St Nicholas

Many Orthodox Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ annually on or about January 7th (the Orthodox in Armenia celebrate on January 6th). The switching of different countries from the Julian to Gregorian calendar meant that days were dropped. Most Orthodox churches decided to keep the original Julian calendar date for their religious celebrations.
