"Artwork of Orthodox Nativity Scene for Christmas" image by Desert Island Boy
My latest DeHaan Services article, "Looking for an Orthodox Christmas in Toronto?", explains why Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas later than others. It also lists several Orthodox churches in Toronto for those who want to attend a service.

As always, my Xanga blog ("Orthodox Christmas Delayed by Mis-Matched Calendars") also publicizes my article.

One Seasonal Writing Tip

This seasonal writing tip simply notes that the inspiration for the "Orthodox Christmas" article came from two sources. You might not have the exact same situation, but you can adapt.

First, I happened to hear a reminder about Orthodox Christmas on a newscast.

Second, and more important, I have been practicing my writing tip, "Always ask yourself whether you've just been given an article topic...about everything".

I had recently written about Diwali, Christmas carolling, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. Why neglect this religious group?

Always be on the lookout for inspiration; just like you should keep an eagle eye out for Christmas clearance sales. After all, LED Christmas lights should be bargain-priced in January

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
