Since I likely won't be on the forum for a few days, I'd like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas- even if you don't celebrate, you can still have a merry day- and a happy, healthy, peaceful, productive and prosperous New Year.

And the very same to you John, and to everyone one else here on the Forum, and to all those who help to run and moderate it.... and to THE BIG KAHUNA.  I also will be travelling to visit my Grandson for Christmas.  Please, may everyone stay healthy and well.

 

A  VERY  MERRY  CHRISTMAS  AND  THE  HAPPIEST  OF  NEW  YEARS  TO  ALL.

I celebrate them all. In addition, I'm in favor of including Saturnalia.

 

Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival in honour of the deity Saturn held on December 17 of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through December 23. The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn in the Roman Forum and a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere that overturned Roman social normsgambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves.[1] The poet Catullus called it "the best of days."[2]

 

The popularity of Saturnalia continued into the 3rd and 4th centuries AD, and as the Roman Empire came under Christian rule, some of its customs may have influenced the seasonal celebrations surrounding Christmas and the New Year.[7]

New to this forum but I also want to wish everybody Merry Christmas and health and happiness in the New Year. By the way, the world didn't end today. Must have been a bad Mayan joke.

May everyone have safe travels throughout the holidays and cherish their families and loved ones and extend a prayer for those not able to do the same this year and see you all back at the workbench in the coming year.

On my way to work, Friday morning, I encountered the most beautiful rainbow I've ever seen. I'm thinking now that we got it wrong, it was the 'Mayan Rapture', as my evening commute was especially light. :wacko:
