“It was my daughter’s first day of Kindergarten and it was at a Catholic school. I was anticipating my daughter going through an adjustment, not only because it was Kindergarten but also because it was a religious-based school. After I dropped of my daughter, I couldn’t wait to pick her back up. I showed up 30 minutes early just waiting to hear all she had to say. Once in my car I asked, “How was your day?” “I prayed everything!” Allex exclaims. And she goes on to list all the praying she did during the day. I’m guessing the transition to a Catholic school was a little different for her.”

A group of high school students gave the crowd a treat when they imagined how a group of monks under a vow of silence might put on a Christmas program. They creatively perform the “Hallelujah Chorus” that had everyone in the crowd in laughter. Without uttering a word, they did a wonderful job – what a fun program!

Evidently, spending years laying out a single gold-leafed page isn't all it's cracked up to be.

From The Atlantic

“The history of bookmaking hasn’t been without its challenges, but never was its craft as painstaking as during the era of illuminated manuscripts. Joining the ranks of history’s most appalling and amusing complaints, like this Victorian list of “don’ts” for female cyclists or young Isaac Newton’s self-professed sins, is an absolute treat for lovers of marginalia such as myself—a collection of complaints monks scribbled in the pages of illuminated manuscripts.”
