How true that is.

Tonight being the Solstice, [livejournal.com profile] flos_campi and [livejournal.com profile] hedgies and [livejournal.com profile] my_tallest and I went to the Christmas Revels. While the Quebecois-themed performance this year was not precisely Christmassy (apart from a group-sing of "Les Anges dans nos Campagnes" and the Usual Revels Favorites), it was at least UPBEAT, which is close enough. (In sharp comparison to, say, the somewhat dour Scottish Revels last year.) And it inspired the following sequence of comments:

"Satan. What could be more Christmassy?"

"Frolicking skeletons. What could be more Christmassy?"

"You know, it just isn't Christmas without a Werewolf."

"Truly, it just isn't Christmas without a jousting Werewolf."

"Yeah, it just isn't Christmas without a jousting Werewolf playing baseball." (Yes, this involved a Red Sox pennant.)

"Ah, it just isn't Christmas without Napoleon."

"What says Christmas more than the Gates of Hell?"

"With skeletons?"

And yet, let me remind you -- this was definitely the MOST UPBEAT Revels we'd seen in years. And we were saying that without irony.

So here's to a happy Holidays for all of you. May the Christmas Werewolf bring you all good things. Axe-Murderer Santa says so.
