ROMANOV FAMILY: ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS. OLGA ROMANOV – 9 JANUARY, 1913
From 1913 diary of Olga Romanov:
ROMANOV FAMILY: LAST IMPERIAL CHRISTMAS BEFORE THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
1916 was the last full year for the Romanovs as the reigning family of Russia. Tsar Nicholas II would abdicate his throne in March of 1917 and the Russian revolution would end life as the Romanov family knew it.

CELEBRATING ORTHODOX CHRISTMAS
by George Hawkins
In the Orthodox Faith, Christmas is one of our most important celebrations. The Feast of the Nativity is one of the twelve Great Feasts of the Church. Over and above the twelve Great Feasts is the Feast of Feasts – Pascha (Easter). In the Orthodox Church, Christmas is sometimes known as the Winter Pascha, showing its importance to the Christian Faith.
