Merry Christmas to all the folks here celebrating in Rus and elsewhere! January 6 is Christmas Eve (owing to the non-recognized switchover from the old calendar, and that just makes sense imnho), and is celebrated, after church and meetings are out of the way, with a 12-course dinner (one course for every apostle - even Judas! who probably gets the cranberry sauce, yuck).

Then on January 7 - Christmas and all the traditions that it holds in the North.

Ho ho ho everyone, and Merry Christmas!

From "Russia, Beyond the Headlines" 'Holiday Traditions in Russia spark magic' This is a very good article to learn about the Rus traditions on Christmas Eve and Christmas:

rbth.ru...


The Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Christmas in accordance with the Julian calendar, or "the old style", as it is known in Russia. That calendar is about a fortnight behind the modern, Gregorian calendar. So while a majority of the Christian world is celebrating Christmas on Dec. 25, Russians will wait until Jan. 7.

Yet, many centuries ago there was no time lag between the two calendars, and the Russian Christmas roughly coincided with the winter solstice, as in the rest of Europe.

Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating today! Enjoy the season!

For those of us in the west, the 12 days ended today, and it's time to stop listening to the music and take down the tree

Here's your picture of the food:




As a vegan I doubt if I'd eat it, yet as one of the 12 courses served on Russian Christmas Eve, some people must like it. What is it? Is it still moving?

Thanks for all the kind wishes everyone. May all your happiness grow from this day on, and the warmth of love light the winter.

By the look of it I'd say it's boiled wheat with nuts and raisins, and is one of the traditional Christmas meals.

We made some Uzbek plov on Sunday, but I doubt that's a traditional Russian Christmas dish. It was tasty though.

Merry Christmas to those on the other side of the world, and those who moved over here.

FYI: In Russia Christmas is mainly a religious holiday. Ded Moroz, a.k.a. Father Frost (Santa) comes on New Years Eve, usually in person and not like a thief in the night, to give gifts. A very regal looking man, compared to the western rag-tag Santa:

ahaha it's more or less that
But not in every home
it's what anyone can get but wheat/barley are tradition because that's what was the most grown crop for a long time (might still be, not sure) in Russia.

But you can cook it with rice but there's also honey.
As i remember people would go around houses offering this to their neighbours as a sign of friendship

Bumping this once more for those who are celebrating (or are interested) in Russian Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone! May the vodka flow like wine, and wine flow like water, and water flow like mango juice.
