Celebrate St Stephen's Day

As we, like the Good King, look round about on the Feast of Stephen, just a little reminder - Christmas is just begun and will continue until Epiphany.

The second day of Christmas:

St. Stephen's Day, or the Feast of St. Stephen, is a Christian saint's day celebrated on 26 December in the Western Church and 27 December in the Eastern Church. Many Eastern Orthodox churches adhere to the Julian calendar and mark St. Stephen's Day on 27 December according to that calendar, which places it on January 9 of the Gregorian calendar used in secular contexts. It commemorates St Stephen, the first Christian martyr or protomartyr.
