Feast of St. Barbara

Jenn in Family Feast and Feria has done a great job explaining today's feast of St. Barbara.

My favorite author, Maria von Trapp, while carrying her first child born in America, had decided to finally name a baby at the Captain's request, after the patroness of sailors, St. Barbara.
What a surprise when Barbara was born a boy! Johannes runs the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont today.

Thanks for the link to my blog!

I love that Trapp story...calling the baby "Barbara" all the way through until Johannes was born. I was thinking of that story all day yesterday.
