It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas all across the globe. But for Russian ladies the Christmas season is bit different.  Why are Russian holidays different? It all goes back to the Great Schism. In 1054, the Western Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church had some disagreements and split from each other. One of the outcomes was when the Western Church switched to the Gregorian calendar for a more accurate date for celebration of Easter; the Orthodox Churches kept the traditional Julian calendar. Today, every country accepts the Gregorian calendar. However, the Orthodox Churches still use the Julian calendar for religious celebrations such as Christmas and Easter.  That means the Russian Orthodox Church feast day of Christmas is January 7, not December 25. So December 25 is a regular work day for the vast majority of Russians. However, in Russia winter vacation begins on December 31 and ends on January 10. Old Year is another winter holiday in Russia. It marks the old traditional Russian New Year under the old Imperial Julian calendar. In January, 1918 it was tossed aside and the modern Gregorian calendar was adopted.   It is an unofficial holiday but many businesses close early and host parties. Some Russian women might be away on holiday during this time. It is a good idea to make sure that you and your lady know when each of you will be celebrating the Christmas holidays, so neither one of you misses a communication.  Father Frost and Snow Maiden St. Nicholas does visit Russia. He just goes by a different name, Father Frost or "Ded Moroz". Dressed in a long, red lap fur coat he is assisted by the beautiful Snow Maiden or “Snegoyrachka", who is dressed in a long-lap fur coat and boots. Under the communists all religious celebrations were banned. So New Year’s Day became the big holiday.  It was also the day when Father Frost and Snow Maiden came to visit. Now they appear at both the New Year and at Christmas and good Russian children get double dose of presents. Swiatki (Christmastide) Swiatki or Christmastide is a two-week feast between Orthodox Christmas (January 7) and Epiphany (January 19) that is celebrated in some parts of Russia. The festival, though not approved by the Church, is very popular. Fortune-telling, ethnic songs and dancing, carnivals and games occur during this time. Dating someone from a different culture can be challenging. Sending her Christmas greetings or a present during Russian Christmas will mean so much to her. It will show her that you took time to learn about her culture and that you appreciate her customs. In addition, learning her traditions proves to her that you are attentive to her needs. That goes a long way in wooing her. Who knows she might turn out to be your snow maiden and keep you warm during those cold winter nights?

When courting a Russian woman, it’s helpful to know what things she’s looking for and what things she’s not. A recent survey of 580 Russian women revealed 22 common behaviors that turn Russian women off. For your convenience, we’ve listed the top ten biggest turnoffs below and some tips to help you avoid these off-putting traits. Keep this advice in mind while uploading photos, filling out profiles, or chatting with ladies and you’re sure to get better results on RussianLoveMatch.com.   10. Cheats   If you’re lucky enough to win a sexy Russian lady’s heart, the last thing you want to do is cheat on her.  Not only will you lose her trust, but she may just kick you the curb forever. Cheating, by definition, is the act of being sexually or emotionally unfaithful. While there may be a few gray areas as to what constitutes cheating, it’s best to abstain from any borderline behavior. Trust your gut when it comes to determining what’s appropriate and what’s not.   9. Men with Sex on the Brain   Almost anyone will agree that men think about sex more frequently than women. But while this may be true, most women don’t want a man who constantly expresses his sexual desires. This is particularly true in new relationships. When corresponding with a Russian lady, don’t even think about mentioning sex in the first few emails! Don’t send her nude photos or ask her to do the same. If you do, she might think you’re a creepy pervert.        8. Disrespectful Behavior   There are many forms of disrespect, but one easy way to avoid this offense is to treat others how you would like to be treated. Some common disrespectful behavior includes lying, cheating, name calling, talking about a woman behind her back, sending crude or suggestive messages, and treating women like sexual objects.   7. Arrogance   Even if you are the richest, most handsome man in the world, bragging about it will only make you sound like an obnoxious jerk. While everyone tends to broadcast their best qualities, keep the boasting to a minimum if you want to score a hot Russian woman.   6. Laziness   Women like enthusiastic, ambitious men.  They don’t like men who are content to sit on the couch all day, watching reruns and eating pork rinds. Exercise, visit friends, throw yourself into a hobby, or work on bettering your career. Any passion is better than none.     5. A Dirty Appearance   No woman likes a dirty, unkempt man. Take a little initiative and put your best face forward. Take a shower; shave; put on a clean, nicely pressed outfit. Posting a photo of you in your rumpled pajamas or showing up for a date in torn clothing isn’t going to impress any woman.   4. Rudeness Disrespect and rudeness go hand in hand, so the old saying “treat others as you’d like to be treated” applies here as well. You can never go wrong by taking other people’s feelings into consideration.   3. Self-Centered Behavior   Believe it or not, the whole world shouldn’t cater to your wants and needs. There’s little that annoys a woman more than a man who behaves as if he is the center of the universe. Make an effort to consider a lady’s preferences as well your own and you’ll sure to do much better with the fairer sex.   2. Liars   This big turn off is easy to avoid. Don’t lie! While it’s tempting to exaggerate certain aspects of your life, try to resist the urge to tell your beautiful Russian women you’re a brain surgeon when you’re actually a hospital janitor. If you’re open and sincere she’s much more likely to respond well to your advances.    And the #1 turn off for Russian women is……   1. Bad Manners   Saying please, thank you, and you’re welcome are common courtesies that too many people have neglected. Many Russian women view chivalrous behavior as indications of good manners, so be sure to open doors, carry her bags, pull out her chair, and generally treat her like a lady. Act like a gentleman and a lady is sure to look upon you favorably.   Avoid exhibiting these traits when corresponding with the hot Russian ladies on RussianLoveMatch and the chances of finding your perfect match will only improve.
