Merry Orothodox Christmas

Merry Orthodox Christmas
January 6 is the day that was celebrated in the Christian Church in the Roman Empire and the Eastern Orthodox churches still do. 

After the Christian Religion became legal in Rome the Roman church changed it to December 25th to ease the pagan solstist celebration into celebrating the birth of the son of God as apposed to the celebration of  the rebrith of the sun as days get longer.

So Merry Christmas everyone.


  1. in parts of Germany, the predominantly Catholic areas, this date is still a big celebration. In Bavaria it's even a legal holiday.

  2. Merry Christmas to you too. We celebrated this at church on Sunday. Our pastor held communion. It was a beautiful service from start to finish
