NOTE: the Julian Calendar was declared effective by Julius Caesar in 45 B.C. The Gregorian Calendar, frequently referred to as New Style (N.S.), was established by Pope Gregory XIII on 24 February 1582, and went into effect on 15 October 1582 (5 October, Old Style – O.S.). Russia used the Julian Calendar until 1918, and was
10 days behind the Gregorian Calendar from 15 October 1582 - 18 February 1700
11 days behind the Gregorian Calendar from 19 February 1700 to 17 February 1800
12 days behind the Gregorian Calendar from 18 February 1800 to 16 February 1900
13 days behind the Gregorian Calendar from 17 February 1900 to 31 March 1918
The change to the Gregorian Calendar in Russia took place on 1 February 1918 – which was changed to be 14 February.

Many Orthodox traditions did not accept the Revised Julian calendar, and continue to celebrate Christmas on 25 December in the Julian calendar, which is 7 January in the Gregorian calendar [until the year 2100].
