Merry Christmas! [In Russia and other Orthodox countries]šŸ„‚ šŸŽ‰

1w ago

Orthodox churches celebrate Christmas 13 days after December 25 because they rely on the Julian calendar. While most Orthodox countries tend to celebrate 'traditional' Christmas as well, January 7 is Christmas Day - and therefore a public holiday - in Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Russia, and the Ukraine. Cheers!
