The most amazing time during the Russian winter is the period between Christmas and the Epiphany, which is celebrated today. It is held (though the weather defies this tradition) that this is the time of the harshest cold spells. And as if the counter the cold, according to Russian tradition, it is also the height of winter revelries during the Christmas season.
