Uilliam Lamberti told about the Italian and Russian features and about the attitude to presents in these countries.
About the Russian New Year. There are many occasions to congratulate each other in Italy. Christmas, Easter and other holidays. But in Russia there is the only holiday, which people value. It is of course New Year. While working in Russia I undoubtedly adopted some traditions. But I still can’t explain what is Old New Year.
About the childhood’s memories. Christmas was the main feast in my childhood. Once my dad presented me boxing gloves. After that I began boxing, which became my favorite kind of sport. When I became a father myself, I understood that the moment of giving presents is not like any other.
About the best presents. The best presents are spontaneous ones. I love to present flowers without any occasion.
