Today is Orthodox Christmas

Today is Orthodox Christmas
We hope you haven’t already taken down your tree!

When the date of 25 December was set by Sextus Julius Africanus in 221 AD to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Julian calendar was in common usage. With the shift to the Gregorian calendar,  what had been December 25 became January 7. However, the Orthodox church opted not to make this change, so let’s all take one last chance to say Merry Christmas! And to celebrate some more, we’ve chosen three books that are set in Greece in honor of Miranda’s Greek Orthodox grandfather.


Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?
