Merry Christmas!

saturnalia

For those of you who are actually on line today that celebrate Christmas, even if it’s just for the turkey and presents, please have a wonderfully happy, argument-free day with your family and friends.

May your stocking be overflowing!

And because I just can’t help myself, did you know the very first Christmas was celebrated in Rome in A.D. 336? The Roman Saturnalia was for centuries the feast of choice around this time of year, but as Christianity spread across Europe, the Saturnalia fell out of favour and the celebration of the birth of Christ took precedence.

Enjoy!
