I remember reading a book in which it was recounted that a certain elder (for some reason, my mind associates this story with Elder Joseph the Hesychast or Elder Paisios, but I could be wrong) commenced his nightly vigil with a cup of coffee.  If I'm not mistaken, he referred to it as a friend of vigils.  Smiley

If the bolded portion is what it means to be boring, then you are not alone.  I'm 100% South Indian jungle man for centuries.  To get the very small fraction of Palestinian/Aramean/Jewish/whatever that I suspect is in my family line, you basically have to go back to the first century AD or earlier.  So again, 100% boring jungle man here...

Didn't know ZealosuZeal is Polish!

Well, but "pure" ethnicity is not so obvious even in the old world. That's not only me (Serbian, Polish, Montenegrin, grand-grand-grand-fathers inone line Rusyn something etc. I also suspect some oooooold Turkish or/and Arabic roots from my Serbian side Cheesy), but I know some other people from my family and some my friends that has not so simply situation regarding ancestors.


It's probably my little "tradition" to present here my festal pictures. So, the:
First Christmas Day

Second Christmas Day

(I hope it works this way, as now I have problems with attaching)

In the background you can see my arrangement for the Nativity feast. The icon (I know, it's not canonical Wink maybe one day I'll buy bigger and more traditional one) is enveloped in a material brought from Romania, and the grass with the candle is a Serbian tradition, called žito; it's usually placed on a table and it's being grown up by the family ~two weeks before Christmas. Inside it a candle is put, and around the grass or the pot we tie a ribbon with the national colours.

Surely, we have also a Christmas Tree, because it has every Polish and Serbian family. However, we haven’t had any time badnjak (just google it, if you don’t know what is it), because it’s not possible to get a bran of oak tree in December in Poland.
