Christmas in Russia has gone through many changes. Christmas was banned as a religious holiday in 1929 and Christmas Trees were banned until 1935 when they turned into ‘New Year’ Trees. The focus in Russia is really on New Years.
While it is now legal to celebrate Christmas it is not a big holiday there. The religions are not typically the ones that have a Christian base.
This may prove a really good point. Where should Christmas truly be celebrated? I think my answer would be from the heart in the quiet way you show and share unconditional love. I bet that is how those who celebrate do it in Russia.
Do you agree with the premise?
