The Lord of Misrule

"The Lord of Misrule - December 17th.  This is the first day of the Roman festival Saturnalia.  It was a period of great
feasting and festivity, with a lot of drinking and eating.  Slaves would become masters for the festival, and everything was turned upside down. This part of the Roman festival survived into the 17th Century.

I need to remember this little fact for next year's advent and declare a topsy-turvy day.


  1. I think that would be a fun idea.

  2. That is an outstanding idea! I think you are on to something for Advent...pulling more history in to the mix is a great idea!! Happy weekend you! Nicole xo
