2023 Orthodox Children's Calendar: Windows to Heaven (Julian version, old calendar)
Item No. 006565
The 2023 Orthodox Children’s Calendar: Windows to Heaven (decoding the hidden language of icons) is an exploration into holy icons - the practice of iconography, the meaning behind various elements of the icons, and more! Most months focus on one icon and offer a more detailed explanation of colors, hand gestures, background symbolism, etc. We hope that children and adults alike will finish the year with a deeper appreciation of the wisdom offered to us by holy icons, as well as some new recipes and activities in their wheelhouse!
Julian or "old" calendar edition. If you celebrate Christmas/Nativity on January 7, this is the proper calendar for you.
Every calendar includes:
- An extra 2 pages for each month with a recipe and activity to inspire further learning about the icon and/or liturgical season (52 page calendar!)
- Quotes from modern iconographers to inspire budding artists
- Church feasts, American holidays, and highlighted fasting seasons
- Select saint days are featured with a small drawing of that saint, to help little ones put a "face to the name"
- Original art throughout, including watercolor paintings of 11 different icons
- Optional sticker sheet including stickers for name days, baptisms, weddings, birthdays, confession, unction, eucharist, and so much more (kids love these!)
