eve. They have a HUGE feast. They don’t eat
any meat in Christmas season except on
Christmas eve and Christmas day. They have
plenty of Russian vodka and tea. They have
lots of leftovers.
• Christmas was a hard time for Russia during
the soviet union times. The children's parents
had no money and Russia went into debt.
Dads were sent off to war and most of the
children lost a loved one. At that time it was
a communist government.
