Happy Sunday!

My drear friends and readers,

It has been too long, and I’ve missed writing to you all! Being a mum, working full time, and doing all the work around the house is a tough job! But why should I complain, I love it – even though I am busy as a bee.🙂

How have you all been?

Today’s evening is a big religious holiday in Russia, Крещение – in English it sound like this “Baptism of Jesus”. Our tradition is to submerge oneself in the water, or just into the cold water, as the picture shows below:

This is the translation from Google:

Epiphany Eve the popular name of the day on the eve of the Epiphany.

Epiphany Eve – a nightpreparation before the big Orthodox holiday, which is called the Epiphany, or Epiphany. This celebration of the Orthodox Church is one of the Twelve. On this day, remember the baptism of Jesus Christ.

On the day of the holiday and the day of Epiphany Eve baptizing the water. In the courtyard of the temple attracted long lines of holy water.

 

Ummm, no exactly the correct translation, but hopefully you understood🙂 the idea.

So for all those who celebrate this day or don’t😉 Have a good one!
