Merry Christmas and may those who celebrate the Lord's Holy and Blessed Nativity be at peace and filled with joy from Australia!

Salpy, don't the Armenians wait and celebrate all of the events in Christ's life up to His Theophany on the Theophany?

Merry Holidays to those celebrating His birth in the manger and/or His revelation in the Jordan.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yippy!  Can't wait!

Heorhij, the kootia and ozvar (compote) is ready and in place under the icon (pokootya) - even though it made me arrive late to work!

I wish everyone a blessed Nativity Eve, and a joyous Feast day tomorrow!
