Celebrating the Epiphany

Apart from Mass (see previous post) we celebrated the Epiphany with a fabulous bonfire in freezing conditions. We roasted potatoes for our tea in it, and had tea by candlelight. Despite all the admonitions of the Health and Safety people, we still have candles on our Christmas Tree every year, and light them for the major feasts.

Then of course all the decorations had to come down - do bishops have to remove their decorations on the preceding Sunday, I wonder? Come to that, when they go to the theatre do they prefer Twelfth Night (or the Nearest Sunday) by William Shakespeare?

The cribs, of course, stay up till the Purification.
