Happy Saturnalia!

Hope you all have a festive 'almalgamation of various pagan ritual observances occuring around the Winter Solstice and co-opted by Christianity for public relations purposes' holiday!


  1. You know, that's absolutely true. Shepherds wouldn't have been "out in the fields" in a Bethlehem freezing cold winter. Many believe that the date was picked to coincide with existing winter festivals of the time.
    Thankfully, the actual date doesn't matter!

    If you celebrated Saturnalia....all I can say is I hope you got as much from that as I, and so many others, got from celebrating the birth of Christ, no matter WHEN it was :-)
    Happy New Year! z

  2. Agreed on the Shepards!

    I did indeed have a good Christmas...and a Happy New Year! TY!
