Hello,Orthodox Christmas

I was drinking my cup of coffee and started to think about Russian Christmas. In Russia this is the actual Christmas. The 6th of January is Christmas Eve and the 7th is Russian Orthodox Christmas…

I get confused by all these holidays this time of the year. I just accept them and be happy that we have so many times to celebrate……

By the way Santa Clause (Ded Moroz) does not deliver presents at this Christmas :).

So one more time from Windows to Russia: Merry Christmas!

Orthodox Christmas; Peace on Earth…
