Merry Saturnalia!!!

Saturnas Caravaggio
Our Saturnalia tree is bedecked, beribboned, and gaily festooned with sun and star symbols in honor of this day. (Next, year, I have every intention of throwing a Merry Saturnalia Bowling Toga Party in honor of the Roman god, Saturn, but as one of my nearest and dearest friends is newly pregnant and spewing her guts out most of the day, I think we'll wait until she can join in without the threat of unexpected vomit. ;))

Spawn has been duly crowned the tiny Lord of Misrule for the season and Fat Nugga, crowned Lady of Misrule. Saturn help us all. ;) 

We haven't taken pictures of our tree yet because it won't be finished until the evening before the third feast day. (We celebrate Saturnalia, Yule, and Christmas...because 3 holidays are better than 1! =D) On Christmas Eve, Santa will send out PJ the Elf, his location scout, to get the lay of the land, and deliver pajamas to all the good girls and boys for them to sleep in after they get home from their big family dinner. When the coast is clear and everyone's tucked in for the night, Santa will arrive to deliver gifts, stuff stockings, put the star on top of the tree and, unbeknownst to Spawn, he'll also be setting up Spawn's Polar Express O-Guage Train Set that Poppy gave him last Christmas. =D I think I'm more excited than Spawn! =D 

I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures to share. In the mean time, have fun making merry and please chime in below in the comments to share your family's holiday plans and traditions!
