The Feast of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist

I spoke of Thy testimonies before kings, and I was not ashamed; I meditated also on Thy commandments, which I loved exceedingly.

Despite the fact that the good Saint John touched no strong drink during his life on earth, we decided that we had to honor Peter's birthday with a liter of Ottakringer dunkles.

Happy Birthday, Peter!

There's a big prost for you.

When I noticed which feast day it was, I instantly wondered what sort of observance you might be giving it. . .
