Merry Christmas! None of my Russian friends celebrate this day, and how about you? I arrived at my desk this morning, opened LJ and read this funny post. I'm passing it along for all the single, lonely ladies in America. Maybe you're desperate for a Russian man? After all, we have no options here - all American men are stupid and gay! :)) I don't know what "кончиттывурст" means and online translation doesn't work for the term. What is the English equivalent? Honestly, I can't tell if some posts in the pora_valit community are serious, or subtle trolling/sarcasm? I rarely understand Russian humor.

Perhaps this is a new way to fund my travels? :) Marry foreigners desperate for U.S. citizenship in exchange for payment? What do you think? :)) A reader today asked me to write a post about the differences between American and Russian women,  but I don't know many Russian females, so I can't provide an informed opinion on the topic. All of my close Russian friends are men. Maybe some of my readers now living in the U.S. wish to provide insight?

Я вот что решил.Мне не место в России. Надоело здесь все, ну, в общем, вы понимаете.
Однако, сильно напрягаться ради поравалить я не готов и поэтому придумал небольшой план.

Я хочу свалить в США, познакомившись с русскоязычной американкой. Как известно, США давно загнились, мужиков там толковых нет, одни кончиттывурст и геи. А женщинам одиноко. В общем, план понятен.

Вопрос: где знакомиться с гражданками США? И что в практическом плане дадут отношения с женщиной-резидентом? Ну, там ВНЖ или еще чего.

I suppose all your friends are russofobes, and they hate all connected with Russia, holidays, people, culture. There are many such people, living in Russia. Christmas is great holiday in Russia and all my friends and close families celebrate this holiday.

No, all my friends aren't Russophobes. They just aren't religious. As far as I know, Christmas in Russia is a purely religious holiday, whereas in America Christmas is celebrated by everyone and has become secular in many ways. How do you celebrate? Just by going to church, or there are other traditions?

Some traditions
My Church is located in Menlo Park, CA. It's very small church.
Currently, we don't have services during the week. My family visited church in SF for the Christmas service.
My Church is going to have beautiful service over the coming weekend plus "елка" and concert for children. We are expecting about 44 children to attend this event.
All children will receive gifts. I have to mention that not all of these children are from religious families. They are coming for fun, games and "елка"!
I am not sure about this year, but last year the best Sunday school students received special rewords.

Re: Some traditions
Great! It's nice that you can keep some native traditions, even in America. :) I see many Russian and Eastern Orthodox churches in my U.S. travels.

That's right. In the West, Christmas comes first, so it's THE big day. In Russia you have the NY first.

lol, in fact only 4% of Russians go to church on Christmas, orthodoxy ain't as demanding as protestantism...
