Seasonal traditions...

Plutarch wrote the following about the current season:
    At this time many of the noble youths and of the magistrates run up and down through the city naked, for sport and laughter striking those they meet with shaggy thongs. And many women of rank also purposely get in their way, and like children at school present their hands to be struck, believing that the pregnant will thus be helped in delivery, and the barren to pregnancy.
You don't have to run through the city naked and strike me with your shaggy thong. But if you want to leave a message here for me, anonymous comments are enabled and IP logging is turned off.
