Another January tradition in Memory of our ancestors

When I was researching Epiphany day I found that some Eastern European countries historically celebrated it on the 19th of January. They focused more on Christ’s baptism and ministry. Traditionally this holiday put a lot of focus on water symbolism and blessing one’s house.

To remember this day, I made a nice fresh salmon dinner and we read about Christ’s baptism by John. Ben also blessed our home. If anyone is interested and would like to learn more about this holiday or more about what Ben and I did to honor this day and our Ancestor’s memories, feel free to contact me.
