The Winter Holiday promo is now underway!

During the promo, you'll be able to see exclusive holiday cut scenes with your favorite characters! Find out how the crew is spending this year's winter holiday!

Holiday messages can be viewed by clicking the Santa hat icon in a character's journal profile. The profile is found in Menu > Journal > Field Notes > People > Characters.

Changes from Last Year

  • Regarding characters with multiple Holiday cutscenes, all of the cutscenes will be available for all players regardless of when they started the game.
  • Cutscene availability is now two weeks.

How to add cutscene text and links

  1. Go to the character's associated Lore page.
  2. Find the subsection for Special Cutscenes.
  3. Add the text to the appropriate fields in the HolidayTabs template.
|xmas_link1=
|xmas_text1=
|xmas_link2=
|xmas_text2=
|xmas_link3=
|xmas_text3=

  • All usages of player names (i.e. your name) should be replaced with (Captain).
  • Please be aware of which cutscene you are viewing by examining the URL. For example, http://game.granbluefantasy.jp/#quest/season_event_scene/scene_s2_christmas_3009_v4/0/2005/3040120000/2/5 contains s2 meaning it's cutscene 2 and v4 which is the 4th released version of that character.
  • Maintain any linebreaks by using <br /> tags after each block of text.
  • Multiple versions of the same character usually have the same cutscene text, but this doesn't matter. Cutscene text should still be added under all versions. URLs will always be different.
  • Do not manually type in cutscenes as it is susceptible to errors. Use the Allow Copy chrome extension to highlight in-game text for easy copy and paste of cutscene dialogue.

Abby (Promo)

Abby: It's everyone's favorite day of the year again! And the tree's decorated nice and pretty, right?
Bobo: Bobo! (That's right. Let's party!)
Abby: Back when I lived in the woods, people used to ask me to chop down fir trees all the time, so I split 'em right in two!
Bobo: Bobo... Bobo... (If I remember right, there was hardly anything left of the forest after you were done.)
Abby: Anyway... I was always super busy at this time of year! And I couldn't have done it without you, Bobo!
Bobo: Bobo! (Maybe... but working under you was a nightmare!)
Abby: If you do your job right this year, I'll reward you with some of your favorite bugs! You'd like that, wouldn't you?
Bobo: Bobo... Bobo... (How many times do I have to tell you I hate bugs!)

Abby: Hmm, I heard we're eating turkey for the holiday dinner.
Bobo: Bobo! (Finally! Some real food!)
Abby: Oh, but I guess you can't eat it 'cause you're vegetarian. (Captain), you can eat his slice for him!
Bobo: Bobo! (I can make an exception!)
Abby: Don't worry, I'll get you lots and lots of medicine herbs instead! I hear they're good for you!
Bobo: Bobo! (It's better than bugs, but at least give me something that has more taste!)

Abby: (Captain)! Will Santa really give me a present tonight?
Bobo: Bobo. (I hear kids get nice things as a reward for being good.)
Abby: Okay! Then I want a grindstone to sharpen my axe!
And, and! I want to split all kinds of things in two!
Hehe! I'm so excited for Santa! I just can't wait!
Hey! What if I split the sun in two? Would it become night?
Bobo: Bobo... Bo... (The stuff this girl says gets more absurd each year...)

Abby: The holy night's upon us again! That shiny grindstone I got last year to polish my axe made me super happy!
Bobo: Bobo! (Well, you weren't exactly a naughty girl last year!)
Abby: I wonder if I'll get something this year too...
Bobo: Bo... Bobo? (I'd say yes... Though I wonder what's on your wish list this time.)
Abby: What's that, (Captain)? You want to know what sort of present I'd like? Great question!
I want an axe so gigantic that it can split the sun in two!
If it's perpetually nighttime, Santa's job becomes that much easier, and I get my present! It'd be like killing two birds with one stone!
Besides, I'm sure the sun would return to normal once the holy night's over! Whew, how much fun it'd be!
Bobo: Bo... Bobo... (Your ambitions grow grander every year, but can Santa keep up?)
Bobo? (And how do you plan on getting the sun back to normal afterward anyway?)

Happy holidays!
I can't hold all these presents I got for Ardora!
Sorry to bug you, but could you help me carry them?

Enjoying the festivities, (Captain)?
What's this? You got a present for Ardora too?
Thanks! Let's take a look here...
Wait. Wait, wait, wait! This does not suit my daughter!
Seriously, (Captain). A pink dress? This does not bring out her eyes!

Yo, (Captain)! Here's my holiday gift to you. Take it already.
I picked it out with Aldora. Pretty neat, huh?
Isn't she just the greatest kid you've ever seen! If only you knew how much she dotes on you...
Grr... I must admit I'm a bit jealous...

I'll pass on dinner and drinks, (Captain). It's straight to bed tonight.
Do you know what Ardora said to me? She said she's going to be my Santa Claus!
She's such a good girl. What kind of dad would I be if I stayed up late after hearing that?
So I need you to bring her to my room before she ends up drifting off to sleep!
I'll be waiting under the covers!

Aglovale

This night is sacred, and many of the people of Wales are spending it with their kin.
What have you and your crewmates planned?
I see... A banquet to which all members are invited.
Any night spent with one's intimates is sure to be outstanding.
Well then, please accept this present from me.
This wine is the pride of my dear Wales.
Take it back to your vessel and share it with the others.

I have only one matter to discuss with you today, (Captain).
Regarding the holiday feast you hold with your crew every year...
I would like to offer the Wales cathedral as a venue for your celebration this year.
Of course, our best chefs will prepare a scrumptious dinner and various local specialties for your enjoyment.
There is no need to hesitate. I am simply curious...
I'd very much like to know how a captain such as yourself rewards the crew's members for their hard work...
As I will also be in attendance, there is no need for constraint. You are most welcome.

Was it cold out there, (Captain)? Yer nose is all red.
Good gracious... Look at all that snow.
Hm? No, I don't mind the snow per se.
My joints just start hurtin' when the weather gets cold...
Actually, I don't know why I'm tellin' you this. A youngin like yerself wouldn't understand.
Ahahaha!

Tonight's a special night, isn't it? Who will you celebrate it with?
If it's not too much to ask, do you mind if I join you?

Holiday party tonight? Well, guess I should lend a hand. Do you want me to carry this?
I know that feeling of putting yourself on the line for your friends. Danger is an occupational hazard for us skyfarers.
But in the face of those dangers, we can still laugh, even if for the briefest of moments. I wonder if we have you to thank for that, (Captain).
I'm a little jealous of your capabilities and compassion, you know...
Heh. No, I'm just mumbling to myself. Come on, let's get excited for tonight.

It's a blessing to be able to celebrate this holiday night without incident.
Heh. But something's missing.
Take a good look at the tree, (Captain).
Haah!
What do you think of the lights? We all did our best to hide this from you.
My electricity provides power and changes their colors.
It turned out pretty well considering how anyone could decorate the tree any way they wanted.
The holiday's just getting started. Let's enjoy ourselves at the banquet.

Brr... It's chilly outside. Are you okay with the cold, (Captain)?
Though I sure wasn't expecting to have to go shopping for ingredients during the middle of a party...
But maybe I should just be glad for the chance to tour the town with you.
The people walking these streets, our fellow crew members back at the party, and you...
Everyone's so jolly. What a wonderful night it makes for.
We'll be back to our usual busy routine tomorrow, so we should make the most of days off like this.
All right, let's pick up some fruit and cake along with the ingredients we were asked to bring back!

I see this year's holy night is as festive as ever.
Between the holiday trees and light displays, it's no surprise that everyone's so excited.
Huh? (Captain), your face looks a bit flushed. Come here a second.
Hm. This feels like a fever and the beginnings of a cold.
We better take care of you. How about warming your body in a nice spring?
What do you say, (Captain)? Feel like a trip to Levin?
I guarantee a soak in our famous hot springs will cure your cold instantly!

To be honest, all of my memories of this season involve being cold and lonely.
I don't know how to handle being so warm and welcome like this.
Thank you, (Captain). Happy holidays.

You've got presents for me, don't ya? Hand 'em over!
What do I want?
Huh? Hmm... Now that you mention it, what do I want?
Ah, well...
I guess I already have everything I want.
Heh heh heh... If I bug you about it any more, you might hit me on the head or something.
But that's not fair! You're supposed to give me a present today!
If you got mad at me for askin', then I'd... I'd... Shut up! I'm not gonna cry!

(Captain), you'd better have a present for me this year too!
Just kidding! I've pretty much outgrown presents!
I'm not a kid anymore, you know?
I'd be the laughing stock of the crew if I didn't stop pestering you for presents.
Hm? You thought the same? Hey, what's that supposed to mean?
What! You didn't prepare anything for today?
Aw, c'mon now... I mean, it's not like I was expecting anything, but would it have hurt to have something on hand?
Aha, you do have a present! Grr, sure had me fooled, (Captain)!
Rgh... I guess the joke's on me this year too!

Yay! Happy holidays!
Hey, hey, (Captain)! Gimme presents!
Huh? You're just giving them to me this time? No strings?
Haha! Whad'ya get me! What will this year bring...
What the! Something came flying out!
Why'd you scare me! It ain't Halloween you know!
Sigh... What kinda crap is this... I shouldn't have got my hopes up...
Huh? There's something else in the box?
Oh! This is the real present!
Dang it! You always get me real good!

Heheh! Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Everyone was calling me over to warm them up with a fireball or two. It wasn't easy getting to them all.
But I guess it wasn't too bad.
Though I wonder if they asked me specifically because they know what I can do. Can't say for sure, but it's nice to be needed.
Aw, this is so embarrassing. My body's getting all hot...
Hey, keep this a secret from everyone, 'kay?
This is between you and me only! Promise me, won't ya?

Singularity, what do you intend to do with all those spheres of snow?
Haha. I know what you're thinking.
Very well. I accept your challenge!
Hm? What's wrong? You seem displeased.
Though it may be a mere game, one must give one's very best in all things!
What? You understand what Master Uriel meant when he said what he did?
Singularity. You must tell me the meaning of this.

Singularity, have you noticed how everyone in the crew seems awfully fidgety today?
Huh? You mean...
Haha! Ah, yes, I remember now! Tonight is the night of the holy eve!
What an embarrassing faux pas it is that I'd forget. But I shall make things right.
I'll make certain that I'm on time for the gift exchange later today.
I'll prepare gifts that send hearts aflutter!

Alistair

Happy holidays...
I'm not expecting much...
In the Alethea family, it was tradition for us to give each other really thick books as presents...
So I can't imagine anything other than books as presents...
...
Are you stupid? You don't understand?
But it's ok... I'm not expecting anything anyway...

You gotta be kidding me!
You still believe in the legend of the jolly old red saint at your age? Haha.
Didn't you know those tales are for grade school kids? Snicker...
Hey, what the... Why do you have a present?
Huh? You got it from the old saint? No way! That's impossible!
No wait, but you really did get a present.
This calls for further investigation. Please elaborate on when, where, and how exactly you acquired the gift.
In more detail, please!
De-tails!

(Captain), I've grasped an important truth!
What is it, you ask? Why, it's about the jolly old red saint—what else?
Poring over tome after tome has cemented my conviction: it simply isn't possible to receive presents from such a person!
Can you put forward any counterevidence? This year I'm not about to be deceived by the gifts that you offer.
Hm? You've got a present for me?
It's from the jolly old red saint, you say?
No, please hold up! I never said I didn't want it.
If anything, there's a pressing need to investigate. So please, (Captain)...
Hand the present over.

Hum-dee-dum! Why hello, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
I look like I'm in a good mood, you say?
No, I'm the same as always. Please, I'm the shining beacon of hope—the one and only Alistair Alethea.
Just because it's the holidays, I won't go prancing around, like those other commoner children.
Eehehehehe...
How... How did you know I got a present from the jolly old red saint?
Yes, it's true that he paid me a visit while I was sleeping and left a gift by my pillow.
Gasp! Could it be? You've been spying on the old red saint this entire time, haven't you?

Happy holidays!
I always spend today with my Mama and Papa.
All day long, I get to enjoy my family's cooking!
I'm sure they'd both appreciate it if you came along, (Captain). Let's go!

Mama and Papa are asking for you to come over, (Captain).
Seems they really enjoyed your company last year!
Mama's made all your favorites! C'mon and get ready, she's waiting for you!
Papa told me to invite all the crew members along this time! Let's go let them know!
I have a feeling this year's holiday party is going to be a blast! Don't you?

Happy holidays!
My grandpa's coming by my house for a visit today! It's been so long!
We'll get to duke it out like the old days! I can't wait to show him how much stronger I've gotten!
We'll follow up the training session with a holiday party!
You and everyone else should drop by, (Captain)! I'd love to introduce you to Gramps!
Teehehe, it's gonna be so much fun tonight... I'm already stoked just thinking about it!
Well, I'd better get shopping in preparation. Any chance you can give me a hand with that, (Captain)?
I'll treat you to an extra helping of everything as thanks!
Let's make this the bestest party ever, (Captain)!

This year, I followed Mama's instructions and tried making a special dinner to celebrate the holy night!
I've always helped out and stuff, but this was my first time making it from scratch by myself.
It's harder than it looks, you know! There's a lot of secret ingredients involved and tricks to adjusting the heat and flavor in Mama's cooking.
I'm impressed that she's always put so much effort into preparing for the party every year!
Anyway, I think it turned out pretty well, so I hope you'll have some too. Are you free tonight, (Captain)?
Great! Okay, then I'll go and get things ready! Look forward to it!

Ahh, this takes me back! I remember leaving stockings on the bed and begging my father for red shoes befitting a princess.
Can you believe he bought me a shovel instead? Gosh, I must have cried that whole morning away!
But I came to love the shovel so much I would celebrate the holidays each year digging away in the coal mines. Proof that I'm a Valtz girl, born and raised!

Ooh! Look at all that snow! Never knew there was so much! I'd heard a lot about it, but seeing it is something else!
I'm gonna try to touch it...
Eep! Ahaha!
Man, that's cold! Startled me for a second there! It's gonna be a white holiday this year!
Say, (Captain)! Do you know how to make a snowman? C'mon! Show me how!

Happy holidays!
Way back when, I pretty much always worked in the mines on the holiest night of them all.
I didn't ever think that I would be here on the Grandcypher and not working.
But you know I do feel a little uneasy not doing anything physical.
Hm... I know! Let me help with the tree!
I'll put the shiniest ore from the mines all over it!

Happy holidays!
Sigh... Yelling out loud helps me forget the cold. Too bad it doesn't last long.
Speaking of cold, Santa Claus flies through the freezing skies in his sleigh to deliver presents, right?
How does his sleigh resist the cold? No, wait. It's gotta be his clothes... I wonder what they're made of?
Oh hey, that gives me an idea! I could probably put his secret to good use in forging the perfect weapon.
All righty. I'll ask Santa himself, and you're going to help me do it, (Captain)!
So let's get to it! Hm... Um, how am I supposed to contact him though...

The airship's been looking a bit festive lately...
What exactly is going on here, (Captain)?
I see... You're planning a celebration! Indeed everyone has gotten into the holiday spirit.
Is this how you celebrate the holidays where you're from?
Well, being a wallflower won't do me any good...
So please allow me to join in on the festivities with you!

Come now, Vyrn! Give them back! My glasses aren't for you to play with!
Vyrn! That's quite enough joking for now!
Good grief. Vyrn is a handful...
What is he thinking? Using my glasses to decorate the tree...
And don't just stand there, (Captain). Tell him to behave already...
Hm?
What are you laughing about? Hm? You're saying that all this time...
I haven't been talking to you, (Captain), but to the tree...

Is that a holiday gift list for the younger crew members?
Hoo-hoo. That brings back memories. I once made a request to Santa Claus when I was a child.
I asked for a rare, out-of-print analytical report written in a mysterious ancient language...
But when I woke up the next day, there was a brand new analytical report beside me.
I recall thinking that must have been the best Santa Claus was capable of.
What did you ask for, (Captain)?

Oh, (Captain)? Huh? I have a fine holiday outfit, you say?
That's not exactly what I had in mind... Hm? My back?
What in the... These are tree decorations that got stuck to the feathers of my clothing!
I must have been so absorbed in my reading material that I didn't notice the ornaments falling from the tree!
I'll have to set things right before dinner begins, or the efforts of those handling decorations will be for naught!
But which tree was it? If I cannot even recall that...
You happen to know, (Captain)? Ah, a true savior you are! Won't you please show me the way?
As thanks, I'll sing you a holy hymn for tonight's banquet. Hm? You'd rather not hear it? But why not?

Santa Claus? What's that?

I know! Let's catch him! He can get us to in Helheim and I can meet my mother!

I couldn't find him this year either... You know, the old man who grants wishes.
So I asked the woman at the chapel to give him a message for me. She promised me she'd tell him.
And would you believe it, I got his reply today! He said that if I was a good little girl, I'll meet Mother again for sure!
So that's just what I'm going to be! Hehe!

(Captain). Have you met the grandpa? The wish granting one.
I heard that he grants good little boys and girls their wishes.
Rackam said if I wanted to become a good little girl, I should follow your example.
So I'm gonna watch you real close and do what you do. Stay close to me until I become a good little girl, okay?

Does the gift-grandpa really fly around the world in a sleigh?
If he does, and I catch him, I'll get the sleigh too.
I bet he knows a shortcut to Helheim...
And his sleigh can go around the world in one night...
With both him and the sleigh, I can go to where Mother is!
So help me capture the gift-grandpa, (Captain)!

This year will be the year I finally capture the gift-grandpa!
How do I plan to go about that? It's obvious, isn't it? With raw strength!
It'll be fine! I'm going to pull out all the stops this year!
Why are you trying to stop me, (Captain)? Huh? If I injure him he won't give us gifts?
Ah, I didn't think about that! Do you have a better plan?

Happy holidays.
Today we're having a party for everyone, aren't we?
Let me and my cloud take care of the high decorations!
Hmm? What is it, cloud? What are you doing? Haha! That tickles!
Ehehe. My cloud sure is ready for fun today!

Tonight is a special night, isn't it? So are you going out tonight?
Hmm? You want to know why I'm asking? I guess it's because I'm not really doing anything right now...
I was wondering if maybe you wanted to spend some time with me tonight.
What? You do?
Yay yay! So is this a date, then? Yay, a date, a date!
A date with (Captain)! Hehehe. I better go pick out something to wear!

Zzz... Mmm...
Thank you... presents... Santa... beard... so fluffy...
Hmm? Oh, it's you.
Present? It's already here... What are you going on about? See? Right over there—
I-it's gone! How? I know Santa gave me a present for sure!
Wait, you were just hiding it behind you? Sheesh... don't scare me like that.
Hee hee, a present... I wonder what it could be?
Don't you wanna know too, (Captain)? Let's open it together!

Hey, do you think Santa will come again this year too?
I want to see him and say thanks.
If he's coming, then all I have to do is stay up to meet him, right?
Yawn... Um... The Sandman's effects are...
Zzz... Zzz... Hehe... Thank you...
Hm? Oh hey, (Captain). Did Santa leave already?
I see... Well at least I got to say thanks... I'm going back to bed. Good night.

Happy holidays!
I think you and I were destined to spend this season together.
Why, just look up at the sky. The stars are shining brightly for us. They want us to be happy!
You have no idea what I'm talking about? I'm just practicing for when I meet my princess!

Happy holidays.
Hark, can you hear those sacred melodies? It's as if we're being blessed!
Take my hand and dance with me, Princess!
How was that?
Do you think I've become more beguiling and romantic in my princely capacity compared to last year?
But still my fair princess has yet to appear... Sigh...

Isn't this a splendid party? Witness how the flickering candle flames are akin to twinkling stars in the evening sky.
Amongst the radiance of these celestial bodies, would it be rude of me to abscond with one? Just one.
The celestial that is you.
...
How was that, (Captain)? This year I've got my lines down pat!
Then me and my darling will sneak away from the party.
The fated winter night has come!
I'll surely meet the princess of my dreams tonight!
Hm? What are we going to do after we leave the party?
Um... Actually I haven't thought that far ahead yet.

Why, you're quite the sinful captain, aren't you? First you steal my heart, and now you're already making the next move.
But it's fine. Because my heart...
And every other part of me is all yours for the taking!
(Epic delivery.)
How 'bout that, (Captain)? I think I'm getting better at this.
Huh? There's a party with the crew coming up?
Hm, as much as I enjoy being an escort on this special night...
A prince must prioritize his bonds with his fellow crew members.
I've made up my mind. Let us attend the party, (Captain)! Fun times do not wait for anyone!

