Christmas magic

Christmas  magic  anticipation

December 25 on the Julian calendar actually falls on January 7 on the Gregorian calendar.

Christmas is a holiday on January 7 in countries such as Belarus, Egypt, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Russia, Ukraine.

Interesting, for the foreigners-incomers people coming from countries celebrating on Jan.7 Christmas time is a long holiday season. Many people start celebrating Christmas on Dec.25 with their new friends accepting local tradition, then continue New Year Eve with festive parties, enjoy New Year Day with their families and finally celebrate Christmas on Jan.7 with homeland friends and relatives keeping own tradition.

    What a hilarious memory from my childhood. Christmas trees were discarded on New Year’s day. The Serbians would then shop the alleys for free trees.

    The funny part was getting old enough to see them window shopping the trees beforehand: pointing, smiling, nodding.

    Everyone knew and nobody cared. And trees were always put out gently for that very reason. I’d totally forgotten that – thanks. 🙂

  4. Here in Portugal it almost all finishes by Christmas Day as the main celebration is Christmas Eve, however the decorations, cakes and amazing nativity scenes usually remain until Epiphany.
