Puzzle Calendar

brit-with-calendarOne fun tradition I’ve shared with the young miss for many years is reassembling this calendar. We piece together the month title, date numbers, and holidays on this puzzle my wife picked up unopened at a garage sale sometime in the distant past. It has substitution squares for birthdays, the main secular holidays, a few religious holidays. It has a rose we use for family anniversaries. It has a US and Canadian flag for national observances. There’s a Star of David for Jewish feasts: we used it last month for Purim and Brit knew the what and why of the story of Esther from our parish’s Generations of Faith earlier this year. We even have a full moon square–sweet.

brit-with-puzzle-piece1Nice conversation when we were piecing it together for April. The young miss usually checks for holidays. Easter, of course. No family events or other holidays otherwise. She noted that the full moon occurs on the first day of Passover. (That’s what we call an astronomical constant.) So I asked which should get priority on the calendar.

I think religion is more important than the moon. No offense.

None taken.
