Quick, run out and buy your Johhny Karwan - Three French Hens. Yep, you KNOW you need them, but of course you could get a goat instead. Yep, a better idea. Sorry Johhny.

Now, actually I am doing the wrong thing by mentioning stuff from the twelve days of Christmas, so soon. Yep, but the rules, it should start after Christmas:

The Twelve Days of Christmas and the associated evenings of those twelve days (Twelve-tide), are the festive days from the evening after Christmas Day (December 25) through Epiphany on (January 6). December 26 (St. Stephen's Day) is the first day of Christmas, then December 27 is the second day of Christmas, and so on until January 6 which is the 12th day of Christmas. Christmas Day, December 25, is therefore not one of the twelve days of Christmas. The associated evenings of the twelve days begin on the evening before the specified day. Thus, the first-night is December 25–26, and Twelfth Night is January 5–6. These twelve days of Christmas may have some historical relation to the twelve days of the ancient Babylonian festival of Zagmuk.

I know, when I step on Zagmuk's toes, I'm bound to get burned. I guess I'm taking the Costco approach and starting early. You know, how Costco starts selling Christmas stuff in August? Well, I think I'm well within my rights here. I mean, I waited until December after all.

So, HO HO HO.
