Yolka 2019

The Yolka celebration is a Russian custom associated with Christmas. The word "Yolka" means fir or spruce tree.

In my experience a Yolka is a celebration with some type of performance.  At Holy Trinity it is usually the children doing a performance.  It is based on Christmas. I remember a Yolka in Washington DC in which adults did the performance.
