Went to see "The Good Shepherd" today. Not at all what I thought it was going to be, but I really enjoyed it. Angelina was gorgeous, as usual, even though there was not nearly enough of her. I didn't leave the theater saying "wow!" or "let's discuss the deeper meaning of the movie" but I would recommend it if you're in the mood for a bit of a history lesson made fun :)
As for the title of this post, do you know about Mithras? Mithras was born of a virgin on the 25th of December. His worship involved baptism, the partaking of bread marked with a cross and wine as sacrificial blood. Sundays were sacred. And all of this dates as far back as 1400 BC.
Here are a couple links about Mithraism:Mithras & MithraismTemple of Mithras
Anywho, history lesson is over. Enjoy your festivus, whatever brand it may be!
P.S. ( Something for your amusement )
