Cthulhu the red-nosed reindeer

Selections from the H. P. Lovecraft Holiday Songbook, reminding us that Shub-Niggurath is for life, not just for Christmas*. Includes such never-dying (really!) classics as Rudolph the Red Nosed Cultist, Oh Cthulhu, God Rest Ye Scary Great Old Ones, and many, many more!

And for the first time, the full text of Elder God We Fear, to the tune of Camptown Races:
Who’s the Elder God we fear?
Cthulhu, Cthulhu!
Who sleeps on from year to year?
Cthulhu is his name.
Going to pray all night
Going to chant all day
‘Til he rises from the ocean floor
Then we’ll run away!

Can’t remember the Voorish Sign? Lost your last batch of the powder of Ibn Ghazi? Simply break into a rousing chorus of O Come All Ye Deep Ones and you’re guaranteed** safe from any dangerous Old One activity!***

* Substitute the religious holiday of your choice, except if you’re mentioned in Unaussprechlichen Kulten, when you may choose any three Sacrifice Days instead

** Well, either you are or we’ll all be dead and you won’t be able to sue

*** By which we mean, naturally, that Great Cthulhu will eat you last, which has to be an improvement on your current position
