“For the Christian ought to hold feasts, not for months, nor new moons, nor Lord’s days, but continually through life to conduct a feast befitting him. What is the feast that befits him…If then you have a clean conscience, you hold a feast continually, nourished with good hopes, and reveling in the delight of the good things to come…”

(St John Chrysostom, homily on the New Year)
