Today marks a US federal holiday since New Year's Day fell on a Sunday; having had the whole week off last week, January 3 marks the first day back at work. So the holidays are over. But wait! Let's look at what's still to come in the Middle East:
January 6: Eastern Christmas Eve (December 24 under the Julian Calendar, 13 days later than the Gregorian)
January 7: Eastern Christmas
January 14: Amazigh New Year 2962 (Julian New Year under the traditional North African Agricultural calendar.)
January 19: Feast of the Theophany (January 6 in Julian; equivalent to the Western Epiphany or Twelfth Night); in some Eastern churches considered a greater feast than the Nativity.
So who said the holidays were over?
