It's Christmas! For me, it's the beginning of the holiday season that will last for four weeks. First, it's a traditional Christmas with my boyfriend's family. Then, a fun Russian New Year's celebration with my family. Then back for Russian Christmas, which is celebrated on January 7. And finally, Old New Year on January 13, which is the beginning of the year according to the Julian calendar. Old New Year is not an official holiday, but people like to celebrate it with a hint of irony.
Christmas also means a lot of my favorite things:
Great TV & Christmas movies
Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
Agatha Christie's Poirot
Miss Fisher's Murders Mysteries
And wonderful music
Have a great one, everyone!
