It’s always been interesting to me how the holy days in the christian calendar overlap with the pagan holidays of old. Before we had Christmas, there was the Germanic Yule — which gave us things like yuletide caroling and the yule log — and the Roman Saturnalia, a rousing ruckus of a time when laws were temporarily suspended and people exchanged gifts, got rip-roaring drunk, and ate — wait for it — fruit cake!
No matter what your holiday you celebrate, remember there is no wine without clean water. A little something to ponder while you drink your Christmas ale.
Here comes the sun!
