Christmas in Russia

You know when Christmas is, don’t you? Of course, it’s Dec. 25th. But in Russia, it is not. They celebrate Christmas on Jan. 7th. That is because the Russian Orthodox Church decides on its festival by the Julian calendar.

Almost all countries in the world use the Gregorian calendar and Christmas is decided on by it. So it makes a difference like this.

If you like Christmas very well, I think you had better go to Russia on Jan. 7th.


※ Now Russia celebrates on Dec. 25th, but it’s not common. The Main Christmas is on Jan. 7th.
