To the Editor:


Merry Orthodox Christmas, Jan. 7, 2022. This is celebrated largely in Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Greece and Serbia, by Coptic Christians in Egypt, and regions that have people from these countries

This is based on the Julian calendar. The Catholic Pope Gregory XIII organized a new calendar in 1582 and areas not affected in some cases adopted the date later. People will attend church services ( plus Divine Liturgy) and then feast on foods and some cheese dishes and other ways to celebrate. Enjoy!
