Hundreds of Orthodox Christians are gathering at Manger Square in Bethlehem on Sunday, January 6, to take part in the Christmas Midnight Mass.

Christmas celebrations on January 7 are known as ‘Old Christmas Day’ and are based on the Julian calendar for religious celebrations, while much of Europe changed to the Gregorian calendar in 1752.
