Forum members can blame me for that. I am having a heavy and insidious influence on our Gregorian Calendar following Indian friend. muHAHAHAHWHWHHAHAHAHWHHWAHAH

Mor,

Actually I find "doin it twice" to be quite awkward. For example, I attended a new calendarist church this morning, so what was I suppose to say and do? Should I go about ecclesiastical life as though nativity is already passed, or not yet come? Is it right to respond "Glorify Him!" when he hasn't been born yet (so to speak) according to my Church? Man, how confusing.

I don't have these problems, I do everything earlier than the old calendar.  Smiley

Really, I'm going for three reasons: 1) I missed Christmas last year due to illness, so I'm making up for lost time ( Smiley ), 2) I want to experience Christmas on the old calendar among traditionalists and see what that's like, even though I have the "handicap" of having celebrated it two weeks prior, and 3) I want to have a smashing good (and holy) time with friends old and new, no pun intended.  I am in agreement with you, however, on how awkward it is to "do it twice" if your church follows one or the other.  For my purposes, I follow my Church's fasts, which in turn determines which feast day "counts" for me (in this case, new calendar); if I celebrate two weeks later, that is just because I want to.       

And just what were you doing at a new calendar church today?  Tongue

Well, I guess I can understand that. Smiley And we were there because we were under the impression that it was an old calendarist carpatho-russian church, lol.

LOL, Paradosis!
You are in good company. I understand that ACROD's Metropolitan Nicholas himself has recently made this same mistake - forgetting when celebrating Divine Liturgy at the Church of SS Cyril & Methodios at Camp Nazareth that the parsih was New Calendar, not Julian as his own cathedral is!
