Huzzah! One of my friends throws an annual Cthulhumas party, at which we sing Cthulhumas carols. It has already taken place this year, but we will definitely be singing this song next year.

Deep rest ye merry cephalopods, may nothing you dismay,
Remember Great Cthulhu will eat you all someday,
For nothing more than simply being, your doom is sealed this way,
With carresses of tentacles and slime, tentacles and slime!
With carresses of tentacles and slime!

I've been trying to figure out how to adapt "Feliz Navidad", but haven't gotten it. Everyone's welcome to try. I had better luck with "The Xmas Song", but it's still not nearly as crisp as your work here.

And a Joyous Cephalopodmas to you as well! I forget - is it a gift giving holiday? Because if it is, someone needs to get you one of these. :D
