As an atheist, I don't do Christmas. Which means I don't go to church and sing carols. But that doesn't mean I'm not celebrating. The winter solstice is an excellent excuse to get together with friends* and indulge in food and wine - both sparkling and mulled. Throw in a few presents and some games and we're celebrating Yule, the traditional winter festival of northern Europeans. So, while the Other Half and I enjoy ourselves, I hope all my regular and occasional readers enjoy this holiday season.
* No, I haven't forgotten family - I'll be joining them at the beginning of the year.
