For those of you who miss Halloween already…
The Necrofeast is a holiday taking place on December 27th from sunset until the following dawn influenced by a potpourri of Native American, European, Arabian, & other "unknown" pagan folklores. While similar to Halloween, El Día de los Muertos & Walpurgisnacht, The Necrofeast's customs include honoring the dead & the undead with ornamentation, benevolence, shenanigans & celebratory masquerading…

It is on this cold night wendigos, ghouls,ghosts & many other things of nocturnal folklore wander among the living in search of human carrion before cemeteries become too frozen for disinterring. But, it being winter, if the ground is too cold, instead of haunting the cemeteries, the undead will find other ways to retrieve their food. Their most common method is to trick lone pedestrians into getting lost therefore leading to certain doom. Another method is to enter houses under the guise of an animal or even a late friend/relative. If this doesn't work, they will also attempt ways to draw folks outside through their nightmares, possession and/or poltergeist activity causing them to flee their homes in terror…

The following customs are…
#1. On December 27th, from dusk until the following sunrise, people must remain within their homes or a friend's abode having all the windows & doors closed with only a few exceptions…

#2. Within your front yard, the closer to your entrance, the better, you must leave an humbled sized empty cauldron, basket, can or any other kind of opened container. And the more embellished with the macabre, the better. Out of mutual respect, the undead will drop an object of best wishes into it which can be a variety of small things like food, toys or pennies. A special note on possible decor: Their favorite containers are opened coffins…

#3. In order to stay safe, for the undead are sneaky as much as they are hungry, you must throw a indoor masquerade until sunrise. The reason being so your friends will keep an eye on you from being possessed, etc. Again, out of mutual respect, the more ghoulish, the better. Besides eating, drinking & dancing, the most important custom would be the sharing of ghost stories through any kind of media as long as they provoke emotional fright & frolic….

#4. With the understanding that not all people or their friends can stay in their homes all night, in order to be safe outside, one must be costumed in the false appearance of a nocturnal creature . The undead have no interest in eating their friends of the animal world. This may include cats, bats, rats, owls, raccoons, possums or anything else. You may also appear as the undead since they much rather have something a bit more "fresh"…

#5. It is very important to know that while you are out & about, in order to trick the undead into believing you are one of them, you must also contribute a small object of best wishes to those who have left out a opened container. Kind of like trick or treating but in reverse. Also, before entering & leaving one's home, you must say, "Knock on wood!!!"

#6. All costumes, gifts & decor may only be thrifted, homemade, recycled, etc. from prior festive embellishments. Think of it as a "grave robber's holiday"…

#7. In the end, this is about the celebrating of
the macabre, the Gothic tales & The Fantastique of our past through storytelling, song & dance with victuals & libations while keeping in mind, it is meant to be lively but never "cute". In other words, over time, we always felt holidays like Halloween needed a distant friend to lurk behind XMAS & whisper in its ear, "We're still here…" (Kind of how XMAS steps on Halloween's toes but not as stressful, overcommercialized or sappy) Something much darker. A spine tingling epilogue just a little bit before the end of the year we call "The Necrofeast"…
