Russia: Orthodox Church New Year!

I was drinking my morning cup of coffee & Svetochka said, “Do not forget about Orthodox New Year?”

How could I forget; In the past years the fireworks were going off until the sun comes up! I think Russians look for any reason to set off fireworks. So for your information: Coming up on the (January 14 – Old New Year 2022) is the, Orthodox Church New Year! (Remember Christmas was the 7th of January.)

It is not over yet in Russia. One more New Year….and yes, one more Orthodox Christmas on the 7th of January…

** (Technically Russians celebrate the Chinese New Year “Tuesday, February 1 is the Chinese New Year 2022” also and technically that is coming up and and and…Party time again)

Don’t take that tree down yet…

And get your proper food ready for the Orthodox New Year…
