Wow. I mean just……wow.
Ok, so Ire and I arrived at our group’s base—called the Mansion—this afternoon.
Er--last afternoon, since it’s 5:30am. I really should describe the Mansion and talk about what happened when I met everyone but……I don’t feel like it right now. I’ll do that after Christmas.
Right now……right now I only want to talk about the Mansion’s Christmas decorations.
I am told Thia was in charge of the decorating. The way she decorated the house can only be described as morbidly festive. The outside of the Mansion is decoration-free, but the inside……. Black candles on the table and fireplace mantel, skulls with red and green lights for eyes, entrails with a string of Christmas lights inside them wrapped around the staircase banister, red internal organs decorating the Christmas tree……
The Christmas tree is essentially a giant stick decorated with various human(?) organs and topped with what I think is a heart. I know it sounds horrible, but somehow Thia managed to make it all look really good.
There’s also skeleton hung from the chandelier with a noose made of Christmas lights, and a wreath attached to a deer skull over every doorframe, but my favorite has to be the complete deer skeleton wearing a jingle bell collar.
Deep down I know I should be grossed-out, but I can’t bring myself to feel anything other than impressed.
It looks like we’ll be having a small feast today. I should try to get some sleep. Merry Christmas everyone.
