Feast of St. John the Baptist

Beth Alice over at the Chronicles of Mommia has a wonderful post on traditions for celebrating this important feast day. We are filling the swimming pool, and bathing in it, which is the only tradition I knew of in honor of St. John the Baptist.
Today at Mass, the priest reminded us that normally, a feast day which falls on a Sunday is superceded by the fact that it is Sunday. St. John the Baptist, however is important enough to receive recognition although it is Sunday.
