I   like  January too! So relaxing after the hustle and bustle of December. And... ice climbing! And...Chuck's birthday!

See?  Celebrate my birthday!  ;D

And we know you also like the long dark nights of winter.

You're weird, but we love you. Sweetie!  :-*  :-*  :-*

Jeff, after all this time away, you've made me break out the mariconera!

Jeff>>><<<Chuck

Aw, thank you, friend. I also like being weird.

Here is a poem about the dark.

To Know the Dark by Wendell Berry

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.


oh, I like that.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Only here, it happens after the 6th January which is a holiday here.

:o  Let's just hope Jan. 6 never becomes a holiday here.

(I assume others will understand my specific implication, and you may, too. But let me know if it doesn't pass the Sonja test.)

Something sure got "manifested" that day.  :(

Oh that's right. The day those idiots tried to bring down democracy  >:(

Well, I'm happy to say that's not the reason it's a holiday here. I'm not quite sure why it's a holiday, but as long as I get a day off work I don't care!  ;D (it's called the thirteenth day of xmas, but I have no idea why that is cause for celebration).

The night before is Twelfth Night (as in the Shakespeare play), once a time of great revelry that closed out the Christmas season.

The calendar of the Episcopal Church still gives it the tedious name The Epiphany, or the Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles.

Hello Sonja, just following up on Paul's and Jeff's posts.   January 6th is called different names.  Some call it The Epiphany, some call it Three Kings Day, and others call it "Little Christmas".  It is the day that the Magi arrived at the Nativity, and presented Jesus with gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.

This day is considered the end of the Christmas season. 

I've talked with people who misunderstand the timing of the season, specifically the song "The 12 Days of Christmas".  They think the 12th day of Christmas is Dec 25th, and the gift giving in the song starts on Dec 13th.
