Happy "Old" New Year

Posted by Alexander Dymo on January 13, 2006

Yep, New Year has come to Ukraine for the second time! It was 1918 when Soviet Russia adopted Gregorian calendar. And the difference between Julian and Gregorian calendar was -13 days then. I don't know how that happened but people in ex-Russian Empire, ex-USSR countries still unofficially celebrate the New Year by Julian style calling January 14 the "Old New Year". So, happy "Old" New Year! :)
