For those of us on the new calendar, a very happy and blessed St Basil`s day to you all ! And a Happy New Year :-)
For the first time ever, I baked a Vasilopitta in honour of the saint. Because I knew where the coin was (as I had taken the cake out of the tin and cut it), I asked each member of the family to choose a number from 1 - 8 inclusive, and they had the piece assigned to that number, which seemed a fair way of doing it ....
and DH had the lucky piece....long life, health and prosperity to my beloved DH !!
2005 is going to be a year in which we attempt to follow as many of Holy Church`s traditions and commemorations as possible :-))
