For Pentecost, May 20th this year, the babies wore their best reds (the color of this holy day) and we had a fun dessert after lunch or supper. I actually think we missed the special dessert on Sunday and observed more of Pentecost on the following Monday which is called “Whit Monday,” or “Pentecost Monday.” Two days for Pentecost because some of us need a little more time.
