Reception celebrated Russian Christmas yesterday with Dr Bridges and her daughter. They learned about the 6 weeks before Christmas when Russian people eat a very basic diet, followed by a full 12 days of celebrations. Everyone tried some traditional Russian food called Sochivo, which is made from dried fruit, wheat and honey, with spices added, but, unfortunately, it was not to everyone's taste! The girls also all made a candle from beeswax like those they light in Russian Orthodox churches when they say their special Christmas prayers.
Thank you to Dr Bridges for sharing this special occasion with us.
