So, you're wondering what Saturnalia is. Well, there's a link. Have at.
To me, the whole idea of masters and servants switching places reminds me of Twelfth Night and Wassail.
There's a part of me that looks at all these Pagan holidays and says, "Suck it, xians!" but let's be honest here. At the end of the day, who cares? It's a time to spend with your folks and loved ones and share presents and food and warmth and all that happy stuff. It's a little light in the middle of winter and who cares how it started? Just be nice to each other, for Mithras' sake.
