Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays for Dec 8:

Happy Immaculate Conception, and along with that, happy Tió de Nadal (thanks, Jennifer) and also Happy Bodhi
And for the adventurous, Happy Take It In The Ear day.

For those of you who always get it wrong, the Immaculate Conception refers to the Mary being born without original sin because she would become the mother of Jesus. (Really, it does NOT have anything to do with the virgin birth)

And Bodhi Day is the Buddhist holiday that commemorates the day that the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautauma (Shakyamuni) experienced enlightenment

Celebrate!!
