The End is Near...

....for the annual Octave, that is. The two-week-long religious celebration began April 24th, with proceedings set to take their glorious bow on Saturday, May 9th. For those not especially privy with the traditions surrounding the Octave, the closing ceremony is generally where the jackpot is for us humble Family fans, as quite a few of our beloved objects of obses - um, affection come together for a processional walk through the streets of the city before participating in a special Mass. While The Grand Duke and Duchess are pretty much a given, as per the (mildly strange and endlessly irritating) usual, not all members of The Grand Ducal Family will be able to make the event - Prince Louis is currently obligated to prior commitments. His wife, Princess Tessy, however, is a likely candidate for attendance, and my fingers are crossed just as tightly as anyone's that we'll also be blessed (I love convenient terminology) with a sight-or-two of The Hereditary Grand Duke, Prince Félix, Princess Alexandra......oh, and Prince Sébastien being.....uh..... Well, you get the point. Naturally, your favorite blog - ha, it's my favorite, too... we're twins! - will provide timely coverage of the event when that loverly time comes. Until then....
