May Christ our God bless all who celebrate the feast of His Birth in the flesh.

Thanks Shenouti! You beat me to it! I hope the Nativity of Our Lord last night (or today, since technically "today" started at sundown yesterday...oh nevermind! You know what I mean!) was a blessing to everyone! Merry Christmas! Christ is born!

I hope this feast is a blessing to you all!

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Merry Christmas. Do all OO celebrate Christmas on the 7th of January ?
In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)

Nah.  Syrians and Indians celebrate on 25 December, and the Armenians keep the ancient tradition of observing Christmas and Epiphany on the same day (6 January).  This year, I celebrated Christmas three times!  :)
