I am looking at the official Orthodox Calendar printed by the Bulgarian Patriarchy. What book are you looking at :)?

Edited to add: ok, I compared the list of the Greek name-days on this site with my Orthodox Calendar, and it looks like the Greek Orthodox Church adheres to the 'New Calendar', while the Bulgarian Orthodox Church goes by the 'Old Calendar'. This creates a difference of 13 days between the fixed holidays (like St. George's Day) in the two churches.

Check this link for an explanation of the 'Old' and 'New' Calendar: http://www.smart.net/~mmontes/ortheast.html#fixed
