The Night Before Christmas archiveAn adult antidote to the festive season. It is the night before Christmas and two friends find their toy warehouse being broken into by an ELF! With the joy of Christmas for them well in the past, the friends and a local prostitute need a lot of convincing about its merits, the authenticity of the elf and why the police should not be called. Prepare for a rather different version of Christmas then the one your mother told you, as the desperate Elf tells his startling story and tries to bribe the friends with the opportunity to turn their lives around through the granting of three wishes.
