    In this edition we remember Alexander Pushkin and his uncle, visit St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Moscow, remember the most popular New Year’s and Christmas dishes in Russia, quote our teachers and discuss listeners’ letters.

    LONG SUMMARY — This week, Natasha discovers a unique house in Moscow, where Alexander Pushkin and his uncle Vasily, used to spend time together. How was it then and what’s it like now?

    We also visit St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Moscow and meet its new Chaplain.

    Find out how Moscow saved Christmas in Paris, France by presenting a fir tree to the world famous Notre Dame Cathedral.

    What are the most popular New Year’s and Christmas dishes on the Moscow menu? What are the favorite beverages and how to cure the killer hangover – Russian style?

    In our “Quotes from our Russian teachers” segment, we recall some of the unique things our Moscow schoolteachers used to say to us in class.

    Plus listener’s letters and times and frequencies for the shortwave broadcast of From Moscow with Love.
