Merry Christmas!


Before the sun rose this morning, we were up with my young nephew looking at Santa's delivery in the living room. :) What fun to watch kids and all their excitement on Christmas morning! I know this day is not widely observed in Russia, and that Orthodox Christmas is celebrated on 7 January. However, for all of my readers in the U.S. and abroad who are celebrating I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas! My mom is now in the kitchen cooking a hearty breakfast, and we will spend the rest of the day relaxing and welcoming family guests before we have a formal Christmas dinner this evening. Cheers!

P.S.: Should I publish reports in the blog next week, or will everyone be too busy with the New Year holiday to read? I'm off of work until 4 January, and will finally have time to write!

We have the same procedure in the morning of the 1st of January :)

BTW at what time is the sun rises now where you live?

In Moscow now the day is very short.
Sunrise: 09:00, Sunset: 15:59, Day length: 07:00

But in St. Petersburg it is even shorter!
Sunrise 10:02, Sunset 15:56, Day length 05:54

I was there last weekend and it was very strange when the train arrived at almost 9am in absolute darkness.

Sun rises around 7:30 am and sets around 4:45 pm here in Virginia. None of my Russian friends have children, so I've never seen the way kids celebrate on New Year's! This morning, my nephew knocked on my door at 6:30 am, ready to open presents. :)

Много не пей
Dec. 25th, 2015 03:23 pm (UTC)
I will not drink today. I usually only consume alcohol 3 -4 times per year.
Dec. 25th, 2015 03:10 pm (UTC)
Because it's Friday many russians do celebrate Xmas today though they don't celebrate it
Yes , you shall post during holidays
I didn't know Americans rest till 4 January, i though they are workaholics

No, we take vacations but there are less Federal holidays in the U.S. than in Russia. It's amazing Russians get so many days off in a row, at the end of the year and during the May holidays. A lot of people in the U.S. use vacation time to be off of work the last two weeks of the year, and some corporations shut down the last week. For instance, Toyota Motor Sales headquarters in Torrance, California. I know, because they are one of my clients. We are not all workaholics. This is a stereotype. :)
