Cusp-a point of transition, as from one historical period to the next;
the borders between the twelve astrological signs.
You are considered to be "on the cusp" if you were born
within a day or two of the beginning or end of any sign.

December 6, Saint Nicholas

Nicholas was the bishop of Myra of Lycia (now part of Turkey). he died in the middle of the forth century and particularly since the tenth century, has been honored by the whole Church.

hear our prayers for mercy,
and by the help of Saint Nicholas
keep us safe from all danger,
and guide us on the way of salvation.
From Christian Prayer

Since December 6 is on a Sunday, the liturgy of the Second Sunday of Advent takes precedence over the celebration of the feast of Saint Nicholas.