Season's greetings! Everyone in town gets so excited around the holidays!
Before I was called to duty, every year I would spend the holidays with my family.
I remember the holiday cookies were to die for...
Hm? No, I didn't mean that you should go and make some for me or anything! Honest!

This is our second holiday season together!
So let's get dressed up and go out into town!
Heheh... When you and I stand together like this, we almost look like...
Wait! Never mind!
Hm? What's that you say? You got a table reservation at that pastry place?
That's incredible! Don't tell me... You remembered what I told you last year, didn't you?
Aw! You had me fooled acting all nonchalant!
Heheh! You're a doll! Now let me pinch those cheeks! Pinch pinch pinch!

So this place is your favorite this time of year, right, (Captain)?
It's quite nice! Sitting here on this hill and looking down at the lights in the town below...
With the blanket of snow all around, it looks completely surreal! I'm quite enjoying it here.
Hm? You have one more place you want to go after this? A store that sells strawberry pastries, huh?
You don't really think that buying me some strawberry snacks will get you on my good side, do you?
As if! Heh-heh-heh!
But I'm very pleased! Now let me smush your cute little cheeks!
Smush! Smush! Smush!

La-lalaa. There we are. Decorations are all set.
It's a pity that there's a snowstorm out today, but sometimes it's nice to spend a cozy night indoors.
Hm? What's that box you have there?
S-strawberry cake! My favorite!
How did you know? Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Ahem. Actually, I too have a present for you.
Ta-daa! A hand-knitted wool cap! It even has a fluffy little ball on top! Isn't it cute?
Mhm! Suits you well! As expected!
It's made from the best, warmest wool one can find. Do you like it?

Welcome to my humble abode! Come join me inside.
It truly is a shame that our plans to enjoy an evening excursion were disrupted by a raging blizzard.
Though I suppose spending this holy night lounging indoors can prove to be enjoyable in its own right.
Well then, an occasion such as this one calls for a nice knitted blanket! Come a little closer...
Hehehe! A fine, fluffy bundle of warmth we make!
Hmm? Is that a box in your hands? Could that be a present for me?
How marvelous! A strawberry cake! Did you prepare this for my sake?
What a thoughtful present from a thoughtful person! You must allow me to provide a show of appreciation in return!
Hold your mouth open and say "ahh"! Come now, do it quickly!

Oh, um, (Captain)? Isn't the holiday season wonderful?
Listen, um, every year I usually celebrate with just Nightmare and I...
B-but this year, I was wondering if maybe... (Captain), would you like to spend the holidays with us?

Anna: It's the holiday season, so...
I, umm, have a gift for you!
Because... it's been really cold lately. A-and I thought you might like to feel warm...
Nightmare: You better not go catchin' a cold now!
Anna: I... I knit this sweater for you... I hope you like it...
You do? Yay!
Aaah...
Eep!
Sorry, that made me so happy...

Ah, (Captain)!
You're wearing it!
Th-this makes me so happy!
I knit you a nice hat to go along with the sweater!
I hope it helps you keep warm, (Captain)...
Teehee...

(Captain), happy holidays.
I-I'm so happy you're wearing the present I gave you.
Th-this year I... uh...
Yeah!
Uh, uh... I-if we stay close, we'll be warmer...
You told me that it's toasty when you're near somebody, (Captain)...
Are you warm? G-good...
It's, um, cold out, so... Let's heat each other up.

Anna: Um... (Captain)? What's that bag in your hands?
Huh? I-it's a present for me?
Wow... A sweater and a hat! They match the ones I made you!
You made these for me? Th-thank yoouuu!
Nightmare: Now that's an awesome gift!
Anna: I-I'll treasure this forever and ever! Hehe...

I sure hope the holiday party is a success!
Drinks: check.
Food: check.
One juicy turkey: double check!
Hm? The tree?
Ah!
Um... Well, uhh...
Of... Of course it's ready!
Look! A special spirit tree!
C'mon, let's put the ornaments on it together!
Hm? Dishonoring the dead?
What're you talking about! They don't mind! My summons love being decorated!
Come on! Hurry now! I can't wait to wow everyone with this one-of-a-kind spirit tree!

(Captain)! Happy holidays!
What am I doing? I'm decorating my spirit tree.
You remember that's what I did last year too, right?
Everyone loved it, so this year I decided to do the same thing again.
Hehe! And this year, I'm going to be even more fancy with it!
I hope you get the chance to see my spirit tree!

Oh, (Captain). Did I wake you up?
Hm? What am I doing? Can't you tell? I'm being Santa!
I mean, it's the holiday season.
So I thought I'd leave a present by everyone's pillows, just like Santa.
That being said, happy holidays, (Captain)! This one here's from me to you. Don't be shy—take it!

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Heh heh... Tonight is quite the auspicious occasion.
There's an old tale about this important night. Have you heard it, (Captain)?
In ages past, two countries feuded with each other.
Their conflict stretched across the years...
Only on this festive night did they lay down their weapons and sing songs of celebration.
On a night like tonight, we remember. Deep down inside, none of us desire conflict.

Season's greetings, (Captain).
Did you get a present from Santa yet?
Heh heh, I sure do hope it's something nice.
Bringing presents and smiles to everyone—truly an admirable man, Santa.
Spreading happiness and joy to others... It's not so hard if you think about it though.
You don't have to do anything big. Just a small gesture can be enough to show someone you care.
Maybe if everyone were like that, then peace could come to this world...
My wish this year is for our days ahead to be blessed with smiles and happiness.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Haha... Do I look that happy?
Actually some children saw my mustache and thought I was Santa.
I am honored to have been mistaken for such a great man.
Haha... Then I moved my mustache a little and the children frolicked about happily.
That is what I must protect—the smiles of the children.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Haha. It seems you've been quite busy with decorating for the holy night.
I, too, took on the challenge of putting up ornaments on the tree together with the children.
The children seemed to be having trouble with decorating the top of the tree, so I used my spear to hook the ornaments on.
Apparently they were quite impressed and even gave me a round of applause. I must say, that made me rather happy.
I never thought the spearsmanship I learned in order to exercise control would someday bring such joy to innocent children...
Ah, it seems another child is having trouble with the ornaments.
That would be my cue to step in. Looks like it's going to be an exceptionally lively night this year.

Happy holidays.
You know... I like noise and excitement, but right now I just want to spend the evening in silence...
That's why I made sure we were alone. Just me and my precious (Captain)...
Hey. Wanna spend the rest of today just like this? Together?
Wha? You do? R-really?
Ngh... No! I knew it! It's too embarrassing... Huh? You were just making fun of me?
Don't do that!

It's snowing... No wonder it's so cold.
Is it okay if I inch a little closer to you, (Captain)?
I'm not really dressed for this weather...
Can you... help keep me warm, (Captain)?
Eeep! A-are we cuddling already?
Aagh... I did say to keep me warm, but this is...
Aah! N-no! I-I can't... Ngh!
Hm? Am I blushing? That's because you were snuggling up against me...
Ngh, (Captain). I'm not cold anymore, so give me some room, okay?
Otherwise, I won't be able to handle it...

(Captain), happy holidays!
(Captain), do you have any plans for tonight?
If you don't, why not go to a party with me?
But wait... You probably can't becau—
Huh? You can?
Thank you, (Captain)!
Hehe... I get to have you all to myself on a night like this... What a dream...
Let's make the most of tonight, okay?

Oh, (Captain). There you are.
Me? I was looking for you.
Isn't it natural to want to spend such a special night with the person most important to me?
Yes. You heard me correctly.
You know how I feel about you already, don't you?
T-that's why, um... If you're willing, why don't you join me in my room tonight?
A-and we can have a party, just the two of us.
(I actually said it... But I had to if I want us to go any further together...)
(There's no turning back now. I-I can do this!)
A-anyways, I'll be waiting in my room!
U-um... You can join me whenever you want, but only if you want to, of course!

Oh, it's you, (Captain). I was just writing a song for the holiday season. I've been trying to come up with some lyrics, but maybe you can assist me.
Purge this night of its silence. Punish the corrupted trees with gentle decoration. For in my heart, the red rose of snow blossoms this night.
What do you think? You can be honest with me. Wait, why are you running away?

Heh. I just went into town with Vermillios. While we were there, something unimaginable happened.
Some children on the street pointed over to me. Then they yelled out the title of my newest song.
You'd never imagine you'd have that kind of impact on people. I even thought that song would be hard for children to understand, but I'm starting to get a sense of their talents.
You want to know the name of my new song? All right. It's Thunder Claus. Yeah, the one with the white bag.
You know, you seem pretty interested in the song. All right, I'll let you hear it.

I have returned, (Captain). Vermillios and I were out to town buying supplies. We even dropped by a chapel on the way.
But upon hearing the children's hymns, our hearts were lit afire. We could not help but join in.
Humph. The priest was absolutely enraged by us, however.
We barely made it out of there.

Ah, (Captain). Would you kindly lend me your ear?
I was thinking about delivering gifts to all the kiddos in the crew.
I've already picked everything out, but I can't decide who to give what to.
Check this out. Who do you think would want a sunlight stone? Or this ancient relic and an island's ownership?
Hm? You look thunderstruck. All of these came from gig signing-bonuses.
You think toys would be a safer bet? Let me get a sound check from Vermillios and the others.

What comes to mind when you think about holiday music? I imagine it depends on the person.
Young people think of lighter songs, the older generation thinks of solemn classics. What do I think of?
Well... Why don't I play some for you?

I hope my song may please the gods on this most holy night.
Hm? You made gingerbread cookies? There might not be enough to go around?
...
All right, performance is over. Where were those cookies again? I see. Excuse me, I'll be right back.

Looks like it's the season again. Time for another song for the gods. Don't worry, this year I'll follow the song all the way through. I made sure to eat before I start.
Hehe. I actually asked the cook to slip me a couple of bites just now.
What? Cheating? This is for the gods after all. Some rules have to be bent if need be!

Okay, now for the twelfth song...
Haha... I can keep going. I need to stay focused on something, or I won't be able to stand the wait.
I was so surprised coming to this town. I'd never considered such a way to enjoy the festivities.
I can already picture the juices leaking from its plump, well-done body as I sink my teeth into it...
I don't think I can bear the wait for the roasted pig much longer...

Oh, (Captain)! What are you doing still up at this time?
Me? I suddenly got the urge to play my lyre...
So I came out here to strum a few notes by myself.
If you're not busy, would you like to listen to me play something?
It'd be nice if there was somebody here to listen...
Hehe, thank you. Then this will be a special performance that's only for your ears, (Captain).
Hmm, let's see... I'll name this "A Holiday Carol Just for You." What do you think?

Arthur (Event)

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I don't believe in Santa Claus anymore of course, but there's something about the spirit of the season that gets me so excited!
I bet all the little ones back at the orphanage are going all out with the decorations this year...
I'm not so great myself, but when it comes to arts and crafts, Mordred's a prodigy!
Oh, here's an idea! Let's decorate the Grandcypher together!
Stay right here; I'll go get Mordred!

Happy Holidays, (Captain)!
This year Mordred and I picked out presents to send to the little ones at the orphanage.
I wonder if they've arrived yet. I'm all nervous about whether the kids'll like their gifts.
I still get excited about holiday stuff like parties and receiving presents myself...
But I guess I'm old enough to feel a little self-conscious about that.
Mordred, on the other hand, seems cool as a cucumber. Like he's not sweating it at all.
But I'm sure deep down, the kids' reactions are on his mind!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Um, when I woke up this morning, there was a present by my bed. Did you put it there?
No? Then maybe it was Mordred... Nah, he'd never do that.
Hm... I also found a strand of white hair caught in the ribbon—ah! Could it have been Santa?
Whoa! I can't believe Santa himself came to my room! That's so awesome!
Hehe. It's because I was even nicer this year than I was last year!
I'm gonna go show off my present to Mordred! I'll show you what I got later, (Captain)!

Arthur and Mordred

Arthur: Oh, (Captain)!
Mordred: Happy holidays!
Hm? This package?
Arthur: Hehe. It just arrived this morning. Presents from the sister at the orphanage!
Mordred: Geez... I told her we're not kids anymore. We don't need presents!
Arthur: I don't want to put her to any trouble either, but...
It does make me happy.
Mordred: ... I didn't say I was unhappy about it.

Arthur: Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I hope you like these ornaments we made for you!
Mordred: We kinda went overboard when we were making ornaments for the little ones of the orphanage.
You might not like how kiddie they look, so you don't have to keep them or anything...
Arthur: Wait, you want to know how we made these? Ah! I bet you're gonna decorate the whole ship with them!
Woo-hoo! Did you hear that, Mordred? (Captain) approves!
Mordred: Uh... That doesn't mean anything if our swordsmanship isn't up to par.
Arthur: Yeah, you say that, but you're actually really happy on the inside! You can tell by looking at his ears—
Mordred: Okay, okay! I admit it! I'm real happy (Captain) complimented our ornaments!
So... If you'll come with me, I'll teach you how to make them.

Happy holidays, (Captain). Any plans for the night?
Would you mind if I spent the night by your side?
On a silent and holy night like this, there's nothing better than spending it with a good friend and good conversation.

Tonight we celebrate the holiday season with all our precious friends on the ship.
You may have a frigid, wintry fate ahead of you, but we'll overcome it with camaraderie.
Put another way... people can't do much on their own.
I can see the future, and you have a steady, unyielding resolve. But alone... we're nothing.
Heheh... I can tell you want a little more elaboration.
Let me put it this way. There's no better way to spend days like this than with those precious to you.
Heheh... I thought I would be included in that category for you, but perhaps I was mistaken?
Having memories of these quiet times with you is all I need to overcome any challenge the future poses.

Happy holidays, (Captain)! No matter how old I get, the holiday season always makes me giddy with excitement.
The best chefs in our crew have crowded into the kitchen to show off their skills. I just got back from helping out a bit.
And since holiday feasts differ on each island, we'll be sure to see a smorgasbord of dishes and desserts at the party.
A table full of good eats with everyone chatting happily... Heh-heh! I can't wait for tonight!
But I'm afraid I'll have trouble getting a seat right next to you. I have to admit that's a little disappointing...

Cinnamon, cloves, cardamom... I'll need some ginger, too...
Hmm? Oh, (Captain). I was just thinking about making some mulled wine. It' spiced wine that's served warm.
The warmth from the heat and spices spreads through your body when drinking it-just perfect for winter, don't you think?
With everyone so busy for the holidays, I thought I'd make some. After all, you wouldn't want to catch a cold during this time of year.
Oh, that's right-you can't have any yet, (Captain). It may sound good, but you'll have to wait until you're an adult.
Hehe, don't look so glum.
See, I'll make some chai for you using the same spices.
Sharing a warm drink with your friends for a joyous night and occasion-what could be better?

Oh my, (Captain). What are you doing up so late? You'll run into Santa Claus if you're not careful.
What about me, you ask? Our holiday dinner was so much fun, I can't quite seem to settle down. I thought I'd take the night air to calm down a bit.
I'm so glad we all got to spend such a peaceful night together this year as well.
My only regret is that the seats beside you were so popular, I never had a chance to squeeze in.
But I can't complain. After all, I have you all to myself, now.
If you're in the mood for a little stargazing...
Why don't we shield each other from the night's chill? The night wind won't bite with me by your side.

This is the longest night of the winter season, but it varies by island.
And to make things even more interesting, the traditions people celebrate varies by island too!
Some islands celebrate with festive pastries...
While others prepare massive cakes many days in advance. The food sure varies, that's for sure.
Oh my gosh! Was that the sound of your stomach rumbling, (Captain)?
Hee hee! I'm getting a little hungry myself! I can't wait for the holiday feast tonight!
It sounds like the best cooks in the crew are going to be putting their skills to the test... and we get to enjoy the results!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
We'll be exchanging gifts at the party today, right?
Hehehe... I'm thinking about giving you one of my favorite books.
Oh? I wasn't supposed to tell you that?
That's right, isn't it... I just got caught up in my excitement.
I suppose I might as well give it to you now, then!
My mother often read me this picture book when I was young.
The cats in town roam the streets on a winter's night... Oh! Sorry, you should read the rest for yourself.
Don't worry about the party either... I have another present ready for you.
Hehe... Just wait and see.

Wow! This tree is so pretty! Look at all the decorations!
There's a lot of meaning behind the decorations, you know!
For example, it's said that candles were first used to brighten up long winter nights.
And these sparkling baubles were crafted to resemble apples.
The ornament you place on top isn't just limited to stars either—it changes depending on the culture!
Oh, wouldn't it be adorable to put a little stuffed kitty up there?
Sorry! That's not a custom from an island or anything...
But cats are known for their climbing skills, so I think it would look natural!

The crew is full of people from all over, and tonight's menu truly reflects that! What a lively party!
It's common to gather with family or close friends on this day... Or at least that's a custom observed on many islands.
Everyone comes together and shares a warm meal to help each other overcome the cold winter!
Depending on the island, there are even islands with a custom of soaking in citrus-infused hot springs.
We know from research that the citrus bath has many beneficial effects, like repelling insects.
The peoples of the past realized this too, and that's why they developed this particular bathing custom!
Each custom and tradition is born from logic or purpose.
We mustn't ignore the ways of the past just because they're old. Finding the truth can be quite enjoyable. Oh, I really sound like a librarian right now, don't I?

Happy holidays, (Captain)! Did you find any presents under the tree?

Sigh...
Oh! Hi, (Captain).
Umm... I was wondering if I've been good this year...
I'm always bugging you to take me on missions and doing other selfish things.
I'm sure I've caused trouble for Sutera too...
Hm? You think I've been good?
Ehehe. Thank you, (Captain)!
Even if I don't get any presents, I'll still be happy!

I helped with the holiday party preparations too, (Captain).
I think the best parties are the ones where you work really hard to make sure everything goes as planned!
I'm a good girl?
Mm... I don't really think so.
I'm actually a little worried about how I've behaved this year.
So I thought I should at least make myself especially useful for today.
But I'm sure Santa Claus can tell when kids are just trying to get on his nice list...
Huh? You don't think so?
Hehe. I feel so much better hearing that from you, (Captain)!
Um, well, maybe that was kind of a weird thing to say...
I think you've been really, really good this year too, (Captain)!
Santa will definitely pay us a visit!
Teehee.

(Captain), if you're not busy, do you wanna help me decorate the tree?
Hehehe... If we do a good job, then I'm sure everyone will enjoy looking at it!
Look, I've got ribbon and bells and white string—oh, and these sparkly balls!
But I can't reach the top to put the star on...
Climb on your back? That might work...
But what if I hurt you! This sounds risky, but here goes...
Wh-whoa!
I was right! Hurry and put me down, (Captain), before your back starts to hurt!
Are you okay? Oh, you're used to picking up heavier stuff when you train...
Whew... Well thank goodness! Hehe...
Anyway, thank you very much! Thanks to you, the star is in its rightful place on top of the tree!

Wow, everyone's having so much fun. I should really join in...
Ah! (Captain)! I'll be going up too for the holiday talent show!
But I don't know if my reed pipe playing is going to impress anyone... Everyone else probably has more interesting talents to show...
Eep! Ahahaha! That tickles, (Captain)!
You sure surprised me! What was that for?
Me putting on a smile is what really matters?
Hm, you might be right... When I see people happily performing out in town, I find myself so entranced!
As long as I enjoy myself, the audience should have a great time too!
Thanks for the advice, (Captain). I'm feeling much better now.
But my hands are still shaking from being nervous...
If you don't mind... Could you hold my hands until it's my turn to go?

Everyone seems to be in a festive mood today. Is there a special occasion of sorts happening?
A winter celebration, you say...
I have heard the rumors, but this is my first time seeing a town bustle like this in person.
It is indeed a wonderful sight to behold... I can’t seem to find a frown in sight.
A day where skydwellers celebrate in harmony, together with their loved ones...
If you wouldn’t mind, (Captain), could you teach me more about this holiday?
I wish to know every detail there is to know about such a wonderful day.
Surely the knowledge will prove useful in protecting smiles across the sky.

Happy holidays!
Teehee! (Captain), (Captain)! Look at this giant chicken I fried up!
My parents sent it. Fried chicken for the crew, their letter said.
The party tonight is gonna be a blast!

Okay, kids! Put those ribbons up on the wall please! Phew, preparations are going swell!
(Captain), thanks for calling me out to your party. I'm having so much fun just setting up everything with the kids on the crew.
The little munchkins fall into line real easily this time of the year. As soon as I tell them Santa gives presents to little helpers, they're all so quick to help.
If you want in on the presents, (Captain), we could use another hand in the kitchen or with decorations.

