Orthodox Christmas Day for the year 2021 is celebrated/ observed on Thursday, January 7th.


According to the Julian calendar (used prior to Gregorian calendar) the day falls on December 25th each year. The day celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of God.

Around the World

Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Ukraine, Georgia, Jerusalem and Russia all use the older Julian calendar to determine when to celebrate the day, which is on January 7th currently 13 days after the Gregorian calendar.


Orthodox Church in America, Albania, Antioch, Cyprus, Constantinople, Finland, Romania, Greece and Bulgaria all switched over to the “Revised Julian Calendar” in the early 20th century which is the same as the Gregorian calendar. So they celebrate Orthodox Christmas day on December 25th.
