Daedylus (I may not be spelling that right.) was a man from a Greek myth who made some wings out of feathers for himself and his son, Icarus (again I may not be spelling that right). Icarus flew too close to the son, causing the wax that held his wings together to melt, and he fell to his death.

I referred to Mcar as Daedylus because he said he was flying. :)

Was that Aechylus too? (might not spelled it right, I think)
But still, few more hours in our place and it's really a serious bye-bye to this year. I'll be the first of course to see the 1st midnight of 2009, so I win :) . Happy happy new year to all!

I thought Midnight Mass was strictly a Christmas thing?

Yeah, I see that, but I still though Midnight Mass was only celebrated on Christmas. Or is that strictly a US/western (maybe even Catholic) thing?

What a similar thing here when it comes to midnight masses. Usually most of the mass here is celebrated very early specially during Christmas season like what DavidGeorge said, 3-4am or 4-5am.

I'm going back to my work again today. I have so many things to make up definitely.
