Father FrostChristmas is finally here! I posted a new video on YouTube, where I’m sharing  the details about the Christmas celebration in Russian culture. Check it out:

Here is how you say Merry Christmas in Russian:

Счастливого Рождества! [shchas-LEE-va-va razh-deest-VA] Merry Christmas
Although,  “Счастливого Рождества” is translated literally as “Happy Christmas”.

A few more articles to help you learn some good Russian Christmas vocabulary:

Christmas Words in Russian. Lesson 1.
Christmas Words in Russian. Lesson 2.

And, of course, Russian Christmas and New Year’s characters you absolutely have to know:
Дед Мороз [dyed ma-ROZ] Father Frost (Russian Santa Claus)
Снегурочка [snee-GOO-rach-ka] Snow maid or Snegurochka

In my next video lesson I will tell you how exactly Christmas is currently celebrated in Russia, and will give you a few fun tips on how to get the most of the Russian Christmas eve!

Have fun learning Russian! :)
