In some families and communities they were celebrated, but unofficially. Of course definitely not as state holidays)

Strange as it may seem, but just before Easter each spring traditional Easter cakes were mass-produced and sold, for instance.

It would be impossible to imagine a Soviet Christmas card - New Year was the equivalent, without any religious context.

This stamps the Soviet Union to the various memorials in this country. Various dates in the Great Patriotic War, the creation of the Armed Forces of the USSR.

Привет,
может у кого-то есть на обмен открытка из серии "Читай книгу - будь личностью" с Антоном Комоловым?
Могу обменять на практически любую открытку с Украины, или напишите о вашем виш-листе/фаворитах. В личку. Спасибо.

Hello! I received a postcard from a Russian user with almost no text in English, it's mostly in Russian. Unfortunately I don't think I will be taking the sender's advice and learn Russian language any time in the near future. :) Is there anyone here who can help me translate it? You can see it here:

Thank you so much in advance!! :)

"Hello Kristina,
Big Hello from Russia, wishing you health, love and good luck.
Kristin, you speak so many languages, do learn Russian language, please. I speak Russian, Chinese, French, but can't speak English or Esperanto at all (as well as many other languages). I have no idea what you like so I chose this hand-made card for you.
Marina.
Moscow, Russia.
January 29, 2016"

The text in red ink says: "Happy New Year 2016!"
-----

And may I add, in case you are interested, that the triangular stamp features traditional Russian pattern of ceramic tile. :)

Does anyone know where I can purchase music merchandise online (such as a flag, postcard, magazine, T-shirt, etc) of any of the musicians listed in my signature? Most specifically Митя Фомин, but any would be nice.

It's really important to me. :) I'm happy to arrange a trade as well.

Also I would like to trade for a large Russian flag that was made in Russia, rare Joseph Stalin stuff, or children's learning Russian books (so I can practice the Russian language) :thumbup: Спасибо!

Hello!

I would like to learn how to write Cryilic correctly (or pointers on how to write Russian addresses in Cryilic) and was wondering if anyone knows stroke order worksheets like this one:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DfDGpnAhocY/VGqVVyOLZNI/AAAAAAACdqM/GUn5d...

I do not have easy access to a printer and one Official I got said that he lives in rural Russia. If the address is written in English instead of Cryilic, the postal service loses his cards because they do not know English well. Because of it, I tried to write in Cryilic but the card still expired :( I think it was because of my horrible handwriting so I want to learn. I send a lot of Official cards to Russian Postcrossers.

HalfMist, have you thought about printing the addresses?
I believe the Cyrillic letters you see when you get official addresses on PC (if provided by the user) are shown correctly (but here in the forums they don't, unless you have Cyrillic alphabet installed on your computer).

Edited:
Oh, I see you have no access to a printer at the moment, sorry :embarassed:
I'll try to find some worksheets for you.

I know. :( I technically could print out the address by going to a print store or the library and print it for .10$-.50$ a page. I wish there was a way to print multiple address on 1 sheet of paper. If I could do that on a public computer, and just do Officials 5 cards at a time, I think I could manage.


buuuuuttttt I think learning how to write it will make it easier for me to write in Russian and use the language ;). There's this really good Russian podcast my fiance got me into about a year ago which made it easy to pick up certain words and sayings. I'm too embarrassed to really practice speaking (and there's not really a Russian community to practice it with in Hawaii) but I figured writing and reading could be easier.

Thanks!! I have translation worksheet that I'm also using side by side with it. Are the lower case letters necessary for addresses or would I be able to get by on just the capital letters?

Tell me, Samantha, do you actually have the address in Cyrillic on your screen? Or do you wish to transcribe it from Latin letters yourself (which can be tricky)?
The lower case letters differ a lot when writing in cursive, but I think you'll be OK if you use only capital letters.

Some more pics:

And here you can see the cursive writing (all lower case):

If you'd like any help with this address, just u2u ;)

Some of the Russian postcrossers give only an English address, others give the English address first and then Cryilic address underneath (similar to some Chinese and Japanese postcrossers I've come across).

I'm thinking of testing it out by sending two cards to my next Russian postcrosser. One in English and the other in translated Cryilic and see which one arrives faster. I've noticed that Russians living on the left-hand-ish side of the country (especially in St. Petersburg) have gotten my cards faster than the ones living in central or right-hand-ish side of Russia.

In the big cities are centers of sorting mail (St. Petersburg) and they can get faster.
