On Mount Athos the Julian Calendar is used (13 days behind the Gregorian Calendar). Also in use is the Byzantine time, in which the day starts at sunset (and not at midnight as in civil time). Due to seasonal variations in the length of a day, hour zero can vary by several hours throughout the year.
