Christmas Svyatki ended with Epiphany on 19 January.
During the event, the schoolchildren watched a colorful presentation that introduced them to the history of the holidays Christmas and Epiphany. Children learnt about Svyatki, traditions and customs accompanying these holidays in Russia. Kids read poems about Christmas, learnt what the words “svyatki”, “Christmas Eve”, “carols”, “vertep” and other words related to the holidays mean. Children participated with great interest in folk folklore – “carols”. At the end, the reciters were rewarded with a treat, and all the participants were given small paper angels, a symbol of the Christmas holiday.
