Orthodox New Year History
Orthodox New Year is celebrated as the first day of the new year as per the Julian calendar. Orthodox New Year is a celebration of the year to come. It is often referred to as Old New Year, and is celebrated by Orthodox churches in Russia, Serbia, and other Eastern European countries on January 14. Although most countries have adopted the Gregorian calendar, where New Year's Day is January 1, the Orthodox Church still follows the Julian calendar, which places Christmas on January 7 and New Year's a week later.
