Children from many regions of Russia come to Moscow at the end of December to see this fabulous Christmas tree. About how the Kremlin Christmas tree 2020 will be held, our detailed review.
The history of the origin and address of the Kremlin Christmas tree in Moscow
In the first half of the last century, namely, in 1935, the first Kremlin tree in the country of soviets was held in Moscow. It was an unusually important event for the whole country. Thousands of children dreamed of getting on this magical holiday. The first Christmas tree for children was held in the Hall of Columns.
Later, in 1953, the main New Year's performance for schoolchildren who not only lived in the capital of the USSR, but also came to the festival from the provinces, was held at the Grand Kremlin Palace. Since then, this tradition of holding such a large-scale New Year's performance has become regular.
The first organizers of the Moscow New Year's holiday for children were metropolitan unions. According to the rules, tickets to this event, which was desirable for thousands of children, could only be obtained if the school was excellently studied. Among the best students, the pioneer counselors chose the most worthy children, who were awarded the cherished tickets for the Kremlin Christmas tree.
New Year's gifts for the guests of the holiday appeared almost immediately, though they looked much more modest then than now. The fist of sweets was wrapped in plain paper, without decorative elements and a special New Year decoration.
In 1963, the New Year tree for children in Moscow again changed its address. From this time to the present, the Kremlin Christmas tree is held in the Kremlin Palace of Congresses.
The Christmas tree for children in Moscow from year to year is unique. There are no two identical celebrations, and therefore, the popularity of this event is incredibly high among children of all ages.

In some years, the organizers of the tree invited famous writers, composers, screenwriters and artists to hold a New Year's performance for young guests. At different times, the Kremlin helped to conduct the Christmas tree: N. Dobronravov, Yu. Chichkov, A. Pakhmutova, A. Gorban, V. Shainsky, E. Simonov, I. Nezhny, M. Faybushevich, A. Zatsepin and others.

Reviews of children and parents about the Kremlin Christmas tree in Moscow
“I first took my son (9 years old) to the Kremlin tree this year. We decided that once every child should go to the main Christmas tree of the country, and we bought a ticket at a discount.
I want to tell everyone that in the Kremlin box office you can easily buy tickets for the Christmas tree in the Kremlin. The cost of a ticket with a coupon for parents and a gift for a child from 5-16 years old is 2400 rubles. Free seating tickets. In the hall, everyone present can take any place they like, and visibility from any place is the same.
My son and I arrived a little earlier than the appointed time and did not regret it. Start up in 1 hour 15 minutes. The line passes quickly, without fuss and nerves.
The performance itself lasts 1 hour. Before the performance, traditionally, an entertainment program near the Christmas tree, a disco. Also, a large-scale photo zone is organized here, where guests take colorful photos.
To undress my son was helped by volunteers who were there, literally, at every step.
Our view was called “The Mystery of the Planet Earth. New Year extravaganza. " My son really liked the performance, especially since space is his favorite topic. At the end of the holiday, children were given sweet presents. ”
“This year we went with the child to the Kremlin tree. My son is now 11 years old and he saw this show for the first time.
The performance was called The Secret of the Planet Earth. It seems to me that every child dreams of this tree, even in a dream.
As soon as we entered the lobby, we were greeted by animators, volunteers. Various workshops, photo zone work here. The child can do face painting. Around the children have fun and dance with animators. The atmosphere is awesome! There are even small slides from which young children rode.
The son entered the hall 20 minutes before the start of the performance. The seating was free, but everything happened very culturally and quickly. The plot of the performance is cosmic. Everything develops around good and evil (good earthlings and evil UFOs).
The performance involved Grandfather Frost, Snegurochka, Cosmonaut, Danila-master, Sadko and others. The whole planet Earth comes to the aid of good in order to defeat the evil of other worlds. And, of course, in the finale of the show, the good defeated the insidious plans of the UFO.
The whole performance took place in bright colors and is very beautiful and unforgettable. The musical accompaniment was also especially amazing. ”
“The first time I was with my daughter at the Kremlin tree. In general, the impressions were good.
As soon as we entered the Palace, we immediately drew attention to the wonderful scenery that were everywhere. Since I was there for the first time with my daughter, and we had only one hour, we examined everything.
In the lower foyer there were two small slides, a Christmas tree, everywhere there were artists and animators with whom you can easily take a picture. Everyone around is having fun and dancing. The atmosphere is very lively!
All playgrounds are located next to the stairs. On the right, I saw tables with checkers and puzzles, a monitor for which you need to repeat the movements, a magnetic fishing rod to simulate fishing and many other fun.
Some kind of New Year’s performance was already taking place in the lobby near the balcony, and there were very few people there. I drew attention to the tables with Lego. I also liked the charming magician. On the left staircase we saw a huge ring-throw.
Everywhere do face painting, the line that moves very quickly.
I really liked the performance. The scenery, the costumes, the plot are simply magnificent! ”
