Yes, we have talked about Chillin’ the Veuve around here for a long time. Other people out there are celebrating in other ways. Some formally and liturgically, some less liturgically. All joyfully.
Here is one e-mail I got. My Finnish is as strong as my Turkish and my Basque, but our friend translated it for us:
Rev. Fr. Z.,
here is a link to my blog in Finnish about Catholic Liturgy… this one article is telling how my family celebrated the motu: by eating Finnish caviar with toast and new potatoes and smetana (Russian sour cream) and onion AND having a bottle of Veuve, of course — it seemed like a universal thing to do for this reason.
Best, prayerful greetings,
Did you all have fun today? Do you have celebration plans?
Let us know what is going on with you and yours.
