Page Title: Decemberween In July Sale!!
 Easter Eggs
- Click on the candy cane to change its color.
- Click on the green light at the top of the screen to view a puppet toon called Homestar vs. Little Girl. The green light is directly above the "w" in "Decemberween".
- Click directly underneath the Puppet Style link to see Seasonal Sweaters.
 Fun Facts
- The back button will always take you back to Main Page 16, which is the snow themed homepage.
- This came about in July 2004 because Mike and Missy were married around Christmastime 2003. The wedding left The Brothers Chaps little time for a proper Decemberween toon, and they actually tried several different ideas out before scrapping all of them and thus going without Decemberween in 2003 (an unfinished version of the Teen Girl Squad short was shown at an appearance at the University of Central Florida in spring 2004). The cornucopia idea came about from the various abandoned concepts.
- You can still click on the other Easter eggs and toons while watching either of the puppet toons.
- This is because the puppet toons themselves are separate Flash files, designed and scripted to appear within the main Flash file.
- You cannot adjust the contrast knob on the Compy 386.
- The reflection of the candy cane on the Compy's screen is wrong. The stripes should be going down from right to left, opposite the direction of the actual candy cane. Otherwise, all individual stripes would end up where they started from.
 Inside References
- The candy cane Easter egg and the Christmas lights are the similar to the ones in the Decemberween Email Menu. The orange-and-blue candy cane having a gray piece is also from the Decemberween Email Menu.
 Real-World References
- The title is a play on stores that have "Christmas in July" sales.
- The release date of this toon (July 12) would later become the official "Decemberween in July" date on the 2010 Calendar.
