No. They (at least in modern times) use the Gregorian
calendar. They just use an older date for Christmas.
Before Christmas was set on Dec. 25 by the Western
Church, it was celebrated on Jan. 6 by the Eastern
Church. (We're talking back in the 300's here.) When
the Dec. 25 date became official in the West, Jan. 6
became Epiphany. The Donatists in C-an lands still
use the older date of Jan 6 (on whatever calendar).
Here's the schedule for this year:
Dec. 09 -- First Sunday of Advent
Dec. 16 -- Second Sunday of Advent
Dec. 19 -- Feast of the Geneology of Christ
Dec. 23 -- Third Sunday of Advent
Dec. 30 -- Fourth Sunday of Advent
Jan. 06 -- Christmas Day
Jan. 14 -- Feast of the Circumcision
Jan. 19 -- Visit of the Magi
Jan. 20 -- Flight into Egypt
Jan. 22 -- Holy Innocents
Feb. 09 -- Feast of SS Simeon and Anna
Two full months this year!
