creating toys from glass, and the artels resumed the production of Christmas balls and figures.

Until the end of the 20th century, there was no single concept of New Year's decoration for Moscow as such. Christmas trees were installed in the main squares and avenues of the city, and garlands were hung there. Only the central streets were illuminated with festive lighting. The first developments in the field of lighting design in the capital, including its festive decoration, date back to the early 80s. Their further development was interrupted by the beginning of perestroika.

Moscow gradually began to come to its modern winter appearance at the beginning of the 2000s. It was still far from large-scale festive illumination, but the streets were already decorated with iridescent banners, Christmas balls and light ribbons were hung on the facades of buildings, and life-size figures of fairy-tale characters were placed at the entrances to shops and restaurants. And some stores arranged spectacular installations in their windows.

Over the next few years, urban decorations began to take on experimental forms. On the streets of Moscow & # 34; grew & # 34; fabulous forests sparkling with neon and lights, boulevards have acquired a special festive look thanks to the thematic design. At the same time, artificial trees gained popularity. Thanks to advancing engineering and lighting technologies, they became taller, larger and brighter and were in no way inferior to the real ones.

Since the beginning of the tenth years, not a single boulevard has remained in the center of New Year's Moscow that was not decorated in a festive style. Every year the city pleases tourists and townspeople with an abundance of fairgrounds, light of garlands and unusual installations.

This year, for the Christmas and New Year holidays, specialists of the municipal economy complex installed in Moscow more than 4 thousand volumetric decorative structures, including light tunnels and arches, sheds made of garlands, Christmas balls. Today, modern energy-saving equipment based on LEDs is used to decorate the city. Such lamps consume ten times less electricity, are safe and are designed to work in all weather conditions.

Squares, streets, parks and squares throughout the city have been decorated with more than a thousand fir trees this year. New Year's trees from 6 to 25 meters in height were decorated with colorful balls, garlands, stars and other decorations. The largest spruces were installed on Lubyanskaya and Slavyanskaya squares, as well as on Poklonnaya Gora.

The inhabitants themselves also influence how a modern city will look in winter. So, last year Muscovites insisted on returning the installation & # 34; Polar Bears & # 34; in Rostokino. For the first time, a design depicting Umka the bear and his mother-bear appeared in the north of the capital four years ago. The townspeople immediately fell in love with the installation, and on the very first weekend the art object broke attendance records. In 2019, the bears moved – they were installed on the embankment in Gorky Park, but then the residents of Rostokin turned to the city authorities with a request to return the structure to the aqueduct.
