Those that observe the Orthodox Christmas tradition are doing so at this time because they are following the Julian calendar.

Let us provide a link to the BBC site where they focus on pictures for people to get a feel for the various ways the Orthodox Christmas is observed.

And for those that might want to study the subject a little deeper than that which can be learned from the BBC staff, let me provide another link:

One more thing, if you wish to learn a little more about what is going on with this Julian calendar business, here is a good start:
