This is the end.  My only friend, the end.  The circus packs up and hits the road today.  Time for one final trio of totally true tales of terror.

What happens after Christmas and before New Year’s Eve?  Why, Boxing Day, of course!  What happens when the dead rise?  Why, UNBOXING DAY, of course!  Then, it’s time to set up for the end of the year party with that sparkly MIRROR BALL.  After that, there is nothing left but THE COUNTDOWN until that ball drops.

Thank you, my friends, for your patronage to the Sideshow of the Surreal.  Charlie Barker tips his hat to you, one final time.  Goodbye.
