To this day, the Eastern Orthodox (and allied religions) still celebrate Christmas on January 7 in light of the effect of changing to the Gregorian calendar*.
I am curious to know if in the year of the change itself (e.g. 1582 for Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Poland), or more generally in the first few years after the change, there was any concern or reluctance in those states about the ‘new’ date of Jesus’ birthday. Even someone with minimal understanding of the calendar would realize that ‘December 25th’ was no longer December 25th.
Was this a problem? Just curious. Thanks!
