Old New Year is not an official holiday of the calendar, but it is traditionally celebrated on the night of 13 on January 14.
Old New Year was celebrated according to the Julian calendar, which was in force in Europe until the late 16th century. In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII introduced a new way of chronology, which was named in honor of his Gregorian. In Ukraine and other countries only in 1918 there was a tradition to celebrate two New Year - the Old and New Style.
Two reasons to celebrate the New Year were due to the transition from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian valid, the difference between which is exactly 13 days.
