Jumping from a Christmas Tree: The New Year’s Craze

A new sport has emerged in Russia, where people jump from a Christmas tree as a way of celebrating the new year. The sport, which is called “yolka jumping”, involves climbing up a decorated fir tree and leaping off it, landing on a pile of snow or a mattress.

The sport was invented by a group of friends who wanted to spice up their new year’s party. They said that they were bored of the traditional fireworks and champagne, and decided to try something more adventurous and fun.

“It’s a great way to feel the adrenaline and the joy of the new year. It’s also a good way to get rid of the old and welcome the new. We believe that the higher you jump, the better your luck will be in the next year,” one of the friends said.

The sport has become a viral sensation on social media, where people share videos and photos of their yolka jumping feats. Some have even challenged their friends and family to join them in the sport.
