Re: A happy Orthodox Christmas to you all!

How its celebrated in Istanbul .... Jaycey you and your family enjoy.....



Orthodox Christians around the world, including those residing in Turkey, celebrated on Friday the feast of Epiphany to commemorate the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan.

A traditional ceremony was held on the banks of Istanbul’s Golden Horn, in which a group of swimmers retrieved a cross thrown by the patriarch into the sea.

The Orthodox faith uses the old Julian calendar which marks Christmas on January 7 rather than on December 25.
