Holiday Textfiles

These are textfiles that are attached to certain holidays. It's kind of

annoying to see files about subjects that don't represent year-round

types of subjects, so they're all lumped in here. The majority of the

files here are currently Christmas files.

An exception is the <A HREF="/occult"><B>Occult</B></A> section, which

is loaded with Halloween stuff but it doesn't seem as clear to split the

specific holiday stuff from and put here.

Interestingly enough, the most popular files are parodies of the

time-honored poem "A visit from Saint Nicholas". Something about that

particular poem (the idea that Santa's breaking into the house, the

glimpse you get of him before he cuts out of town) inspires generations

of geeks and self-styled humorists to make new, alternate versions.
