20 C + M + B 13

This is one of those lovely years where the date of Epiphany, January 6, twelve days after Christmas, lines up with Sunday, ensuring that the feast receives its full due.

From Darwin's Epiphany 2009 post:

For those of us who are gentile Christians, the feast of the Epiphany holds a special meaning, as it recalls that Christ was done homage as a king by Magi from the East at the time of his birth. Though Matthew's gospel provides few details, the Magi are traditionally recalled as three, with the names Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar. 

I first encountered this classic orchestration of We Three Kings by Eugene Ormandy when I was a child, watching my dad give the annual Christmas Star Show up at the Griffith Observatory. Since the recording is hard to find, and there too it the music provided background to a montage of artistic representations of the Three Kings, I took the liberty of putting together a YouTube video for the occasion.

Ugh, we don't have any chalk. What kind of homeschooler am I? Can you bless the house in dry erase marker or withPost-it notes?

I use a Post-it on my office door, works for me. I don't think we need to be so literal, just enjoy the spirit of the blessing.

Different color lenses give different levels of protection from the UV rays of the sun. For example, amber and brown do a better job of absorbing the UV light. Treatment of clear lenses with anti-reflective coatings will protect the eyes from UV radiation. The best level of protection from UV rays is 100 per cent. The anti-reflective coating has an additional benefit of helping to protect the lenses from some surface scratches.
