No. it is clearly not an anagram of St Valentine. St Trifon is the patron saint of wine growers and is celebrated today in, among other places, Bulgaria. Special ceremonies are enacted in the vineyards, the vines are pruned, and later much wine is consumed. Sounds just like any other day at work for me.
The day has been quite pleasant. Slight creaming accident in the kitchen tonight as I prepared a special St Valentine meal – I shook the tub for a second time having forgotten I had unsealed the lid. I blame St Trifon Zarazan.
We spoke at work today of how in time the organisation will run like clockwork. I suggested that clockwork mice might be a better analogy – running around in circles and/or bumping into the skirting board. It’s that St Trifon again.
