Moon opens the door, only to find the tavern quiet and empty, except for a slightly bedraggled cat with one eye open. She picks up the cat and a glass of cold cider and sits down by the fire, the cat purring loudly in her lap. "Where is everyone?" she wonders, and waits impatiently for someone to appear.

Noreen's just feeling a little croquettish.

Sage heads over to the coldest doorway in the establishment, pushes it open and plunges her hand into the snow piled up beside the stoop. "Ah! I knew some far-sighted Northwesterner left his cider on the porch to cool!" She carries this over to the bar, leaving the next obvious pun to someone else to drop on the room.

Hmmm. I have a cooler filled with my homemade smoked salmon out in the pickup. I'll bring it in for the celebration, and leave it on the bar. If you WANT to wait until your incremental time celebration to come help yourself, then you can see if any is left. It has been my experience that this stuff is inhaled pretty quickly, so the salmon celebration maybe oughtta happen around Greenwich time.

I am also planning to bring another favorite, sour cream mixed with dry Lipton's onion soup for a dip with Ruffles potato chips. And to offload a few leftovers, there might be a few spritz and krumkaka left over in a cookie tin from Christmas. The elves did such a marvelous job in mending the bar, it seems only suitable to fill it up with food. Here, kitty, let me open that bottle for you.

Barkeep, do you have any sparkling cider back there?

Oh shit. I wake up only to find myself purified. Now that was some magic trick indeed. I look around the bar and the whole place has been purified. It shines so bright, I have to ask Ray Charles if I can borrow his shades.
Even my harmonicas were spit shined.I believe that elf spit has a little magic itself, because I put a harp to my lips and a strange little ditty flows from it.
I'm going to warm up to play 'Auld Lang Syne' when the timing is right, until then, I have to start all over with that good buzz I had going.

And with a gentle sigh of escaped air the inflatable sheep settles down, and is rolled up and packed away into storage for the next opening of the Mudcat Tavern.

The Monkey, dressed in its Sailors Uniform departs, it has an inkling to depart for Hartlepool, it's heard that Monkeys can have a swinging time there.

Throats sore and bleeding the Aberflyhalf RFC depart at a swaggering stagger, thier jollility dampened by the thought of post Xmas training sesions, and hoping against hope that the Scrumage Training machine will not continue to win the ball in thier practice sessions. As they depart through the door leading to thier little valley the croaking strains of "Cosher Bailey" fade into the bible black darkness Have you ever saw, Have you ever saw, Have you ever saw, Such a funny thing before ...

Into the void drifts a tinkling of Morris Bells, as always the Morris Dancers are the last to leave

The drays arrive to collect the empties.

Silence, decorum and sobrity settle over the tavern, like Van der Dekker, it exists in its own niche of unreality, awaiting revival when the festivities commence.

    Sage begins humming softly, almost under her breath, Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream, a song she considered a lullaby from childhood. Stepping carefully toward the main front door, she opens it a crack as a few in the group pick up on the song but then all are lulled into a group power nap. She slides into a comfortable nitch near the coat rack and also drifts to sleep. In through the door creep the Shoemaker's elves, who set quickly to work. They pick up the unconscious duck, cats, monkey, and chameleons on the bar and dust under each then replace them gently. They pull out their little silver hammers and reach into their aprons for hand-cut nails and rapidly repair the bar. Next, feather dusters make a circuit of the room, followed by brooms and dustpans to remove loose bits of debris. The tree is given a good shake to removed loose shakes, needles and bits of wattle and daub from the damaged walls, then the ornaments are repaired and replaced on each branch. The kitchen is also visited, with a heavy influence of green soap and lye as the entire establishment is given a going-over previously unimagined by any of the sleep-drugged human occupants. Indeed, the humans are the final task for the elves, as those in the messiest condition have a little pixie dust thrown their way to straighten their disheveled apparel.

    Knowing that a tip might well be offered by the customers, many now childlike in their sleep, the elves each help themselves to some of MMario's auroch and a roll each of Liz the Squeak's duct tape, left over from her early adventures in the tavern john. They depart merrily into the sweet-smelling night, knowing the revellers (who possess quite a bit of magic of their own) are all set to celebrate the New Year. Mmario and the barkeep begin to rouse first, and turn to tend their meat and drink for the stirring revellers.

I see the whist drivers are back, and trumps are in the air.
(goes over to corner, hangs sou'wester over web-cam)
Chameleons having settled down to a mahogany hue, are now flicking their tongues out in turn, playing at catching bar flies. Morti appears to be the favourite target.
There is a knocking at the front door, then a bunch of hoodeners enter, saying.........
Here comes bludger and his motley crew,
They've come to see what they can screw out of you.
Open your wallet, dig into your pocket,
Then we'll be off, just like a rocket.

There was the most delicious sound in the air... The band in the corner petered out to a gentle harmonic, even Morty looked up from her Baileys, and Liz stopped chomping on the sprout sandwich.....

Suddenly, it felt as if someone had opened a window onto heaven, the air freshened, the sweet pine scent of the tree overpowered the fug of booze, farts and the jello pit.

From far away, there came the sound of an ancient clock, chiming with the sound of silver bells, midnight. The duck, the chameleons and the donkey turn to the east, kneel down, and the air is filled with light from a source no-one can tell.

'Blessings on you all' they say, 'even you with the orange sauce'.

Like the realisation that it's end of term or free drinks at the bar, every face is smiling, serene or beautiful.

Gaudete, Gaudete, Christus est natus, Ex Maria, virgine. Gaudete!

It was time. More than time, in fact. He took out The Trumpet.

This one was midnight blue, with silver -- stars, were they? -- in the bell. This one you couldn't hardly keep in sight; it tended to vanish with vision, like something seen only in the corner of the eye.

He put it to his lips, then put in a mute and blew one crystal clear note. It hung in the air like a star.

No one noticed.

The quiet man put the trumpet away, muttering to himself, "No, it's not time yet. I'll let Gabe do it; it's his job after all."

He looked over the crowd again, and sighed, "They do a lot more good than ill. And this planet needs all the good it can get."

He picked up The Trumpet, pulled the mouthpiece, and put both back into his pack. He drained the Talisker, shook his head indulgently, and with a faint "pop" vanished, leaving in the air only a "Merry Christmas and Peace On Earth" shimmering like thousands of tiny stars.
