Christmas is of course a religious holiday, but it is much more -- it has many ancient pagan winter/solstice ceremonies intertwined in what we know as Christmas (Christmas tree, yule log, wassail, presents, etc.).  The Christmas season corresponds with Chanukkah (Hanukkah), Kwanzaa, the New Year, and the  winter (Northern Hemisphere) solstice.

But for me, I think of all the Santa's helpers -- with few clothes (or none at all--smile)




Yes, I have to include Betty Page (from her Playboy Christmas set)                                  








The helpers have put some wonderful Christmas presents (under the tree?)


And remember, although some of you have already  felt the effects, winter officially begins on the 21st

Have a Merry Christmas -- see you next time
