It looks like Ded Moroz is getting ready for his next run… that’s gonna be on New Year‘s Eve. That’s when he goes to all children’s homes… Jewish houses, Christian houses, Muslim houses, Buddhist houses, secular houses… he goes to EVERYONE. That’s as it should be. New Year’s is a day for every one of us. Yes… it’s good that there are days that we all share… just as it’s good that there are days just for Christians (or Jews or Muslims, etc). Six more days to get ready for New Year’s, and six more after that is Orthodox Christmas… phew!!!
No… I’m not gonna say, “Bah, humbug!” It’s tiring, but, let’s face it, it’s fun to get out of the ordinary routine.
