Merry Crispness - or Christmas, Hannukah, Winter Solstice, or whatever you may or may not be celebrating.

On December 25th we celebrate Newton’s Birthday because Newton actually was born on December 25th. We call the holiday Crispness because it’s about keeping your mind crisp. And it’s not a coincidence that it’s the same day as Christmas and the Yule holiday where Christmas came from. It is the day that we celebrate the Tree of Knowledge, which represents the sum total of all human understanding. We use the traditional pine tree, which is already a very fractal looking tree to represent the Tree of Knowledge. The tree is decorated with lights and ornaments symbolizing The Sacred Network or the Internet.

On that note, the Church of Reality recently adopted the Flying Spaghetti Monster as its Official Fictional Deity. This seems like a nice marriage and makes it a lot easier for me, as I strongly sympathize with both movements. :)

Happy Holidays everyone.
