Dies Natali Invictus*

On having xtian in-laws at Xmas time
You know that when it’s time for them to gather around and pray at their gaudy tree, a symbol of ancient pagan worship of fertility, full of pagan symbols commemorating the sun, before handing out gifts commemorating Odin, Saturn, Mithra and the burning of the Norse Yuletide logs, and they then get stuck on thanking and inviting their imaginary baby Jesus to possess a soul, that really it’s aimed at you.
The family has a project.
Apparently it’s me.

Happy Saturnalia, y’all.
