Good point!

Still it's hard to enjoy anything during December with all that christmas markets, shopping crowds, and all of the work that is to be done before the Christmas break.

Although I chose the 'New Year' option, I start to wonder - with those 'pagan' options possible: when does the new year begin? The calendar clearly says 1st January. Christians begin their year on the first advent Sunday, pagan rites said to do so in the night of Halloween. What other dates of 'New Year' are there around the world? if anyone can tell some more ...

    Actually, New Year in Western countries was orginally a non-Judeo/Christian holiday anyway (as with almost all holidays people label "Christian").

[Corion]: Hmmm - and now that I look at it, the gallery I'm using doesn't produce non-Javascript compatible links in the sense that hotlinking to an image will only work for Javascript enabled...
