OLD CHRIST­MAS DAY

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

To­day, Jan. 6, is Christ­mas Day on the Ju­lian cal­en­dar and is still known as “Old Christ­mas”. Pope Gre­gory XIII changed Europe to the Gre­go­rian cal­en­dar in 1752, which made Christ­mas come 11 days ear­lier than it had un­der the Ju­lian cal­en­dar. To­day is also Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christ­mas, com­mem­o­rat­ing the visit of the wise men to Beth­le­hem af­ter Je­sus’ birth.
