Happy Cyril’s Day

Today is the feast day of Saint Cyril, who baptised the Slavs and invented an amusingly incomprehensible alphabet. Nice one, Cyril.

What’s that? You say he’s not the only saint whose feast day is today? You’re right: it’s also the feast day of Cyril’s brother Methodius. I wonder why it got called the Cyrillic alphabet and not the Methodical alphabet?

So, congratulations to Cyril and Methodius. May they be remembered every February 14.

    Only for Catholics. Orthodox Christians have to wait until May to celebrate the Feast Day of St Cyril.
