๐ŸŒฟ Fun fact: Saturnalia, the ancient Roman festival dedicated to Saturn, was a riotous celebration from December 17 to 23. The festivities included a public sacrifice, banquets, gift-giving, and a carnival-like atmosphere that turned societal norms upside down. Masters served their slaves, gambling was fair game, and a “King of the Saturnalia” presided over the merriment. The exchanged gifts were often playful, like gag gifts or small wax figurines known as sigillaria.
