That’s “happy New Year,” po Russkie. A friend recently sent me a link to another Russian animated short:
I had a nice time back in the Midwest for the holidays, enjoying the ~20° weather most days and spending lots of quality time with family and friends. Now we’re well into another new year, and I’m still sorting out how best to prioritize my non-resolutions. I’m also looking into the possibility of teaching a college-level composition course, which would surely be a wonderfully enriching experience. Aside from that, all is well… and I’m thinking about writing some new stuff to share with my writing group, which would be a nice way to keep my creative juices flowing.
明けましておめでとうございます; С Новым годом; Happy New Year!
