Little Christmas

In my family, today we celebrate a second, smaller Christmas on January 7th. My father, part Russian, always called this "Little Christmas" - Christmas as celebrated by Eastern Orthodox Churches using the Julian Calendar. Although it seems dad appropriated the name from the Irish holiday celebrated the day before. So happy (belated, if you celebrate the Irish way) Little Christmas from me to you.

I've also been caught up a bit in some exciting new projects at work so I'm very, very late in updating. Hopefully you'll find tomorrow's post worth the wait! :)
