These are just the scouts. Given that squirrels have long been a running theme here at the Spew for any distraction, let me be clear--this is not a distraction. The war is coming! If you don't hear from me in the new year, you can guess that my family and I succumbed to the Squirrel Menace. Save yourselves!
Oh, and enjoy your winterfest, whatever form/flavor it takes!
