    This years Holiday Greeting .

    Happy Holidays!

    Interesting tidbit;
    Wiki: Yule;
    Yule or Yuletide ("Yule time") was and is a festival observed by the historical Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the celebration to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht. It later underwent Christianized reformulation resulting in the term Christmastide.

    Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule are used in the Nordic countries for Christmas with its religious rites, but also for the holidays of this season. Today Yule is also used to a lesser extent in the English-speaking world as a synonym for Christmas. Present day Christmas customs and traditions such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar (Christmas Ham), Yule singing (Caroling), and others stem from pagan Yule. Today the event is celebrated in Heathenry and some other forms of Modern Paganism.
    Yule was originally celebrated on 21DEC., to welcome the coming of Spring.
    Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science. -C. Darwin

    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!
