Linen/cotton blend wall hanging or tea towel displaying the Orthodox Christian liturgical calendar (September through August) for churches on the “Old” (Julian) Calendar. Colored onion domes represent the six traditional colors of vestments used in Orthodox churches in the US (and many other countries). The liturgical colors of the Orthodox Christian church are a visual reminder of what season we are in, what or who we are remembering, and how joyful or somber our days should be. Hang this calendar in your home, church, or classroom as a ready reference, as a teaching tool, as a way to bring church into your home, or simply a reminder for each season. After the year is over, the wall hanging becomes a towel perfect for drying dishes, hands, or wheat berries for koliva!
