|Sir Isaac Newton was born on December 25th, 1642. Perhaps we could celebrate this auspicious event instead? We could string up lights, to celebrate Newton's insights into optics, and put up a tree in remembrance of the falling apple that led him to the law of universal gravitation, and exchange gifts to, um, celebrate the gifts of knowledge which Newton bequeathed to all who came after him.|
Yeah, that's it. Happy Newton's Birthday, everyone!
