Christ is Born!
I found it written on a blog that in the West, there is a custom of chanting the major dates of the coming year surrounding the Paschalion. The example given is linked below. I was wondering if it is possible that something parallels this practice in the East, or if anyone could explain how the calendar dates were known by all the parishes and monasteries: calculations, letters, word from the bishop, &c.? Thank you!
