Yes, it's that time of year again. In what's become an Irregular Webcomic! tradition to rival figgy pudding, I offer my annual Christmas carol with a twist.

If you celebrate it, have a safe and happy Christmas. If you don't, I hope you get a laugh out of sending up the occasion. :-)

By the way, if you think the scansion is a bit off, your thinking is just too Euclidean.

2015-03-23 Rerun commentary: Wikipedia presently has a small page for figgy pudding, but it seems disappointingly brief and unlinked from Christmas pudding, so probably ripe for deletion or merging.

I'm not sure where people in a 16th century northern winter would get figs from to make such a pudding, unless they're dried figs.
