Would the Ottomans allow people to celebrate Christmas?
Well, the ITTL Empire has enough variety of religions that if every religious holiday was made a bank holiday there wouldn't be any working days left. So I'd imagine something like "everyone gets an annual allowance of Religious holiday days off to spend" might be used, once labor rights progress to a suitable level.i'am not sure about OTL ottomans but TTL ottomans would totally allow celebration (altho I don't know if they are official allowing days off for Christmas)
Agreed with this. I don't suppose religious celebrations of other religions are something to be worth banning over from Ottoman's view, considering the rather larger Christian minorities in the empire, not to mention that there are many Christians who are involved in Ottoman politics of this TL. That, and I suppose the good graces of countries such as Greece, UK, and Bulgaria are something the Ottomans want to keep.Not worth spending the time or PR to really ban it, given the unrest that could ensue domestically or internationally.
Hell, how do you enforce it? Kick in doors at random for any Christmas trees? Arrest anyone with Pointsettas in the windows?Agreed with this.

Like most South East Asian Countries, the OE has a lot of holidays ittl.
Technically only the people of the religious denominations are allowed to have off-days during religious holidays, but the fairly large intermixed populace means that almost everyone gets a day off in almost every religious holiday as well.

the russian civil war will certainly be interesting in Finland that's for sure.1. Even though Finland will gain independence but their hatred against the Swedish and Swedish-speaking Finns is going to be hated since they always hated being under Sweden's control and with the Swedish and Swedish-speaking Finns returning to power... yeah.
its going to be more of an internal instability than civil war.2. I think Bavaria is gonna end up in a civil war between pro-Germany and pro-Independence.
Let me guess, one of those far-right Germans who hates Heinze's policy of rapprochement and probably thinks that having Alfred von Tirpitz as Chancellor would be a Really Good Idea assassinated Heinze?Everything was going right for the Germans. Well, at least until Heinze was assassinated on the 23rd of July, 1926.
Every neighbor are going to play a part in the Russian Civil War really.Not exactly a prediction, but:
1. Umm, I think you mistyped "Estonian Finns" instead of "Estonian Swedes".
2. For some reason I can see the Ottomans or the Romanians playing some role in the future Russian Civil War, backing the Moldavians and Azeris or maybe also Armenians, respectively.
3. Are the Tatars (either in Crimea or Volga) going to play some role in the future Russian Civil War?
