for the first time, Christmas is celebrated on December 25

In 2023, this will be the second Christmas at war for Ukrainians. But the first celebrates December 25, according to the Gregorian calendar. In July, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a law changing the dates of several national celebrations, including Christmas. Ukraine, where most of the population is Orthodox Christian, had the Julian calendar as a reference. This specificity is explained by the supervision exercised by Russia over the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, now independent of Moscow.
