Why is Orthodox Christmas on January 7 and not on December 25? It’s because the Russian Orthodox Church still lives according to the Julian Calendar as the Russian Empire did before the 1917 revolution. One of the first decrees of the new Soviet Government was to change the calendar to the Gregorian one, like in Europe and most of the countries of the world. The Russian Orthodox Church did not conform and kept all important church dates and celebrations in accordance with the old calendar. As of 2015, there are 10 Russian Orthodox deaneries in Alaska (each deanery is headed by a parish priest, known as a dean).Source KKBI 890 Radio Homer Alaska NPR
