Orthodox New Year History
Orthodox New Year is celebrated as the first day of the new year as per the Julian calendar. It is a celebration of the year to come and is often referred to as Old New Year. It 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. This mean it observes Christmas on January 7 and New Year's a week later.
