In the Forest was Born a Christmas Tree…

A wonderful Russian song about the Christmas tree:

Christmas songs – “born in the forest a Tree”
The forest was born a Christmas Tree,
In the forest it grew,
Winter and summer slender, green it was.
Winter and summer slender, green it was.

The blizzard then sang her song:
“Sleep, Christmas Tree, bye-bye!”
Frosty snow soon wrapped:
“Look, it does not freeze!”
Frosty snow swathing it:
“Look, it does not freeze!”

Coward the gray rabbit hid
Under the Christmas tree did dance.
He ran to hide, Sometimes as a wolf, would cross.
He ran to hide, Sometimes a wolf, would cross.

Hark! Sound through the Snow in the woods a frequent
creaking runners of a sled;
Horse trotted in a hurry, running.
Horse trotted in a hurry, running.

Lucky horse to pull the sled,
And the woodsman was peasant,
He cut down our Christmas tree at the base.
He cut down our Christmas tree at the base.

And here she is, all dressed up,
On the New Year came to us,
And brought many, many kids much joy.
And brought many, many kids much joy.

Merry New Year!

Russian Video: They call it “The Crazy Song?”

According to the Youtube site this song is 27 years old! It was found in an envelope of old stuff…

Have no idea who it is but it is about Moscow, Russia and I like it. The owners of the found song said: “If the old envelope that I found the master tape in is right, then this song dates back to 1983 – that’s 27 years old! It didn’t have a title so I’ve called it this and even made up a a name for the band…”

Hope you enjoy it and it has lots of old pictures and it is a video made a long time ago…

Russian Video: Russian Crazy and Russian Driving….

Russians really have no concept of defensive driving. They run red lights like it is a law that they are suppose to run them. They drive right through any intersection like they have closed their eyes and hope God drives for them. This short video is so common to experience while you drive Moscow. This video is about St. Petersburg but as I see they drive the same there also…

In Russia I look both ways three times before I take off from a stop light and it has saved us multiples of time from having what you see in the video as a wreck. The light could be red and sometimes 20 cars will continue through it and not stop. The people with a green light have to either wreck there car or wait. It is the person that runs a red light after everyone is stopped that gets you. I have seen people drive up on the sidewalk and around the cars stopped at a red light and drive into the intersection and wreck…

All you can do is wonder are they really that bad of drivers?
