Holiday Just In Case

     Internet service at Roseholme Cottage has gone very iffy this Christmas Eve, so I'm posting this (with a timer on it) while I can.

     Merry Christmas to you and yours, or appropriate wishes for whatever midwinterish holiday your family celebrates on or about this day.  Humans have been marking the shortest day of the year since about the time they figured out there was one, and whether by Divine Plan, some careful calendar-nudging and/or chance, quite a few religions have significant dates that fall near it.  Celebrate!  Feast! --And know that the seasons cycle onward, the planet yet spins, and sunlight and warmth will return.  There are a couple of months of heavy slogging to get through, and fortified by this holiday, slog we will.

Merry Christmas to you and Tam.

One has to have spent some time in the northern latitudes to truly appreciate the Winter Solstice.
Those of us with the Viking gene are prone to feasting and celebration.
It keeps us from jumping into the wolf-pit with our drawn sword while screaming ODIN!
Merry to you and Tam.
I hope Huck gets a treat.

Felize Navidad to you and Sister Tam, Bobbi. Pray we come up with the recoures to get out from behind enemy lines. Stay well, and keep the powder dry.
