Traditionally in Russia people purchase gifts to put them under the spruce to relatives and friends at the New year eve.
Therefore, before the New Year night especially in the last days until December 31, you can find many decorations, toys, sweets and gifts in shopping centers. Buying presents to my family is very pleasantly.
The next day after I purchased gifts for my loved ones I went to my garden as I needed to clean there since snowfall was every day all previous week. The weather was cloudy, light snow and temperature was about -1 C(30F).
I show you photos of the woods around the garden and of my little pines with snow those I cleared and decorated.
Happy New 2019 year! The best wishes from Santa and me !
