After New Year’s Eve Russians celebrate Christmas. It happens that, Russia Christmas is celebrated at a smaller scale and with less enthusiasm. One of the reasons for the attitude toward this holiday is the fact that in Orthodoxy Christmas is observed on December 25 according to the Julian calendar, which is on January 7 according to the generally accepted Gregorian calendar. So, people expect most gifts and well wishes only on New Year’s Eve.
