(yes, he was born on the night of Christmas eve.)
And, happy Yuletide, merry Christmas, blessed Year End, all that other stuff as well. I do believe it's also the celebration of Helios' birthday as well (although properly, that should be on the solstice, but once upon a time before fixing the calender, December 24-25 was when the solstice landed...)
Anyway, before I start to list all the solar beings and mythic guys who were also born this night, happy holidays to you, each and every one.
May the upcoming new year be a better one than this! And may we who write find writer's block a trivial complaint, and may all of our tales find good completions!
