Biblical images are depicted on the hanging chandelier on the second floor during Christmas Eve service at the Serbian Orthodox Church in Fair Oaks on Monday night, January 6, 2014. Thousands of Sacramento residents don't celebrate Christmas on December 25th - they observe the 2014 year old Julian calendar, and will be celebrating Christmas Eve on January 6th and Christmas January 7th. Those launching the holiday include Russians, Serbians, Ethiopians and other followers of the Eastern Orthodox Church on three continents.