Perfect timing, (Captain)! Would you take a look here?
Ta-da! I made a snowman that looks like you, (Captain)! And one like Vyrn too!
We've got a white winter, so we've got to make the most of it!
Huh? Is the nose a bit out of place? The real one's like this... Lemme take a bit off here...
Wait, wait! I'm almost done! Stay with me for a little longer!
Please, just a bit!

What's wrong, (Captain)? You look like you could use some help.
Hm? The children in the crew won't go to bed because they're waiting for Santa?
Haha, what an adorable thing to say! Reminds me of when I was a kid!
Why don't you leave the situation to me? I've got a few bedtime stories up my sleeve that should put them to rest fast!
Though considering how energetic the children are here, I'd have a much easier time if you could come with me.

Gah... Everyone's making a racket. Something tells me I'm not getting any sleep tonight.
Interested in tagging along, Captain?
You're one for bright, festive places, and I should be able to get some training done, too.
Who're you calling lonely? You're asking for some serious season's beatings...

Ugh... You're back? You came to see me during the holidays last year too.
I don't get you sometimes, but as long as you don't mess up my training schedule, you can do whatever you want.
Huh? What do you mean by you're gonna let me stay?
You're not a baby; you don't need my permission. Besides, you wouldn't leave even if I told you to.
Sigh... Damn it...

What are you doing here? You should be off to the holiday party. Some others came by looking for you.
What? You gonna stick around here for a bit, huh?
Humph. Why not join me for a bit of training then? If I win, you leave for the party.
If you win, then... I'll buy you whatever you want in town—
Wha? You'll make me go to the party too?
Kn-knock it off! Who'd wanna go to that crappy thing... Like hell am I gonna lose!

Here you are. Again. Why don't you just give up?
It's the holiday season. I mean, I couldn't care less, but isn't it important to you? Don't waste it on me.
Hm? Today is important, and that's why you're set on spending it with me?
Wha—what do you think you're saying!
The madness of the season must've gotten to you. That's the only reason you'd screw with me like this.
Will I forgive you if you were being serious? That's not what I-
Argh! Whatever! Say what you want!

Humph, what is this winter holiday garbage?
You can just forget it. A demon would never seek to honor a saint.
Your smiling faces, gaudy ornaments, and sappy carols fill me with disgust.
The same goes for that smirk on your face. Wipe it off before you speak to me.
Now tell me, (Captain), what is there for dinner?
Fruit punch, chicken, bread, ham, stew, cake...
Wait, cake?
I won't refuse if you insist on bringing that up.
But hear this! I won't take part in any blessings or giving of thanks! The demons will rise again, but until then...
Mmm, mmm. Gulp.
Humph, disgusting. Bring me some more!

Humph, so that tree's meant to celebrate the holidays?
What point is there in decorating a plant like that anyway? It'll only become trash in the end...
Meaningless labor, wasted resources... Year after year people do the same thing, and yet they never notice, do they?
The round golden ornaments, candy canes, candles, ribbons, apples, bell, and stars...
Hm? There's no star on top of that tree.
You mean you'll leave it to me? Didn't you hear any of what I was saying?
Hahaha... All right then.
If you'd like, I can top it with an inverted pentagram. We can make this a very evil holiday, you know!
What are you so giddy about? No, no, you've got that pentagram right-side up!

Pft, Santa Claus... What a detestable being.
He sets out in the night to bring joy to all! What is more infuriating to a demon than that!
Wait. What are you doing with that bag?
Presents to hand out to the children aboard the Grandcypher? Why are you giving it to me?
No, you couldn't possibly expect me to take on the role of that jolly charlatan!
Hehe. You know what? It's fine. I will give them a gift that only a demon could give.
Instead of joy, I'll set curses upon them...
Starting with this doll! And this airship model! And this play-sword!
Oh, but when their little faces light up in terror! Haha! How comical that will be! Ahahaha!

Snow, huh...
The element of water overflows on days like this. As such it's only natural that the sound of the resonance would change.
To be precise, however, no identical sound ever plays on the same day—or even moment for that matter. That's what keeps things interesting.
Tonight is a very special holy night.
Treasure it and make it a night to remember, (Captain).

(Captain), if I may ask a question...
Tonight is said to be the most wondrous of nights. Can you tell me why?
Oh, is that so! All gather together to celebrate the act of gift-giving?
Ah, to participate in such a selfless act surely emboldens the heart and spirit.
What a delightful tradition this is. I too hope to participate in that act this very night. Hahahaha...

(Captain), happy holidays.
This year I have resolved to make the acquaintance of the man named Saint Nicholas.
Captain, I must beg a request of you.
Would you do me the honor of being by my side even into the eve?
For this is the night I will speak with the deliverer of presents...

(Captain), what a wonderful evening.
I was yet again unable to see Santa Claus.
For what reason does the saint hide himself and yet bestow presents upon us?
I see. So it is his custom to hide.
Would it be the case that he is bound by some law and is unable to show himself?
Then I was attempting to violate his rules...
I have decided to give up my quest to see him.
A person who strictly abides by their own precepts... I aspire to such greatness.

(Captain), if I may ask a favor of you...
Although I do not usually partake in the tradition of this wondrous winter holiday, I must voice my admiration and respect for the old saint.
You see, I wish to be a recipient of his generous alms and study under him.
However, as he does not make his presence publicly known, I lack the means by which to make my request known.
A little bird told me that you are in good standing with the saint.
If you could pass the word on for me, I would be most gracious.

Happy Holidays! Yahoo!
Heh heh... Holidays and festivals really are nice, aren't they?
Huh? I'm partying a little too hard?
C'mon, to party like this is the manliest thing a man can do!
You don't get what I'm talking about?
Ha ha ha... No worries. I don't, either!

Get it together! This is no time to be prancing around, (Captain).
Today the legendary beast called Santa is coming for our destruction!
We need you in top shape! We need to get pumped!
What do you mean for what? It's obvious!
We need to hunt down Santa!
Hahaha... We're gonna steal his presents and then sell them for a profit! You like that idea, don't you?
What? What do you mean, "no"?
Get out of here. If I don't behave myself, then I won't get a present?
I-I can't have that! I need my presents...
Gaaah... It's off... All of it. We can't hunt Santa!

(Captain)! Hyappy holidays!
I've decided that tonight all those little tweedle dees need a big boom to keep them in line!
That means fireworks! I won't stand for a silent night!
What? You think the lights in the sky would work well for the occasion?
How dare you! You mean to tell me I might make those good-for-nothings have an even better time?
This requires action! I'm gonna blow them all away!

Hyaaho, (Captain)! Let's go take one of those guys down!
Huh? Who? Obviously I'm talking about an evergreen tree!
We're gonna find the biggest one, cut it down and turn it into a holiday tree!
Then I'm gonna put the shiniest star ever at the top!
It has to be me, because the honors can only go to the brightest man around!
You can go wild everywhere else though! This tree is gonna be a beauty once we're done!

Happy holidays.
I heard Santa Claus pays a visit to good children.
He knows that adhering to virtue, integrity, and honor is truly the most important thing of all.

There will be throngs of people making merry tonight, opening their hearts which would normally be reserved.
But putting that aside, when I see the twinkling eyes of the boys and girls who have been eagerly awaiting this day...
It warms my heart, and I can't help but smile.

So the merriest day of the year has come. I'm delighted to have the opportunity to spend such a wonderful night with you.
The Lumiel Order of Holy Knights has made it a tradition to decorate a tree today too.
And we generally have the captain of our order place the star on top of the tree.
Naturally Captain Charlotta is no exception.
Our tree was pretty tall one year, so I actually lifted up the captain to help her.
Heh-heh... Those were the days.

The market is certainly bustling during the holidays, isn't it? I thought I would go out to buy provisions, but these crowds made that a challenge.
What did I buy? They were selling these exquisite turkeys, so I purchased a couple.
I should be able to feed the entire crew with these. They'll be the main course for tonight's feast.
I also plan to make a smaller portion specifically for Charlotta's little skyfarer's meal.
You want a little skyfarer's meal too? Then I will happily prepare two.

Oh, (Captain)... What are you doing here in the kitchen? If you're looking for a light meal, I can prepare something for you right away.
You smelled something sweet? It must have been the cake I was baking earlier.
I made a cake as a present for Captain Charlotta, you see. I'm just about to go and give it to her.
Would you like to join us, (Captain)?
Heh, no need to hold back. After all, the more the merrier—I'm sure Captain Charlotta would be happy to share.
Actually, I'm hoping to note down what you like as reference for your present next year as well.

Oh? Has the holiday season come again? Back in the military, we always made sure to observe this time of year.
There's a story from the War about how they called a cease-fire in the middle of battle just for this day.
Since then it's been a rule in the military that everyone observe this time of year!

The holiday season always reminds me of that ghastly incident.
It all happened when I first started as a detective. For the first time ever, I accused someone of being a criminal...
But that man was innocent. Moreover, since I was never formally hired to look into the case, I was kicked out for sticking my nose where it didn't belong.
That was a night to learn from...

Happy holidays, (Captain)! I've got another present for you this year.
Heh-heh... It's an object I came across while at a certain antique store. Isn't it strange?
It looks like a person from one angle and a beast from another... Can you figure out the purpose for making one of these, (Captain)?
Truth is... I'm not even sure.
But on silent nights like these, just using your brain to solve mystical puzzles is a holiday present in and itself, no?
Well... I mean, uh... that's what I think at least!

Thaaat dastaaard!
(Captain), lend me an ear!
This morning I woke up and on my nightstand was this note!
I thank you for your present this holiest of nights. Here is a small token of my appreciation.
After reading this letter, I opened the box!
Look at this! A little doll with it's tongue sticking out came popping out for goodness sake!
That dastaaard!
I was saving that pudding for a special occasion! This will not stand!

(Captain), how about a present to celebrate the occasion?
You want one right? Of course you do! Hahaha! I knew you'd say that, so I prepared one for you!
But first you'll have to match wits with me. A word of warning: this is going to be a toughie.
Hah. Don't give me that look. It's just a bit of fun. Rewards always feel better at the end of a challenge.
Let's start... I've been crafting this little ditty for over a year now. Let's see if you can solve its hidden meaning.
"Armor is not scary. Rosey wards stop warrior tears." Your hint is no WORRYWARTS!
I'll give you sixty seconds to solve it, staaarting now! Ooone...
Agh! You solved it already! How did you know it was "minced pie"?
Hahaha! I should've expected you'd get it so quickly.
Well, just as I promised, here's your gift! Minced pie, fresh from the bakery!
I'm so happy you destroyed my puzzle! Truly! That year I spent working on it was worth it! Hah-hahaha!

Another happy day...
Sigh. Oh, you were here, (Captain).
I'm not a big fan of this holiday.
Something happened in my past that I don't like to reminisce about.
I wouldn't want to spoil your fun, so you don't have to keep me company.
Hm? Why are you still here? Oh? I see...
Thank you for staying with me, (Captain).

Heheh! I made sure to do some research into the meaning behind this holiday!
We're supposed to spend it together with the ones we hold dear. Did I get it right?
...
Um, I mean... like, I want to spend today... with (Captain)... Something like that...
O-okay? Phew... That was nerve-wracking. Hehe!
All right! I'm gonna whip up the tastiest feast you've ever eaten! This is gonna be a delicious day!

Hey, hey, (Captain)! Gimme a present!
Wait, what? You'll actually get something for me?
I mean, I was just joking... I can ask for anything? Okay then...
Um, um... Maybe if you held my hand...
Ah, n-no, I didn't say that! Forget it!
It's fine. I'll just think of something else—Wait! Don't!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Heh heh! Listen... I just had a crazy idea!
We're going to give presents—delicious cookies—to the children in town, right?
That means we'll be the good kids—excellent kids! And then...
That Santa guy will pay us a visit. Hehe, isn't this the best strategy ever?
It's going to be great to see Santa, isn't it? I wonder what sort of person he is.
Okay, let's go hand the cookies out, (Captain)!

Black Knight

It's so silent and snowy tonight... Reminds me of when Orchis and I would wait up for Santa.
I miss those days. But the memories we created give me the strength to keep going.
I suppose children on every island are waiting tonight for him, just as we did.
But I've learned Santa's real gift wasn't the toys he would bring then, but the happy memories we have now.

The kitchen is strangely active.
Hmm? Ah, today is the winter festival? That explains it.
(Captain), you should go enjoy the feast with everyone.
That's an unexpected expression. I will go as well—I have no intention of denying myself these small pleasures.
The memories I build with loving friends are what keep me moving. I have learned this time and time again.

It looks as though it will snow tonight.
There are so many memories that come rushing back as my eyes meet the snow.
No matter how much I change, the snow that falls here never will.
Seeing a world swallowed by the white ice is enough to make even me a bit emotional.
But tonight is the holiest of nights...
I'll find my peace in the children having so much fun.

Oh, it's you, (Captain). Does this garment I'm holding catch your eye?
Sigh... You certainly know how to catch me at an awkward moment.
Tonight is the eve of the winter holiday, and I want to give Orchid and Orchis their presents.
Though I'm sure Orchis would throw a fit, demanding not to be treated as a child.
But giving gifts during this season isn't limited to children. They can be given to anyone that's important to you.
If I'm going to pretend to be Santa Claus, I may as well look the part.
Perhaps my costume will make even the Scarlet Knight feel a hint of envy...
Never mind. That was a stupid joke. Forget I said anything.

What? You want me to make you roast chicken?
You punk... You think I'm going to do it just because it involves fire, don't you!
Humph... Yeah, fine. I'll make it for you since it's a special day.

Huh? What's so special about today? Humph. I see.
It's cold and it's dark. How can anyone call this festive?
Light up the night and make it warmer for you?
Yeah, I think you got me confused for a fireplace.
Tch. Persistent brat. Fine, come closer.
...

Gyahaha! Burn baby burn! Ohh yeah, there's a good girl.
Huh? Oh, (Captain), it's you. I was just getting the stove ready for tonight's dinner.
I'm thinkin' a nice juicy turkey cooked to perfection. Mmm, roastin' that baby is gonna feel so good.
And somehow my flames seem to be getting into a jolly mood as well. Ohh man, am I gonna enjoy this.

Whoa, what's this? Lemme guess: you tried to make a giant snowman and messed up?
Wha? This is supposed to be an igloo?
And you want me to get in there and help you start a fire?
We do that, and your igloo's gonna melt away.
Huh? You sure about this? All right, just don't blame me when the snow comes tumbling down on us.
Heh, I'm surprised your little snow hut is actually still standing.
(Captain), might as well come closer to the fire if you're feeling that cold. Relax—I like you too much to turn you into cinders.

Hey, (Captain). What're you doin' outside in the freezing cold snow?
A snowball fight with the kids? Here we are on this special night, and you're up to the same antics as always.
Huh? Hey, don't take off your coat just 'cause you're hot. That goes for you kids over there too.
If you're all sweaty, maybe it's about time to call it quits. There's chicken fresh outta the oven waiting for you.
Seems like a good time to start the party. I'll get some hot drinks ready while you change.

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I guess that means we've got a jolly old man in red coming by with some presents!
I've been really good this year, if I say so myself. Do you think he'll give me a gift?
I know you're a good person, (Captain), so you'll get something for sure!
We'll get our much deserved rewards and make this holiday the best through and through!

Let's have a party, (Captain)!
It's the season for celebration! Where everyone eats and laughs together!
I did my best through and through with the food and decorations! I know you'll love it!
I hope you enjoy it through and through, (Captain)!

(Captain), it's chilly today so be sure to stay warm through and through!
Your holiday break will go to waste if you catch a cold!
So I took some time through and through to make you something warm to eat!
Nothing would make me happier than to see you warm up after a few bites of my hot homemade dish, (Captain)!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Look! And look real good through and through! These are snowmen that I made!
Starting from the right, this is Captain Charlotte, Sevastien, Baotorda, and Cordelia!
Hehe. What do you think? I call them the Lumiel Order of Holy Snowpeople!
Next, I'll make a snow version of you too, (Captain)!
Would you like to help make it?

Bridgette: (Captain)! We're going to have a holiday party tonight!
Cordelia: Haha, it was Bridgette's idea. Though I did help out with a few things.
Bridgette: I made so much food...
Cordelia: While I thought of ideas to liven up the festivities.
Bridgette: Dear Cordelia will dress up in red and give out presents to everyone!
Cordelia: Bridgette... Weren't we keeping that a secret?
Bridgette: Ah...
Sorry!
Cordelia: Haha, it's fine. Just as long as (Captain) can keep it a secret from the others.
Bridgette: I sure hope you're looking forward to it, (Captain)!

Happy holidays!
Hey! I wonder if Santa is gonna come visit me...
He'll only come if I'm a good girl, right?

Go to sleep already, (Captain).
You know how important tonight is. I'm going to get to the bottom of this Santa legend.
I'll catch him when drops by in the middle of the night and make him cough up everything he knows.
Hm? That sounds so interesting that you can't fall asleep now?
Sigh... Fine, I'll put you to bed later. Go to your quarters and wait for me, okay?

Hey, (Captain)! Won't you spend the night with me?
Hm? What's with the surprised look on your face? I thought I'd be your Santa this year.
Why, you ask? Don't you know Santa's supposed to take center stage for the holiday season?
And no one's more fitting to play the part than a super cute girl like me!
You know it's true!
So gimme a hand, (Captain)! Every Santa's gotta have a reindeer after all.
Just be thankful you get to see me in my Santa outfit up close and personal.

Sigh... I wonder if Santa will finally come my way this time...
I've been such a good girl and haven't done a single bad thing all year round.
Stop. I know. You don't have to list all the exceptions.
Whatever. I didn't get to see Santa the year before or the year before that.
Humph... If he doesn't think of me as a little girl, then I'll have to use that card.
We'll have a party that runs through the night!
You gotta mix things up, what do you say?
Adults have the right to have sleepless nights anyways. You aren't going to say no to me, are you?
(Captain), tonight I won't let you get any shut eye!

Ah, (Captain). Ready to join me for another rockin' party this year?
Huh? What's with this box? I see the greeting card inside's addressed to me.
Don't tell me Santa's finally decided to give me a present after all this time...
(Hold it, I know that look on (Captain)'s face...)
(Aah, I get it. This must be a surprise from my favorite captain.)
You're way too easy to read, (Captain)...
Oh, don't mind me.
Can you pass on a message to Santa if you happen to bump into him.
Tell him, "Thanks a ton for the present! Cagliostro's suuuper happy!"
Don't forget, okay? I really want him to know how I feel...

I'll catch him when drops by in the middle of the night and make him cough up everything he knows.
Hm? That sounds so interesting that you can't fall asleep now?
Sigh... Fine, I'll put you to bed later. Go to your quarters and wait for me, okay?

Hey, (Captain)! Won't you spend the night with me?
Hm? What's with the surprised look on your face? I thought I'd be your Santa this year.
Why, you ask? Don't you know Santa's supposed to take center stage for the holiday season?
And no one's more fitting to play the part than a super cute girl like me!
You know it's true!
So gimme a hand, (Captain)! Every Santa's gotta have a reindeer after all.
Just be thankful you get to see me in my Santa outfit up close and personal.

Sigh... I wonder if Santa will finally come my way this time...
I've been such a good girl and haven't done a single bad thing all year round.
Stop. I know. You don't have to list all the exceptions.
Whatever. I didn't get to see Santa the year before or the year before that.
Humph... If he doesn't think of me as a little girl, then I'll have to use that card.
We'll have a party that runs through the night!
You gotta mix things up, what do you say?
Adults have the right to have sleepless nights anyways. You aren't going to say no to me, are you?
(Captain), tonight I won't let you get any shut eye!

Ah, (Captain). Ready to join me for another rockin' party this year?
Huh? What's with this box? I see the greeting card inside's addressed to me.
Don't tell me Santa's finally decided to give me a present after all this time...
(Hold it, I know that look on (Captain)'s face...)
(Aah, I get it. This must be a surprise from my favorite captain.)
You're way too easy to read, (Captain)...
Oh, don't mind me.
Can you pass on a message to Santa if you happen to bump into him.
Tell him, "Thanks a ton for the present! Cagliostro's suuuper happy!"
Don't forget, okay? I really want him to know how I feel...

Happy holidays!
Look, it's snowing! I've never seen it snow before!
Back on Auguste it was sunny all year round, so I just kept riding the waves through the holidays!
The water gets pretty cold right about now.
I'd have the waves all to myself!

It's already time for the winter holidays, huh? You can feel it in the air... The town is just brimming with holiday spirit!
Just take a look around us—the night is brimming with excitement!
I used to spend my winter holidays at the beach, so I never had a chance to celebrate like this.
It's all thanks to you, (Captain)! Let's enjoy it together tonight!

