D'oh! I had completely forgotten St. Lucy's day. Too bad that I've probably missed the processions. I'd really like to see Finnish Orthodox parishes embrace this custom.

It's an Orthodox beard blow dryer. And this brings up another controversial issue: Is it appropriate for Priests to blow dry their beards in Church? Feel free to move this topic to "faith issues."

This is interesting.  I know it isn't a polar bear, but I do not recognize the actual animal species.  Maybe someone else can figure it out.  In any event, whatever it is, it is cute.

Together with my father and uncle we have arranged some meat for the Nativity.

Photos are not exceptionally good but IMO they have great ethnographic value.
