    Io, Saturnalia!

    May darkness give way to light, and the year be born anew!

    Saturnalia was a week long. Between the 17th and the 23rd. However, because of something to do with the shift from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian one, we would still be witnessing Saturnalia today, or something like that. I dunno... It's a right big mess of bollocks!

    Anyway, Happy Saturnalia! Whenever the hell it is!

    Well, I hope she enjoyed it! I'm rather envious of her.

    You'll know it better by it's newer name...Christmas. When the religion was being spread around, it swallowed up pagan holidays and renamed them, but the celebration times and many of the traditions are the same. Think about all the Christmas stuff that has NOTHING to do with Jesus's birth, and that's what the holiday was REALLY about. Also, Jesus wasn't born in December.
