Io Saturnalia!

Now on eighth day of Saturnalia. The poet Catullus called it “the best of days.” In ancient Rome, private festivities of Saturnalia had expanded to seven days by the late Republic, but during the Imperial period it varied from three to five days. Caligula extended official observances to five.
We do ten days in Roma Nova. 😉
For those who celebrate Christmas, have a good one and I send you the traditional greeting:
