    The recognition that midwinter festivals pre-date Christianity is starting to become a regular feature on the blogs that I visit. Not all of them are science and religion-bashing blogs, some are just news, UK politics and general commentary type blogs.

    Bah. Humbug even.

    Happy Solstice! Out upon Happy Solstice! What’s Solstice time to you but a time for paying bills without money; a time for finding yourself a year older, but not an hour richer; a time for balancing your books and having every item in ’em through a round dozen of months presented dead against you? If I could work my will every idiot who goes about with ‘Happy Solstice’ on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart.

    With apologies to Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge.

    Truly, it is the most squamous and eldritch of all holiday albums.
