Despite the fact that the most anticipated New Year holiday, he always comes suddenly. Even yesterday, we just thought about the gifts, and today we congratulate each other at a table. Who is he comes from a song from the children's cartoon "Tell Maiden, where it was .." or "Well, hare, wait a minute ..", and for someone sneaks up from behind a corner enveloping wave of fun and asking: "Well, not waiting for? ".
And those who do not have time to prepare for the holiday again take part in the annual reality show "Catch 24" hours, and then sit at the holiday table completely exhausted, but with a sense of accomplishment.
And so I want to believe that there are still people in the Russian land, which for the holiday are prepared in advance, and the day before New Year slowly crumble vegetables for a loved one, "Olivier", slicing carrots into sticks, and of potatoes, making chic snowflakes casually coming up with New Year's competitions and humming under his breath "in the forest was born herringbone ...».
For those who have not forgotten the importance massovika entertainer on Christmas carnivals and we have prepared a script for another fun, which involves the testing of knowledge of the New Year film. However, you can compete not only on the length of the list of films that managed to recall both teams. To complicate the competition is easy - just call to offer movies in the order of the screens, or alternating genres.
"Carnival Night", "Enjoy Your Bath", "Magicians", "Frost", and so on ... "Three Wishes for Cinderella" - this film is a fairy tale-like, not only here but also in the Czech Republic, the home of the founders.
If such a game was held, for example, in Connecticut, on New Year's corporate party of one of the factories, the films on the list would be required to "A Christmas Carol" and the cartoon "The Polar Express." Amazing film, which was five times nominated for an Oscar and won the Golden Globe - "It's a Wonderful Life", he is now the leader in the national charts, but took him back in 1946.
All part of the fun of Christmas comedy "Home Alone" loved and welcome both abroad and in Russia.
