Saint Nikon

Today is the feast day of Saint Nikon! In the Eastern Orthodox Church saints have a great importance and each saint has their special day. The 26 of November is Saint Nikonย 

I didn’t realize that there was a saint Nikon until I passed a village named Agios Nikon (Agios means saint in Greek) in the southern Mani on the Peloponese (Greece).
Here is a photo of the road sign at the entrance of the village to prove it all: https://www.west-crete.com/dailypics/photos3/agios-nikon.jpg

The sign has the wrong colors -- should be black on yellow. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good find! The Saint Nikon I was referring to is another saint (the orthodox christians are really into their saints!) who lived mainly in Greece: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_the_Metanoeite

So in effect we now have at least two saint Nikon

Interesting.  And this Saint Nikon's feast day is today, Nov. 26th!  I think it would be appropriate to hold up our favorite lens and do a toast. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Indeed, here is to Saint Nikon (I am holding up the PC-E 85mm)! And may he protect us all from doom and gloom threads like this one https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64586887
