    To all the Orthodox Christians celebrating today.
    Have a good, safe, Easter and whatever else that goes with it. Usually food related. :)

    Thanks, Trusteft! Happy Easter to you too and to everyone else celebrating!

    We're not overdoing it with the food, but there's a little bit of everything and, of course, the eggs are getting crushed. :)

    Yeah, we don't have eggs this year because of the recent death of my aunt, but keeping with the rest, as possible. I am going to have lamb and potatoes , salads, etc.

    You guys need to get a modern Calender and celebrate it the same time as the rest of us :)

    This has nothing to do with the calendar. There are two "factions" within Orthodoxy. One that does indeed uses the old calendar and the other it uses the new. In the addition to that Easter isn't celebrated on a specific date so that confuses things even more.

    I always thought the difference was to do with Catholics using the Gregorian calendar but orthodox still using the older Julian, giving us different dates (about 2 weeks later)

    Well, live and learn. :)
    There are orthodox who follow the Gregorian, like Greek Orthodox, but there are also orthodox who follow the Julian, like I believe Russians (could be wrong) and a sect here in Greece too.

    When the shift to the Gregorian calendar took place, the Catholics moved to it. The Orthodox did too, but not all of them. Some remained with the old. So some Orthodox Churches ( for example the Greek Orthodox Church) eventually followed the move to the new calendar. Others, I believe those more closely depended on the Russian Church, remained with the old to this day.
    There are exceptions even within them, so for example there are Greek Orthodox "sects" which follow the old calendar. But the official does not. This does not change the fact that some holy days are celebrated different dates from Catholics (and other denominations who follow those dates), regardless of which calendar is followed.

    OR, better yet read this, it's only some lines long and very informative.

    Yeah I pretty much kind of knew most of it, the remark I made was just humorously ( I thought) aimed ta the ones that currently are not on the calender that the rest of creation uses. I take it back. :)

    So long as The Resurrection is part of it, I think the date is moot. :)
