It's that time of year again, when we once more celebrate the midwinter equinox and attach various festivals to it, whether it be the Pagan festival of Yule, the birth of Mithras (25th December), Bacchus and Saturnalia and others. The 25th Decenber was probably also adopted by the Christian faith as the date for the Birth of Christ and hence Christmas! (Yay)
Whatever your beliefs, enjoy the holiday season doing whatever it is you do to celebrate or relax relax etc.
I'll be back next week with another post 'padding out' the rest of the year as I'm more or less banned from painting, building models and most everything else hobby-related. It turns out that I have to enjoy the break !
So from me, to all the visitors to my blog, whether you're a regular, occasional or new:
Io Saturnalia ! Dress up, drink to excess and exchange gifts as the Romans did.
or Celebrate Mithras , slaughter a Bull and drinks its blood
Just do whatever you do !
(or just have a Merry Xmas as I intend to do !)
Hope you have a great celebration Joe, and enjoy the relaxing ! It will soon be over and then back to modelling ! LOLReplyDelete
