Hello again. I am still sitting in my new home. The big man’s wife came in today. She’s really nice and I can tell she enjoys visiting me. She moved us around so that we can dry quicker. I will have to wait for a while before I can continue my adventure, so here’s another fun fact about my friends.
In the days of the Soviet Union, Christmas was not celebrated very much. New Year was the important time - when 'Father Frost' brought presents to children. With the fall of Communism, Christmas can be openly celebrated - either on December 25th; or more often on January 7th. This unusual date is because the Russian Orthodox Church uses the old 'Julian' calendar for religious celebration days. Special Christmas food includes cakes, pies and 'meat dumplings'.
