And here's a Cthulhu Christmas Carol for all you to enjoy:

God rest ye scary great old ones;
Let everything dismay.
Remember Great Cthulhu
shall rise up from R'lyeh
To kill us all with tentacles
If we should go his way.

CHORUS
O tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe
O tidings of madness and woe!

In Yuggoth an din Aldebraan
The Great Old Ones were spawned
Imprisoned by the Elder Gods
to wait for eons,
Enticing humans to release them,

CHORUS

An arab said: "That is not dead
Which can eternal lie,
And with Strange Eons
even death may die."
The Great Old Ones will rule once more
And all will be destroyed.

CHORUS

I wish I had the mad lyrical skills to write stuff like this, but alas... Check out this website for more Chtulhu madness:

It's not from our great overlords but.......

Here is a special Aquarium song to try out over the festive season to
the tune of "The Twelve days of Christmas"

The Twelve days of Fishmas

On the first day of Fishmas my true love sent to me:
An Octopus Escaping down the drain

On the second day of Fishmas my true love sent to me:
2 Wriggling Wrasse, and
An Octopus Escaping down the drain

On the thire day of Fishmas my true love sent to me:
3 Black Paua
2 Wriggling Wrasse, and
An Octopus Escaping down the drain

and so on ...

12 Crays a Crawling
11 Snails Sneezing
10 Crabs a Creeping
9 Sharks Snapping
8 Eels Oggling
7 Seastars Sliding
6 Cod Cruising
5 Gold Slugs
4 Roaming Rays
3 Black Paua
2 Wriggling Wrasse
And an Octopus Escaping Down the Drain

The staff at the Aquarium in Portobello
wish you a
Very Merry Fishmas!

Merry Christmas, cephalopods! A science song for octopuses, squids, cuttlefish and nautiluses
(not quite worth the effort to extract the words but cute - D)

Published on Dec 8, 2013
Cuttlefish, octopuses, squids and nautiluses are so amazing they deserve a little holiday cheer, don't they? Lucas Miller, the "singing zoologist," turns "O, Tannenbaum/Oh, Christmas Tree" into a rather ridiculous celebration of these amazing ocean creatures. Enjoy!
