“The mummers (some of the house serfs) dressed up as bears, Turks, innkeepers, and ladies - frightening and funny - bringing in with them the cold from outside and a feeling of gaiety, crowded, at first timidly, into the anteroom, then hiding behind one another they pushed into the ballroom where, shyly at first and then more and more merrily and heartily, they started singing, dancing, and playing Christmas games.” Leo Tolstoy. War and Peace.

Leo Tolstoy’s personal library contains rather many Christmas tales – stories about various miracles that happen during Christmastide. In Russian this period of time is called “svyatki”, which means “holy days” between Christmas and Epiphany. Those stories preach humaneness, love, kindness, and encourage the readers to try and change the world for the better through their own self-improvement.
