Once upon a time, Jesus and Mary went to a party. When they got there, Jesus asked Mary if she brought any wine.
"What?" said Mary. "I thought you were bringing the wine."
"No," said Jesus. "I never said I would bring wine."
"I just thought you'd make some out of water or something," said Mary.
"Oh, you just thought, huh?" said Jesus.
And from then on, that day was known as The Assumption of Mary.
We went to the Ethiopian church today to celebrate the Assumption of Mary. The celebration was on a Saturday so that priests from churches as far away as New York could come for the service. Everyone we talked to at the church was super nice, and after the service we had huge amounts of delicious fasting (vegetarian) food. They even served Ethiopian beer. After church we met with our new Amharic tutor. All in all a great day.
