Inevitable around here,isn`t it?
I`ll provide the first,created through a conversation about Gogglemas and how you can`t have a holiday without songs.

(To Jolly old Saint Nick)-Written by me Dar

Soon it will be Gogglemas,
And all steampunks know,
The Kraken will be sinking down,
Through the blustery snow

Presents it will drop on us,
From tentacles aglow,
With joy,and slime,and happiness,
Packages with bows

Old St.Kraken loves us all,
On this special day,
So it showers us with gifts,
Tomorrow it will slay

Shoggoth wants a dremel tool,
Or some brass to buff
Insanity,her magesty,the king
just wants some stuff

As for me my gift will be,
What the Kraken thinks is right
May all the bells on all the ships
Ring out this Gogglemas night

I do believe that Penny Arcade did a series of Christmas comic strips a few years ago that feature Cthulhu in the place of Santa Claus. Destruction and death ensued.

This one works when I sing it in my head at least.

Music: Jinglebells
Lyrics: vonB

Dashing through the sky,
A cuddly beast is fluttering by!
Over Victoria we go,
Sliding all the way! (ho-ho)

Through the clouds we'll go,
And sink some airships down for show
What fun it is to see them descend
In this fine steampunk event

Ooooooohhh...
Gogglemas, gogglemas,
giving all the way!
Oh, by Jove, it's fun to slide,
some presents down your chimney!

Gogglemas, gogglemas,
see that light so bright?
It's the shiny eyes of old St. Krak,
that'll guide my path tonight!

Thank you, thank you! I'll be here all week!

To the tune of "I saw 3 ships"

I saw three Zeppelins come floating by
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
I saw three Zeppelins come floating by
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

And what was in those Zeppelins all three,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day?
And what was in those Zeppelins all three,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning?

King Insantiy and Admirals were there,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
King Insantiy and Admirals were there,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

Pray, wither sailed those Zeppelins all three,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
Pray, wither sailed those Zeppelins all three,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning?

O they flew into Babbage City,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
O they flew into Babbage City,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

And all the Whistles on earth shall hoot,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
And all the whistles on earth shall hoot,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

And all the Kraken in the skies shall call,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
And all the Kraken in the skies shall call,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

And all the Steampunks on earth shall sing,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
And all the Steampunks on earth shall sing,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

Then let us all rejoice again,
On Gogglemas Day, on Gogglemas Day;
Then let us all rejoice again,
On Gogglemas Day in the morning.

Tune: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
Words: Prof. A. Morphous

Now rest you Steampunk airshipmen,
There's nothing in the way
tomorrow there'll be pillaging,
but not on Gogglemas day.
To save us from the Kraken's Grasp,
O, We will rest this day.

    O tidings of boilers and steam, boilers and steam!
    O tidings of boilers and steam, boilers and steam!
   
From the Kraken our old enemy,
Today the gifts will fall
unto certain steampunks,
who have heard the call
That a Steampunk holiday was born,
Merry Gogglemas to all

    O tidings of brass and gears, brass and gears!
    O tidings of brass and gears, brass and gears!


That is as far as I got.

Whereas:    1)  I have not slept in a couple days
                 2) I am in sad need of a Guinness
                 3) Spinning the Brass Kraken should become a Gogglemas Tradition....   Smiley

I don't believe Gogglemas carols are likely to be gender-specific. It would be great to hear you singing some of these! Perhaps it is not too late to record a Gogglemas carol for Dr. Madlove's Aethercast?

Tune: Joy to the World
By B. Fugu

Joy to the Skies!
The Kraken gives!
It's not hungry right now!
Let every crew
Prepare to die
Repeat the sounding doom!
Repeat the sounding doom!
Repeat, Repeat,
The sounding doom!

I am recording these on a Word Document, which I will embellish and distribute.

Why all the references to His Majesty Ms. Insanity?
