One of the Christmas traditions in our monastery is Open House in the novitiate. Usually on Epiphany Sunday the novices host evening recreation for the professed sisters who aren't allowed up in the novitiate unless for classes or by invitation of the novice mistress.
Another tradition is the crowning of the "three kings", that is the 3 sisters who found the bean in her muffin at breakfast! This year, Sr. Maria Agnes, Sr. Mary Amata and Sr. Mary Jeremiah are our "kings". Later a Mass will be offered for their intentions.
We spent the rest of recreation "cutting lose" by singing Christmas carols, bot the sacred ones and the fun ones like Jingle Bells.
