1. This may be a really naive question...

...but I remember when most if not all Eastern Orthodox celebrated Christmas on January 7th, keeping to the "old calendar." Have the Orthodox now shifted it to December 25th, at least in the U.S.?

2. There are still some Old Calendarists (churches) that adhere to the Julian Calendar

for liturgical holydays except for Easter [Pascha] which follows the calculation that it does. After the full moon, after Passover. Some years it conjoins with the Western date which is pleasing.

The Greek Orthodox Church in America and the Orthodox Church in America [OCA] celebrate the Nativity on December 25. I do believe the Antiochians also keep the 25th. Some Carpatho-Rus Churches voted to keep the 7th or change to the 25th. Newly established communities celebrate the 25th of December.

It's not a naive question.

I was immersed in Orthodoxy 40 days 'new'. 😁 And still continue to receive enlightenment!

Merry Christmas! 🕊
