    So, not sure how many of you remember but for several years, I've done a "Caroling with the Dark Fathers" in Doom sometime during the Christmas season. I don't remember if I did it last year but it was a Catskills tradition for a few years running. Basically, I provide enough gold skulls for anyone who wants to, to go (usually I can come up with 5 - 10 skulls). On the appointed night, we group up at Yew Gate in Tram and party and head to Doom and run the guantlet. Now, the catch is, you MUST "sing" Christmas Carols while fighting (or dying or between or whenever). In the past, we've also taken along spare Christmas deco and "Decked the Halls". Hey, Dark Fathers deserve some Christmas Cheer too!

    So, my question is, is there any interest in this this year? With my work and travel schedule, it would probably have to be on a Friday night. If there's enough interest, I can look at trying to put something together either the 14th or 21st. What do ya'll think?

    Absolutely! However, considering this thread has had 32 views and a whopping zero signs of interest, you might be a tad lonely. :p

    Cats has a few people who might be interested in such an endeavor but I don't think many of them are Stratics posters.

    I would be willing to show up and tank everything for everyone. I am bad with planning though so you would have to icq me on that day to remind me =)
    375-739-774 if you get more interest.

    And yes it seems the forums went inactive for so long people stopped checking them as frequent =( .

    A very cool idea I would def do this! I also currently have 10 golden skulls if you need more I will gladly donate them for the event...
    Would this be an allday event or just for a few hours?

    I completely missed this one. I envisioned people singing in Mumble (Mumble > TS) or playing Frank Sinatra singing carols while telling Doom mobs what the five fingers say to the face. Mass fighting while listening to Christmas music, very Tarantino.
