Christmas

Long before Christianity evolved, people celebrated the winter solstice as the end of the dark times and the coming of light. Roman Christianity moved the day on which it commemorates the birth of Jesus to the winter solstice. It replaced a holiday of older religions. The deeper meaning stayed.

See, I was right to celebrate all along. :hap:

I went to work at dawn this morning, the sun was struggling over the horizon at 06.30; still dark but hey. Drove home at 16.30 without headlights on, is it over? :ooer:

It doesn't necessarily work that way. Weather doesn't obey dates.

It's pretty mild at the moment for the time of year, but around about this time last year there was 'The Beast From The East'.
