i thought St Martin’s Day was today even though we’ve celebrated on the right day in the past. when Andy questioned me, i assured him that it’s November 12th. curious.
so today we’l l be celebrating giving with this coloring sheet from Charlotte at Waltzing Matilda. i think we’ll probably make cinnamon toast cloaks too. i just love her discussion of the proper time to put the butter and cinnamon on the bread! i am firmly in the before-you-toast camp! she also linked to a poem over at Margaret in Minnesota’s place that i think we’ll read.
so, happy St Martin’s Day! the beginning of winter, a turn in the darkening season. light your lanterns against the dark. i heard from a bird that there will be more about the coming Advent celebrations over at everyday snapshots. Pam is hosting Living Liturgies! a way for us to think and plan and bring the wonder of the Church year into our homes.
