When is Christmas?

edited December 1969 in Coptic Orthodox Church
Hey Everyone
I know this sounds like a weird question but i was reading on the www.copticheritage.org site on the Rites of Nativity and I found something very interesting
It is worth noting that if the Feast of the Nativity falls on 28 Kiahk, and is on either a Tuesday or a Thursday, the 29 Kiahk remains a fasting day, since it will fall on a Wednesday or Friday
Does that mean that Christmas can be on either 28th of Kiahk or 29???
I thought it was always on the 29th... but because of the leap year every 4 years its on the 8th of Jan and the rest its on 7th of Jan... BUT its always on 29, am i wrong??
