I'll second that!

Am I right in suspecting that our Russian members are celebrating a special Christmas celebration at a different time to me?

If so.. then MERRY CHRISTMAS ... or whatever is whatever is the special words for it.

Yes, the Russian orthodox church* celebrates Christmas according to the Julian calendar (why would they use the calendar that some Roman pope had made up?), so they're a couple of days behind.

During Soviet Union times they didn't officially celebrate Christmas at all, but only New Year (Gregorian calender this time) with Grandfather Frost bringing the presents.

*Like all eastern churches, I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong!
