It’s Orthodox Christmas In Moscow… The Photos Look Like The Inside Of A Snow Globe.
As North Americans have put away their Christmas decorations, started their New Year’s resolutions, and gone back to work and school, people in Russia are still celebrating. Following the Julian calendar, January 7th marked the Orthodox Christmas.
Photographer Kristina Makeeva took to the streets of Moscow to capture the magic that happens. Her images seem to come from a fairy-tale land where everything seems to sparkle and twinkle. The 27-year-old says, “this holiday is another reason to look back to my country’s history which is inextricably entwined with the Orthodox faith.” Their holiday season looks like nothing we have ever seen.
Saint Basil's Cathedral is seen overlooking all the celebrations and fireworks.
Makeeva does not understand why people wish to travel to warmer climate countries.
Images of Red Square like never before.
Moscow's street decorations are a spectacular light show.
Makeeva says this photo is a postcard view. We could not agree more.
