Merry Orthodox Christmas!!!

Today is Orthodox Christmas which is also Russian Christmas!  The biggest surprise that there is -15C (I am serious -15!!!) in Atlanta, and +1 C in Moscow.  Unbelievable, but it’s true.  Yesterday I talked to my Moscow friend over Skype, and she complained that winter didn’t come to Russia yet…And it’s hard to imagine/celebrate New Year and Christmas without snow…Of course, if you live in Africa, you probably finally manage somehow to use a palm tree instead of a Christmas tree… But if you are in Russia-snow at the New Year is a must…  Probably all snow was saved for the Olympics…Who knows…But in Atlanta, it’s opposite-today was a real snow with huge and beautiful snowflakes.  Well, Atlanta is not ready for that.  No one has really warm clothes (I personally left all appropriate outfits in Russia), or skates…or winter loving mood.  School was canceled for tomorrow because of extreme (for Atlanta) cold weather!  It was supposed to be the first school day after the break.  Probably it was a special Santa Claus (Grandfather Frost) present for Russian kids at the Russian Christmas!  Merry Christmas to y’all!
