Susan P -Exactly! and yes- we get Christmas!! depending on the exact type of Orthodox, Christmas can be at the usual time or later. The Greek Orthodox generally follow a slightly different calendar so that it is often celebrated about a week later than the Roman calendar. (great for getting gifts in that day after Christmas sale!) (I'm actually Melkite, which is extremely similar to Greek Orthodox.)

I was thinking more about this question- and our Priest often deflects personal gifts and encourages gifts for the church. (For example, our church desperately needed new chairs- and has several programs to help people in need- our gifts to the church are usually of that variety.) However if your Monk is not affiliated with your particular church, perhaps he has a group or charity he is involved with? just a thought...
