Как рассказать иностранцу о Рождестве в России — кратко
Christmas in Russia is celebrated on January 7th.
After the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Bolsheviks banned Christmas celebrations. Many Christmas traditions, such as decorating a tree and giving presents, turned into New Year’s traditions. Christmas became an official holiday and a non-labor day in Russia in 1991.
New Year’s Day, January 1st, precedes the Russian Christmas and is often celebrated as a more important holiday. The Russian President Vladimir Putin annually attend a Christmas liturgy. The Russian Orthodox Church celebrates religious holidays according to the Julian calendar. Russia uses the Gregorian calendar for secular purposes since 1918. Orthodox Christmas is a national holiday in Russia so banks and public offices are closed on January 7. If Christmas Day falls on a weekend, the non-labor day moves to the following Monday. Russian authorities declare a New Year vacation from January 1 to 10 due to the close proximity of New Year’s holidays (January 1-5), Christmas and the weekends between these two holidays.
Many homes have Christmas trees.
Some people fast (they don’t eat anything) on Christmas Eve, until the first star has appeared in the sky. Many people go to the midnight Church services.They get home from Church — sometimes not until 2.00am or 4.00am!
On January 7, families attend Church and settle down for a Christmas dinner. Christmas service is one of the most beautiful and important services in the year. Nowadays, Christmas church services are shown on TV, so that you can be part of the big holiday even if you are far away from a nearest church.
Making a wish on this night is also a common tradition.
Even though Russians do not celebrate Christmas in a grand-scale manner as they do on New Year’s Eve, they find it very enjoyable and delightful.
