01 Dec 2002 :: Today it's been the National day of Romania here. Some local dudes asked me if I felt myself Romanian. Well..

[ 27th Dec 2001 ] neverending holidays | leave a comment

New Year and Christmas holidays can last more if places for their celebration are chosen correctly. Nope, I don't propose to follow the Sun and move through all the time zones starting from the New Zealand. It can be done even easier. Look, it's possible to celebrate Christmas in a country where they use the new calendar, and then move to the former USSR where the old calendar has other day for Christmas and the New Year, the 7th and the 13th January accordingly. And exactly this way I'm gonna make it this winter.

Romanians, despite of being orthodoxes, celebrate the birth of their saviour by the catholic calender. Well, it affects only those who believe, thus fortunatelly desn't affect me at all. Local people call Christmas Craciun, and Santa Claus is Mos Cracuin in Romanian. In direct translation it means "Old man Christmas". So, to not to lose the opportunity, my friends and I were celebrating it eating, drinking and watching the "Dracula" movie which I liked a lot.

But now, my dear friends, on the 28th December I leave for my home city of Kharkov to continue celebrating the winter holidays. The travel is gonna be long (exactly 24 hours to Kiev, and then at least 7 hours to Kharkov), and problematic. My friends from Kiev couldn't buy me a ticket in advance, so I'll need to find myself a bus as soon as I arrive.

Well, there is nothing wrong. I've managed to survive in much more difficult situations, so this one is gonna be ok. The report about my trip, I think will be ready as soon as I return to Romania.

Now it's time for a small announce. The day after tomorrow, on the 29th according to what the freshmeat guys said they're gonna publish my new article about icq client programs development. If you'll have any questions or ideas about what's written there fell free to write me. I promise to answer all the e-mails as soon as I return and get my hands on the inbox.
