First Monday of January (and the Epiphany)

Did you notice that today was the Epiphany? I bet you didn't, just like me in fact. This morning I thought: "This is the first Monday of January and there is a full week of work ahead of me." And this is what I thought I would be blogging about. But officially, this is the last day of Christmastime. Funny to think that, as I usually get into a post-Christmas blues before January. For me, the Epiphany means something else entirely. And today, I didn't even notice the day. It was a cold and wet Monday, as grey as a Monday can be, looking as post-Christmas as a January Monday could be.

Yes, it's Epiphany under our modern Gregorian calendar but Christmas Eve under the old Julian calendar.
