Advent

.
Latin: com- means "with" and pān(is) means "bread."
So literally, COMPANIONS are those with whom we break bread.
.
A blessed second Sunday of Advent to all my Christian friends.

Thanks for the comments on my blog. Wish you a brilliant second Sunday of Advent!:-)

Dina said...

Spiderdama shalom. Being Jewish, I don't observe Advent and Christmas; but "some of my best friends," being Christian, do. And this blog is for people of all faiths, or none.
So glad you had fun climbing cliffs all over Israel. Your photos are terrific!

Hi Dina, you are such a great person to think of the holidays for other religions. You know so much about them. I think that Christmas is holiday especially for the cold northern hemisphere, where everybody is longing for the light returning. We celebrate symbolically the Birth of the Light in the person of Jesus. The Celts and Vikings had also their feasts of the returning light. And the Hindus have their festivity of light. Most important is that we all share our light. Be de-LIGHT-ful and have a great week!

Never thought about the origin of companion before. I can't wait to share that thought.

Glad you liked "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Sometimes I'm a little too serious, so I was proud of that post.

Moravian star posted today, if you are interested. I like your comment "for people of all faiths, or none." That's how I feel about Sacred Sunday.

Now, time for me to get back and see what I've missed on your blog!! Shalom....

I always learn something on your blog.

There is something spiritual about sharing a meal with somebody.

You are generous, Dina.

And as we were speaking of hats today, J. says he likes yours.

Thank you for the blessed wish. Now

a nightshirt doesn't have a bottom in it does it?

Now that is quite interesting to know. I took Latin and don't remember much at all. I love how you've ALWAYS been so open and respectful of the beliefs of everyone in the world. You really are fabulous, Dina!
