Late for solstice or early for Christmas...

...either way, I am not worthy! P gave me a Kindle and a card to fill it up with. I don't think I've been so pleased with a computer-like device since I bought Cowzilla back in 2004. I'm looking forward to unleashing the full power of this battlestationdevice next semester, since I intend to buy all my textbooks for the Kindle and not spend hundreds of dollars in the school bookstore. Especially since I can't deduct those books from my taxes. >:(

Speaking of Christmas, since I'm hanging out with the Ukrainian Catholics these days, Christmas is apparently on the Old Style calendar*, since the Mass for tomorrow is at 0930 in memoriam, and the Sunday Mass is the Sunday of the Forefathers. As best I can figure out from OrthodoxWiki, we'll actually be celebrating Christmas on January 7.

*No, not the beer.

Kind of new at this aren't you?
Of course Christmas is celebrated on the 7th that is when the Magi brought all those keen but slightly impractical prezzies.
It is also celebrated on the 25th as that in the anniversary of His birth.

Nothing impractical about gold in the least, and frankincense is pretty valuable itself, as is myrrh.

Getting used to having my regular and ecclesiastical calendars out of sync is going to take some time, I think.
