Hello,yes,I know,of course,my parents came from Russia.And new Year is celebrated on January,13 th.
Very nice There are many things in the world that I don't know specially about other countries and cultures, That's why I enjoy learning new languages.
Grazie, Carmelo. Sapendo che ci sono molti russi qui che parlano italiano ti ringrazio anche al loro nome:))Hvala e spasiba:-)non so scrivere in cirillico russo, scusatemi.
And not only, there are some other countries whose churches respect so called Julian calendar which differs from the official Gregorian calendar in 13 days. That's why we celebrate Christmas 13 days later and there is also a custom to celebrate Orthodox New year on the January 13th - 14th. So we have two New Years both very celebrated and popular and since the country is surrounded by cathoclic countries with a lot of catholics who live in Serbia (Hungarians, Croatians, Slovenians)we could say that we celebrate two Christmases as well. This is very nice and I wanted to share it with all of you on Italki.
