What is the most appropriate way to celebrate this auspicious occasion?

Feasting, some prayer, and protecting innocents from German or Norse raiders and/or other lawless elements.

Happy Feast Day - Michaelmas has always been a favorite Feast. When I was young, it was the name's day of our abbot, so always kept as a festival in the abbey. Then I lived for some 25 years at St Michael's Priory - so it continued to be a day for celebration. So, enjoy the feast - probably good that it falls on a Friday, opening up some options....
Cheers,
John

Thanks! One would hope for such options, but alas! I ended up victimized by some bad scheduling. Maybe tomorrow....

No, but it is an utterly romantic name, of a great – if flawed – queen (tied to two great – if flawed – men, not to be sexist....)

Thanks to your timely post, I just now realized that the angel-feast that I walked into mass late for (and then wondered what it was for the rest of mass) is that famous MICHELMAS by which things are always happening in medieval books (especially Kristin Lavrandatter).

I FEEL SO CATHOLIC NOW THAT I ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT MICHELMAS IS.

So, thanks for making my day and stuff.

Also I just now realized it is your nameday or feastday or patron saint day or something like it, and also my brother's. Happy whatever it is!

And by "is" I do mean "was".
30th-Sep-2006 10:23 pm (UTC)
Of course you do.
30th-Sep-2006 10:22 pm (UTC)
Exactly!
30th-Sep-2006 10:21 pm (UTC)
It makes my day that I made your day! A chain reaction of bliss!

I don't wish to disrespect Michaelmas, but I did have a great time wishing people a Merry Michaelmas and seeing if they knew what I was talking about. A couple actually did. What a way to learn about people.

Doesn't sound disrespectful to me at all! Excellent!
