On Baja, we have somewhat of a family dynamic. We laugh, we cry, everyone knows everyone, sometimes we squabble (especially over presents!) and inevitably someone shows up drunk and embarrasses everyone. But then this wonderful thing happens and we're gathered up from all of our busy corners of Baja to share in drinks, good company, and the holiday spirit. The seasons of yuletide bring peace and joy to our little corner of Britannia. EM Crysania brought folks together at the Skaran Fairegrounds for an evening of scavenger hunts, caroling and last-man-standing. At first, the holiday scavenger hunt got off to a bit of a bumpy start, no thanks to some grinch who took all the clue books. Still, the little Baja-Whos picked up and took the clues from Crysania manually in order to finish the hunt, anyway! Next up was caroling. The singing began with a recitation by Grand Duchess WildStar of Dawn of a historically significant "'Twas the Night Before Christmas", in true Dawn tradition. Next, shy Peter Tarrant timidly approached the stage, but picked up his courage to belt out, "You're a Mean One, Yat-ter-ing!" The Golden Knights shared a rendition of what their EM gave to them, in the "Twelve Days of Christmas". Golden Rings? No, Golden Knights, I said. Navigator came on stage perhaps carrying with her the odor of cookies recently given to the mutant elf, because her song was entitled, "Rudolph the Red-Skinned Mutant". Stratos followed with his rendition of "O Beautiful Star of Bedlam" At one parental-guidance-suggested moment during the Caroling, Fern Goodfellow (who up to this point had been wearing a decidedly demure, not-like-Fern-at-all red robe) dropped her layers to sing a private holiday song just for EM Seppo.... Of course, what holiday EM gathering would be complete without a last-man-standing competition with mobs who escape from their cages and massacre the spectators? Eventually, the spawns were restrained and several impressive feats of survival skills were displayed, including an especially long one by Cebo. A great evening of holiday revelry... Thanks, Crysania!
