‘Please join IZBA Club for a celebration of Russian holy nights at Pushkin House. We will sing spiritual songs, dress up as Christmas figures and go wassailing around the village. Expect fortune-telling and ritual treats. We’ll sing Kaliadki from Russia, Ukraine and Belorussia. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience traditional culture in a festive and playful setting in our hospitable IZBA.
Russia and other Christian Orthodox countries celebrate Christmas on the 6th January. It marks the beginning of the festive Sviatki season that stretches until Epiphany on the 19th January. This holiday season is filled with folk traditions many of which you will be able to experience live in our CELEBRATION at the IZBA CLUB.’ (PH)
