There are a lot of holidays coming up in January. After the Orthodox Christmas there will be another 2 big feasts: St. Basil Day and The Day of Baptism of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Orthodox 19th of January).
My little daughter is going to have a Birthday in between all the fun and then there is the day of the Old New Year celebration. Orthodox New Year is an informal traditional Slavic Orthodox holiday, celebrated as the start of the New Year by the Julian Calendar. In the 20th and 21st centuries, the Old New Year falls on January 13/14 (information from Wikipedia).
In the end of January we're going to have Australia Day! This day is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788, the hoisting of the British Flag there, and the proclamation of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of New Holland (information from Wikipedia).
Any way, all together January promises a fun start to the Year, we just have to get ready.
So Merry Christmas everybody and Happy New Year!!!
