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.

By the look of it I'd say it's boiled wheat with nuts and raisins, and is one of the traditional Christmas meals.
Ah, ymmmmm. Then I would eat it and ask for seconds, please.
