teasers and a contest
1) "You are the woman!!! I really hope I can be like this someday.."
I have a charming tale of our Friday night just to show how NOT the woman I am and how I also hope I can be like this some day...
2)"What is St. Nicholas oil? I have never heard this. What are its origins, and what purpose does it serve? *Smile*"
I will explain this, since I know Mama isn't Catholic I want to explain it with some background information on sacramentals and such, so stay tuned!
3)"Hey, I thought the oranges-and-shoes thing with St. Nicholas was a Dutch tradition. Maybe you described it in your blog in some other place, but I'm curious: do you have a connection to this tradition in Europe through your family?"
I have an explaination regarding our attachment to St. Nicholas that will require a little more time than I have today. So, again, "coming soon"...
4)"I've never done this with my children, but then I never even knew about this tradition until a couple of years ago and then I think it was too late for us as converts, to start this practice, considering the childrens ages."
St. Nicholas Day is still one of my favorite feasts, and I don't think you can ever be too old to celebrate! Stay tuned!
and FINALLY ~~~
Any guesses regarding what momentous occasion is coming up tomorrow? First one to get the correct answer will get a special gift in the mail from me.
thanks for stopping by, and
I'll Be Back!
