New Year's holidays in Russia


What about private companies and people in the regions?

Other companies can decide on their own, but the Mayor of Moscow recommended making this day a day off.

The President also recommended that Russia’s regions make their own decisions and promised that a Federal Law would be adopted in the coming years.

Thus, according to the current legislation, December 31, 2020, is a working day. After adopting the Federal Law, December 31 will officially become a holiday for the whole country.
The New Year holidays in 2021 will last from the 1st to the 10th of January. This period includes two public holidays, New Year — on January 1, and Orthodox Christmas — on January 7.
