First, we at Tempest in a Teardrop wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

Second, Glyph wrote us this beautiful Christmas carol, and so we thought we’d share. Codex says it feels a bit… self-aggrandizing, but I pointed out that we are shameless cartoonists and this is just the sort of thing we should be doing. Then I waited until she was out of the house to post it.

You know the tune, I’m not writing this in singing order. I’ll just include the last verse. Enjoy!

The Twelve Days of TiaT

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
Twelve readers laughing,
Eleven Torlings trolling,
Ten Ilk a-dreading,
Nine new subscribers,
Eight frames aligning,
Seven CHORFs a-shrieking,
Six no awardings,
Five Dew-berr-ies!
Four puppies saddened,
Three puppets,
Two hapless interns,
and a rad fem potato, Terri!
