- Wear outfits with shades of green to Liturgy.
- Bring flowers and greenery to church to hold during Kneeling Vespers.
- Decorate family icon corners with greenery.
- Sing the Troparion of the Feast for the prayer before meals.
- Read The Feast of Pentecost and the story of Pentecost from a children's Bible with the children.
- Display the Pentecost Icon on your feastday shelf. If you don't have one, print a coloring page and color it in!
- Serve green foods for lunch and dinner. I am thinking about Chicken Caesar Salad for lunch and Homemade Pizza with Alfredo Sauce, Broccoli, and Sausage for dinner.
If you are looking for some more ideas (especially from the Roman Catholic perspective), head over to Jessica's blog to read about some things that she will be doing with her little ones! I love her suggestions for flying kites and enjoying a cake with strawberries and candles for desert! If you have any traditions for this feast, I would enjoy hearing them!
I really love and admire how much love and thought goes into all you do for your family <3
Thanks for the ideas! Hope you are doing well!
I am a 'recent' (a little over two years) convert to Orthodoxy. I have not heard of the blessing of flowers on Pentecost. Could you write a little about that tradition? Thank you, I enjoy your blog!
Ack! Mama Juliana, I made a huge mistake! We bless flowers on the feast of Dormition, not Pentecost. We carry flowers and greens during Kneeling Vespers. I will post an article on it. I am so sorry for the confusion!
