For all my friends who are celebrating Orthodox Christmas, I wish you Merry Christmas.
The family were here for supper tonight. I am sure we had 12 different dishes but not all meatless and there was no buckwheat and honey in sight either.
I would like to go to the midnight service but it starts at midnight. So we have been watching the evening service from the Cathedral in Moscow and listening to the Patriarch's Christmas Message. Moscow is two hours ahead of us.
