Subject: RE: Christmas in Spain
While Christmas in Spain is indeed Dec. 25, it is not strictly true that it is the same all over the world. Certain churches, most notably the Orthodox Church in Russia and the Coptic Church in Egypt, observe their holidays on the Julian calendar. When the church calendar says it is Dec. 25, the outside world's calendar says Jan. 7; that's when these churches observe Christmas.
