8 January 2018. Only in Russia… Shashlik for Christmas… on the OUTDOOR Grill

_________________________

This is a real-deal Russian preparing grilled shashlik for CHRISTMAS. I shit you not. I do believe that the eaters are waiting inside… it’s true that shashlik over charcoal is legit to the max, but sometimes we Russians justify the Western view that we’re Europe’s crazy cousins. Not that I’d want to change that…

7 January 2018. A Little Pravoslavny Humour… “Hey, We Already Went This Way Before!”

7 January 2018. Here’s How HH Spent Christmas… With the Homeless

________________________

HH spent Christmas as he always spends major feasts… with the lowly and hurting of this world. Next to him is the inimitable Bishop Panteleimon Shatov, the MP tsar for social justice and social action. Do note that loudmouths such as Shevkunov, Alfeyev, Potapov, and Paffhausen don’t do likewise. After, all there are oligarchs, stockbrokers, real-estate developers, and biznessmen to minister to! Why, even the thought of associating with such low-lifes…

This is why HH is the bomb and why the people I just named are posturing wussies. When you have done this to the least of these, my brethren… HH shows the way, as always.

6 January 2018. Today is Catholic Epiphany… Their Twelve Days of Christmas End as Ours Begin

The Adoration of the Magi

Daniel Mitsui

2000s

________________________

Today is Catholic Epiphany. Their Twelve Days of Christmas end today. Our Twelve Days of Christmas begin tomorrow. That is, if you’re a party-animal and general rabble-rouser, celebrate with your Catholic friends until 6 January and then move on over to your Orthodox friends on 7 January. However… there’s a fly in the ointment… if you want to party with us Pravoslavny sorts, do remember that we jump in ice-holes outdoors on our Epiphany and we’ll drag you along to join in the fun.

Good wishes to all of my friends keeping the Catholic feast…
