Io Saturnalia!

We don’t celebrate Christmas exactly, but we do celebrate the Winter Solstice, Yule and Saturnalia which in our family all get rolled into one big long week of parties and debauchery! We have only just got started and this is the first time I have been able to enjoy some of the more debauched elements. I might write more about it next week, depending how much I can remember… But so far I can tell you it is fun! Who wouldn’t want to live in a Satanic family!

Anyway, to all my readers, whatever you celebrate at this time of year, best wishes, have fun and be naughty!

From Wikipedia… [Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival in honour of deity Saturn, held on 17 December of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through to 23 December. 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 norms: gambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves. The poet Catullus called it “the best of days”. ] See more at Wikipedia .

    Nice to see our daughter following in the family tradition. Actually we are having a bit of a generational battle with Sophie and I trying to out party our offspring, we have some points to prove!
    To all our readers and followers who are celebrating at this time of the year we wish you all the best you could ask of the season and happy celebrations, whichever form they take.
