Bring back Saturnalia?


Saturday, I mean to publish a response to a recent Salon.com piece by Jeffrey Tayler disparaging Christmas.

In preparing that, I had to research Saturnalia, the ancient pagan festival that Christmas was meant to replace.

From my reading of the Wikipedia article, there’s a lot to be said for it.

Maybe we should bring it back!
