CHRISTMAS IN RUSSIA
The Russian Orthodox Church uses the old calendar for church festivals. There is a difference between the modern and the old calendars .
So, Russian people celebrate Christmas on January 7 but other countries celebrate it in December 25.
Russian people prepare for this day beforehand. They go to the supermarket and buy a lot of tasty things. Then they send greeting cards to their relatives and friends.
On this day Russian people go to the church. Coming home, they have Christmas dinner. Our families also celebrate Christmas. Mums cook cakes and make salads. We invite our friends to come to the Christmas party. After dinner our parents and guests watch TV. And we, children, play games. We love Christmas very much.
