    St. Nicholas is especially popular in Russia. Legend of the eleventh century Prince Vladimir baptized go to Constantinople, and returned with miracle story. Since then a lot has been named as a saint of the Orthodox Church, and to this day, a Russian boy Nicholas is the most common name.

     St. Nicholas Day (December 6) is observed in many centuries, but after the communist revolution, the celebration of the festival is suppressed. During the communist years St. Nicholas became a grandfather frost

    Other religious traditions are received in the communist era restrictions. Before the revolution, a man called babouschka give children gifts.

     Bei Fana like Italy, the story is babouschka three wise men failed to give food and shelter to watching the Christ child in their journey. According to tradition, she is still in the countryside looking for Christian children, and during the Christmas season to visit them in their homes.

     babouschka never completely disappeared, and now in the post-communist era, still exists. Christmas also banned the Communist regime, but people continue to reduce their "New Year's tree."

    Most Christians belong to the Russian Orthodox Church, which is used to continue until after the first Christmas Eve church services. Christmas Eve dinner is vegetarian. The most important ingredient is a special porridge called kutya.
