Orthodox Christmas celebrated around the world

Orthodox Christians from all over the world have been celebrating Christmas along with Russia.

In Belgrade, hundreds of worshippers turned out to burn dried oak branches symbolizing Christ's entry into the world.

Serbian president Boris Tadich turned up in Kosovo to celebrate Christmas despite separatist protests.

And in Georgia, Holy Mass was held in all churches across the country, which adopted Christianity in the 4th century.
