T'is the season to make folly, Fah la la la lah la-la lah lah. 
Dress up or dress down.  Frankly, my dear, we don't give a damn, but if we gotta be damned, we wanna be damned dancing through the night with you! 
So, buff up your baubles, detangle your tinsel and help the Fairy from the tree! Heaven can wait, but the Bats out of Hell ain't that patient!   
It's time for all Jingle Belles to essay a sashay and shimmy in seasonal sport.   Are you all revved up with nowhere to go?  Saturday night might be alright for fighting but Friday night is Rumpus!   
The partridge is in the pear tree and we're stocked up on figgy pudding. Putting the Adventure in Advent, live out your rock and roll dreams and be sure that there's not a dry eye in the house.  
There's no doubt a certain fool for Yule from the Rumpus crew will have all his dreams come true with this medley of Meatloaf inspired magnificence.  Well maybe not all...I hear he'll do anything for love, but he won't do that. 
For the possible presence of presents, for the future of Christmas Past, for crying out loud: not everyone is a dead ringer for love, but come see paradise by the dashboard light!  After all, two out of three ain't bad.   
So, please, step sidewise into the mystical, magical, musical, mulled mayhem that is Rumpus and see the other side of Santa.
