Winter… it’s a time when your dreams come true! New Year’s Day is the most popular holiday in Russia. Not only children but grown-ups love this magic holiday very much!
In my early childhood I used to write letters to Santa Claus. I hoped one day he would come. So when I was six I wrote to him again and asked to give me a big doll. I had been waiting for him for some days but unfortunately he didn’t appear. I was so upset that I began crying. When I woke up the next morning, I saw a beautiful big box next to the Christmas tree. Immediately I opened it and saw a doll. I was so surprised, but very happy. I believed it had been Santa Claus. I’ll never forget this magical moment of my life.
