Old School Thursday: Boring, Yet Holy Edition

Today is National Vanilla Cupcake Day, proving that even boring (though delicious) foods need their day in the sun.

It’s also St. Tryphon day, the patron of gardeners – a patronage he shares with St. Sebastian, St. Gertrude of Nivelles and St. Fiacres, and probably a lot more saints who don’t have honorary days falling on Thursday this year. According to, there are more than 10,000 saints, and even the church doesn’t have a complete count. Not all of them have honorary days, but even if only a third of them do, well, it’s easy to see why there’s some doubling up for the gardeners.

And that’s about it for today. Enjoy that vanilla cupcake!
