With age, sometimes there is an irresistible desire to remember your childhood, to feel some nostalgia for the times of the USSR. For some reason, the New Year in the Soviet style most reminds those over thirty of the times that, despite the scarcity, you remember with rapture of the heart, considering them the best.

Variety of Christmas decorations

Often, the Christmas tree in Soviet families was dressed up with an abundance of toys and decorations. Clothespin toys deserve special attention, which are very convenient to attach to the middle of the Christmas tree branch. In the form of which only they were not presented: Santa Claus, Snowman, Snow Maiden, candle, matryoshka.

The balls, as now, were of different sizes, but the unique zest was in the balls with round hollows, into which the light of the garlands fell, creating a fabulous illumination throughout the Christmas tree. There were also phosphor-patterned orbs that glowed in the dark.

Because New Yearcomes at midnight, toys in the form of watches were produced. They were given a central place on the tree. Often such Soviet Christmas decorations were hung at the very top, just below the top of the head, which, of course, was decorated with a red star - the main Soviet symbol.

Even Christmas decorations of those times were represented by decorations made of large glass beads and beads. Usually they were hung on the lower or middle branches. Old Soviet toys, especially pre-war ones, are carefully kept and passed from grandmothers to grandchildren.

Icicles, houses, clocks, animals, balls, stars made a unique New Year's composition.
