Happy Carnival!

Today is Carnival Thursday in Reform Unitarianism, the first of the “dozenal” called the 12 Days of Carnival, which culminates two weeks from now on Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras. As the day to introduce the themes of revelry in this movable feast time, Carnival Thursday is one of the many Little Thursdays that have set themes for worship and homilies.

This is a time to celebrate life, youth, and the bounties of Creation, but also a time to prepare for the fasting and solemnity of the upcoming Lent season.



(The following liturgical seasons have been added to the blog’s Liturgical Calendar : Carnival, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost.)
