Tangerines and champagne were not always the main symbols of the New Year: not everyone could afford them. For example, at the end of the 19th century tangerines cost 1 ruble 45 kopes a dozen. For this money, you could buy two chickens (70 kopeks apiece) Thanks to the catalog of the "Mur & Merilise" trading house, today we can find out what presents were exchanged in the 19th century and how much one could pay for toys from the capital's expensive stores. For example, in the 1890s the cost of dolls ranged from 35 kopeks to 5 rubles and up. The average salary of a Moscow professor at that time was 275 rubles a month; a worker received on average 14 rubles a month.
