|Elves (plus one reindeer) on strike. Look at our angry faces and sign!|
|Okay, we can be nice as well. Something about asking nicely?|
We met up before the party at K's place for an elvish potluck and a sign-making session. I am ridiculously proud of our protest signs. You can click on the pictures above to see the bigger versions, but in case it isn't legible, let me regale you with some of the brilliance that we came up with that night:
"No Work 4 Candy Canes"
"Stop the Sleigh-Driving"
"Santa = the 1%" (plus mandatory #occupynorthpole tag)
"Santa's Workshop = Santa's Sweatshop"
...and much much more. My comrades and I had a grand time making those signs. The fact that we looked like a big ol' family making crafts whilst waiting for Santa and turkey was an unexpected bonus:
|Straight out of a Christmas special TV movie, no?|
We ended the night dancing away to Rasputin and walking back from St-Anthony's singing carols and Disney songs. Not bad for a bunch of striking elves!
