New Year is a magical holiday, being looked forward to by both adults and children. Regardless of one's religion, language or culture, people all around the world hope for good luck and happiness, and celebrate this holiday -every nation by their own traditions. However, the most important thing is that this holiday gives everyone hopes for a bright future and fulfillment of one's cherished desires.

Being a symbol of the New Year, an elegantly decorated Christmas tree brings everyone together on this festive day. On this day, people forget their worries and concerns, and enjoy the festive and magical moments of the New Year's Eve.

The Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center presented a new project this week: the "KUKNAR" (Christmas Tree) International Art Contest.

Christmas trees decorated in a completely new style will be presented during this competition, which is held for the first time.

The event, which brought together art lovers, artists, and architects, will allow others to see this New Year's symbol from an absolutely different and new aspect.

Participating in the two-month contest, about 18 artists and architects created Christmas trees of unusual shapes, some of them more than three meters high.

These 18 creations will be exhibited in the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center's park on December 21. Voting will be held during the exhibition, during which guests will choose their favorite creations, and then the winners of the contest will be announced. The winners will be awarded by diplomas and money prizes.
