    Yeah. It's really cute. Once he retires maybe @rah will have time to dress him up for other holidays.

    Nothing for the security guards that have to work just about every holiday?

    Everyone knows security guards are just NPCs.

    Yeah, shout-out to them too - shout-out to everyone who has to work on Christmas. But what I mostly had in mind was being subjected to a constant blast of Christmas commercialization for months, which isn't necessarily the case with security guards. It is most definitely the case with retail workers.

    We do the same, just on New Year instead of Christmas. With the similar attributes, Christmas Tree (New Year's Fir), Santa Claus (Father Frost, comes with Snow Maiden).
    Orthodox Christmas is in January 7, not celebrated much except by religious people. December 25-th is a usual working day.

    It sucks that some people have to work on holidays. It's a different kind of suck when people are forced to for commercial and not practical/societal reasons. I'd put security guards in the same category as doctors and gas station clerks when it comes to them having to work on holidays. It's sucks but it's unavoidable.

    Don't forget to post in Site Feedback to remind the admins to switch the smileys over to the Christmas versions.
