13 days have passed since Christmas was celebrated on December 25th, and now it’s Christmas all over again! The date of January 7th is when Christmas takes place on the Eastern Orthodox calendar, and when Russian, and Ukrainian Orthodox Christians get to celebrate the holiday. In Russia December 25th is not a holiday and individuals still have to work.
