Lord of Misrule

“The Lord of Misrule – December 17th. This is the first day of the Roman festival Saturnalia.  It was a period of great
feasting and festivity, with a lot of drinking and eating.  Slaves would become masters for the festival, and everything
was turned upside down. This part of the Roman festival survived into the 17th Century.
