The Original Meaning


The scribes have confirmed this joyous occasion. The days are no longer getting shorter. The Earth will indeed be reborn and not slip into that dark night.

Wishing everyone a solemn Alban Arthan as we honor the souls of the trees we sacrifice then deify in our living rooms. Hang the revered kerm-oak, drink the blessed wassail. "Yule" feel so much better. The Norse had the right idea taking 12 days for Jole.

Oh and for all you recent religion adoptees a translation: Christmas, Christmas Trees, holly, sacramental wine and the 12 days of Christmas.

Changing the name makes little difference; Merry Christmas.


Al Gore has a special message for you.

Merry Christmas Rob Dawg.

Here's a present, I think it's your kind of website.

Come on. Sears, Macy's and Coca Cola invented most of our Christmas traditions.

Rob Dawg said...

No, they co-opted ancient traditions. I see a bit of a return to the olde values.

Mine is made of plastic and metal and the lights are pre-wired. Walmart had it on sale. It's the finest in Chinese technology.

One other thing: Al Gore is full of shit and promotes the global warming scam because it makes him millions of dollars each year.

Happy Boxing Day!

Nope, never read it. I do like this quote however:

"The danger, however, is not less real because it is imaginary; imagination acts upon man as really as does gravitation, and may kill him as certainly as a dose of prussic acid."

Did Casey meet his "millionaire by christmas" goal?

Casey probably met his "millionaire by Christmas" goal, the only problem being a minus sign in front of the million.

And Happy Holidays all!
