Axial tilt is the reason for the season  
The sun is about to return; let us rejoice! Many years ago, some of those who celebrate the occasion falsely accused my ancestors of waging a War on Solstice when all we wanted to do was mind our own business. We kicked their ass, and we celebrate that victory as Hanukkah, but it's long past time for bygones to be bygones, so to those who celebrate Solstice, as well as to those who celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Yule, Newtonmas, and any other holidays I left out, and don't mind if others celebrate theirs, happy holidays.

Thanx to the late Joel Rosenberg for suggesting this line of thought.

Do you mean this Joel Rosenberg? I see no indications of his lateness.

I wondered if you meant Jeff Rosenbaum, whom I hadn't even heard was no longer with us until I looked him up just now. I hadn't seen him since Starwood VII, just before I moved West. *sighh* "To absent friends."

Ah, okay. I've never seen any of his books.
