Iron Locust Posted January 5, 2007 Share Posted January 5, 2007 (edited) Merry Christmas!!! Some Eastern Orthodox Churches (Russian, Greek, Serbian etc.) celebrate Christmas on January 7, which corresponds to December 25 on the Julian calendar. The Russian Orthodox Church (Russian: Русская Православная церковь), also known as the Orthodox Christian Church of Russia, is that body of Christians who are united under the Patriarch of Moscow, who in turn is in communion with the other patriarchs and primates of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In this way Russian Orthodox believers are in communion with all other Eastern Orthodox believers.
