Won't Someone think of the Chilled Wren?

It's not quite a seasonal thought as yet, but I find it pleasing that the day when one might be thinking of turning to the cold cuts of wren, after the great hunt and feasting that takes place on St Stephen's Day, is also the day that the Church dedicates to a Feast of Children - that is, of the Massacre of the Innocents, on 28th December.

The liturgical calendar has hidden depths, to be sure.
