    And here's a Cthulhu Christmas Carol for all you to enjoy:

    God rest ye scary great old ones;
    Let everything dismay.
    Remember Great Cthulhu
    shall rise up from R'lyeh
    To kill us all with tentacles
    If we should go his way.

    CHORUS
    O tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe
    O tidings of madness and woe!

    In Yuggoth an din Aldebraan
    The Great Old Ones were spawned
    Imprisoned by the Elder Gods
    to wait for eons,
    Enticing humans to release them,

    CHORUS

    An arab said: "That is not dead
    Which can eternal lie,
    And with Strange Eons
    even death may die."
    The Great Old Ones will rule once more
    And all will be destroyed.

    CHORUS

    I wish I had the mad lyrical skills to write stuff like this, but alas... Check out this website for more Chtulhu madness:

    Oops! Been AFK a few days. Just wanted to say, yes, that's the song. Hopefully everyone liked the link. Personally, I wish the guy had left a link for his e-mail addy - would have made an excellent addition to our TONMO Cthulhuists.

    It's not from our great overlords but.......

    Here is a special Aquarium song to try out over the festive season to
    the tune of "The Twelve days of Christmas"

    The Twelve days of Fishmas

    On the first day of Fishmas my true love sent to me:
    An Octopus Escaping down the drain

    On the second day of Fishmas my true love sent to me:
    2 Wriggling Wrasse, and
    An Octopus Escaping down the drain

    On the thire day of Fishmas my true love sent to me:
    3 Black Paua
    2 Wriggling Wrasse, and
    An Octopus Escaping down the drain

    and so on ...

    12 Crays a Crawling
    11 Snails Sneezing
    10 Crabs a Creeping
    9 Sharks Snapping
    8 Eels Oggling
    7 Seastars Sliding
    6 Cod Cruising
    5 Gold Slugs
    4 Roaming Rays
    3 Black Paua
    2 Wriggling Wrasse
    And an Octopus Escaping Down the Drain

    The staff at the Aquarium in Portobello
    wish you a
    Very Merry Fishmas!

    Merry Christmas, cephalopods! A science song for octopuses, squids, cuttlefish and nautiluses
    (not quite worth the effort to extract the words but cute - D)

    Published on Dec 8, 2013
    Cuttlefish, octopuses, squids and nautiluses are so amazing they deserve a little holiday cheer, don't they? Lucas Miller, the "singing zoologist," turns "O, Tannenbaum/Oh, Christmas Tree" into a rather ridiculous celebration of these amazing ocean creatures. Enjoy!
