A Belated "Happy New Year!" and then on to business as usual

As many of you know, the Byzantine New Year is on 1 September. Consequently, I wasn't one to stay up just to watch a ball drop to the delight of a drunken mob. The first of January is, for Byzantine Christians, the Feast of the Circumcision of the Lord. (Yes, we do take the reality of the Incarnation very seriously.)

Today is the tenth day of Christmas, for those of you keeping count of the backyard menagerie. (By the bye, I suspect most people would need to pawn the five golden rings to pay for the feed necessary for all those geese a-laying and other gifts!)

So, on with 'business as usual....
