"С Рождеством Христовым!"

For all my friends who are celebrating Orthodox Christmas, I wish you Merry Christmas. 

The family were here for supper tonight.  I am sure we had 12 different dishes but not all meatless and there was no buckwheat and honey in sight either.

I would like to go to the midnight service but it starts at midnight.  So we have been watching the evening service from the Cathedral in Moscow and listening to the Patriarch's Christmas Message.  Moscow is two hours ahead of us.

  5. Christmas blessings, ol Donkey.

    Hey, I just figured out that you had a key part in the Christmas story. Wow!

    An interesting question came up: Could Jesus be born in Saskatchewan?

    Well, we've got enough sheep and shepherds.

    Lots of women are of child-bearing age.

    Three wise men. Could be tricky. Emmett Hall is dead. Tommy Douglas is dead.

    But we still have "Red" Williams — that's maybe a start.

  7. Hi, Bear. Three Wise Men might be a problem for Saskatchewan. Other countries such as the Bride Basket of Europe might suffer a shortage of other items.
    Louisette, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I see you like golden retrievers. They are truly wonderful dogs.
