Thanks. One of those useless talents we all have that are fascinating to other people but won't earn a living. :laugh:

Just finished watching the Hart to Hart episodes 'Twas the Christmas to be murdered' on Youtube.

Merry Christmas in August! September is on it's way! :peekleaves2: :scene: :snowwow:

When I leave my tree and decorations up after January 6th I always tell people that Christmas isn't over till Candlemass and that it starts at Michaelmass which is at the end of September. They, of course, think I'm a little crazy - Christmas crazy! :lol:

I read on another blog that someone counted St Wenceslaus Day as the beginning of 'Christmas'. That is one day sooner on September 28. :lol:

St. Wenceslaus
(Also Vaclav, Vaceslav.)

Duke, martyr, and patron of Bohemia, born probably 903; died at Alt-Bunzlau, 28 September, 935.

His parents were Duke Wratislaw, a Christian, and Dragomir, a heathen. He received a good Christian education from his grandmother (St. Ludmilla) and at Budweis. After the death of Wratislaw, Dragomir, acting as regent, opposed Christianity, and Wenceslaus, being urged by the people, took the reins of government. He placed his duchy under the protection of Germany, introduced German priests, and favoured the Latin rite instead of the old Slavic, which had gone into disuse in many places for want of priests. Wenceslaus had taken the vow of virginity and was known for his virtues. The Emperor Otto I conferred on him the regal dignity and title. For religious and national motives, and at the instigation of Dragomir, Wenceslaus was murdered by his brother Boleslaw. The body, hacked to pieces, was buried at the place of murder, but three years later Boleslaw, having repented of his deed, ordered its translation to the Church of St. Vitus in Prague. The gathering of his relics is noted in the calendars on 27 June, their translation on 4 March; his feast is celebrated on 28 September.
