Historically, Russians call such a tree as the New Year tree. So if apply the phrase “the Christmas tree”, it would be incorrect and Russians would be urged to prompt you to say the tree name in the right way.

In Russia Christmas is celebrated according to the Orthodox church calendar, i.e. on January 7th.

As Christmas became an official national holiday, Russian tend to have long time off right after the celebration of the New Year. This time we are going to rest from work till January 10th, 2011.

So, please, don’t be surprised, when you’ll find out the announcement on the door of the Russian Consular Devision in your country saying that it will resume its work on January 11th only.
