    It doesnt matter the country, but religion. Orhodox christmas is today, and catholic one is on 25th.

    The greeks "celebrate" christmas on 25th since they have many western european and stuff, plus companies fro there, so step by step, they starter celebrating it then. But the true orthodox (and greeks ARE orhodox) is today. As the true new years of orthodox is on 13th of January.

    I dont really care for religion, but my family is Orthodox and they celebrate Easter one week after the Catholic, but Christmas on the 25th. I know some Romanian and Bulgarian Orthodox who celebrate it on the 25th as well. It has nothing to do with Orthodoxy as there is Eastern Catholic churches that celebrate it on the 7th as well.
    Its just a lot of Eastern European and former Soviet States used the Gregorian calendar, which made december 25th coincide with january 7th.

    They were using the Julian calendar, tbh. All other world is using the Gregorian.