Brr... It's cold...
It's freakin' freezing! It hurts! My bones are aching!
(Captain)! You came at just the right time! Could you help me?
Tonight I went to a surfer's event, but it was so cold that it was all I could think about.
Oh! (Captain), you're warm... Stay just like that...
This is great... You feel so good. This is where I should have been this whole time...

Whoa! Look, (Captain)! Everything's white, as far as the eye can see!
It snowed a lot yesterday, and the whole town got covered so fast.
Guess the surfing event this year is canceled though.
So how about this! Let's have a blast in town tonight and enjoy all the holiday festivities instead!
You're coming with me, right?
Come on then, let's go! There's only so much time before the fun's over!

Caim: Hey, (Captain), do you think Santa Claus might pay me a visit?
I heard from Siero that he gives presents to good little boys and girls.
I hope he'll give me something too...
The Hanged Man: Hm? Caim, waiting for Santa?
Caim: Mm-hm! I can't wait!
The Hanged Man: Father Holiday, eh...
No need to glare at me like that, (Captain). I know when to keep my mouth shut.
Caim: Huh? What's wrong?
The Hanged Man: Nothing, Caim. You've been a good kid, so I'm sure you'll make Santa's list.

Cain

Oh, (Captain)! Great timing!
What kinda food do you like? Anything you don't eat?
We're going to make a feast to celebrate the holidays!
You're from Phantagrande, right? From Zinkenstill, yeah?
Then you should experience a holiday feast Nalhegrande-style!
I'll make the dishes with love, so get ready for a little taste of heaven!

You know, every island I go to, I always get the same story about the holidays and Santa Claus.
And of course, Nalhegrande was no exception.
This can only mean Santa can freely traverse across all the skies.
I find it hard to believe he's able to go between skydoms so easily though... Makes me wonder if he might just be a myth.
Wha? You've actually met him in person, (Captain)?
Tell me more! C'mon, I wanna hear all about it while we munch on holiday chow down there!

Hey, (Captain)! If you're not busy, wanna go shopping with me?
What for? Haven't you checked your calendar? We have to stock up on supplies for tonight's holiday party!
Oh yeah, this is probably a good time to mention this too. A lot of food stalls have set up shop for the holidays.
So why not snack on some treats while we're out buying stuff?
We might as well buy as much as we can carry too! Then the others won't get mad at us for missing out if we bring them all something.
Great! Let's not waste anymore time hanging around here! What do you want to eat? I'm sure we'll find some interesting grub between the two of us!

Happy holidays!
What? I should go to bed early because Santa Claus is coming?
Don't be silly! I'm not a kid anymore! I can't believe you...

This is a special time of year, (Captain)! Take this firecracker!
Hehe. I made it myself. Just setting it off will fill you with cheer!
You know, back when I first started messing with gunpowder, this is the kind of thing I wanted to make.
My sister Cucouroux loves this time of year. If she were here, I'm sure she'd love setting off some fireworks.
Anyway, I hope we can all have some fun and celebrate the season together!

Oh! (Captain)! Are you on your way to the kitchen too?
Aye! I thought I'd help out with the all the cooking they're doing for the holiday feast.
We've got a lot of crew members who are geniuses in the kitchen, but more importantly, we've got a lot of crew members...
And I can help with the simple things at least! It's time to use the skills my mom taught me!
Besides, I mean... When it comes to cooking, there aren't many surprises to scare you...
Aye! Let's go and give them a hand!

Oh, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
Sorry about the table being a mess and all.
I just didn't know which wrapping paper was best for my present.
Hehe... This year I'm sending mommy and daddy a gift! Me and Cucouroux decided on it!
And I want to make mommy and daddy as happy as possible, so I'm even being really picky with the wrapping too!
(Captain), would you help me pick one? I'm not so sure I know which one of these is best...
Oh, thank you! With your help I feel a hundred times more confident!

Gotta lay low. Gotta be stealthy.
Bah? Hey, (Captain)! What gives? You can't just call out to me like that. Gonna give me a heart attack!
Er. You can stop apologizing now...
Eh? You wanna know why I was sneaking around?
Well, uh... I was thinking 'bout getting Tweyen a present. Brighten up her day a bit, you know?
You bet! Plus, she gave me my present early this year. So this is also a thank-you gift.
I want it to be a surprise but... You know how Tweyen's got a sharp pair of eyes on her?
So the plan's to go shopping—and be real stealthy about it.
And, (Captain). I'd appreciate it if you kept all this a secret from Tweyen.

Hey there, holiday-goer! I made the crew something special for tonight's dinner!
It's no match for a dinner at the castle though! Heeheehee!

Wow, there's so much food here! Teehee, the castle dinners were nice, but enjoying a carefree meal with everyone is great too!
I mean, think about it. You'd be nervous too if you were sitting at the same table as the lord of the castle, wouldn't you? No one uttered a peep!
But someday I'll become a world-famous acrobat, and everyone in the castle will cheer for me!
Ahaha! I can do it, because Lyria's looking forward to my performance!

Teehee! Happy holidays!
You know what? I went out and prepared something big for tonight.
It wasn't easy, but I had enough connections to get in touch with some royal chefs!
Heehee. Everyone's in for a big surprise. Don't worry about money. I've got it all covered!
So make sure you eat and party hard tonight! Peace!

Oops, did I wake you?
Guess I wasn't moving with the catlike tread I thought.
What am I up to? Being Santa, of course!
I've got a present to leave by everyone's pillow.
How did I get in? Haha! No lock can hold the great Carmelina!
I used to dabble in escape artistry, so this was nothing!
And here's your present! Do you like it?
I'm glad to hear that! Well then, gotta visit the next good kid on my list.
Oh, and before I forget...
Happy holidays, (Captain)!

Hey, (Captain). Got a bit?
You know, I'm planning to play Santa again this year.
And I was wonderin' if you wanted in.
The two of us'd leave presents by everyone's pillows—and put a big old smile on their faces!
Don't you worry. I'll teach ya how to pick locks and sneak into the rooms like a regular thief.
So, feeling up to it?

Haaappy holidays! Hey, (Captain), let's party with the crew!
As acting captain, I made a reservation at a restaurant for us!

(Captain)! You know how good I've been this year?
How 'bout letting a goody-goody like me be captain for a while? You can make it my present!
Just leave everything to me! No one'll even know the difference!
No? Tch. Party pooper!

Heya, (Captain). Big party tonight, huh? While we wait...
Ta-da! Check out this fancy cake I bought!
Hehe, you and I are gonna pig out in luxury. Sometimes you gotta spoil yourself, you know?
Man, tonight can't come fast enough. It's gonna be the bomb!

Carren's Voice: Sure! Come right in!
Carren:(Captain), what's up? You want to go shopping for the party?
Okay. I'll get ready in a jiffy.
It's cold out, right? I'll need to apply some magic to my socks to keep them warm.
Don't call me a wussy! If I don't do this, I might get frost burn!
You know what! Don't make me say I won't go shopping with you!
Hehe. As long as you know.
All right, let's head out!

Look, (Captain)! See the ornaments sparkling on the tree? I made them!
Heh! Starting to see me in a new light? I have studied magic, you know. It's easy peasy making things like that!
(Hehehe! If I can keep winning people over, soon I'll be acting captain in name and reality...)
(I made a bunch of other ornaments too! I'll hang them all around the ship and show everyone what I can do!)
Wh-what's that, (Captain)? No, I'm not hiding anything at all! Let's enjoy the holidays with everyone, okay?
Okay, back to decorating! If you have time, feel free to lend a hand!

It's cold out, right? I'll need to apply some magic to my socks to keep them warm.
Don't call me a wussy! If I don't do this, I might get frost burn!
You know what! Don't make me say I won't go shopping with you!
Hehe. As long as you know.
All right, let's head out!

Look, (Captain)! See the ornaments sparkling on the tree? I made them!
Heh! Starting to see me in a new light? I have studied magic, you know. It's easy peasy making things like that!
(Hehehe! If I can keep winning people over, soon I'll be acting captain in name and reality...)
(I made a bunch of other ornaments too! I'll hang them all around the ship and show everyone what I can do!)
Wh-what's that, (Captain)? No, I'm not hiding anything at all! Let's enjoy the holidays with everyone, okay?
Okay, back to decorating! If you have time, feel free to lend a hand!

I would like to know why you are hanging curios on a tree brought in from the outside. What is the point?
You say it is in preparation for a celebration. Interesting.
But why choose such an ordinary tree when your goal is to make this room look festive?
A tree that is naturally populated with blossoms would have saved you from unnecessary decorating. You are being inefficient.
Why are you handing me ornaments? Is this your way of asking me to help?
Hmm. Active participation may allow me to understand the reasoning behind this inefficient behavior.
Very well then. I will provide assistance.

Tis the season, (Captain).
And what a great season too. Everyone looks so happy, and they've having so much fun.
Have you decided who you want to spend the day with? Wait, me?
Don't be silly. You'll have to wait at least ten more years for that! But I'm glad you're thinking of me.
Well, maybe just for today, you can call me by my real name.

Hey. (Captain). Is there anything you want? I can steal it for you, you know.
As for compensation, I'd say... if you spent the whole day with me, that would suffice. Hehe.
Just kidding, of course. Hehe...
Though I might have been a teensy-bit serious about that compensation.

Here, I just made some hot cocoa.
How is it? The latte art isn't too bad, right? Lyria poured this one.
Hehe...
It's kind of peculiar. You know, that it's become normal to spend this festive night with someone special.
Maybe it's natural. After all, can you imagine spending this day alone?
(Captain), this is your fault. How naughty... Next year make sure you spend this time with me. Or else I'll turn you into smoke... Hehe...

You've been waiting all year, just like you promised.
Spending this holiday night with you is my idea of fun... I've been tapping my foot for the past couple of days.
Oh, lovely... Did you brew this cup of cocoa just for me?
Hehe, that's so thoughtful. I love a good cocoa, but the ones who make it for others are just as sweet.
Mm, nice and hot... And to thank you, I'll whip up my own special blend of cocoa.
What do you say to snuggling up while we sip our drinks?

Hey, are you free tonight by any chance? There's a place I want you to come to.
Where, you ask? Well, let's just say I'll be performing on stage.
You're interested? Perfect! Here's the ticket!
I'm gonna totally fire up the stage tonight! I hope you're looking forward to it. See you there! Buh-bye!

Looks like the presents for the kids have arrived. I remember how excited I used to get when I saw them...
Huh? Did I get anything?
What'll you do if I tell you? Well, whatever. I'll answer.
I got a score from a famous orchestra. I went with my mother to a performance. It was amazing, and I wanted to try to play what they did.
There, wasn't that a boring story? Usually little girls want stuffed animals or cute things.
It's a story that suits me? I guess you're right, thanks.
I still remember that song. Maybe I'll try playing it again for the first time in a long time.
If you're interested, I'll let you listen.

Have we bought everything we need for the party?
Right then—we'd better get back to the others.
The town really is lit up like the night sky.
Seems like the perfect place to knock back a drink and enjoy the scenery.
What? You wanna join me?
Sure, why not? But we're short on time tonight, so we'll have to take a rain check.
Still... Nothing says we can't take the scenic route back. If we walk along that ridge there, we should get a great view of the town lights. And a starlit stroll might be even more romantic than a drink.
Hahaha, I'm just pulling your leg. Come on, let's get a move on!

Cerberus

Cereberus: Happy holidays!
Mimi: Woof! A whole day of festive treats!
Coco: And if we bop that Santa guy on the head, he'll give us a bag full of loot! Woof!
Cereberus: Bingo! Today's a super fun day full of presents and food!
Mimi: Grr... Where's the grub? Woof!
Coco: Growl! Where'd that Santa guy run off to? Woof woof!
Cereberus: Heh heh! We don't have this kind of thing where we come from, so let's enjoy today to the fullest.

Mimi: This year we're sure to catch that Santa guy, woof! He'll make an excellent meal for the holidays!
Coco: His cries for help will be our present this year, ruff!
Cerberus: Master, do you hear the things these guys are saying?
Mimi: Woof, hey now! You care what happens to that old coot, woof?
Coco: If we can't have Santa, then we demand an equally scrumptious meal to feast on for our present!
Cerberus: Hee hee, it looks like they've really gotten into the holiday spirit this year.
Cerberus: Well, Master, you heard them—I can't wait to see what you'll surprise us with at today's party!

Mimi: Grr... This old coot's a fake!
Coco: Rrr... That old coot's a fake too!
Cerberus: Hm... All these Santas are impostors. We're as far from the real one as ever.
Mimi: They're not just fakes—they're not even scared of us! They're so arrogant, arf!
Coco: One even kicked me around like a ball, hohoho-ing all the way! Who does he think he is!
Mimi: The sham santas are toying with us!
Coco: It makes me so arfing mad! Let's tear out their guts and deck the halls with 'em!
Cerberus: Nuh-uh! If you do that, you'll get a spanking on the other side.
Cerberus: Hee hee! We're going to have a wonderful holiday this year. I hear there's going to be a wild party. Isn't that right, Master?

Mimi: When we woke up this morning, we found chunks of meat and a message. Somethin' smells fishy.
Coco: We didn't sniff anyone out last night. Must've been (Captain) here that did it.
Cerberus: Hmm... You sure it wasn't the man himself? Santa, I mean.
Mimi: That arfin' old man trying to start somethin'? This meat hasta be cursed or poisoned! He's probably trying to send us to you-know-where.
Cerberus: Santa wouldn't do anything like that. Come on, Coco, take a bite.
Coco: You believe all those rumors 'bout Santa, huh? Well, wouldn't hurt to give it a nip. You take some too, Mimi. Chomp, chomp...
With dubious looks on their little faces, Coco and Mimi dig into the chunks of meat ostensibly left behind by Santa.
Cerberus: So, food tasters, is it poisoned?
Mimi: Bwa! So you didn't trust it after all! I declare animal abuse! Barkin' unbelievable. Munch, much...
Mimi:Incorrectly translated in-game as Mimi, and should instead be Coco. Honestly. Chomp, chomp...
Cerberus: Hehe. But you're still eating.

You mean you've actually met Santa Claus before? Are you kidding!
That's incredible! You have to tell me everything!

Happy holidays!
The strawberries on this cake are placed off-kilter.
Ah, (Captain), there's cream stuck on your lips.

Oh! (Captain)! Happy holidays!
Right now I'm helping Lyria and Vyrn put up the ornaments on the tree!
Would you like to join us?
Look, isn't this one beautiful?
I got this specially ordered from Siero!
Let's make this a winter we'll never forget!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Take a look at this cake I bought!
See this intricately-sculpted candy figure between the frosting roses?
In the light of the candelabra, it glitters like a jewel.
When I spotted it in the bakery, I knew I had to show you.
Ehehe... You really like it then? That makes me so happy.
Well, let's cut everyone a piece. Of course, you get the piece with the candy figure, (Captain).

Why hello, (Captain). Lovely evening, isn't it?
Won't you sit by me? I find the tree most beautiful from here—see how the baubles shine.
Sigh... The sights are breathtaking, aren't they? It's a shame it only lasts for a season.
I wish I could snip out this scene and encase it in amber.
Or... Perhaps this moment feels so beautiful because it's fleeting.
Let's keep today as a memory, shall we? Ahh... I hope the holidays next year will be even more wondrous.

It's a holy night. And thus I'll host a splendid party at the castle.
I look forward to your presence. I've also prepared a present for you.
You cannot refuse. Consider this an expression of my gratitude for your everyday efforts.
What's in the present? If I were to reveal it, wouldn't that ruin the surprise?
Don't worry. There's nothing bizarre in it.
It's a product of the best quality, chosen by myself.
You may expect the best.

Tonight is the holiest of nights. Just as last year, I will hold a party at my castle.
Come and bring your crew.
Powerful aristocrats and monarchs from other nations will be in attendance.
Not a bad chance to raise your profile (Captain).
You have no interest in such things?
Humph. How like you.
In that case, what about all you can eat and drink?
Naturally, all the food and drink will be of the highest quality.I am confident you will have no complaints.
What do you mean, "is that all right?"
If the king decrees you may attend, who would dare bar your way?
Therefore come and make merry.

Happy, happy holidays!
I really enjoy putting up decorations...
Oof... If only I could reach the top of the tree to put the star on...

Hm? Hello, (Captain). Today's the most festive day of the holiday season...
But you still seem to be awake.
The night has only just begun, you say? I am not sure I understand.
As a holy knight, it is only proper to rest early and await Santa Claus's arrival from within the world of dreams.
I have already partaken of my holiday cake and brushed my teeth!
I bid you a good night, Captain (Captain). May you have a holiday evening full of good tidings and cheer.

(Captain), I couldn't help but notice a small package sitting atop my bed.
Would you happen to know anything of it?
Since tomorrow is the day we open the presents, I assume someone was kind enough to give me a gift. However...
With no labels of any sort to say who it's adressed to, I can't help but worry there's a chance it's not meant for me.
What?
Y-you're the one who left it for me? My!
The adult's supposed to give the child the present, not the other way around!
Grufflesnicks... With this, my price as a grown-up is all but gone!
I-I'll have to sleep early tonight! Tomorrow can't come soon enough!

(Captain), happy holidays!
Baotorda and Sevastien are preparing a meal for us this eve!
Hehe... I'm looking forwards to this night.
Lyria and Vyrn also seem very excited for this evening.
Unlike the carnage on the battlefield, this moment of peace is something I would not trade for the world.

Hmm, hmm, hmmm!
Oh, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
What's the source of my high spirits, you ask?
As a matter of fact, Baotorda invited me to join him for dinner this evening.
And when he did, I caught a whiff of something sweet!
I'm certain it was the scent of a freshly baked cake!
Baotorda is a master baker! Ahhh, I can't wait to get to the dinner table!
Wh-what? I'm not all atwitter! I'm merely looking forward to dinner with dignity and decorum!

Happy holidays.
Snow is beautiful because it's something that disappears without a trace.
However, it seems this winter will be unusually warm. (Captain) is slightly disappointed knowing that it is less likely to have a snowy day during the season.
Heh heh, could it be that you like snow as well, (Captain)?
(Captain) nods. With that, Chat Noir leads (Captain) outside.
Together, they go out to the deck, where they behold a scene of beautiful white snow.
What do you think? Surprised? I secretly prepared some extra snow, just in case.
Let's see who can build the bigger snowman, (Captain)!

A snowstorm has struck the Grandcypher overnight. (Captain) heads out the following morning to clear the snow.
However, instead of a blanket of snow, the entire deck is covered in a thick layer of ice.
Happiest of holidays, (Captain). A bit chilly, isn't it?
What do you think? A world of ice, illuminated by the morning sunrise. Simply captivating, if I do say so myself.
How did I do it? Hehe... Let's just call it a holiday miracle.
Oh, you can't skate? Don't even sweat it. I'm sure you'll be gracefully gliding in no time.
Don't be afraid. Here, take my arm if you wish. Now muster your courage and take the first step!

(Captain) attempts to clear the heavier-than-usual snow on the deck, but a loud bang is heard.
Well, look at that. You dodged all the snowballs I blasted your way. How charming, (Captain).
Hehehe. You don't seem to understand what's happening.
Those snowballs were from a machine that I prepared for just this moment.
Behold! Ice Assault!
(Captain), put all your presents on the line in this battle of the snow!
Hehehe... I'm cheating by using a machine? Then how about you call all your little friends to help you?
No one will get hurt. The snow used is quite soft and won't harm a soul.
Once you've prepared, let me know. Tonight will be the last stand for all the gifts!

(Captain) is in town, having heard about the appearance of calling cards with a cryptic message. "Tonight, I shall whisk away the familiar and the ordinary."
Suddenly, a silver sound reverberates through the air. The falling snowflakes begin to shimmer and gleam with all the colors of the rainbow.

Hehehe. How do you like this holiday miracle of mine?
Why would I go through the trouble? Well, I would think the answer was obvious.
I wished to show you a marvel—a spectacle even greater than the miracles of Santa Claus himself!
Chat Noir waves his wand once, and the trees begin to glow. The mysterious light illuminates the winding paths and streets.
Now, shall we set out, my dear? A most extraordinary evening awaits you!

We should go see the light show in town, Captain! And drink hot cocoa too!
I can't wait for tomorrow morning! I wonder what Santa's got for me!
Huh? Santa, the one who puts presents under the tree while you sleep.
I've never met him. But I'm a good girl, so he leaves me something every year.

