Forefeast of Nativity

Greetings to everybody on the first day of the forefeast of the Nativity! Beginning today, the church accelerates her spiritual preparation for the feast:

"Dance, O Sion! / Adorn thyself well, O cave! / Make ready, O Bethlehem! / For, lo! The Virgin cometh // to give birth unto the Christ!"
