Io Saturnalia !

Once more the festive season of Saturnalia is upon us and whilst I won't be slaughtering any animals (either in the arena or on an altar) I will of course be upholding the great Saturnalia traditions of feasting, goodwill, generosity to the poor (my kids and grandchildren), the exchange of gifts and the decoration of trees - for these all occurred too during this festival, along with similar traditions in Mithraism and the Winter Solstice traditions of many other pagan  festivities.

So however you celebrate (if indeed you do), I hope you have a good holiday.
