Celebrating Cyril and Methodius Day!

Around here, we don't do Valentine's Day. I stopped celebrating it in college. I love chocolate, but it's so much sweeter at 75% off! And then you get more, too!

We make Valentines for the grandparents because they care, and because the kids enjoy it.

But, for the most part, we put all our efforts towards celebrating Cyril and Methodius, instead.

Why? Because today is THEIR feast day, too! And they invented an ALPHABET. (That's why the Russian Alphabet is called 'Cyrrillic" and looks suspiciously Greek. Cyril and Methodius created it so the Slavs could have their own translation of the Bible.)

Seriously. The guys were awesome. Look them up: Cyril and Methodius in the Catholic Encyclopedia.

So how will we Mundys be celebrating?

Greek Chicken and Potatoes. (MMMM Greek food)
Maybe a big budget classic hollywood Greek flick?

.....oh. And Pink Cupcakes. For the kids.
