For its January issue, Domashny Ochag magazine is exploring traditions and why they are so important in a rapidly changing world. We should not only recall those traditions, but keep them alive so that the whole family feels that life continues on no matter what else is happening. Some traditions are new, and others have been passed down for generations, but they all preserve the sanctity of hearth and home.
The new issue also tips for preparing for New Year’s and Christmas, with ideas for decorating your home, creating a holiday spread, taking stylish photos, choosing the right dress and cultivating a feeling of thankfulness for life’s many blessings.
