    Hi all,

    I heard that next year the Old Style calendar will fall another day behind the New Style. Does this change the date of the celebration of the Nativity of Christ? Will it remain January 7th?

    I remember reading somewhere that the Nativity of Christ will be on January 7th until 2100 (December 25, 2100 = January 8, 2101)

    Old Calendar Christmas will always be on December 25th. It will not lose a day in 2007. It loses a day w/r/t the Gregorian every 100 years or so (it's slightly more complicated than that, there's probably a wikipedia article detailing how the Gregorian calendar is different from the Julian (well, okay, the Gregorian calendar doesn't have a leap year on years divisible by 100 unless it's divisible by 400 as well, whereas the Julian has leap years every 4 years, so it didn't lose a day in 2000 but did in 1900 and will in 2100)).
