Word of the day

Xerophagy –  the strictest Christian fast which is observed chiefly in the Eastern churches during Lent,  especially Holy Week, and in which only bread, salt, water, and vegetables may be eaten; a restrictive diet as a punishment or religious discipline.

    The monks barely eat at all in Holy Week and from sunset on Thursday until Sunday morning they don’t eat anything, just water

    But Sunday is a feast of course

    aside: Our morning meal’s name is taken from this breakfast is break fast

    We used to have a huge roast meal when we got home from Church on Sunday morning around 5am it would be, a big party

    And fireworks – those days are gone alas

    Easter meant so much more to us than Christmas as children
