    Ice Slide next to Red Square, New Year

    In Moscow it’s something of a tradition to go down to Red Square during the festive season, ice skate and soak up the atmosphere.

    Catholic Christmas and New Year are bundled up into one and celebrated together – with a particular Soviet twist.

    Orthodox Christmas falls on January the 7th.

    Here’s my report on festivities from the centre of Moscow.
