*there*. After that first night, the coven and boyos had returned to their home Territories to spend the rest of Winsol with their families and Courts, balancing the celebration of the holiday between politics and the people they cared for. In this, Karla was little different, save that her condition made it easier to say no to the endless whirl of aristo parties. She couldn't avoid all of them (some, like the ball for the Province Queens and another for the first few Circles of Court, the estate even hosted) and some events she attended with more pleasure than duty, but by the eighth evening of the holidays, she was pretty exhausted. The very

*thought*of attending another event with strangers, no matter how well-intentioned, made her want to scream and see if she couldn't wedge herself under the bed in her chambers and not come out until spring.

Fortunately, however, such drastic measures were not necessary. Tonight, at least according to Fandom's calendar, was December 24th. And on years when Winsol and Christmas coincided, she declared that Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were for

*family.*No politics, no stress, no visitors. Just two days alone with her nearest and dearest, both those who lived in Glacia with her and those who could be convinced to visit.

This year, at least, there were several, including Uncle Saetan. Jaenelle and Lucivar were spending the rest of Winsol traveling through the kindred Territories, so Karla had

Rather than anything grand and glorious, they'd decorated a large parlor (with a proper Christmas tree, instead of a Winsol tree, with nearby boxes filled the Christmas ornaments Karla had scavenged over the years, mismatched and gaudy and delightful, for people to hang if they wished), and had a cozy little celebration there. There was a roaring fire in the fireplace (along with chestnuts for roasting!), tureens of hot chocolate and mulled cider and eggnog, platters of food set up buffet style for people to nibble on when they were hungry and ignore when they were not, and a lot of relaxed, good-natured company.

Also, a pile of hideous holiday sweaters for people, if Karla could

Unfortunately, when even Saetan was, he didn't have much recourse.

So he was wearing the least objectionable one he could find.

At least it wasn't reindeer humping.

But while it wasn't Christmas back on Nagoya, he did have all the time in the world-- so he decided to stop by, if only for a couple of hours.He wasn't wearing one of the ugly sweaters.

Yeul was not wearing a sweater, since it had not even occurred to her to do so, though talking her into one would be rather easy, should there be any to spare. Caius, on the other hand, was not wearing a sweater and had zero inclinations to change that, even as he realized a number of people were wearing them.

"This looks pleasant," Yeul commented lightly to Caius.

"Yes," he agreed, smiling slightly. "I expect you shall have a good time."

It really didn't matter that Yeul had only half an idea of what they were celebrating and Caius had none.

Resisting,Karla. Because... nope. Being a guy with feathery wings meant that he had a sort of weird relationship with angels, especially since so many other versions of him used that as a codename.It made him a bit squirmy.

On the other hand, he wasn't resisting wearing a Santa hat, which was going to be his one concession to the holiday. For one, it didn't involve scratchy wool causing weird static buildups around his wings, which was totally his excuse for not wearing that sweater, there.

Yet.

It was... beautiful in an odd sort of way, she supposed, but she had no idea why someone would tie things to a tree like that. She nibbled on some of the food she'd liberated from the tables and watched others put more things on the trees.

## Cookie Decoration!

## Elsewhere in the room

There was a piano in the room, and as it was in a bit of a corner, it was quieter back there, too. So when he wanted a break from the active socializing, Hannibal headed back to the instrument.

There might be a few Christmas pieces sprinkled in with the rest of the music - Classical, modern, a few of his own pieces - that he was playing, but mostly he was enjoying the break and people-watching.
