Saint Michael's Day Party...

Saint Lucy:  White Nightgown, Red Ribbon Sash, Holly Leaf and 
Berry Crown, and Tray with Cookies

Saint Innocent of Alaska:  Black bathrobe cassock, Papa's priest hat 
with white playsilk for a metropolitan klobuk, and bald eagle

Prophet Jonah:  Mama's cotton sweater, woven belt, blue playsilk 
scarf for a hat, and wooden whale



Today was our parish's Saint Michael's Day Party!  We always choose the Sunday between Halloween and Saint Michael and the Bodiless Powers feast day (November 8th).  The children dress up as angels, saints, or clergy and then line up for the adult to guess who they are.  We also enjoyed a cook out (probably the last of the year) and each family brought something exciting to do.  This year's fun included:  pumpkin bowling (roll a pumpkin at water bottles), a doughnut tree (we hung doughnuts from ribbon all along our pergola and the little ones try to eat them off the ribbon without using their hands), a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, bobbing for apples, and a candy corn guessing game.  Every year we try to make our party better and we are hoping to have some trails cleared  for a "hayride" (the mower and wagon) through the woods for the next one!


Does your church have a Saint Michael's Day party?

What a nice tradition! I love the costumes. Would mind sharing how you made the St. Lucy crown?

Thank you Elizabeth and Kristine!

I actually bought the St. Lucy crown on etsy. Here's the link:

That sounds wonderful! Our church does not have a St. Michael's party, but I hope to do this next year for my son, Michael. He'll be two by then. Hope you don't mind if I use some of these ideas?

M. Emily said...

Please do, Hannah!!

So creative! I always admired playsilks but never ordered them. I'm glad to see your children enjoying them. And I love the eagle.
