  1. I thought I was wrong, but it’s correct.
    It’s not very important, only for Curiosity – History.

    Exactly 100 years ago, Russian citizens had half a month cut off from their lives: 13 days in February 1918.
    Christmas in Russia is different from Christmas celebrated in the rest of the world. It is celebrated on the 7th of January instead of the 25th of December.

  2. Moscow has grown as a city, this means that the UHI (Urban Heat Island) effect has increased a lot over the years. That means that all record low temperatures are evidence of cooling, while all record highs have (almost) no meaning, because it’s only logical that a fast growing city becomes hotter.

  3. yeah i was informed of the moved date as friend said he was having an op on 24th dec in russia
    i was amazed the specialists worked on that date
    so he explained the different setup there.
    not everyone globally uses the same religions or calendar dates for similar events..
    and yesterday 8Jan 2019 was my first sighting of EASTER BUNS! for sale in Aus
    crass commercialism to the max

  4. The difference in Christmas dates arises because civil calendars worldwide now use the Gregorian calendar. First introduced in Italy in the 16th century to replace the old Julian calendar its use spread – the U.K. changed in 1752 (and people lost 11 days in September – the US also changed because it was still British). Russia changed in 1918 and Greece was the last European country to change in 1923. Catholic and Protestant churches also switched to the new Gregorian calendar, but not the orthodox churches. Hence they still use the old Christmas Day calculated according to the old Julian calendar, which means it is 7 January in the Gregorian!
