The celebration of the feast of the Nativity of Christ in the Orthodox Church is patterned after the celebration of the feast of the Lord&rsquo;s Resurrection. A fast of forty days precedes the feast, with special preparatory days announcing the approaching birth of the Savior. Thus, on Saint Andrew&rsquo;s Day (November 30th) and Saint Nicholas Day (December 6th) songs are sung to announce the coming birthday of the Lord: &lsquo;Adorn yourself, O Cavern. Make ready, O Manger. O Shepherds and wisemen, bring your gifts and bear witness. For the Virgin is coming bearing Christ in her womb&rsquo; (Vesperal Hymn of Saint Nicholas Day)</p> St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church http://www.stmichael-delaware-oca.org/news_161115_1.html
