What kind of religious calendar do Christians observe?

  • Until the Gregorian reform, Christians considered March 25 the beginning of the year.
  • Christians mark time on the solar Gregorian calendar.
  • Using the Jewish seven-day week, Christians gradually added fixed feasts.
  • Some Eastern Christian churches still use the Julian calendar, so that their major feasts fall just less than two weeks later than those of the Western churches.
