Today, December 25, marks the dies natalis (anniversary) of the dedication of the temple of Sol Invictus, the Unconquered Sun, in Rome in 274 CE by the Emperor Aurelian. Sol Invictus was regarded as a special patron of Roman soldiers and of the Emperor, possibly because of his importance in the cult of Mithras.

@Alec Burl Ives? Once had a live LP of his, singing Mr Froggie etc, many years ago.
@Twilightcapers I had a Burl Ives LP as well. I can't remember what the cover looked like.
Expecting a visit from Satan Claws?
