On the Seventh Night of Saturnalia…

Today is the last night of the “official” seven nights of Saturnalia, and is known as Sigillaria.

I wasn’t sure, but it turns out there will be some “gifts” involved in this date for me. I have generally not given gifts to friends or family on this date for many years, but it was nice last year to give some books and things to my co-religionists. That isn’t happening this year…oh well.

I have to get myself ready to go and see my dad and most of that part of the family, so this will be brief…on to the hymn!
