I learned something with your post. I did not know that Jan. 6th was also celebrated as Christ's birthday. Always good to broaden ones education.

Acctualy it is celebrated on January 7th. It is based on Julian calendar which is two weeks behind the Gregorian calendar which is used in Catholic Church.

Cheers buddy! I wouldn't have known that - I have a friend who is Orthodox who I can now confidently wish 'Merry Christmas' today!

There's nothing orthodox about Christmas!!!
Every year I don't know till Christmas Eve if my step-children (all 21+ years thankfully)will grace our house or their father's with their presence for Christmas lunch or dinner.
Add my sister's family who live 10 minutes away (she's a nutter) and a radical 85 year old mother-in-law who lurvs Moet and it's no wonder I take to the turps with enthusiasm.

Merry Orthodox Christmas.

I do not know what 'turps' are, but am guessing something alcohlic. All the Aussies I met in Thailand and Cambodia never needed an excuse to drink. Any day was a good day for them to get blasted.

Yup,
Turps is an ockerism for booze (neck oil, etc)
