It is only fitting …


that the current header stay up this week, and into the next, as the feast of Epiphany is celebrated on the 6th of January.

“Epiphany is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. It falls on January 6 or, in many countries, on the Sunday that falls between January 2 and January 8.[2][3] Since the Julian Calendar, which is followed by some Eastern Churches, is at present 13 days behind the Gregorian Calendar and the revised Julian Calendar, 6 January in that calendar corresponds at present to 19 January in what is the official civil calendar in most countries. On this feast, Western Christians commemorate principally the visitation of the Biblical Magi to the Baby Jesus, i.e., his manifestation to the Gentiles; Eastern Christians commemorate the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, seen as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God. It is also called Theophany, especially by Eastern Christians.

The fake snow falling will stop (thanks Word Press) on or about the 3rd of January. By the end of next week a new header will find it’s place at the top of this bit of fluff on the interweb. In between now and then, from all of us here at the Harbor, may each and every one of you out there have the Happiest of New Years! May (continued) good health, wealth and happiness find its way to you all!

  1. 7 January is also Eastern Orthodox Christmas, and given what has happened over the first of the new year in Alexandria, I may find some meaningful way to commemorate the day. Any ideas?

    • Perhaps finding out if there is some sort of relief agency which may require additional aid, in order to meet the needs of those who were attacked in practicing their faith during this time of the year. Other than that, just getting the word out about this (one of a continuing many) act of terror perpetrated by the followers of “the religion of peace” (yes, those are scorn quotes!!).
