Christmas - take two!

As our Christmas celebrations were coming to a close things were just gearing up in Ukraine. Although some individuals may celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December, the nation as a whole celebrates on the 7th of January. This is in accordance to the Russian Orthodox Tradition which still adheres to the old Julian calendar. So here is a snapshot of a wonderfully decorated downtown Kiev...if you look really close you'll see about a dozen Santa Clauses across the street mingling with the crowd :)

Good year, good health
time passes, the years slip by. When a new year starts, one always wonders if it will bring peace and happiness to each one… Close the eyes and make a wish!
