So, once again it’s Valentine’s Day, the consumption-based holiday that “enjoys” the most ambivalence from the American people. I’m not a big fan of it myself, but thinking outside the box of chocolates does make this day of enforced trappings of romance more palatable. Case in point – here’s 48 examples of better gifts for couples than candy and flowers. 😉
So, once again we have the opportunity to celebrate what is left of Saturnalia. By that I, of course, mean the Victorian affectation of Boxing Day, which is the last vestige of Rome’s mid-Winter festival. 😉
Thanksgiving is passed, as is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So, you can decorate without bad luck or opprobrium from right-thinking people. Of course, the nature of that decorating is in flux. 😛
Halloween is coming and those witches are getting ready to ride the night. 😉 That sounds like a fine thing to me.
But, as fond as I am of witches, it’s better that there a plethora of a spooky babes to choose from on any given Halloween.
