It was December, and that meant it was Christmas.
Unfortunately Zee was entirely too enthusiastic about the Holiday. If he'd been in Agrelos around Halloween, you could've heard him busting out carols left and right. Maybe he was just hyping himself up for his first Christmas ever? He was, after all, born in January of this year, just missing the past season. Cherrycola'd had a Christmas before, though- he'd always been the lucky one. His mom always talked about what she'd get the two of them; usually she liked entertaining things that matched, which Zee had always found embarrassing, but she also threw out real gift ideas every once in a while. She'd always loved Christmas and had talked about it frequently despite being totally seasonally inappropriate.
So, to honor her, he was making ugly sweaters. It was a tradition she'd talked about before, and though he had almost no idea what he was doing, he was determined to make this fun. He'd gathered sweaters and other sweater-shaped material to use for the clothes themselves (but don't ask him where he found it), as well as some silly decoration things like twigs and homemade paint to use. Maybe then he could prove himself a friend to his new clanmates. His mind floated to Joy Division and Elian, who seemed like tough nuts to crack (though for different reasons), and he was determined to get them in on this.
"I'm makin' ugly sweaters! It's fun, so you should join me! Plus, uh, we can, like... do a meet and greet, or somethin', too," the boy called, bright-eyed and intense in his enthusiasm. He promptly thrust a black paw into some forest-green paint, and began working at a design for his own sweater, the color of which was an unsightly neon pink.
