Christmas

Today is Christmas for Eastern Orthodox churches; ie. Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox. They use the Julian calendar so dates are a little off from the Gregorian calendar that most of the rest of us use.

A neighborhood near my high school in Elmira Heights, NY was prominently Ukrainian and about 1/3 of the students and teachers would be absent on Jan. 7th every year.

So for the last time this season; Merry Christmas.
