I will always say, "Merry Christmas". I will not let the world change my speech. The same with BC & AD. I was teaching history & a fellow teacher said, "You need to say BCE." My point with him was, "It may not be exact, but even when you say "BCE"(before the common era), the era is the time before Christ's birth. I will honour my Lord every way I can. I will not erase Christ from my speech.
Thank you so much for you're efforts educating us our faith and religion we need more especially like us whom our children born and raised in western its easier to let them listened your prich instead of us struggle to expanded thank you thank you egzabeher yebarekeh🤝
God has answered our Prayers.
Thanks Lord Yesus Christ to the Glory of the Father.
So many Western born were taught and sealed by this great Church. Especially, by HIS Eminence Archbishop Yesehaq.
No English in the Churches. Yes I.
All the Coptic Churches use English. We are in English lands.
I am bless to see this development.
Thanks Deacon. You were great.

The "proper date" of Christmas is DECEMBER 25TH which is the date on the JULIAN CALENDAR when the Nativity is celebrated in the Russian Orthodox Church. DECEMBER 25TH on the Julian Calendar is JANUARY 7TH on the GREGORIAN CALENDAR which the Western Christian Churches uses as does secular society. The explanation in this video seems to confuse things somewhat by saying the "proper date of Christmas is January 7th." It has always been DECEMBER 25th. It's just that the Julian Calendar is behind the Gregorian Calendar.
Brother, Bless. There are a few errors in this.
(1) By the Julian Calendar we do not celebrate on 7th January at all, but on 25th December. January 7th is only the date at the moment (when converted to the Gregorian) due to the inaccuracy of that Calendar and the fact that over hundreds of years it has shifted 13 days, in 2100 it will be moving again to January 8th. If you read the Early Fathers they speak of it being on December 25, as that is the date of Christmas as per the Julian, and remains so. If you look at a Gregorian Calendar to Julian Calendar converter site you can even see that Jan 7th on the Gregorian is 25th December on the Julian, as 25th is the formal feast date.
(2) You stated that Armenians celebrate Christmas on the 7th January, but the Armenian Church does not celebrate the Nativity at all. In fact they celebrate the Theophany and Nativity as a joint feast on 6th January (19th in Julian Calendar Jerusalem), as it is the 12th day after the 25th December, the Patristicly taught day of the Birth of Christ.

Where do you got this idea from? It is utterly wrong. Christmas has always been on the 25th of December, still is and always will be. It has never been on the 7th of January and never will be. Even your own church doesn't celebrate Christmas on the 7th of January but on the 25th of December AFTER THE JULIAN CALENDER which is coincidently the 7th of January after the Gregorian calender until 2100.
You have no idea how much you’re helping my son to understand his religion I was about to put him in church school so he can learn our language as well as our religion and the pandemic hits churches are closed I was very sad how I can teach him the proper way and I came across your channel, he actually very interesting to listen to you and he is more understanding and all his questions are answered. You’re truly gifted and blessed. የጌታ እናት ከስሯ አትለይህ እቅፍ ድግፍ አርጋ ፀጋውን ታብዛልህ!! You’re doing great great job and it’s very important for the young generation we have to thank you a lot!
I am a Catholic Christian who would like to re-wind back to the year 1053 when we were all singing off the same song sheet. Thank you Deacon for a wonderful explanation of, not only Orthodox Christmas, but Christmas as all Christians should know it.
Nowadays at the end of the December 25th celebration day, our secular and materialistic society in the West, drops Christmas like a hot potato. But by referring to the cheerful classic song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” I like to remind them that the important event of the Epiphany is still 12 days away. The story of Christmas is not complete without the part about the arrival of the three wise men, to pay homage to the new born Savior of the world.
