the solstice, maybe?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 25, 2009

The catalogue just arrived from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They're selling some beautiful Christmas cards, featuring different great artists' portrayals of the Madonna and Child. 

Wait! Did I say "Christmas" cards? I beg your pardon. They are of course "holiday" cards. We wouldn't want to risk offending anyone who is celebrating some other late-December holiday by sending out cards that picture the Madonna and Child.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Let's all become Druids. Do they have Frost Time cards?

    Not necessarily. My wife ordered ours from the Met this year and we just received them. The reproduction is of Madonna Standing with the Child and Angels by Quentin Metsys (Dutch, 1466 – 1530) and the legend inside says, "Joyous Christmas." Maybe somebody at the Met fouled up.
