And not only, there are some other countries whose churches respect so called Julian calendar which differs from the official Gregorian calendar in 13 days. That's why we celebrate Christmas 13 days later and there is also a custom to celebrate Orthodox New year on the January 13th - 14th. So we have two New Years both very celebrated and popular and since the country is surrounded by cathoclic countries with a lot of catholics who live in Serbia (Hungarians, Croatians, Slovenians)we could say that we celebrate two Christmases as well. This is very nice and I wanted to share it with all of you on Italki.
