Advent is Almost Upon Us

This article explains the Nativity Fast,  which for New Calendar believers begins this Monday,  November 15.   Here’s some guidelines.

This article suggests that the Eastern Orthodox way of celebrating Nativity (Christmas) may prevent the holiday blues.  The idea is that the world is in darkness and a kind of famine until the Light of Christ burst into the world at the Nativity and this famine of spirit is paralleled by a sort of a physical famine of body.

Meanwhile,  I discovered these seaweed snacks!  They are low-calorie, vegan and an addictive alternative to potato chips.  Get ’em at Trader Joe’s.

Today is the 13th day of VeganMoFo and NaNoWriMo.

Today the Church commemorates Apostles Stachys, Amplias, Urban, Narcissus, Apelles, and Aristobulus of the Seventy.
