Счастливого Рождества из России (Happy Christmas from Russia)

Back in 2010 when I was living in Jerusalem, these posters got my attention which I saw in a few different places in Jerusalem, this is highly unusual, as I normally see only an occasional glimpse of Christmas paraphernalia in ordinary churches for visiting foreign Christians, or the Arab Christian community.

But these are advertising Christmas events to Russian speaking Jews that unlike conventional Jewish culture seem to celebrate Christmas.

The web link www.dagmara.co.il goes to a which appears to be a concert ticket site in Russian language.
