almanac or full moon madness

Though a touch sad that we are always reading yesterday’s news because of the middling hours separating Germany from Canada, I still find Doctor Caligari’s Cabinet to be quite timely and topical, reminding us to anniversaries that don’t loom just as large in our consciousness and importantly, with the invitation to learn more. Below the Twelve Days of Christmas/Kwanzaa gift tally and some other curious and obscure events that took place on this/that date, for the lycanthropically inclined there’s a guide to the year’s upcoming lunar cycles (with clever musical accompaniment), that’s really a nifty primer in reconciling one’s luni-solar calendars.
