Bulgarian Orthodox Church Dispels News of Moving Christmas

Date: 08.12.2009

Bulgaria is going to continue to celebrate Christmas on December 25, 2009, according to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The Spokesperson of the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church has disproved recent statements by bishops that the Julian Calendar might be restored in Bulgaria.

The Spokesperson Bishop Neofit has told Darik Radio that the Orthodox Church was not intending to move Christmas from December 25 to January 7 by rescinding the use of the Gregorian Calendar.

Bishop Neofit made this statement after Tuesday’s meeting of the Holy Synod thus disproving earlier statements by some of the Bulgarian bishops.

“This issue is not on the agenda at all, and there is no way that any requests by some of the parishes would influence the Holy Synod into restoring the Julian Calendar,” he declared.
