Category:Sundays after Christmas
In the tridentine rite the Sundays after Christmas are the Sunday within the Octave of the Nativity (Domenica infra Octavam Nativitatis) and, when it falls within the twelve day season, the Holy Name of Jesus (Festum Sanctissimi Nominis Jesu). The Second Vatican Council in 1970 moved the Holy Family to the first Sunday (from Sunday following Epiphany) and moved Holy Name to Jan. 3, leaving room for a Second Sunday after Christmas (but in the USA Epiphany is almost always transferred to this Sunday).
Protestant kalendars name these Christmas I and Christmas II (not to be confused with the first and second Masses of Christmas), but the propers remained roughly in the old order when the three-year lectionary was adopted.
