The Night None Like Others

Tonight at midnight the Son of God, the Saviour of the World, was born in the piercing cold in Bethlehem, the city of his ancestor, David.

Let us then bow down to worship and glorify the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in the innocence of the Holy Infant, Jesus.
He is the only begotton Son of the Living God.

The time of preparation is almost over. It is still Advent.
When Midnight comes, I wish you and your family a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.

Traditionally, from the very beginning, Christmas lasts 8 days from December 25th until January 2nd, the Feast of the Circumcision!

(Modern Calendar is by Saint Gregory. The change was made because the more ancient Calendar of Julian was less accurate. On the Julian Calendar, Christmas is January 7th for this year. The Orthodox adhere to the Julian Calendar)

The actual birth year of Our Lord is 4 to 6 years earlier. The error in calculation was made by Dionysius Exiguus (A.D. 470 – 544), a Monk in the 6th Century, who will always be known until eternity for his math error! (Born in Scythia Minor, modern Dobruja shared by Romania and Bulgaria, and a member of the Scythian monks community concentrated in Tomis, the major city of Scythia Minor.)

"...Dionysius is best known as the "inventor" of the Anno Domini (AD, the Year of Our Lord) era, which is used to number the years of both the Gregorian calendar and the (Christianized) Julian calendar..."
