Christmas Day – The Chambers Book of Days

Christmas Day – The Chambers Book of Days
December 25, 2010
Share

In the early ages of Christianity, its’ ministers frequently experienced the utmost difficulty in inducing the converts to refrain from indulging in the popular amusements which were so largely participated in by their pagan countrymen. Among others, the revelry and license which characterized the Saturnalia called for special animadversion. But at last, convinced partly of the inefficacy of such denunciations, and partly influenced by the idea that the spread of Christianity might thereby be advanced, the church endeavored to amalgamate, as it were, the old and new religious, and sought, by transferring the heathen ceremonies to the solemnities of the Christian festivals, to make them subservient to the cause of religion and piety. A compromise was thus effected between clergy and laity, though it must be admitted that it proved anything but a harmonious one, as we find a constant, though ineffectual, proscription by the ecclesiastical authorities of the favorite amusements of the people, including among others the sports and revelries at Christmas.

How Did Cleopatra Die?

How Did Cleopatra Die?
July 8, 2010

The latest is that Cleopatra died from a lethal drug cocktail instead of a snakebite. The Pink Flamingo finds this fascinating simply because I am trying to prove that Mattie Blaylock was murdered instead of dying from a drug overdose. It is all about getting historians to look at things differently.

“…According to Christoph Schäfer, a German historian and professor at the University of Trier, the legendary beauty queen was unlikely to have committed suicide by letting an asp — an Egyptian cobra — sink into her flesh.

“There was no cobra in Cleopatra’s death,” Schäfer told Discovery News.
