Ditto. Staternalea was a pagan holiday that the early church set to rivel via seubrating Christmas on that day and borrowing ideas form it. I belive a Bacchanal is relating to Bacchus (another name for Dyonises or his roman eqivalint). Bacchus means noise, and the OH TO HECK WITH FIGURING IT OUT ILL LOOK IT UP okay i was right. it was eather a place where peple get drunk and party (a place where Bacchus might be seen), or a priest of said Olympian.

So look at the fleeting stars with fleeting eyes, and feel how the earth beneath you gives. It is all a temporary manifestation of particles, and it is all unraveling back to particulate silence. The bustle of the human day will come and will go. And then there will be night. -WtNV

Protect and Survive (YouTube has a channel which has all 20 of the short films on it. I strongly recommend you watch them.)
