Russian Christmas Cards

A couple of weeks ago, I happened upon several Christmas cards at a local bookstore which I regularly visit, which were published and made here in the United States, mostly by the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, New York. As you will see, the cards range from images of winter scenes to various symbols relating to the Russian celebration of Christmas, I’m particularly fond of the illustration of the Three Wise Men drawn with Slavic themes.

Knowing the rarity of finding such items on the internet, I bought several and would like to present these as a sort of gift to the readers in light of the Christmas season and especially to my Eastern Orthodox readers, who are today celebrating Christmas, myself included.