It's snowing, it's cold, I miss my family, and I don't have a sweetie-poo on a day like this. What a total downer...
Least that's what I thought!
I mean, you've got so many peeps who are single on the G. Cyph. lol
Like, mad props to your l33t crew and all, but we're all totally on the same level when it comes to relationship status. lolz

Season's greets, Captain!
I wanna go holiday shopping and see all the shiny lights in town! Maybe we can even check out a cafe that's, like, all glammed up in cutesy stuff! (*>ω<*)
I'm all jazzed up thinking about this date with you, (Captain)! ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ
Hm? I'm talking about how you and I are gonna totally raise the roof tonight, (Captain)! (´∀`*)☆
Ah, but we'll have to be back before it gets too dark out!
I'm supposed to get a makeup kit from Santa—wouldn't wanna miss out on it!

Oh (Captain)! Season's greets!
Get a load of this! (*´∀`*) I made cake this year. Isn't it just totes adorbz?
I added some plum kelp jerky into the spongy mix, so it's got, like, a really funky taste.
Put it by your pillow, and Santa just might have a bite. ヽ(☆´∀`☆)ノ
I'm mega-thankful for jolly ol' Kris Kringle, and it's about time I did something to pay him back!

Happy holidays! So did you get any presents from Santa, kitten?
Ha-ha! I'm just kidding. I know you're not quite that young.
How about I keep you entertained instead of Santa this year?

Don't get me wrong. I don't have a problem with Santa. Seems a little pushy though, forcibly dropping presents on people.
Not that there's any harm in getting presents, I guess.
Seeing the smiling faces of children the world over must be all the payment he needs.
Not bad, right? A real win-win.
I just hope he has a safe night out... and doesn't get arrested for trespassing.

Well, my little kitten, you and the rest of the world are certainly feeling the spirit of the season. Looking at the splendor of the city, your heart just dances, doesn't it?
Our celebration at the Jewel Resort is quite the spectacle, you know.
How about it? Want to come peep at it? It'll be the most merry festival in all the skies.
Hehe. That's right: a merry celebration, grown-up style!

We did have an exquisite time at the Jewel Resort when it was tinseled up for the holidays—no question.
But you never got to experience the grown-up fun I had in mind, Kitten.
Do you know why?
Heehee, the reason's simple. It's because the two of us weren't alone...
If you catch my drift.
How about I show you how adults spend the holiday?
What do you say, Kitten?

Tis the season to be jolly!
(Captain), do you have any plans today? Because I was wondering if... you know...
You and I...
Aaah, this is too embarrassing!

Oh, hi, Captain! Um, I wanted to ask you if you were going to be busy tonight?
Ah, of course everyone'd be pulling you around here and there. You're Captain Popular!
It's not always easy being popular, I guess.
Well, okay, I'll just head back to my room, then. Don't get too crazy tonight!
Um, but if you're not too busy later, I'd like to spend some time together... you know, if you're free...

Hey, hey. It's the big day!
We gotta get together later and party it up, yuletide-style.
Ah, but you're probably super busy, so...
Huh? You'll be free? You're not just humoring me, are you?
Hehehe, then let's shake on it.
What? You think we should invite everyone else too?
O-of course! That was, um, my plan all along!
Better find a place that can fit all of us then.
Guess we can't use my room or your room anymore since company's coming...
All right, I'll take care of all the planning!
See ya tonight, (Captain)!

Um, hey! Hey, (Captain)!
Guess what? My parents sent me a holiday card.
They wrote that I should bring you back home with me for the holidays...
Aaagh, geez! Parents, am I right? They'll say just about anything.
I mean it's pretty obvious you're gonna be really busy around this time and all, so...
Plus I think I'd be on eggshells the whole time just knowing you're there in my house.
But, hey, I don't know... Maybe it's just me?
So... Like, if you kinda maybe sorta wanna hang out at my house with me...
What am I thinking! Of course this is all too sudden! Yeah, yeah! Next time! Subsequently! Future!

I'm sorry, (Captain). You came all the way to my house, but everything wound up a total mess.
I didn't think my parents would make such a big deal...
A-and, well... Don't worry about what Mother said, okay?
What? Don't you remember? She was like, it's about time you came for a formal greeting... Or something like that.
Umm... Seems like my parents have gotten the wrong idea about us.
B-but, uh... I didn't want to say they were wrong or anything. Or, er, I mean, if we really became like that, I would be pretty happy...
Uh. Ignore what I just said.
Basically! I want you to just forget everything and enjoy the party, okay?
Oh, right. (Captain), I almost forgot to say this to you.
Happy holidays!

The holiday is finally here.
If it's not too much trouble, would you mind helping me deck the halls for the party?

Tonight's festivities are right on schedule. The preparations will be flawless.
No, I can't partake in merriment. It's my duty as a maid to make sure everything is perfect.
I will use all my power to make sure all crew members have a wonderful, enjoyable evening.

Hm, this snowy backdrop is perfect for a holy night like this.
It's forced me to give up my hunt for a succulent turkey for tonight's dinner, but even I can't deny the beauty of it all.
Imagine, if you will, the pale-blue figure of Lyria standing in pure white drifts, blowing on her fingers to keep them warm...
Teeheehee...

The sight of a beautiful young maiden frolicking on the holy night fills me with joy.
I'm happy I prepared so many ornaments so that Lyria could fully enjoy decorating the tree.
Look, she's waving us over. How sweetly she beckons...
A maid's duty is to prepare and facilitate, not to participate in celebrations...
But I'm only human. No one could resist such temptation. Hee hee.

Well. I suppose that does it for the holiday decorations.
We made quick work of the ship. I've the rest of the crew and their kind assistance to thank for that.
And, (Captain), your face shows every bit how delighted you are. As a maid, that does make me happy.
Though I must say, I've no great wish to tidy up once all the festivities are over.
Well, I just have to think of it as rifling through the leftovers and forgotten items of young ladies. That's not so bad, is it?
Really, if I find something good, I may be able to pocket it for my collection...
What's that, (Captain)? You're offering to help with the cleanup?
I appreciate the offer, but I'm afraid that I cannot entrust this task to another.
After all, it is my duty as a maid... Teehee.

Colossus

Vyrn: So does anybody know where Colossus went?
Lyria: Um, I think it went searching for a tree we could use for the holidays.
During the most wonderful time of the year, (Captain) and the crew wait for Colossus to return from its trip outside of town.
Eventually the sound of people shouting in surprise accompanies heavy footfalls as the iron giant comes into view.
Colossus: ...
Vyrn: Wh-whoa! That's way too big, don'tcha think!
(Captain) and company are taken aback by the massive tree slung over Colossus's shoulder, its length longer than the iron giant is tall.
Lyria: Ahaha... You're really excited for this, aren't you?
It seems that the tree was dug out carefully with the intent to return it to its original home afterward. For now they carefully place it in a pot.
Vyrn: Haha, the townspeople are in for a big surprise! But first we got our work cut out for us decoratin' something this size!
Everyone tackles the task eagerly, each using a ladder to climb up and place colorful ornaments over the tree's many branches. Soon enough they have a holiday tree fit for the season.
Lyria: Okay, the only thing left now is to put the star on top! We're counting on you, Colossus!
Colossus: ...
It takes the offered star from Lyria and approaches the tree.
Boy: ...
Colossus: ...
But upon noticing the gaze of a boy nearby, Colossus instead offers the star to him. He happily takes the ornament and scampers into Colossus's hand where he is lifted up to the top of the tree for the finishing touch.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Do you know the holiday folktale where a saint blesses all the children? How old were you when you stopped believing in it?
Me? I still believe it!
My job as a ranger places me in a difficult position. I have to fool not only others, but myself as well.
It's all too easy to lose myself in the midst of it all.
To retain my sense of self, I try to make the best of these festivities.
Let's enjoy the holidays together, (Captain).

(Captain), this eve is the holy night, isn't it? I have a proposition for you.
I was planning on dressing as Santa Claus and giving out presents to all the little children, but...
Something doesn't add up. There are just too many children to visit.
That is where you come in. I require your assistance...
What? You will?
Your word is worth a lot to me. Thank you. I appreciate your help.
Hehe... Rest assured. I will save your present for last.
But you must not share our secret with any other crew members.
The children would lose their minds and all would end. That is how dangerous and confidential this mission is.
The dreams of the children must not be destroyed. No information can be leaked to them...
I am glad you understand. You have made a wise choice.
Let us enjoy this night, but don't be late. Hehe...

It's such a beautiful winter night, (Captain).
A quiet snowfall, piles of delicious food, and the exchanging of exciting gifts...
The ladies especially are in a holly, jolly mood around this time of year.
I can't count the number of times a lady had tried to get my attention as I strolled through town.
But since I've already made plans to spend time with you and the crew, I had to turn them all down.
Or should I say it's you who wants to spend some special alone time with me?
Ahaha, just kidding. Come, let's hurry to the party.

Who would have thought we'd actually be able to spend this holy night alone together?
I didn't, and certainly not for this reason.
That's not to say I'm complaining about having to prepare for the party with you.
But this is a good opportunity to enjoy the time we have to ourselves.
What do you think? How would you like to spend a special evening together?
Very good attention to detail, (Captain). Yes, that's the same line I used last year, meaning it's a joke.
I suppose I can't use the same trick twice and hope it works.
Heh. The same goes for anybody who tries anything on me.

(Captain), (Captain), it's almost time! Santa Claus is on his way!
I love that big bearded guy almost as much as I love my dad!
Why? Well, I wrote a letter to Santa way back when.
What did I ask for? A kind older sister, and a cute younger one. And Santa delivered!
That's why I stopped asking the guy for presents. Gotta make the rest of my dreams come true on my own!

Hmm... Will it snow today? What do you think?
You know what'll happen if it snows, right? Santa Claus will have such a tough time delivering his presents.
I'm going to leave something by my bed. But it'll get cold...
What if I stay up all night making soup and then serve it to him when he comes?
Hm? Yeah! I always make something for him when he comes.
I have to show my appreciation! He's the reason I have a little and big sister!
I just gotta leave him something to say thanks. Hehe!

(Captain)! Sorry, I've gotta go out for a little. I'll be back before the eve though!
Camieux and I are mailing a gift to our parents.
Because Santa only gives presents to kids, right? So we thought we'd make sure they get a present too!
We really struggled to think of something to give them up until the last minute...
But now we're going to have Siero deliver this.
I hope it gets to them in time. Rats... We really waited till the last minute...
Okay! Gotta go!

I'm back from my trip, (Captain)! Phew, I can't believe I actually made it in time for the holy night feast with the crew!
Thanks for letting me, Camieux, and Silva spend our island's holy night with our family though!
Dad, Mom, Uncle Dan, and all the other gunsmiths working at the alloy foundry were super happy to see us!
I have some snacks that Mom and Dad gave us too, but I'll share those with everyone during the feast.
Oh! Before I forget! Me, Camieux, and Silva made some party crackers while we had the chance!
Let's crack them open at the start of the feast and get things started with a bang!

A little bird told me we're havin' a party tonight. Hm, I'm as nervous as a cat...
Since I never had many friends, I had little reason to follow the herd. I'm not sure how I'd act at parties...
You'll be with me the entire time! Woo-hoo, you just made my day!

Ehehe! We get to trade presents today, (Captain)!
Well, here's mines... Ta-da! A plushie to put over head!
I bought it from my favorite store! It's so cute!
It loos nice on you! Let's roar together! One, two...
Rawr! Rawrawr!

Much cake... Such wow... Don't need a lion's share; I'll just have this one piece!
Chomp... The exquisite whipped cream on top of the spongy texture is so fine...
Ah, (Captain)! Look at all this yummy cake! Here, you can have your pick of the litter!
Wait, this is supposed to be for the party later?
Grr... My fault for getting ahead of myself...
It's a shame we can't get high off the hog together, but I'm to blame. I'll just have to bear with the guilt—and like a bear I will!
Huh? You'll give me half? But that's supposed to be your portion!
Teehee. You're so good to me, (Captain)... Thanks...

(Captain)! Happy holidays!
I just heard something neat! Good kids get presents on the eve of the big day!
I forgot who, but...
There's someone who hands gifts out!
And I decided I'm getting one too. But I'm not sure what yet...
A limited-edition iron ball... Or maybe a new plushie for my head...
Huh? You'll let me choose?
Hurray! That makes me feel so warm and fuzzy, (Captain)!
Teehee... Thanks!

What is the meaning of this! What kind of person would do such a thing?
We prepared a holiday feast for Lord Rivera and the others, but it's all been eaten! We must apprehend the monster responsible!
Ah... Pardon me, Lord Rivera, but you have a little cream on your mouth. Let me get that for you.

Nrgh... What an outrage! What a folly!
Last year, someone ate the feast I prepared for Lord Rivera...
And I've been foiled this year as well! The gifts have all been stolen!
(Captain), we must apprehend the culprit!
Hm? Lord Rivera? What's that cushion in your mouth?
Oh my! You retrieved it from the thief already? You work quickly! I should take notes!

(Captain)... What should I do?
A few moments ago, one of the younger members of our crew gave me a special homemade cake...
But I cannot eat it! How could I possibly devour a cake shaped exactly like Lord Rivera's exquisite face?
But I can't allow my fellow crew member's efforts and good intentions go to waste! I couldn't bear seeing a frown on that precious face! What must I do to pass this torturous trial?
Aghhh!

Agh! How terrible!
I went to decorate the tree to make the younger crew members happy...
But look under the tree. Someone's pulled down all my ornaments!
(Captain), help me search for the parties responsible! I'm sure that they're somewhere around here...
The scent of tree is coming from... If it isn't Lord Rivera and the others!
I can't believe... They're volunteering to serve as replacement ornaments? Aah, how merciful they are!

Okay, every window is shut. I also made sure to patrol the perimeter of the room as an additional safety measure.
That should just about do it. Now the youngsters in the crew can be assured of a safe holiday.
Hm? Lord Rivera? Why do you seat yourself before the fireplace?
You're watching guard to make sure no intruders come in from the chimney?
How gracious you are, Lord Rivera! Ah, your foresight never fails to impress!
Hm? You wish to take your rest now?
Worry not, for I will be here to stand guard in your place. Please enjoy your nap.

Last year, someone ate the feast I prepared for Lord Rivera...
And I've been foiled this year as well! The gifts have all been stolen!
(Captain), we must apprehend the culprit!
Hm? Lord Rivera? What's that cushion in your mouth?
Oh my! You retrieved it from the thief already? You work quickly! I should take notes!

(Captain)... What should I do?
A few moments ago, one of the younger members of our crew gave me a special homemade cake...
But I cannot eat it! How could I possibly devour a cake shaped exactly like Lord Rivera's exquisite face?
But I can't allow my fellow crew member's efforts and good intentions go to waste! I couldn't bear seeing a frown on that precious face! What must I do to pass this torturous trial?
Aghhh!

Agh! How terrible!
I went to decorate the tree to make the younger crew members happy...
But look under the tree. Someone's pulled down all my ornaments!
(Captain), help me search for the parties responsible! I'm sure that they're somewhere around here...
The scent of tree is coming from... If it isn't Lord Rivera and the others!
I can't believe... They're volunteering to serve as replacement ornaments? Aah, how merciful they are!

Okay, every window is shut. I also made sure to patrol the perimeter of the room as an additional safety measure.
That should just about do it. Now the youngsters in the crew can be assured of a safe holiday.
Hm? Lord Rivera? Why do you seat yourself before the fireplace?
You're watching guard to make sure no intruders come in from the chimney?
How gracious you are, Lord Rivera! Ah, your foresight never fails to impress!
Hm? You wish to take your rest now?
Worry not, for I will be here to stand guard in your place. Please enjoy your nap.

Danua: Happy...
Hansel: Danua wants to wish you happy holidays!
Danua: Hee hee hee... Let's play...

Danua: Cake...
Hansel: Oho. It sounds like Danua wants to eat that cake over there, (Captain).
Gretel: Watch it, Danua! If you eat nothing but sweets, you're gonna start putting on weight!
Danua: No...
Hansel: Hmm... Danua insists she won't.
Gretel: Yes you will! Let's exercise first! Come on!
Danua: Don't wanna...
Gretel: Don't make that face at me! (Captain)! You shouldn't spoil Danua like this!
Danua: Captain...
Hansel: What do you want to do about this, (Captain)? The decision is yours.

Danua: Cookies...
Hansel: Hm... Hm... Danua's happy that the cookies are ready!
Gretel: These taste great! Thanks for helping me, (Captain)!
Danua: Take...
Hansel: Really now?
Danua wants you to have one, (Captain).
Danua: Take...
Gretel: Stop that! If you give all your cookies away you won't have no more to decorate the tree.
Danua: No...
Hansel: Danua's saying she won't run out. (Captain) can decide how many Danua eats.

Danua: Orna...
Hansel: Mhm... Yes, yes... Danua's saying she wants you to look at her hand-made ornaments for the tree.
Gretel: She put together little dolls of me and Hansel. Aren't they cute!
Danua: (Captain)...
Gretel: Hm? Is this a doll of (Captain)? It's a spitting image of the captain!
Danua: Me...
Hansel: Danua made one of herself too so that we can all be together on the tree.
Gretel: Hey now, (Captain), no need to get so embarrassed. We all like being together, right?
Danua: Heehee!

Danua: Snow...
Hansel: Hm, hm... Danua said the snow's starting to fall.
Gretel: Whoo, what a lucky holiday season it's gonna be! I can already feel it!
Danua: Outside...
Hansel: Huh? Aah... (Captain), she's saying she wants to play outside with you in the snow.
Gretel: Danua's always loved making snowmen! And with this much snow, we can make a jumbo-sized one!
Hansel: But it's really chilly outside. Make sure you warm yourself up before heading out, Danua.
Danua: Sca...
Gretel: (Captain), Danua's got a scarf to help keep you warm. We can go out there as soon as you put it on!

Holiday presents... How nostalgic.
When I was little, my father gave me a beautiful jewel encasing a snowy night sky.
I still treasure it more than anything else in the world.

Look at all those pretty lights! It's as if the city's decorated with gems!
I think I can use this scenery as a motif for new accessories!
Inspiration is everything! I'd better get to work while it's still fresh in my mind!
Gems polished during the holiday season contain the greatest magical power.
You'll be the first to see the accessories when I'm done, (Captain)!

I did it!
Ah, (Captain)! Take a look at this! It's the best ornament I've made yet!
I made it using jewels fashioned in the shape of snow crystals.
Which cost me a pretty rupie, but I don't mind.
I prefer to enjoy my holiday seasons!

Oh, (Captain), what timing!
You see, I'm making ornaments to hang up on the tree.
They're silhouettes of our friends aboard the airship cut from gemstones.
This is Lyria... This is Katalina...
And here's you.
I think they turned out pretty well, but I wouldn't mind a second opinion.
Teehee, if you like them, that's all I need to know.
They would look grand hanging high up in the top branches. Will you help me get them up there, (Captain)?

(Captain), get a load of this giant turkey!
I mean, just look at how plump it is! I found it while shopping in town earlier.
Though it did cost me a pretty rupie...
But I guess a bit of expenditure's to be expected for an occasion like this.
After all, nothing beats roast turkey for the holidays. Hehe.
We'll be having it for dinner tonight. It's gonna be great.

There's something I'd like to discuss with you, (Captain). You've noticed that we have quite a few children onboard the ship, haven't you?
I was thinking about dressing up as Santa and handing out gifts to the kids.
What'd you just say? We've got the real Santa, so we don't need some old man imposter?
How dare you! There are two things wrong with that!
First of all I'm still in the prime of life, and you'd do well not to forget that!
And secondly, Santa isn't real—
Gwah! Oof! Ugh!
Pwaaah!
What was that for, (Captain)... Huff... I thought I was going to die...

Rrrgh... (Captain)... Season's... Ngh... Greetings... Urk!
Ah... As you can likely tell, my body's in quite a lot of pain.
An embarrassing story, really... It happened yesterday when I helped hunt for tonight's supper.
I must've strained myself too hard, because I can barely move today!
I was just so excited to see the children happy... But it appears I must have gone a bit overboard.
Bah, don't mind me though, (Captain). As long as you're having a good time, that's all that matters.
Did you enjoy the meal? If so, I'd say it was all worth... it... Yeowch!

Hah hah hah! This is quite the tree, don't you think?
I wanted to see the surprise on the faces of you and the kids in the crew, so I decorated it last night.
What do you mean? It was for the boys and girls. A little task like this isn't a burden at all, but...
R-rrrmph...
Haugh!
Maybe I used some muscles I normally don't... Because in a single instant, my body started crying out...
And I couldn't move at all, so I spent the night here.
(Captain), I do apologize, but would you mind carrying me back to my quarters?

