Happy other Christmas

xmasToday is Russian and Ukrainian Christmas. January 7th is Christmas for some Orthodox Churches. That’s because the Churches are still using the old Julian calendar and most everyone else uses the Gregorian calendar. The Julian calendar is 13 days behind. The reason that I know about today being Christmas is that about a third of my High School was Ukrainian and many of the students took the day off on Jan. 7th. Merry Christmas!
