The Last Day of Christmas

It is still Christmas somewhere in the world. In Jerusalem, in the Armenian Quarter to be exact. And every where else the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem holds sway. Armenian (Jerusalem) Christmas is 17 January. Thanks to the confusion generated by the unequal adoption of the Julian and Gregorian calendars and the Orthodox trend to observe Christmas on what the West thinks is Epiphany we have a few more days to bask in the light of the marvel that is the miracle of the Incarnation. Merry Christmas one and all!
