Caturday's Astrophenia | A Merry Scary Newtonmas 2016



Happy Winter Solstice Holiday, whatever you call it, wherever and however you celebrate it!

I personally celebrate it as Newtonmas, for on 1642, December 25th, was born Isaac Newton, that famously cranky but brilliant guy who gave us calculus, the first working theory of gravity, and the laws of motion still used today to launch spacecraft into orbit and beyond! He helped launch the modern scientific revolution and changed the world before he was 30 years of age!

So, here's a collection of Lovecraftian carols for your amusement this holiday eve, and may you have a very merry holiday! Do keep warm or cool, depending on your latitudinal hemisphere of residence!

A big tip of the hat to Anneliese and Ray for forwarding this! Enjoy!
