Christmas On Julian Calendar Observed

BLAKELY -- Those who follow the Julian calendar celebrated Christmas Monday.

Newswatch 16 stopped by St. Andrew's Orthodox Greek Catholic Church along Main Street in Blakely where they were celebrating Christmas.

Christians who follow the Julian calendar usually mark the holiday on January 7.

The festivities usually include a meal of 12 dishes representing each of the apostles.

We would like to wish all of those celebrating a very Merry Christmas.
