Let’s have a look at the Christmas traditions in one of the ancient countries of the world- Armenia.

Armenian Apostolic Church celebrates the Christ’s Nativity and Baptism on January 6th with solemn ceremonies. 
But in the whole world Christmas is celebrated on various days because of differences in Julian and Gregorian calendars.
 All Christian churches celebrated Christ’s birth on January 6th until the 4th century when the date was changed to December 25 by the Roman Empire. 
Catholic Church celebrates Christmas on December 25 according to the Julian calendar and the Orthodox Church celebrates it on January 7 according to the Gregorian calendar. Being the first country to accept Christianity, Armenia has preserved the first day chosen for Christmas: it is celebrated on the 6th of January and is the feast of the birth and revelation of the Jesus Christ
Armenia also preserved the original form of the feast, commemorating not only the birth but also the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan on January 6th.
