Russian Christmas

On 7th January it was Christmas according to the Russian Orthodox calendar, there was a soft snow falling from the sky, and people were out celebrating in Lenin Square that evening.  So I wandered down with my camera to take some pictures.

    Nice town! Like Canada, Russia is nicer in winter. Then it’s snow.

    Great pictures! Next year I’ll have to go at night. I love all the lights!

    Good job getting the photos at night! There’s a Lenin Square in Khabarovsk, too. I guess every town in Russia has a “Lenin Square” huh?!
