    Default Sign up for Goblin Calendar for the days Dec 25th to Jan 5th

    According to Greek custom the goblins live in the underworld during the entire year, cutting little by little the tree on which the earth is based. At the Christmas Eve the tree trunk stands up on a piece of wood which is tiny as a strandthread. Just before the moment of the world's destruction the goblins leave the underworld and on Christmas day they walk around on earth, teasing people, stealing food and sweets, messing up the house warehouses, and during the nights, they break into homes to eat the sausages the housewives have prepared. The goblins are a pest during the nights, but there is no use to lock the doors and windows well, only the fireplace should stay lit, because they enter the house through the chimney!

    When sun rises on January 6th, e.g. when Christ was baptised, the Holy Ghost appears and the goblins rush into the underworld to continue cutting the tree. But the tree has recovered during the holy days and they now have to work hard for the new year to cut it off again, till the next Christmas day.

    The 12 days between 25th Dec. to 5th January are called dodecameron (12-day time) and they are days of feast, tricks, fun, tolerance and jokes!

    So, let's prepare a Dodecameron/Goblin Calendar for the 12 days starting on Christmas day! It will be a trickster/joke calendar for Christmas and New Year...

    Please, have in mind that this calendar has 12 only days!

    I'd like to have January 1, which is the birthday of my aunt, cousin, and mother-in-law.

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    Hey, why don't you choose December 25th? To those of us who are trying to learn more about it, I would love to see what you do for that day since you know the most about it.
