    Default Happy Winter Solstice, everyone

    Have a marry Yule (or Jul as we Norwegians still call it) as it was called before the church came and stole it.

    A song that should fit well on this first day of the new year:




    I mean; who could believe sheep having lambs in the winter, anyway..?

    This time always reminds me of the Jethro Tull song - Solstice Bells, what a great tune!

    OID, i was under the impression you were a christian..? No true christian can both belive in the bible as the true word, and at the same time belive Jesus was born in the winter...
    But well, well, i do like celebrating "Christs Mass" anyway, though for me it has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus. But the pagan notions of the evergreen tree, the yule ale, candles, the straw goat, family, unity, solidarity, caring and thankfulness for the last year and hopes for the new are the reasons i celebrate/tolerate "Christs Mass". And the mixing of the christian St. Nicholaus with the pagan fjųsnisse i quite like.

    Jethro Tull; the only band in rock history who've actually made a decent christmas-album.

    Bet prawns cooked on a bbq are delicious if you do them right!,
    All the best sweet bud.
    Wish I was in glorious sunshine right now not depressing grey and cold wet shitty dark winter weather lol


    Edit - although one cool thing about the British weather, or at least when it goes according to plan is the change in seasons(not the dream theater track)
    Winter- cold and snowy
    Spring- everything growing and getting a bit warm
    Summer- pissing it down(but know and again warm)
    Autumn - leaves falling off trees kinda stuff.

    Today is the first day of Winter, in honor of Billy and his memory, as Billy would say, Happy Winter Solstice everyone.
