Almost everywhere I go in Russia, there are Christmas decorations still up. Ithe decorations are up whether they are inside or out. i have two explanations. One is that Christmas was denied so long that they have to make up for it. That may be why so many new orthodox churches may be found everywhere. The religious god took the place of the communist god.The other is by the time it gets warm enough to take them down, there are only 6 more months before they have to be up again.
