    A lot of you might not be aware of this, but for millions of people around the world, it's Christmas day!!! Yes, January 7, is Christmas for millions of Eastern Orthodox Christians whose churches use the Julian calendar, including the Orthodox churches of Jerusalem, Russia, Serbia and Georgia.

    Merry Christmas to them all!

    Merry Christmas!

    We all assume the world follows the same calendar as we do. I've just dug this out and updated it from my newsletter for January a couple of years ago:

    "Happy new year 2005, except of course if you're Moslem in which case it's 1425, a Buddhist for whom it's 2549, Jewish when it's been 5765 since last September or Chinese when you'll be celebrating the year of the rooster at the beginning of 4702 at the end of January."
