A slightly late picture, celebrating the birth of our saviour, Horus son of Isis.

... yes, I'm being snarky. Shush. Anyway, yes, the birth of Horus was celebrated around that time of year, and a couple of friends of mine decided to celebrate Horusmas, if you will, and I thought, "Hey, why not." Which is why it's in the style of an icon. So... yes.

I think it's a beautiful pic. And the title's really funny!
