Christmas Novenas

November 30 is the last day of November, but it’s also the feast day of St. Andrew, one of Christ’s Apostles. Thus, I am bringing up the St. Andrew Christmas Novena, which starts today and goes to December 24. Yes, I know that is not a period of nine days, so I don’t know why they can still call it a novena, but here you go anyway:

There’s also a different novena you can say that actually is nine days long. It starts on December 16 and finishes on Christmas Eve: The website notes that this novena matches up with the O Antiphons, which is nice if you’re also reciting those in the days leading up to Christmas.

I admit, there was an ulterior motive for mentioning the St. Andrew Christmas Novena today–it is also the last day of National Blog Post Writing Month, and since I started out the month with a saint post (All Saints’ Day to be precise), I thought it would be nice to bring everything full circle by ending with a saint post.
