25 years ago today

While December 25th is best known for a few other things, there is an event which occurred on this date back in 1991 which is worth a mention.

Twenty five years ago today, Mikhail Gorbachev resigned as President of the USSR, and the country itself ceased to exist.

Not quite as world-changing as the birth of Jesus Christ, but not all that far behind either.
