Fifty-five days after Halloween

Decemberween (also called X-berween and D'Ween) is a holiday celebrated by the people of Free Country, USA 55 days after Halloween, on December 25. It bears many similarities to Christmas, with colorful lights, garlands, and the giving of presents, but also has some obvious differences. Though Christmas carols have made appearances ("O Holy Night" in A Holiday Greeting, "O Christmas Tree" in The Best Decemberween Ever and "Jingle Bells" in Decemberween Sweet Cuppin' Cakes), their correct words are never sung and only the tune is used. Decemberween food has some unique variations on more recognizable cuisine. Instead of turkeys, the traditional meal is bunnies, much to Marzipan's chagrin. The origins of the holiday are complicated, involving at least one Angel, two Kobe Bryants, the Santa Claus-like Dr. Christmas, and a sailor named Archibald. Although the holiday's origins are explained in the pageant in A Decemberween Pageant, only glimpses of it are seen in the toon, leaving most of the story a mystery. Decemberween can also be celebrated in July, time permitting. There were no Decemberween cartoons in 2003 or 2005.
