Good idea. And coincidentally, it was exactly the argument a friend 
used recently to convince me, after years of studiously ignoring 
Christmas, to  "do something" over these dreaded holidays. So anybody, 
feel free to drop in (especially BB). It will be moderately Dionysian - food, 
wine, a few temple servants (of ill repute), but alas, very few sacrifices.
