Nativity of Christ
Start Date: 1/7/2017 All Day
End Date: 1/7/2017

Event Description:
Orthodox Christian churches that follow the Julian calendar (the calendar created under the reign of Julius Caesar in 45 BCE) celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on what most of the world views as January 7. Recent studies in Russia have shown that 72 percent of the general population mark Christmas on January 7 as opposed to December 25.  As with Pascha, or Easter, the Feast of the Nativity is preceded by 40 days of fasting and austerity, similar to Lent.
