We've all had people new to the Fediverse who followed us before posting anything.

If you're like me, you just ignored them and didn't follow back.

This Saturnalia / Holiday season, why not give the Fediverse a gift and look over their profiles again? If they've posted some interesting stuff since they joined, consider following them back! After all, they once thought you were interesting enough to follow...

The best of days to you all and please boost in the spirit of Saturnalia! 🎉🎈👯‍♀️🎊👗

Full respect to all of you out their with your own spiritual and religious beliefs and the desire to follow your culture's predominant religious celebrations.

I however, look forward to the sacrifice (sacrificing work for the day!), sigillaria (privately giving self made gifts), "continual partying", "carnival like atmosphere", overturning social norms and "time of liberty".

Regardless of your beliefs, may this December 17 be "The best of days" to you all!

Party on and Happy !

:

A festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, primarily on December 25. A religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. Central to the Christian liturgical year, Christmas Day is celebrated religiously by a majority of Christians, as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and forms an integral part of the holiday season centered around it.

Have a feast because someone was born and lots of other people are doing it. Ok, but... meh.

:

Saturnalia was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn and a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere that overturned social norms: gambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves as it was seen as a time of liberty for both slaves and freedmen alike.

The poet Catullus called it "the best of days".

Give something up. Party. Ditch social norms. Give self made gifts. Good times.

This year, I've decided to celebrate instead of , based purely on their entries.

Why?

Well, let's take a look:

Wait I thought #Invidious was more of a dailymotion/vimeo type deal why didn't anyone tell me it was an open-source alternative YT frontend

This is rad as fuck. There are even .onion instances - more than a couple! This will definitely make deleting google easier

It bums me out when I see project leaders applying "stop energy" towards other projects in the fediverse space by taking potshots at them when energy to develop and get far enough on the fediverse is so scarce. We do better by supporting each other and engaging in dialogue.

(Applying stop energy to bigoted materials is another matter and not what I'm talking about.)

remember when spyware was considered something bad and not just the normal way software operated

I'm looking for a that is:

*
* Compatible with
* Doesn't send private data to third parties
* Doesn't require an account with a third party

Sadly fails, both by forcing the use of an identifying account and then sending data to third parties (read the privacy policy).

Is there a friendly alternative though? The only thing I've found is Susi.ai but I haven't looked into its privacy policy yet. It's FOSS though.

My son’s teacher has banned me from decorating my son’s bananas as they were causing too much of a ruckus in class & honestly... knowing my art caused a class of 6yos to riot is probably one of the best compliments I’ve ever recieved. I wish I took more photos before the ban.
