380- The Entrance of Mary into the Temple

There is more that occurs during this week of “thanksgiving” that sometimes gets overlooked due to the rush of preparation activities for “Turkey Day.”

Holy Tradition for Tuesday, November 21 is the Feast Day that celebrates when the Virgin Mary’s presentation or entry into the temple came about. She was just 3 years old at the time.
