Christmas tree

Carol of the old ones

So we're sitting here unwrapping presents, and we've got the HP Lovecraft Christmas CD playing in the background ...

which is especially funny because the music is all ever so familiarly Christmassy, but then sometimes you'll hear the lyrics. So we've got "Deck the Halls" playing, and in a moment of silence we here this:

"Watch them kill and disembowel/Fa la la, la la la, la la la!
"Troll a yuletide carol foul/Fa la la la la, la la, la, la!"

Now I've got the soundtrack to Starlight Express on, which I think we all agree is far scarier than The Carol of the Old Ones.

"I am electric/Feel my attraction
"Feel my magnetism/You will agree
"AC/DC it's okay with me
"I can switch and change my frequency."

And if you just want to hear the lyrics, try this one:

This is great. The day is going well. Merry Christmas to you all, and to all a good Yule!
