How’s This for an Obscure Holiday Celebration?

Hail Eris!A little-known holiday falls upon January 5 in the common calendar — I made reference to it a couple of weeks back. This Sunday is, of course, Mungday. The meaning and origins not being readily apparent, I will attempt to offer some explanation. This is not a day to celebrate the mung bean, nor is it a day upon which to remember the hacker tradition of “munging” (though that certainly merits a chuckle). No, Mungday is a day to honor the ancient Chinese sage and Discordian apostle Hung Mung, Patron of the Season of Chaos, inventor of the Sacred Chao, the key to Illumination.

If you haven’t read the Principia Discordia, this won’t make a whole lot of sense to you. Although come to think of it, reading the Principia won’t help much either.
