'''Decemberween''' (also called [[what I want|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 [[Wikipedia:Christmas|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 and hams, the traditional meal is bunnies, much to [[Marzipan]]'s chagrin. The origins of the holiday are complicated, involving at least one Angel, two [[Kobe|Kobe Bryants]], the [[Wikipedia:Santa Claus|Santa Claus]]-like [[Dr. Christmas]], a sailor named [[Archibald]], and [[The King of Town (Decemberween)|The King of Town]]. 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 [[Decemberween in July|July]], time permitting. There were no Decemberween cartoons in 2003, 2005, or 2009.

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 and hams, 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, a sailor named Archibald, and The King of Town. 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. In the Old-Timey days, Decemberween is described as "the most sanitary time of year", and was celebrated by piling up all the dead rats one has accumulated over the year. Strong Sad is often trapped in the bathtub during Decemberween so he won't be able to enjoy the holiday with his brothers and The Cheat. Decemberween can also be celebrated in July, time permitting. There were no Decemberween cartoons in 2003, 2005, or 2009, nor, due to Homestar Runner being on hiatus, from 2011 to 2016 or in 2018 or 2019.
