“The Twelve Alien Days of Christmas”

Revisiting a holiday classic via my odd little universe.

Alien Santa

    Thirteen years ago, back when I was using the writing name of “L. George Daniels,” I put together a little UFO-related parody of the traditional carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” and posted it on a long defunct site of mine. Oddly enough, novelist and self-professed UFO experiencer Whitley Strieber picked up on it, and a year after it was discovered by an organization devoted to skeptical enquiry, the (honest!) Rational Examination Association of Lincoln Land (REALL), which requested to include it in their December 2000 Newletter (PDF link).

    Being just odd enough, I though I’d submit it once again for your holiday perusal.

    Happy holidays from me and mine to you and yours.

Evan –

As a matter of fact, he is. He’s been running a site called “Unknown Country” for many years. You can find his “Journal” page here.
