The atmosphere of the Rostov house speaks:
'Never had the amorous air in the Rostov's house, the atmosphere of being in love, manifested itself so strongly as during these festive days. "Seize the moments of happiness, make them love you, fall in love yourself! That is the only real thing in this world- the rest is all nonsense. And that is the one thing we're taken up with here," said this atmosphere.'
