Actually the original text is still there, in the code. It's not
displayed correctly if you don't have the Cyrillic fonts installed, or
they're not installed to be available to all users and applications. I
don't know why anyone's personal computer would be set up that way, it
takes extra effort, but, I've been known to put in extra effort just
annoy someone so...
I have them installed to be used with all my applications. So I see
them, but I've never been able to read anything actually written with
them. I have a hard enough time with French Spanish and German, and
they're generally written in Latin scripts, and I supposedly took some
courses in them, but I couldn't prove it in actual practice.

The interesting fact is that the Old New Year is celebrated beyond the
Eastern European countries, e.g. in Wales, Switzerland, Scotland, and
even in North Africa (albeit on January 12 in the latter two regions).

In Russia (and several other former Soviet Union republics), the
school break typically runs from December 31th or 30th, till January
10 or so, depending on the weekend day at the end of it. Many
companies also have extended holidays for a comparable period.

My father's family was Eastern Orthodox. We celebrated Christmas in
December with my Mother's family and Christmas in January with my
father's family. plus we had my mother's birthday, my father's
birthday, and my birthday, all between Dec 10 and Dec 23. My sister,
born on the fourth of July, always felt cheated during the winter
