Christmas is today! Yay!
Wait, it isn't? Oh.
Ahem. Christmas is the time that a load of annoyingly poorly written stories pop up in many fandoms on The Pit, most of which are an excuse to either get two characters kissing under the mistletoe and/or completely rip-roaring drunk, which often leads to other more adult activities, implied or not. That or everyone plays party games, and gets drunk out their minds. This applies whether the series is set in a place or time that would celebrate Christmas or not, as badfic writers don't care to actually research the customs of the country that the series is set in. Seriously, how hard is it to check Wikipedia for information on how Christmas is celebrated, or not, in other countries?
