LOL. The Coptic and the Ethiopian, of course!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yes. But the major feasts (Christmas, Theophany, Pascha, etc.) correspond to the Julian calendar, if that was what you were asking in your original post.

Indeed we are Old Calendar, and personally I like it, not for religious reasons, but because it grew up on me.  Smiley  And it's pretty cool, because then, I can go attend Christmas liturgy at either Syrian or Indian churches (I'm not sure if Armenians celebrate on the 25th or they do Jan. 6th).

Armenians don't celebrate Christmas. They celebrate the Birth and Baptism of Christ on the same day of Theophany. 6th on the New Calendar, 19th on the Julian (for Armenians in Jerusalem).

Ooooh...okay...ya, I knew they celebrated it together, I was just not sure whether July 6th was Julian or Gregorian.

Isn't this also the most ancient practice?
