    Mexican feast fit for a king
    Because I left Mexico when I was 6, my recollections of our holiday traditions are often dreamlike and vague. But my memory of Three Kings Day, or el Día de los Reyes Magos, remains vivid because it came right after Christmas, in the first week of...
  • The sweet taste of Christmas

    The sweet taste of Christmas
    Raffi Kendirjian clearly remembers celebrating Christmas Eve as a boy growing up in Beruit — the family gathered at the home of an elderly relative, broke fast and waited for the parish priest and council members to make the rounds through the...
  • Intersections: Breaking bread with two identities

    King cakes are a great way to indulge before Lent
    At first sight, it comes across as, well, a little unusual. A large wreath-shaped cake bedazzled in vibrant shades of purple, green and gold — there's nothing subtle about it. It might be flavored simply with a touch of cinnamon sugar, or maybe it's...
  • Advent, sticklers, which/that, and more

    A brief preface for the liturgically uninformed: Kathleen looked up from the comics pages this morning and marveled, "There are really people who think that this is the second day of Christmas." I believe she was looking at Mother Goose and Grimm. The...
  • You know the holiday cliches. Shun them

    The repetitions of ritual are the point. They establish continuity and reassurance through familiarity. So you can be sure that you will hear "O Come, All Ye Faithful" at the late-night service on Christmas Eve, that you will eat the same holiday dinners,...
