366 Macro World – Day 7

7/366 – Happy Russian Christmas! Today is Christmas according to the Gregorian calendar. My mother-in-law was a daughter of Ukrainian immigrants (Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic) and taught her children about this difference of when folks celebrated Christmas. So they celebrated both ‘Normal’ Christmas and ‘Little’ or ‘Russian’ Christmas. My husband and I keep the tradition alive in our family as well and we celebrate both Christmas days. ‘Russian Santa’ leaves a few small gifts in our stockings, and the kids love that Christmas doesn’t end on December 26th.
