"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.