(Captain)! Can I have a moment of your time? I must tell you of a great miracle that has happened!
When I woke in the morn, I found by my pillow... A gift from Santa!
Oh, my apologies! I've been carrying on in the most undignified manner. I was very eager to share my joy with someone, see.
But I get ahead of myself. I haven't even glanced at the contents. Let me open it now.
! Why, this is... A ticket for a shoulder massage? Oh? It appears there's also a letter. Let's see here...
"Hey, pops! Man, you always look like somethin' the cat dragged in! Well now, you can just say the word, and I'll give you a shoulder rub, 'kay?"
Hm? I say, (Captain), was Santa Claus always one to speak with such frivolity?

Wow, the city lights are so beautiful tonight. Teehee, spending the day with you makes me feel like a rebel. Why? Well, I was always decorating the altar this time of year when I was still a maiden. But here I am enjoying the day with you, Captain. I wonder how everyone's doing at the altar. Anyway, I have a present for you. I hope you like it!

Ouch...
I made cake for the holiday party, but I accidentally burned my hand a bit when I was taking it out of the oven.
Hehe... Guess I should've been more careful.
Ah, it's all better now... So you can use curative magic, huh? Thanks, (Captain).
Hm? You want to know what kind of cake it was? Nuh-uh, too early for that. Teehee, you'll have to wait until the party.

Okay, the sponge is about to cool down.
(Captain), what toppings would you like on the cake?
Apple, cherry, and orange? Okay, I'll add some strawberries for myself. Let's see, how should I cut this...
First I need to place the fruit and apply whipped cream. Hehe, just a bit longer.
Hm? Whipped cream? Of course I can make it.
Like this...
Okay, I cut the cake into three pieces of the same size. I've been practicing this recipe every day, you know—
Wha! Wouldn't it be more enjoyable to take a look at it before biting in, (Captain)? Sigh...
So how is it? Should I make another one? Haha.

I love seeing all the holiday decorations in town. It never gets old.
Sparkly lights, jolly music, and people in a merry mood...
Brr, it's getting cold. I wonder if it'll snow.
Um... Is it okay if we hold hands?
My fingertips are freezing...
...
Ah, much better.
Thanks for keeping me warm, (Captain).

Happy, happy holidays!
What a fun-filled day! Can I interest you in anything? Cake, perhaps? Just jingle the bell and let me know what you want, okay?
You know, Santa never visited me, but that's all right.
I still love celebrating the holidays with Claudia and everyone!

Hum, hum, hum. Hum... Oh, hello, (Captain).
Couldn't wait to see me? I knew it! But now's not the time yet.
I'm working hard to make tonight's feast and cake extra special, so please wait just a tiny bit longer.

Wow, it's really piling up. The view outside is truly becoming a winter wonderland!
We had snow where I was from too, but as a kid I tried so hard to avoid the cold. It didn't leave a nice impression on me.
Now that I look at it again, it really is quite pretty. Winter nights full of holiday cheer are nice, but I don't mind these quiet moments either.
It makes me happy knowing I can serve you on your journey, (Captain).

Shall we cut a slice of cake, Master? Do you want seconds of anything? Can I top off your drink?
If there's anything more you want, please don't hesitate to tell me, and I'll get right on it!
Yes? Two large stockings, you say?
Ah! You need something for Santa to stuff presents in!
Understood! I'll have them for you in no time!
Hm, you did say two, right? Why do you need two?
One's for me?
You want me to ask Santa for something too?
Teehee, thank you. In that case I'll hang my stocking right next to yours!

Come and have a peek at this splendid cake! The crew and I decorated and decorated to our heart's content, and it turned out so very colorful!
I also had help fixing the other dishes, and I believe they came out quite well!
Well, if I were to speak frankly, I would've liked to prepare your meal all on my own...
But I had such fun cooking with the others, talking and laughing the whole time.
There is no such thing as too much merriment during the holidays, after all.
Still, I simply won't allow anyone else to spoon-feed you. Oh, please wait for me to attend to you, Master!

Dorothy: Happy holidays, Master! We're pulling out all the stops to make you a fantastic dinner!
Claudia: ...
Dorothy: Yeah, yeah, I know, Claudia! Don't worry—I'll keep the kitchen clean!
Claudia: Please do. Because this is a kitchen that we, as you put it, pull out all the stops to keep tidy.

Claudia: Coldest night... A beautiful flower frolics in the snow... Hehe...
Dorothy: Gasp! Master! Lyria's in danger. Don't let Claudia get near her!
Dorothy: I'm too busy preparing a meal, so I can't protect her myself!
Claudia: Always thinking the worst of people... I wouldn't hurt a fly. Honest.
Dorothy: Don't listen to her, Master!

Dorothy: W-why, Claudia! Whatever are you doing, sneaking about so late at night?
Claudia: Why must you speak in such an accusatory manner?
I was simply hoping to leave a present by Lyria's pillow.
Rather, might I ask what you're doing? I believe that hall leads to (Captain)'s quarters.
You could not possibly be meaning to steal into (Captain)'s bedchamber...
Dorothy: I-I would never! I only meant to slip a present in Master's stocking!
Dorothy & Claudia: ...
Dorothy: Claudia, I believe it may be prudent to simply act...
Claudia: As if neither of us saw anything, correct?

Hey, hey! 'Tis the season to be jolly!
How's the tree? How's the ornaments? Got the stockings ready?
Oh! Hope you have a nice big turkey in the works too!
Hm? Well how can I not be excited! Today only comes around once a year y'know!
I already have your present all wrapped up! Here you go! Don't open it till tomorrow!

Fa la la la la! La la la la!
Hm? What's that? You wanna know what I'm up to? Are you curious? Super curious?
Oh shucks! I guess since you asked, (Captain), I'll tell you then!
Well, you know what time of year it is! I thought I'd dress up as Santa and pass out some presents!
And now that you're in the know, you can be my little helper, (Captain)!
Now then! Let's make it rain with gifts! We're the stars of the show for tonight!

Heya, (Captain)! Been waiting forever for you!
C'mon, let's be Santas together this year! Just imagine the smiles on the childrens' faces! What do ya say?
Sturm? You know she'd never agree to do that! Believe me, I ask her every year.
A pity really too! I just know she'll look great in a Santa outfit.
But you won't let me down, will ya? I can count on you, can't I? Right?
Yes! That's the spirit!

(Captain)! Happy holidays!
It seems like it's that time of the year again for us to get to work.
We're going to dress up and pass out presents!
Hm? You're willing? That's perfect!
Wait... What is that brown clothing?
A reindeer? Me?
Hold on! I'm glad you took the time to get this costume for me...
But I wanted to be Santa! Just kidding...
Ahaha...

Santa's coming tonight! Aren't you excited!
Huh? What was that, (Captain)? Yes, I told you—I'm a full grown woman now!
What? Santa doesn't come for grown-ups?
O-of course I know that! What do you take me for!
No! I wasn't expecting Santa to come! I'm all grown up after all!
(Sob, sob. My presents...)

Why hello, (Captain). Happy holidays!
This year we had a splendid feast. Though, it's not as fantastic as any party my house has ever held.
You want... to know more about my parties?
Haha... Alright, I'll tell you.
In halls as large as ships, we partook of an extraordinary meal and... We had the most famous guests we could find!
Then... In the evening, my great grandmother would tell us a story...
Those times were so wonderful...
...
Oh no... It's nothing. Please don't pat me.
Everyone here is oh so kind. I really am... grateful to you.
That is why this night will also be great!
Oh... Please stop coddling me!

What? You want to put decorations on the tree? Allow me to assist!
The party will be evermore the better with sparkly things hanging to and fro.
Hm? This stone is beautiful! What would this fetch? A pretty rupie, I suppose...
What! How can that be... Is it really worth so little?
Well... I already knew that!
I only meant that this silly rock would easily be mistaken for something of more value!
Enough prattle. Hurry up and decorate the tree!

Look, (Captain)! It's snowing! It's just what we need for a festive holiday!
You think I'm making way too big of a deal about it? Well, I just thought seeing snow would lift everyone's spirits!
The snow piles atop the holiday tree with the sparkle of the holiday lights, and the children merrily make their snowmen...
It's as if the town puts on its face to delight and please all who dwell within it... Ah, how picturesque, don't you think? I read the scene in a book!
I am a lady after all! So it shouldn't come as a surprise that I find such joy in simply taking in sights and sounds! Rather than sully myself in the snow, I—
Huh? You want to play with me in the snow, (Captain)? And you won't budge until I say "yes"?
Haha, very well then! I suppose I can accompany you for a bit!

Hm. Santa may be on the way. I should hurry off to bed. What do you mean I'm not a kid anymore? Of course I am...

Since time immemorial, it is customary for children to sleep early on holiday eves such as this. You would be well served to follow.
You ask about my childhood? Hrm... I find it difficult to remember such things.
To forget requires time commensurate to one's experience. A span difficult to express in words.
If the passage of time is what makes someone who they are, what does it mean to forget...
Even now... there is much I do not understand.

Mm? What's this... You're still awake? You know what night it is. Children should go to sleep early on this night.
For children to grow, they should eat well and sleep well. You can play well and study well afterward.
Compared to the growth of adults, children develop exceptionally quickly. Do not neglect creating a basis for your own growth.
There are things that you can only accomplish when you are young. But you won't know this at the time.
What? You're no longer a child? Gahaha! Just what a child would say!

The night is upon us. And our stomachs are filled. May I suggest you return to your quarters to rest up, child?
Santa Claus may very well come by and leave you a fair helping of rupies after gazing upon your resting countenance.
Why Santa, you ask? That's a mystery for the ages.
Perhaps he means to be jolly. Or perhaps he has a deeper conviction.
Or perhaps he simply wishes to frolic with you. The truth is known only to the big red man himself.
But his endeavors over the years define who he is.
The beliefs in one's heart gives way to action. Which in turn further develops a sound mind and body. Everything goes hand in hand.
Which is why I ask you to turn in early, child. Getting a good night's rest regularly leads to strength of character.

A gift for the holy night. Take this, (Captain).
There are countless things one cannot recover, and countless things one must let go of in the journey through life.
There are also things one realizes the importance of only after they are lost.
They are all things that can only be understood when one looks back on them.
That is why it is wise to gain as many experiences as you can when the opportunity presents itself.
This peace and quiet is not something that can be easily attained. You would do well to appreciate it while it lasts.

Happy holidays to you too!
Don't worry, (Captain), just leave the cooking to me!

Mwahaha... I'm honored you chose me to make a holiday feast!
Everyone's going to love it! I stake my reputation as a cook on it!
Grilled chicken, roast beef, salads, assorted cookies, and cakes! Oh, I can't wait!

Check out this gorgeous pattern on my cleaver when I raise it up to the snowy moonlit sky!
I need to keep this massive cleaver in tip-top shape if I'm to make you the best food on this side of the skies!
I'll treat you to a super nice gourmet meal once I'm done sharpening this thing!

What! You really want to help me prepare the holiday feast?
Hehe. I understand that feeling.
I bet your homemade food will make the best present ever!
Hehe. And I'm proud that you've chosen me to be your sous chef.
Oh, we'd better get our aprons on.
Let's get cooking! We'll make an amazing dinner for our beloved crewmates!

Let's see... Next I need to prepare these... Oh, but before that I need to check on the stuff that's cooking over there...
Whoa! (Captain)! Are you here to help? You're a real lifesaver!
The more crew members that join, the more mouths I have to feed, so my hands are always full when it's dinnertime!
Hehe! Not that I'm complaining, of course! Nothing makes me happier than having everyone enjoy my food!
Now then, there's not much work left before we're done! Let's pick up the pace and feed our hungry crew!

What? You want me to make you roast chicken?
You punk... You think I'm going to do it just because it involves fire, don't you!
Humph... Yeah, fine. I'll make it for you since it's a special day.

Huh? What's so special about today? Humph. I see.
It's cold and it's dark. How can anyone call this festive?
Light up the night and make it warmer for you?
Yeah, I think you got me confused for a fireplace.
Tch. Persistent brat. Fine, come closer.
...

Gyahaha! Burn baby burn! Ohh yeah, there's a good girl.
Huh? Oh, (Captain), it's you. I was just getting the stove ready for tonight's dinner.
I'm thinkin' a nice juicy turkey cooked to perfection. Mmm, roastin' that baby is gonna feel so good.
And somehow my flames seem to be getting into a jolly mood as well. Ohh man, am I gonna enjoy this.

Whoa, what's this? Lemme guess: you tried to make a giant snowman and messed up?
Wha? This is supposed to be an igloo?
And you want me to get in there and help you start a fire?
We do that, and your igloo's gonna melt away.
Huh? You sure about this? All right, just don't blame me when the snow comes tumbling down on us.
Heh, I'm surprised your little snow hut is actually still standing.
(Captain), might as well come closer to the fire if you're feeling that cold. Relax—I like you too much to turn you into cinders.

Hey, (Captain). What're you doin' outside in the freezing cold snow?
A snowball fight with the kids? Here we are on this special night, and you're up to the same antics as always.
Huh? Hey, don't take off your coat just 'cause you're hot. That goes for you kids over there too.
If you're all sweaty, maybe it's about time to call it quits. There's chicken fresh outta the oven waiting for you.
Seems like a good time to start the party. I'll get some hot drinks ready while you change.

When you wander the streets on the year's most joyful night, you can always hear carols.
Whether they're inside where it's warm or out in the cold, everyone celebrates the occasion by singing.
I used to sing along by myself when I heard caroling, but I want to sing with my friends this year.
Why don't we all sing a song, (Captain)? I'm sure it will be fun!

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Everyone's enjoying the festivities, aren't they?
And that's why, um...
If it's okay... During the party, there's something I'd like to sing...
It's okay? Hurray!
I'll perform my heart out so this sacred night is a festive one for all!

The holidays certainly are chilly this year... I wonder if everyone's finished setting up for the party?
I'd like to play a song as soon as I get back to the inn, but my hands are so frozen I can't really move them...
I'm sorry... Could you give me a moment? I won't be able to strum the strings like this.
Huh? My hands? But why?
Wha! Y-you want to hold them and warm them up?
Th-this is a rather embarrassing...
But your hands are very warm, Captain...
Suddenly I feel like I could give my best performance ever. I'll be sure to make this party a festive one!

(Captain)? What are you doing awake? Can't fall asleep?
Ehehe, I can't fall asleep either. Maybe I'm still a little too excited from our holiday party.
I'm glad I ran into you though. It's almost like an early present from Santa Claus.
Oh, speaking of which, how about I play you a song before the day's over?
Okay! I'll play something nice and soothing to help you go to sleep.

More snow? I'm so tired of seeing snow.
But the snow today somehow feels special.
It must be because you're beside me, (Captain).
Sorry if that seemed a bit direct.
(Captain), let's just forget about everything happening outside and enjoy watching the snow for a while.

Santa Claus... The person who delivers presents on the holy night...
No, I'm not interested in Santa. I'm interested in his reindeer.
I read they're super fluffy and gentle creatures.
Hehe. I wonder how they really feel. I wanna touch one...
Can't it be nighttime already? Then I might be able to see one of them.
You don't need to ask! You already know I'm not going to sleep! This is my chance!

I didn't get to see any reindeer last year... Even though I waited up all night...
Hm? No. This yeah I'm not not going to wait. There's no guarantee I'll get to see them even if I do.
Plus, there's something else that I'm more interested in anyways.
Say, (Captain). Do you know anything about polar bears?
They're much fluffier and cuter than any reindeer.
I looked it up in a book, and it turns out they live around here.
So I'd like to go see one. (Captain)... would you come with me?
I'm still not used to going outside...
Is that a yes?
Thank you. Let's get going.
Hehe. I wonder what kind of animal it is. I'm so excited.

What? This stuffed animal is for me, as a present for the holidays?
I see...
Can I ask you a question? What animal is this?
It's a fox? So this is what a fox looks like.
Hehe, it's quite soft and cute. I almost feel compelled to embrace it...
(Captain), thank you. I'll take good care of this one.

Captain, is something going on? Everyone seems to be in particularly good spirits for some reason.
Happy holidays? I'm not sure I understand, but seeing everyone else having fun puts me in a good mood, too.
Care to tell me about these holidays of yours, Captain? I'm sure I'll have even more fun once I know the details!

You told me of what this night meant last year, (Captain).
So this year I know the proper greeting for the season.
Happy holidays!
Did I get it right?

On this night, the town sparkles like the starry sky.
I like that the darkness does not truly fall.
Not... Not that I am scared! But everyone can enjoy the twinkling lights.
So a bright night is best. That is all.
(Captain)... Why are you laughing?

I heard a mysterious elder dressed in red enters people's homes on this night every year.
I will not sleep. I will stand guard by the children's rooms.
What? The elder distributes presents to the children? Then... he is a good person?
I see. In that case, I should show my appreciation for his kindness. I still will not be sleeping.

Happy holidays to ya!
Ah! This here dinner spread is pretty tasty!
Wuzzat? I said the same thing last night? There's no shame in havin' a good meal two days in a row, ya know!

Heya, (Captain). I've got somethin' I need to ask ya. Have ya got a sec?
Ya might not have guessed it, but I've kinda got an eye for sweets.
So when ya cut the cake, could ya cut me a piece and bring it later?
If Apollo ever saw me doin' that, she'd give me an earful for sure.
Gahahah. I'd tell her to give it a rest, but I guess she's just watchin' out for me in her own way.

Whoa there... Now that's what I call a cake! What bakery did ya stumble upon?
Oho! Don't tell me you made it yourself! Well color me surprised.
Incredible... You can just make a cake whenever you're feelin' up to it?
You're really somethin', ya know that? I'll do anything I can to help—just make another one!

Hey, (Captain). You're gonna decorate a tree this year too, right?
Bahaha! I knew it. You always go big on these seasonal customs.
So anyway, I broughtcha one. A tree, that is.
You can't really enjoy tonight without a tree, now, can ya?
What? I'm in way too good a mood?
Dummy. When it comes to holidays, he who has the biggest blast wins. Didn't you know?
So let's party our hearts out, (Captain)!

A snowball fight in this freezin' weather? You youngsters are mighty lively.
Sorry, but I'm gonna pass. I don't have any energy when it's this cold. Old guys like me have trouble regulatin' their body temperature.
On that note, I think I'll head inside where it's nice an' warm to help with the holiday feast.
Huh? Well yeah, 'course I'm lookin' forward to it.
This is the night where I get to enjoy top-class grub and booze while admirin' a gorgeous tree. And there's even cake to top it all off.
Bahaha! Nothin' beats a holiday feast!

(Captain), is everything okay? It's surprising to see you come out to town alone.
Me? I'm shopping for the party later.
Anyway, would you believe how lively it is out here today?
Is this how it usually is during the holidays?
I find it a bit noisy, but not altogether unpleasant.
What I do like is the smiles on everyone's faces...
It's quite a beautiful sight in its own way.
There is so much charm to be found in this world.
Just as Gabriel and the supreme primarch told me.

Look, (Captain). The town is positively glittering. These kinds of decorations only come out around the holidays.
They're so lovely... What a wonderful way to celebrate.
I can understand skydwellers' desire to spend such a special occasion with someone they care about.
That wish has already been granted for me—here I am, walking side by side with you after such a pleasant shopping trip.
Haha... I suppose we should get back to the ship. I'm sure preparations for the party are finished. Everyone must be waiting on us.
Still, there's no need to hurry...

So it's the merriest day of the year. Ha! What a joke. Just because someone named the day doesn't make it special.
And only fools would go so far as to celebrate it. Peace is only temporary, and we have better things to do.
Still... I guess it's not a bad thing that people can enjoy themselves once in a while. But whatever.

Another merry day... Only because the night was longest on this day did someone decide to give it a name.
Fools are led astray by beautiful words and let themselves prance and hop.
I'm not saying it's wrong to relax now and then... I'm saying to keep that to a minimum.
Don't let yourself be another one of those idiots.

Just another excuse for people to frolic meaninglessly...
And yet some call this the holy night... How pretentious.
I suppose there are those who require such excuse to indulge themselves.
For them, this night must have significance.
Appreciation may be appropriate for those who cannot otherwise unwind in their daily lives.
However, there is nothing more inexcusable than unfettered merry. Even if it is the holiest night.

This is the day of the year when everyone on the ship can have a moment of rest and relaxation.
Therefore I suppose it's only fitting that some call it a holy night.
One could say the crew is only able enjoy this respite as a result of the achievements your daily efforts have wrought.
Enough with the vacant expression. Considering you're captain of this crew, all that should go without saying.
It wouldn't do to let it go to your head, but you should at least give yourself credit where credit is due.
The night is still young. I will take this opportunity to unwind briefly. You ought to get some rest as well.

So it's the merriest day of the year. Ha! What a joke. Just because someone named the day doesn't make it special.
And only fools would go so far as to celebrate it. Peace is only temporary, and we have better things to do.
Still... I guess it's not a bad thing that people can enjoy themselves once in a while. But whatever.

