After two days of filling up my stomach with delicious Christmas food, it’s now time for another weekly, for Wednesday has arrived. I made the hard decision to go back to Leiden, where unfortunately I’m currently home alone, except for our cat. But as we all know, you can’t make cats be social, they socialize only when they want to. And currently, he is too busy sleeping. In order to keep myself occupied, I’ll write another entry!
1. The ‘moving star’ that guided the three wise men was probably a comet; Halley’s comet. Halley’s comet is a comet which is easily visible when it travels past earth, every 75-76 years. There’ve been recordings found of the comet’s apparition since 240 BC. A lot of mythical powers/events have been attributed to the comet, Christ’s coming could have been one of those. Hypothetically, if the nativity story is real, Halley’s comet would have been the one. It arrived at 12 BC. But Felix, that is 12 years before Jesus...
Howdy! Time for another weekly! Let me start this one out with two quick apologies: 1) for not posting any reviews lately, I’ve been really busy with studying but I do have some reviews in the works which need just a little more punch to it, and 2) for stepping on my cat yesterday. Sorry Dick (yes, he’s called Dick), but you have to know that if you are lying on the floor of a dark room, nobody is going to see your black fur. Shit like that can happen.
Welcome to another edition of Wednesday’s Weekly where I will get you up to speed with everything Felix-related, whether it’s the blog or me. Last week’s weekly was a bit short, as I ran out of time – that is, I didn’t want to be a Debbie downer writing the blog while the whole family was downstairs celebrating Sinterklaas. Today, however, I have not got a finite amount of time on my hands to be able to bring you the last scoops.
