Old Christmas

Record #:
On January 6, the village of Rodanthe in the Outer Banks of North Carolina celebrates Old Christmas. This is a tradition based on when the Gregorian calendar replaced the Julian calendar, changing the date of Christmas. Part of Rodanthe’s traditional festivities is a visit from Old Buck, a character based on the legend of an old wild bull that terrorized the village until a hunter got rid of him.
