Dede is Getting Ready to Visit You!

Filed under: Christmas,contemporary,Orthodox,Russian — 01varvara @ 00.00

Dede Moroz (Grandpa Frost) visits the home of the Russian priest and his family in KĂžbenhavn (that’s Copenhagen for the geographically-challenged)

It’s that time of year… we are all rushing about preparing for the holidays, so, don’t forget that Dede needs to hear from you if he is going to pay a visit.

You do wish to hear troika bells outside your house on the right day, don’t you?
