14th of January – Julian Calendar

Julian calendar is the predecessor of the Gregorian Calendar in the western world. The two calendars have identical month names and number of days in each month, and differ only in the rule for leap years. The Julian calendar has a leap year every fourth year, while the Gregorian calendar has a leap year every fourth year except century years not exactly divisible by 400.

The Julian calendar is currently 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar, so that, for instance, January 1st in the Julian calendar is January 14th of the Gregorian.