Another merry day... Only because the night was longest on this day did someone decide to give it a name.
Fools are led astray by beautiful words and let themselves prance and hop.
I'm not saying it's wrong to relax now and then... I'm saying to keep that to a minimum.
Don't let yourself be another one of those idiots.

Just another excuse for people to frolic meaninglessly...
And yet some call this the holy night... How pretentious.
I suppose there are those who require such excuse to indulge themselves.
For them, this night must have significance.
Appreciation may be appropriate for those who cannot otherwise unwind in their daily lives.
However, there is nothing more inexcusable than unfettered merry. Even if it is the holiest night.

This is the day of the year when everyone on the ship can have a moment of rest and relaxation.
Therefore I suppose it's only fitting that some call it a holy night.
One could say the crew is only able enjoy this respite as a result of the achievements your daily efforts have wrought.
Enough with the vacant expression. Considering you're captain of this crew, all that should go without saying.
It wouldn't do to let it go to your head, but you should at least give yourself credit where credit is due.
The night is still young. I will take this opportunity to unwind briefly. You ought to get some rest as well.

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Hehe... Katalina and I have been exchanging gifts since our days in the imperial army!
But this year, I got you something too, (Captain)! I hope you like it!

Teeheehee...
Hm? You're wondering why I'm so happy?
Eheheh...
I'm going on a date with Katalina today!
Katalina's all mine for the day! I couldn't have asked for for a better present! Eheheh...

Happy holidays!
What brings you here, (Captain)?
Katalina and I were making candles! Bunching together different-colored wax makes for really pretty ones!
Katalina's are the prettiest—as pretty as the seas of Auguste!
She said anyone is capable of doing it, but I have to disagree! I was almost moved to tears!
When night falls, I'm going to light up this handmade candle for a private chat with Katalina!
A dreamy fun time with Katalina awaits me tonight!
Oh, I can't wait!

Aha! There you are, (Captain)! I've been looking all over for you.
There's a party tonight, so I came to deliver your invitation.
Wouldn't I rather be spending time with Katalina, you ask?
Heh heh heh. I'm way ahead of you!
You see, the ones hosting the party are me and Katalina!
We're preparing everything, just the two us. So basically I'll get to spend the whole day with her!
It's going to super fun tonight, so I hope you come too.
Well, I'll be going now. I've got more invitations to hand out!
Then after that it's decorations and making foo—Oh no! Katalina! Don't start without me!

Hey, guess what! Katalina asked to me to go see the pretty lights in town with her!
An invitation from her is the best present I could ever ask for.
Ehehe, in a way she's my very own Santa.
Huh? You have a present for me, but it looks like I don't need it after all?
Ah, I just remembered! You're my Santa too, (Captain)!
R-really! Sorry, me forgetting was just a brain fart on my part... Besides, look at what I've got!
Ta-da! I made sure to get you a present too! Let's trade!

Happy holidays!
I heard an old man in red is coming to visit the kids in town today!
Sounds like a true warrior... I'd love to fight him some day!

What's wrong, (Captain)? You're feeling cold?
Then I'll warm you up... by making you quiver at the sight of these fists!
You should feel warmer once you start shaking... I hope!

Hear me out, (Captain). I've got a wish to make.
We're in holiday season—the perfect time to spend with our loved ones. You know what I'm sayin', right?
I want to spend the time off with you. Because you're the only one who can do me this solid. So you'll hear me out then? Thanks, (Captain)! You rock!
All right, here goes! I took out a few monsters just now, but I'm still itchin' for more!
Let's you and I heat up these ice-cold festivities with a good ol' fashioned romp!
Ooh... (Captain)! You're makin' me feel warm all over!

Deck those halls, (Captain).
I still can't forget that powerful punch you landed on me last year...
The fire within you hit me hard and spread throughout my body!
I want to get stronger, (Captain)!
Scratch that, I have to get stronger!
And I need you to get me there! So if you'd indulge me...
I challenge you to a holiday deathmatch!
Basically we're gonna bust it up all night long without getting a wink of sleep!

(Captain)! Do you hear that! The bells are ringing!
And those battle gongs are telling us to have a rematch! I'll get my revenge for last year!
This must be the blessing of the holy night! You hear them, right?
We're gonna settle this tonight!
Let's see your furious fists! Your screaming soul! We're gonna rock this holy night!

Oh, (Captain)! Today's the big day, right? That means, well, um...
Ahaha! This isn't like me at all... I just wanted to tell you that I'd like to spend the day with you!
Well? What do you say? C'mon, spit it out! Don't you dare say no!

Happy holidays, (Captain)! So where should we go?
Hm? Tonight's a special night, isn't it? You know, for a date? C'mon, the two of us are heading out together!
Hey, what's the hold up? Oooh, are you trying not to blush? Hehehehe.
All righty then, move those legs! Don't be so uptight!

Here I am, the unrivaled cutie of holiday cheer, Feena! I get to play Santa this year and give presents to all the good boys and girls!
So without further ado, I'll use these flower petals to see how good you've been.
What will it be... Goodie-goodie, baddie-baddie, super-goodie... Goodie-goodie, baddie-baddie...
Super-goodie! Oooh, good job, (Captain)!
Now, for this very well-behaved captain, I have just the perfect gift picked out for you!
I hope you're as well-behaved next year as you were this year! Hehehehe!

(Captain)! Mm, this is too much fun!
Nothing like a party to get the holiday cheer going!
Hey, what are you pouting for?
Wait, lemme guess! It must be because you didn't get to go out with me this year for the holidays!
Heh-heh-heh... You're in luck! I was just about to ask if you wanted to go our right now!
Slipping out of a party to enjoy ourselves can be a real blast too, I'll have you know!

Look, (Captain)! I'm decorating the deck with sparkly ribbons! Isn't it pretty?
I tied the ribbons to toy arrows and shot them with my crossbow to attach them to spots outside my reach!
Pretty neat, huh? Nothing's impossible for the brilliantly cute Feena!
Huh? You want to know how I'm going to take down the decorations if I can't reach them?
Oh... I didn't think about that. But just leave it to the invincibly cute Feena—I'll come up with something!
Well, time to get back to decorating! I'll let you know when I'm finished, so sit tight, okay?

Happy holidays!
Tonight? I'll be decorating trees with the children of Stardust Town while we wait for Santa.
How does that sound? Care to come along and lend us a hand?

Hm? What presents do I want? If I can protect the peace of Stardust Town, that's good enough for me.
The more special possessions I accumulate, the more sluggish my movement becomes. Not something I want.
Still... If you have something to give, give it to the children in town.
Huh? You want to give something to my sister? Together?
In that case... how about a stuffed animal?
I can't guarantee anything, but I think that will make her quite happy.

There's a winter party tonight for the children of Stardust Town.
Although I use party in a loose sense since we won't be surrounded by mountains of food.
Oh? You have presents for all of them? How nice of you.
You have a present for me as well? Thanks, but I think that's best left for the kids.
Well, if you insist that I open it, I won't push it any further.
This is a really sparkly party hat...
Yeah, it'd be pretty hard to get the little ones excited with how I usually look. Thank you for this.
If you have time, you should come to the party too, (Captain). I think the children would like to see you.

This year I'll be having a party with the children of Stardust Town. Well, that's what we do every year.
Here you are. This is for you.
It's a sparkly tricornered hat—the one you gave me last year. The children decorated it with colorful construction paper.
I think they did quite the job, don't you? Do you like it?
You're pleased I saved the hat you gave me?
It's just our way not to waste anything that could be useful. It's not like I kept it out of sentimentality.
Did I say something funny?
Well, never mind.
The children are waiting for you, (Captain). I trust you'll accept our invitation?

Happy Holidays. So you've decided to come to Stardust Town again.
Have you noticed, (Captain)? The children are practicing their songs for the party on the holy night.
The sound of singing, echoing all the way to the streets... Doesn't it give such a warm feeling?
It's peaceful moments like these that make me think how we need to get even stronger in order to protect this peace.
I've finished patrolling, so I'll be going back to where the children are now.
Come on, (Captain), let's hurry. Both the children and I have been looking forward to seeing you again!

This takes me back. I haven't celebrated winter festivities in decades...
Oh, I had so much fun then. My father was there, my mother was there... and that little girl too...
Oops, I didn't mean to dampen the mood. But I'm not sad at all.
Reminiscing with you about old times helps me enjoy the holiday.
I'm happy just like I was in my memories. Thank you, (Captain).

Listen, listen, (Captain)! I placed the star way up on top of the tree!
Back when I was celebrating with my family, they wouldn't let me help because I was too young.
I never knew how much fun decorating for the holidays could be!
Tonight's going to be super fun, (Captain)!

So we're having cake tonight...
Oh no, it's nothing. I was just remembering something from the past.
My younger sister and I loved strawberries on our cakes. We'd always fight over who gets what, which drove our parents crazy.
I was supposed to act as an older sister should, they said, and she'd end up winning the strawberries.
That really was such a long time ago. I was so serious about even small things like that back then.
What else will come back to me the next time I bite into a strawberry, I wonder?

(Captain)! Do you have any big wool stockings?
You don't? Hmm... Oh well, that's just how it goes I guess.
Did you forget what day it is? I wanted to hang stockings from the tree.
That's how you get Santa Claus to come visit or so I was told as a kid.
As you can see, I'm not a kid anymore—I'm a ghost. Does Santa even visit ghosts?
But it's still pretty exciting to think he might come, you know?
Oh, here's an idea. Why don't we go out and shop for stockings together?
We can buy some for everyone on the airship and really stuff the tree with stockings.
Heehee, I just know it's going to turn out bright and colorful.

(Captain), look at this!
I was walking around town when an elderly lady gave me these lovely cookies! She said it was a present for the holidays.
Meeting her made me think that maybe in another life I could have grown older and become just like her...
But I'll always be stuck in this child-like body.
What I can still do is give out presents though. I think that'd be nice.
Say, what do you think about coming with me to buy some presents for the kids aboard the airship?
Then Santa Ferry and Santa (Captain) can walk around surprising them later.
Hehe, it sounds fun, right?

Then Santa Ferry and Santa (Captain) can walk around surprising them later.
Hehe, it sounds fun, right?

Ferry (Halloween)

This takes me back. I haven't celebrated winter festivities in decades...
Oh, I had so much fun then. My father was there, my mother was there... and that little girl too...
Oops, I didn't mean to dampen the mood. But I'm not sad at all.
Reminiscing with you about old times helps me enjoy the holiday.
I'm happy just like I was in my memories. Thank you, (Captain).

Listen, listen, (Captain)! I placed the star way up on top of the tree!
Back when I was celebrating with my family, they wouldn't let me help because I was too young.
I never knew how much fun decorating for the holidays could be!
Tonight's going to be super fun, (Captain)!

So we're having cake tonight...
Oh no, it's nothing. I was just remembering something from the past.
My younger sister and I loved strawberries on our cakes. We'd always fight over who gets what, which drove our parents crazy.
I was supposed to act as an older sister should, they said, and she'd end up winning the strawberries.
That really was such a long time ago. I was so serious about even small things like that back then.
What else will come back to me the next time I bite into a strawberry, I wonder?

(Captain)! Do you have any big wool stockings?
You don't? Hmm... Oh well, that's just how it goes I guess.
Did you forget what day it is? I wanted to hang stockings from the tree.
That's how you get Santa Claus to come visit or so I was told as a kid.
As you can see, I'm not a kid anymore—I'm a ghost. Does Santa even visit ghosts?
But it's still pretty exciting to think he might come, you know?
Oh, here's an idea. Why don't we go out and shop for stockings together?
We can buy some for everyone on the airship and really stuff the tree with stockings.
Heehee, I just know it's going to turn out bright and colorful.

(Captain), look at this!
I was walking around town when an elderly lady gave me these lovely cookies! She said it was a present for the holidays.
Meeting her made me think that maybe in another life I could have grown older and become just like her...
But I'll always be stuck in this child-like body.
What I can still do is give out presents though. I think that'd be nice.

Happy holidays! Hey, can you gimme a hand with something?
Santa ain't getting away from me this time!

Santa Claus is really something... Not even Grampy can catch him!
But I'm not gonna give up! Not until I get a chance to ride that sled of his!
You want to ride it too, don't you, (Captain)? I bet flying through the sky on that thing feels awesome.
So will you help me catch Santa? Please? Pretty please?

Guess what I decided!
I'm gonna try not to capture Santa Claus!
Cuz if I catch Santa, then he won't be able to visit all the other girls and boys.
Sigh... I really want to ride in his flying sleigh though...
Yeah, I can fly already using magic. So what? It's totally different! The sleigh's cooler!

I've thought of a way to ride Santa's sleigh!
I just have to help Santa pass out presents!
I bet it's tough for him to pass out all those gifts on his own.
So I'll use my magic to deliver presents from the sleigh!
Like this!
There's no doubt that Santa will let me on this year!
I'd better start writing a letter to him now!

Hey, (Captain), do you think Santa likes chicken?
I was helping out with the preparations for the feast this year...
And it turned out really great, so I want Santa to have some too!
Santa's gotta be hungry from going around to so many places...
Hm? What's that? How it looks is important too?
I see! Leave it to you to think of that! You're right—it'll look much nicer wrapped like a present with a ribbon around it! I'll go look for one!
Once I find a ribbon, let's tie it around the chicken together, (Captain)!

Flesselles

Season's greetings!
That reminds me... This is the time of year for exchanging presents, right?
I'm sorry, but I don't know much about giving gifts...
I know! I'll tell you all about the mountains instead!
Whether it's about the animals or the plant life, just ask me anything!

Huh? I look sleepy? Well, yeah... You got me.
Last year was so much fun... And I was so looking forward to the party this year that I couldn't sleep.
After all, I love celebrating with you, (Captain)!
But don't worry! I got you a great gift this year!
All right, (Captain)! I'll see you later at the party!

Say, (Captain)! I heard that tonight is supposed to be the most stunning night of the year. Is that true? Huh? Not the most stunning but the stillest? Stillest... The stillest night... What's that mean exactly? Ohhh, I see... Because the children go to sleep, so the world grows quiet and mystical? In an innocent way? Hm... I think I know what you're saying. When I was a kid, my mom and pop would tell me stories about the mountain goddess that sounded a lot like that. I didn't really believe them at first, but when I finally met the goddess while standing on the mountain... Heh-heh! I'll tell you all about it later on tonight! Hey, that's a promise, (Captain)! So don't you go to bed yet!

(Captain), I have something I wanna ask you about.
You know the man who's supposed to come at night... Santa?
Is he really a he? Or a woman?
A man? Okay...
It's nothing... I was just worried because I heard that Santa delivers presents...
If Santa were a woman...
I'd be afraid to incur the jealousy of the goddess...
But if he's a man, then that's not a problem!
Phew... I'm so relieved. Now I'll sleep like a baby.

...
I've been having this strange sensation in my chest today. I just can't figure it out.
I thought that it would get better with you by my side, but just the opposite happened. It got worse.
I hate to do this since you're still so green...
But we must cross blades! Ready your weapons, (Captain)!

The night of presents... They say if you've behaved yourself throughout the year, you'll receive a present.
Hmph... How naive... How ridiculous... Utterly ridiculous...
(Captain)... Take this.
Do not misinterpret my intent. I didn't give this to you because you were a good child this year.
I'm making an investment. I am sharing a gift that will lead to your growth. Nothing more...
What are you smirking at...
Ugh! Now you've done it! Ready your weapon!

(Captain), I have a gift for you.
Humph... But this year I don't intend to hand it over without a fight.
You must first defeat me in battle! What do you say!
W-what! You don't need the gift if it means having to trade blows?
B-but wait! I've been preparing for this day for quite a while—and I mean to give you the gift either way—but, no...
I understand. My heart would hardly be in any battle against you on this holiday night.
Yes, all right... I'll just give you the present.
Now then, enough of your smirking! We'll spar just as soon as the holiday is through!

I see you've returned, (Captain). Where did you go?
Oh, you went out to buy supplies for the feast tonight? Isn't the town a bit far from here? You should have asked to ride one of my dragons there.
Hmm. Well, I suppose that served as decent training for your leg muscles, but...
Come here. I'll show you to the cave where my dragons rest.
It's cold tonight, and you could use some of their body warmth.
You don't want to miss the celebration tonight because you catch a cold. Keeping your body healthy is part of training too!

(Captain), happy holidays!
What are you planning to do for the holy night?
Me? Well, I'm going into town while it's still festive.
Huh? You'll go with me?
Heh heh, the truth is that I'd feel lonely if I were by myself.
So that would make me incredibly happy.
Ah! This is just like a date!
A date with (Captain) on the holy night... Let's have all the fun we can!

Freesia: There are couples everywhere. How can they shamelessly walk around holding hands like that?
Tomoi: Well, whaddya say we give it a try?
Freesia: Th-that would be too embarrassing. I'd rather die.
Tomoi: Your ear's droopin', Freezie. You're not being honest, are you?
Freesia: ...!
Th-that's not what it is! I'm just shivering from the cold!
Tomoi: Then I'll give you a hug to warm you up!
Freesia: Eek!
Tomoi: There. All warm and toasty, right?
Freesia: F-fool! This is even more embarrassing! Everyone's looking at us...
Tomoi: Forget about them. Just look at me.
Freesia: Tomoi...

Tomoi: Another holly, jolly holiday, huh... If only Freezie were here. Man, wonder how that'd go...
Freesia: What a beautiful tree.
Tomoi: Hits me right in the feels. Those lights are, like, literally lit!
Freesia: ...
Freesia quietly closes her eyes and clasps her hands in front of her chest.
Tomoi: Huh? You offerin' Big Greenie a prayer or somethin'?
Freesia: Yes. I pray that I can always be with you.
Tomoi: Haha! Why even bother prayin' for that?
I'm never gonna leave your side anyway! The only thing that can stop me is death itself!
Freesia: Fool. Even in death, we'll still be together, right?
Tomoi: Freezie...

Friday: Oh hello, (Captain)! Hey, would you take a look at this?
I'm writing Santa Claus a letter to let him know all about the wonders of Premium Friday!
He brings such joy to the skies. We should really give some back, don't you think?
And if Santa starts celebrating Premium Friday, I'm sure every kid on his list, and their parents, will get onboard!
Ahh, this'll spread the message for sure! I'm so excited!
All right, I'm off to deliver this letter!
FRIED SHRIMP, away!

Och, sae ye don't like bein' spoken to like a child?
Gahahaha! If ye ask me, ye're still just a fledgling!
But enough blatherin'! Here, have a taste of mah special steel candy canes!

Dahahaha! Pardon my steely stench, but Galadar Santa's here again!
Anyhoo, have ye been a good kid this year, (Captain)?
Oho, so ye have, eh? This calls fer a present from Galadar Santa!
What's that? Ye bet it's just a lump of cold steel?
Dahahaha! Right on! Nothin' but steel here!
But ye've got another thing comin' if ye think that's all I've got!
This is forged from the finest steel ye can find in my hearth.
With layers upon layers of steel coating serried upon it.
Dahahaha... A steel cake made by one of the steeliest men on this side of the skies!
No need to say another word! Go on and feast on my specially steely mille-feuille!

Dahahaha! Galadar Santa returns at last, tae answer the prayers of all the wee lads an' lasses!
I trust ye've been a good we'an this year as well, Cap'n?
Ohh! That's what I like to hear! Well then, ye've earned yer present!
What's that? You wannae know what manner of iron I have for ye this year?
Why... I do believe ye've come to look forward to my gifts!
Dahaha! Ye gladden me heart! An' I'll nae disappoint ye!
I tempered this especially for ye, (Captain)!
A dessert that one an' all can enjoy on this holiest of nights...
Galadar's Special Steely Puddin'!

Huh. Guess that's how it is.
Oh, (Captain)! Havin' a merry festival, I hope!
I plan on bein' Galadar Santa again this year, so I've made a grand present for all the we'uns on the ship!
It's a mammoth tree, forged tip to stump from the finest iron! Makes for a pretty solid holiday, eh?
What do ye think? The sparkle is perfect for the season, eh?
Normally people decorate the tree to add a little pizzazz, but when the tree itself is the star, well there's no beatin' that.
Everybody aboard the ship is gonna feel the holiday spirit when they get a load of this thing! Dahaha!

Happy Holidays.
I hear this Santa character delivers presents today.
If I can track him down, I wonder if I could make off with all his loot...

Is it that time of the year again?
It's easy to get carried away when you're feeling festive. You'd best be careful.
At the same time, we should be thankful for the opportunity to just kick back and relax.

