‘Saddest Сhristmas Party Ever’ Held in Siberia (Video)

If you ever feel lonely this Christmas, don’t worry, you won’t be alone. 

Every evening in the frigid Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, three entertainers put on their costumes and trudge up to a stage in a public park for a dancing show.

They dress up as a pig, a dog and an elephant and dance like no one is watching — likely because there really is no one watching.

Night by night, the snow-packed space where the audience should be lies barren.

Social media users have called the show the “saddest party in Krasnoyarsk” after a video of the empty park was published on social media. 

Some have even promised to visit to support the local artists.

Here's a shout-out to the three dancing animals of Siberia.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
