In 1923 the Eastern Rite Churches adopted a modified form of the Gregorian Calendar. October 1, 1923, in the Julian Calendar became October 14, 1923, in the Eastern calendar. From this we see the celebration of Christmas on January 7th and New Year’s on January 14th.

The date of Easter is determined by reference to modern lunar astronomy (in contrast to the more approximate lunar model of the Gregorian system). if you wish to see how these dates are calculated, the Astronomical Society of South Australia https://www.assa.org.au/edm has an excellent page showing how it’s done.
