"You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry! You'd better not pout, I'm telling you why: Santa Claus is coming to town. And he's gonna frickin' mess you up if you don't know what's good for ya. Ya hear me?! " - Al Capone, 1931.
So began Al Capone's famous courtroom defense in which he claimed it was indeed Santa Claus who brought illegal liquor to the American shores, and not him. This began Santa's life of crime (repeated breaking and entering, grand theft confectionery, and criminal jollitude) and the beginning of his status as an international fugitive. (Why do you really think NORAD tracks him every year?)
Troop 8, being the law-abiding citizens we are, decided to host a meeting to raise awareness of this dangerous felon. However, for the sake of political correctness, we also have to acknowledge his other holiday accomplices, such as the nefarious Dr. Hanukkah and his partner Johnny Kwanzaa.
Come for a night of food, drink, a movie, and probably other things too. (No mistletoe, to the disappointment of scouts nowhere)
Patrols A and D bring drinks, such as Sprite, Coke, water, nectar, one of those cool Freestyle machines, sparkling grape juice, sparkling apple juice, sparkling hydrogen peroxide, antifreeze, or milk.
Patrols E, F, and G should bring snacks, including but not limited to Chips, crackers, Frankenstein-like chip/cracker combinations, chex mix, razor blades, apple-flavored razor blades, apples (with razor blades), decorative cheese platters, decorative meat platters, decorative cyanide platters, or lard.
Patrol Z should bring whatever they please. I don't need you telling me what to do!
You can also bring one of your favorite board games, but keep in mind that the meeting is only 1.5 hours long, so bringing Axis and Allies 2: the revenge of Risk is not preferable.
