We got back from Turkey just in time to celebrate Christmas Moldovan style. Christmas is celebrated here by most on January 7, following the old calendar. It is my understanding that Christmas lasts for several days here. The first day is usually spent with family while the second and third days are spent entertaining guests. We spent the first day with our host family in our village and the second day in Ruseștii Noi as guests to my host family during pre-service training. Of course you can expect a big masă and lots of wine to usher in the holiday cheer.
