This is what most Russian people think of for the New Year. In Russia, New Year is the gift-giving time and Christmas is a religious holyday… isn’t that a right proper way to keep holy things holy?

18 August 2014. WTF! It’s Got to be Russia!

00 izba in Russia. 16.08.14

The above is a real-life izba (Russian log house)… it’s not a museum exhibit. People actually live in it… and, let me tell ya, izbas are WARM n’ COSY in the wintertime… Russians do know a thing or two about cold. Why the colour? That’s simple… when snow covers the ground from November to March, it makes it easy to find home when it’s all white, the wind is biting despite wearing a quilted jacket and furs, and it’s -20 (-4 Fahrenheit) outside. People do things that they do for a reason, kids… WTF! It HAS to be Russia… you can’t understand it with your mind, you can only accept it for what it is
