A Vasekhe Christmas Carol-- 01

Saturnalia, if you don't know, was the ancient Roman version of Christmas, and is actually the source of Christmas presents and the Celtic "Birth of the Sun" which later was Christianized into "Birth of the Son [of God]", which evolved into Christmas.

Fun Fact: Though celebrated in December, Jesus' birthday would have actually been in mid-April, near modern Easter (I wonder if crucifixion and defiance of death were popular birthday presents back then).
