Burning of the Greens 2005
On Sunday, January 8, roughly 100 people turned out to celebrate the 12th Day of Christmas a little late with a burning of the greens on the church grounds. Though there is no religious significance to burning the Christmas trees, it did give us a good excuse for a bonfire, oyster roast, low country boil (a mix of potatoes, corn on the cob, sausage and shrimp, boiled together), and a chance to enjoy one another's company. Thanks to Kenn Hodge and Alfred Abel for supplying some of the photos. You may also be interested in a post on the religious significance of partying at King of Peace's web log, Irenic Thoughts.
