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!
