Just had to share this one!
Yesterday, one of my employees (a Roman Catholic) asked if she could come in an hour later this morning as there was a "Birthday Breakfast" for her "Mother" that she didn't want to miss out on.
It's taken me until now to realise that she had gone to Mass for the RC Feast of the Nativity of the Mother of God!
This pious "half truth"ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š pleases me no end!
This is not only a Latin Catholic Feast day.
The Greek Orthordox Metropolis of Toronto (Canada) celebrates the Bith of the Mother of Most Holy Theotokos and Athanasius on September 8th. I assume that they would be on the revised Julian Calendar ?
