Purpose: Try to keep it undead for 2 months (Nov/Dec) by talking about X'mas.
Eh, Merry (too early) Christmas.

How hamumu stole Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas
All the growtopians were asleep
Except for little garnub who watched the Christmas tree

I hope I get world locks as he jingled his stocking, only to fall asleep within 4 minutes.

A rustle and a cling clang clong.
Hamumu fell down the chimney and stole the tree.

Poor little garnub did nothing but pee.

Now he was broke and had no tree, 'twas a sad and lonely Christmas Eve.
He went to the casino and bid his dirt seed.
'If I win this round il get a new Christmas tree!'

He got nothing.

'Twas the night before Christmas, all were asleep,
Except for garnub who was salty without a tree.
Support couldn't help him,'twas not their problem,
Garnub was sad and hung on the tinsel
Found the next day dead with wolf whistles.

"Myth: “Xmas” is a non-religious name / spelling for “Christmas”.

It turns out, “Xmas” is not a non-religious version of “Christmas”. The “X” is actually indicating the Greek letter “Chi”, which is short for the Greek, meaning “Christ”. So “Xmas” and “Christmas” are equivalent in every way except their lettering.

In fact, although writing guides such as those issued by the New York Times; the BBC; The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style; and Oxford Press discourage the use of Xmas in formal writing, at one time, it was a very popular practice, particularly with religious scribes, who are thought to have started the whole “Xmas” thing in the first place. Indeed, the practice of using the symbol “X” in place of Christ’s name has been going on amongst religious scholars for at least 1000 years.

Eventually, this shorthand trick spread to non-religious writings where nearly everywhere “Christ” appeared in a word, the Greek Chi would replace that part of the word. For example, in the 17th and 18th centuries, there are numerous non-religious documents containing instances of “Xine”, which was a common spelling for someone whose name was Christine."
