September 1 is St Symeon the Stylite's Feast Day.
Here is the remains of the actual pillar.
We enjoyed watching an interpretative movie on his life.

We had stacked snacks!
We had a great time together!
So much LAUGHTER!
- Thou soughtest the heights, though parted not from things below;
- thy pillar became a chariot of fire for thee.
- Thou becamest thereby a true companion of the angelic host;
- and together with them, O Saint, thou ceaselessly prayest Christ God for us all.
