Something New or Something Old?
« on: April 08, 2006, 05:22:34 AM »
Do most posters follow the new or old Calendar?
If the old, why?
If the New do you celebrate Easter with the old calenderist or with everyone else?
Thanks

We have one celebration of Pascha and the Paschal cycle (the 70 days before and 58 days after) in 99% of the Orthodox world - Old Calendar.  The 1% is Finland, who celebrates with the West due to some legal restrictions.

As far as who is on what calendar for everything but the Paschal cycle, I would suppose that since the majority (whether slim or great, it matters not) are OCA/AOA/GOA, it is probably the New Calendar; those in the SOC, GOC, etc. are on the old.
