You got me there, padre. The roots of undecorate are Latin and not Greek.

Ah, Faldage, my son. We belong to a small and rather exclusive club which knows and appreciates the origin of the English word "barbarism." Ought this be the subject of another thread? Or has it been?

Well, I got Faldage's point, but I'm very much a Marxist on the subject of clubs, and memberbership thereof._________________________

I'd be quite surprised if everyone contributing here was not a de facto member of Padre's club. Now, about our Sanksrit Poetry Club...

Others are simply ... well, rituals.
I celebrate the season in all its permutations and I guess it's because I like to prolong the spirit of Christmas. So all my Christmas spirit will continue through tomorrow... even without the visible reminder of a decorated tree ... and my New Year resolution is to try and keep that spirit all through the year.
Resolutions : now is that a ritual or just silly, given how often they are not kept???
Happy Christmastide to you all.
