Happy Jesus Circumcision Day !

1st of January falls exactly 8 days after the birth of Jesus Christ. In accordance of Jewish law infant males are circumcised 8 days after birth during what is named Brit milah ceremony ( “covenant of circumcision”).

According to the gospel of Luke 2:21 this was the case for Jesus:

21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

So Merry Christmas and Happy Jesus Circumcision Day everyone !
