    ...at midnight CET.

    Most of you would call it Russian New Year.

    It's all about Julian calender, which is 13 days late after the Gregorian.

    So, after fireworks and shooting into the air - it's again turn to sit at the tables and continue with the feast.

    Next weird New Year is Chinese. January 31st midnight in China's time zone.