Happy holidays, eh?
Wrong. I'm not celebrating anything here.
I was just taken aback by what a frivolous greeting that is.
Not that I'd go up in arms about it. You enjoy the holidays as you like, (Captain).

'Tis the season.
Everyone's at home cutting cake and celebrating the holiday with neighbors, not a concern in the world.
Back when I was a bandit, I never thought that I'd be spending the winter like this.
You say I seem giddy? Heh-heh, come on...
I was simply stating a fact. I suppose it might a bit touching though...

Humph... Looks like there's gonna be a holiday tree out in town this year too.
I just don't get how people can set up something so posh in front of everyone.
It's almost like asking all the thieves out there to come and rob you. Am I wrong?
Yet something about it is so heartwarming. Simply glancing at it brings a sense of joy somehow.
Er, don't mind me... I'm just mumbling to myself.

Humph... Why the hell is everyone getting so excited? It's just some dumb holiday thing.
What? I was invited to the celebration? Tch... Fine, I'll come along, but only for today!

You, (Captain). Is there anything you want?
Hey, don't get the wrong idea now! I'm just doing my part for the holiday season!
Hurry up already! We're going shopping in town!

You want a present? Have you forgotten already that I got you something last year?
It's your turn to fork over something this year. Need I remind you that we are of equal standing?
All right, it's time. You're coming with me. Huh? You think I'm pining for some alone time with you?
Oh, shut your pie hole! I'm just here to waste your time! And you're gonna eat it all up!

Humph... Why the hell is it snowing?
Is this what you wanted? A world of white?
It doesn't exactly set the mood, but it's not bad.

Hey, (Captain). I'm not made of time, you know. What did you call me out here fo—
Gyah!
Why you! You have some nerve!
Here I graciously answered your summons, thinking it was an invitation to a holiday feast, and you cravenly ambush me with snowballs.
So you wish for a duel fought with snow.
Of course, you realize this means war.
Prepare yourself, (Captain)! I will never surrender, and you shall receive no quarter!

Happy holidays!
What, (Captain)? Do I look like I'm having a good time?
Hehe. Yes, I'm enjoying myself.
After all, on this airship, there is always fun to be found!
Allow me to add my sword dance to the entertainment list!

Happy holidays!
(Captain)... I have something to ask...
There's a special holiday performance tonight with one of my favorite dance troupes. Won't you come with me?
Don't worry, we should be able to make it back to the ship in time for the party.
Hehe. Thank you! I'm so happy! Why, I could dance for joy!
Oh, don't be like that; I won't actually dance for joy.
Probably.

You want me to give the tree a pruning with my sword dance?
I can't really say it'll turn out well though...
But since it's to pretty-up our crown jewel of the holiday season and a direct order from the captain, I'll give it my best shot!
Um, if I pull this off and make the tree look great, there's one favor I want from you.
Could we have a mini-ball around the tree during tonight's party?
If we do, I want you to be my dance partner.
Is that a yes? Yay, thank you!
Now stand back and witness the awe of my sword dance!

(Captain)! O-oh! Look at me, all flustered!
Say, do you remember that performance we went to a few seasons back? By my favorite dance troupe? Yes, that lovely show!
Well, the troupe sent me an invitation! They want me to come not as a guest, but as a dancer!
Oh, it's like a dream come true... To think that my sword dance would be among the jewels adorning this dazzling night!
My! (Captain), you're coming to the show?
I'm so very thrilled! I'll put on such a fiery performance, you won't be able to tear your eyes away.

Heh heh, so a battlefield awaits, you say?
What's that shibboleth everyone has been saying... "Happy holidays," was it?
In deciding on a secret code, we must be careful in controlling the flow of information even amongst ourselves.
Anyhow, the others seem to be preoccupied making arrangements for something. Will we be taking off shortly?
What is it? Why do you laugh? Your heart must be beating with excitement for the battle to come!
Choose: I said snowfield! Not battlefield!
By the heavens... What shame I've brought upon myself...
Graaaaaah!
(Captain) rushes to catch up with the scurrying Geisenborger, promising a treat if he'll come back.

Why is everyone so excited? Huh? Winter holly... day?
Hrm... Holly-day...
Oh, holiday! Hey, I said it! Now I know why everyone's getting excited!

Hmmm... I wanna ask you something, (Captain). I found a funny box by my bed, see!
Hm...
San... ta. Cla... us?
Santa... Claus?
It's from Santa Claus! Heheheh! I can read it! Thanks, Santa!

(Captain)! Guess what I saw! There was a reindeer right over there!
Hm? Reindeer don't live in towns? But I saw it! I really saw it!
It had horns and a bright red nose... And it told me it flies through the air all the time!
Let's see... Its name was Lam... Or Lamret... Lam-something...
I'm not lying! Come see it with me! It's probably still asleep on the ground in front of the tavern!

(Captain), I want you to help me! Tell me how to meet Santa!
I wanna see him and say thanks for the presents!
You mean he's too busy to meet people?
Yeah, I guess he's delivering presents for the whole world...
But I wanna see him... I wanna tell him how grateful I am in person...
You think I should write a letter?
(Captain), that's a great idea! I'll go write one right away!

(Captain)! Lookie!
Last year I wrote Santa a letter! And this year he replied!
It says since I was such a good girl this year, he'll give me new sparkly stuff!
Today I'm going to wait for Santa and thank him when he gets here!
Hm? If I don't fall asleep he won't come? I won't get my present?
Oh no... I want to say thanks to him, but I want a shiny present...
I know! I'll go to bed and pretend to sleep!
Yay! I know this'll work!

Hey, (Captain)... There's something I want to ask you.
I've only ever gotten to celebrate the winter holiday with Anne.
So I was wondering if this time I could exchange presents with everyone.
Would that be okay?
Hee-hee, thanks. I'd better start shopping for gifts everyone would like.
Will you go with me, (Captain)?

Hey, (Captain). Do you have a sec?
All the kids at Mysteria were talking about throwing a holiday party...
Yeah, so... you should come too if you can, (Captain).
Huh? No, nobody will mind at all!
Anne, Owen, and the class president all want to see you, (Captain).
And I'd be really happy if you came too.
So what do you say?
Really? That's great to hear.
Thanks. Everyone else and I will be looking forward it.

Oh, (Captain). Good timing.
Can I ask you to accompany me for a bit?
I'm thinking of getting presents for Anne and Owen.
But I'm not sure what they'd like best...
I was hoping you could help me pick them out.
You'll come along? Great, let's have a good look around.
Teehee, it'll be so much fun shopping with you, (Captain)...

Hey, Singularity, hey! It's not every year that there's snow on the holy night, huh?
That means this day's extra special!
Singularity, I've made up my mind! More than anything else, I'm going to enjoy this special holiday!
How do I plan on having fun?
Heh... Do you even need to ask?
There could be no better match for such than some quiet moments alone with the poetry of Nietzel...
Huh! W-wait! You're telling me that there's a holiday party tonight?
Are you serious! You've gotta tell me this stuff earlier! I wouldn't be anywhere else!
Hurray! I can't wait!

Season's greetings, (Captain).
Do you believe in Santa Claus?
Ah, sorry, I didn't mean to treat you like a child.
I, however, do believe in the jolly old man.
Teehee, you must think I'm childish.
The mere thought of how Santa brings smiles to children all over makes me jealous.
I'd like to be more like him someday.
You may find me arrogant for thinking so, but I'll hope you'll support me in the endeavor.

Yeeaaah! Happy holidays!
Let's make this holiday crazy happy! Crazy crazy happy!
Hey, hey! Did ya ask Santa for anything? I haven't!
I guess I've just been so happy since I met you, I don't even want anything else.
Aaah! That's pretty weak, right? Let's think of something to ask Santa for! Come on, (Captain)!

Winter Death Saw of Death! Yee-haw!
Check my baby out! I strung a bunch of lights onto it for a crazy-to-the-max effect!
I made one for you too, (Captain)! Let's go swing these around and give Santa a huge welcome!
Don't worry. I lowered the power and took the teeth off. It's totally safe!

(Captain)! I, I heard that Santa kidnaps bad boys and girls...
The people in town said that when Santa realizes you're a bad kid, instead of giving you a present he stuffs you into his bag.
I think I might be a bad kid. I'm always swinging around my Divine Death Saw of Death and screaming and stuff...
Do... Do you think he'll come kidnap me, (Captain)?
I don't wanna go... I don't wanna be apart from you... Sniffle...
Choose You're a good girl.
You really think so? So he won't put me in his bag? He won't steal me away for ever and ever?
But I'm still a little scared. Will you stay with me for tonight?
And maybe, just to be extra sure, you should hold me tight?
It's okay? Hehe. Goodie-woodie, lovey-dovey yay!
Yup, (Captain), I never feel more safe than when I'm with you.
Choose I'll protect you.
Oh, (Captain)!
If you're here to watch over me, then there's no way he'll be able to stuff me into his dumb sack!
But I'm still a little scared. Will you stay with me for tonight?
And maybe, just to be extra sure, you should hold me tight?
It's okay? Hehe. Goodie-woodie, lovey-dovey yay!
Yup, (Captain), I never feel more safe than when I'm with you.

(Captain)! Look at this lovely, outta this world mini tree!
My Divine Death Saw of Death revved up when we saw this beauty of a fir, and before I knew it, we were hack, hack, hackin'!
And those wild, awesome ornaments hanging off it? I made 'em aaalll!
See this Santa right here? Ain't it crazy pretty? Insanely lovely?
Heehee! With a tree like this, our holy night's gonna be merry to the max!
Hehehe! Don't go anywhere yet! Santa Hallessena is gifting this to everyone on the airship!
Ehehe... I hope you guys will like it.

Halluel and Malluel (Summer)

The smallest of noises suddenly wakes (Captain) from dreamland.
Malluel: Oopsy! Sorry, I guess we were too loud.
Halluel: We didn't mean to wake you, (Captain).
Someone told us today is the day all the good boys and girls get presents delivered next to their pillows.
Malluel: So Hal and I are going around delivering gifts on everyone's behalf!
Halluel: Okay. Hold out your hand.
Both: Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Malluel: The original plan was to make the drop and tiptoe out with you none the wiser. Sorry again for disturbing your slumber.
Halluel: Oh! I know the perfect apology. We'll sing you a lullaby.
Malluel: Heehee. That's a great idea, Hal!
Let's tuck you in, nice and snug.
Like being wrapped in a fluffy hug.
Now close your eyes, and sleep well in beddy-byes.
Halluel: Good night, (Captain). May visions of dancing sugarplums visit you on this holy night.

Happy holidays!
Today is the day good little boys and girls get presents.
(Captain), have you been good this year? If so, you get a present.
And if not, you get a nice big fist to the... Hahaha! No problem this year, right? Well then. Here's your present.

Another year of good behavior, (Captain)?
Heheh. I've been observing your actions. You've been the very model of decency.
I made sure to get you a present befitting such a bastion of virtue. Here. It's yours.

What am I doing in these red clothes with this white bag?
Haha. Why, I'm fulfilling the wishes of the local tikes.
Actually I was with those children just moments ago. And to be honest, I'm a little tired.
But don't worry, (Captain). I haven't forgotten your present.
You've been a bastion of virtue this year as well, so go ahead. Take it.

(Captain), happy holidays!
Hahah, the children clung to me this year as well.
I was just traipsing around town in my red outfit and hat.
No worries of course. I made sure to prepare you a present as well. Here, it's yours.
Hm? You, too, have a gift?
Hehe... I guess we can definitely cross you off the naughty list.
Thank you. I appreciate it.

Happy holidays! Ho ho ho!
Of course I have a gift for you, (Captain). You've been so good this year!
Here you are. Did my sudden jollity startle you?
I'm rehearsing so that I can be an even better Santa Claus this year, when I hand out gifts to the children.
Oh, wait a moment now! I can't accept your gift yet, (Captain).
First I have to complete all my Santa Claus duties.
Would you save it for me as a reward once I've finished?
In that case, I'm off to spread good cheer! Have a wonderful holiday, (Captain)!

Take a look at how the town transforms when wrapped in a white blanket of snow. It's a curious sight indeed.
The majority of the ancient people chose to settle in lands with little snowfall where it was more conducive to survival.
But the people of your time aren't intimidated by the elements. They band together to pioneer new trails.
Perhaps the awareness of one's mortality inspires limitless possibilities. Potential lies everywhere you look.

You'd better hurry off to bed before Santa Claus arrives.
You don't like me treating you like a child? Hee hee... I suppose I just can't help seeing you as one.
Whatever the case, I hope you enjoy the holiday season! Happy holidays!

(Captain), have you completed your tasks for the day? Please allow me to do any that might remain.
Today is a special day. Santa Claus is coming, isn't he?
You'd better hurry off to bed and dream of presents!
I know you want to be treated like an adult. But what better proof that you're still a child.
Very well then... If you can stay awake through my lullaby, then maybe you are an adult.
Now hop into bed. You wouldn't want to catch cold.

How goes your duties, (Captain)?
Of all days you should rest tonight. Santa Claus won't come if you're not in bed.
Me? I've made traditional Alster cookies for him to snack on.
In fact, now that I think about it, these were the first type of cookies I ever baked. Naoise's mother taught me how.
She was like a mother to me. A mother I gained in place of the one I lost at such a young age. She taught me all sorts of things.
Here. Take these, (Captain). Place these by your bedside tonight and rest well.

(Captain)? You're still awake? It's already past bedtime.
Honestly... Hurry back up to bed before Santa Claus sees you.
Now go say your prayers and get in bed. I'll sing you to sleep with a lullaby if you're good.
Now, now. There's no need to be embarrassed.
Doting on you is my special privilege as an adult, after all.
Hehe... Seeing you puff your cheeks out like that only delights me.
Now get some sleep. That's right, your legs under the blanket... You wouldn't want to catch a cold tonight.
...
I just hope that you can stay the way you are for a little longer, my darling captain.

My, (Captain). I can’t say I’m pleased to see you up so late―it is the holidays, you know.
You’ve still work to do? Won’t you let me handle it, just for today?
Oh, don’t be so polite. You know, there are times when the young should act a bit spoiled.
While you’re still a child, revel in your youth. All of that will fade when you’re an adult, never to return.
In a few years, I’m sure you’ll long for days like this one. So don’t pull such a long face.
Come now, to bed with you. Here let me tuck you in...
And hold your hand until you fall asleep. Let go of all worry and dream pleasant dreams.
Good night.
(Captain), please, stop rushing so desperately towards adulthood.
Because when you grow up, I will have one less reason to take care of you.

I always used to spend the holidays with my family.
But sometimes it's fun to just go partying with some friends! Now, I wonder if there are any beautiful ladies out there...

Did you know that different regions have their own ways of celebrating tonight?
I've come across quite a few customs as I hopped from city to city.
There's a place where it's a day for lovers to reaffirm their affections for each other.
Romantic, isn't it?
Celebrating with your one true love...
That's the best thing in the world.
I hope I can find someone to share my heart with someday.
There's a party going on in the city right now. If I go, do you think I'll run into the one, (Captain)?

It's a beautiful night, isn't it, (Captain)? A romantic moon like that—really makes you want to snuggle up to somebody special.
I bet that's why you've come to see me.
Hehe. It's okay to assume something vain like that, right?
After all, you're the one who came to me.
Want to go outside for a bit?
I want to show you just how beautiful the night sky is. Well, shall we?

Mm, aah... Oh, it's you, (Captain). What's happening?
Hm? The party's already started? That's right, it's the eve of the big holiday, isn't it?
I'm sorry... I was totally absorbed in making models. Thank you for coming to let me know.
Let me lead you to the venue.
You don't mind if I have you all to myself on the way, do you?

Whew... Sure is cold tonight.
Heya, (Captain). I'm back. Really chilly out there, huh?
Everyone out in town was having a jolly ol' time—just what I like to see for the holidays.
I'm nearly chilled to the bone after walking all the way back here. But no frostbite thankfully.
It's such a relief that it's always warm and cozy inside the ship.
I bet the secret to it is you, (Captain).
Any chance you can let me in on how you do it?

Heh heh. It sure is quiet tonight, (Captain).
On a night like this, two people illuminated only by candlelight...
It's the perfect setting for drills.
Haha, I'm just kidding.
I must thank you for letting me in your crew, (Captain).
It's my fondest wish to spend another peaceful holiday evening like this with you.
Next year, the year after, and so on.
Have a wonderful evening.

On certain islands, I hear this holy night is dedicated to... L-lovers...
Have you ever... spent time with a lover on this holiest of nights?
I... I'm sorry. Forgive me. I don't mean to be so prying. What am I thinking...
You have my deepest apologies, (Captain). Please forget my question!
Agh... I will never be able to live up to my father's legacy if I'm so busy worrying about such trite matters.
Curses to these superfluous thoughts! Will I ever be free from pondering such silly things?
I'm sorry, (Captain). I need to clear my mind of such thoughts. To do so, I will be going for a run!

Um... (Captain)? Forgive me for asking this out of the blue, but...
Do you have any plans today?
Really? Great! Then let's spend the day together!
I keep thinking about the tradition of spending this day with the person you love...
Someday I might be in a position to do that... So I have to prepare!
Ah, wait, no! I shouldn't burden you with such a selfish request!
Agh... My impure thoughts have gotten the better of me once again!
(Captain), I've changed my mind! I want you to spend today training with me!
We'll train until my mind is as pure as the driven snow!

(Captain)... Should you really be out here during the holiday party?
Hm? You saw me come out and chased after me?
Haha. Thanks for caring, (Captain).
I had such a good time with all the fun and drinks that my body started heating up. Thought I'd come out for some fresh air.
I've always kept up my training during the holidays even though I gave my agents time off.
I was too obsessed with getting stronger to know how to take it easy and enjoy myself at such occasions.
Haha, how I've changed ever since meeting you, (Captain). I... hope you'll take responsibility.
Oh, just kidding. I guess being in such a good mood makes me more glib. A bit strange perhaps, given how chilly I'm feeling.
Say, why don't we go back inside and hang out there? We'll make this a night to remember!

Heh heh. It sure is quiet tonight, (Captain).
On a night like this, two people illuminated only by candlelight...
It's the perfect setting for drills.
Haha, I'm just kidding.
I must thank you for letting me in your crew, (Captain).
It's my fondest wish to spend another peaceful holiday evening like this with you.
Next year, the year after, and so on.
Have a wonderful evening.

On certain islands, I hear this holy night is dedicated to... L-lovers...
Have you ever... spent time with a lover on this holiest of nights?
I... I'm sorry. Forgive me. I don't mean to be so prying. What am I thinking...
You have my deepest apologies, (Captain). Please forget my question!
Agh... I will never be able to live up to my father's legacy if I'm so busy worrying about such trite matters.
Curses to these superfluous thoughts! Will I ever be free from pondering such silly things?
I'm sorry, (Captain). I need to clear my mind of such thoughts. To do so, I will be going for a run!

Um... (Captain)? Forgive me for asking this out of the blue, but...
Do you have any plans today?
Really? Great! Then let's spend the day together!
I keep thinking about the tradition of spending this day with the person you love...
Someday I might be in a position to do that... So I have to prepare!
Ah, wait, no! I shouldn't burden you with such a selfish request!
Agh... My impure thoughts have gotten the better of me once again!
(Captain), I've changed my mind! I want you to spend today training with me!
We'll train until my mind is as pure as the driven snow!

(Captain)... Should you really be out here during the holiday party?
Hm? You saw me come out and chased after me?
Haha. Thanks for caring, (Captain).
I had such a good time with all the fun and drinks that my body started heating up. Thought I'd come out for some fresh air.
I've always kept up my training during the holidays even though I gave my agents time off.
I was too obsessed with getting stronger to know how to take it easy and enjoy myself at such occasions.
Haha, how I've changed ever since meeting you, (Captain). I... hope you'll take responsibility.
Oh, just kidding. I guess being in such a good mood makes me more glib. A bit strange perhaps, given how chilly I'm feeling.
Say, why don't we go back inside and hang out there? We'll make this a night to remember!

Today I got off work early, so I headed into town and bought a cake.
I saw a lot of couples and families walking about. Everyone looked very happy.
What am I doing tonight? I thought I would go back to my room and eat my cake.
With who? I'm afraid I don't have anyone to eat it with.
It's just... I wasn't sure if it was all right to go to the crew party.
Oh, looks like I've gone and worried you. But I'm happy you thought of me.
Thanks, (Captain). Allow me to treat you and the others to some cake.

Impressive... Not only is this year's tree imposing in size, but it's been beautifully decorated.
I'm glad I decided to stop by the plaza on my way home from work.
You don't have to stay with me, (Captain). I didn't expect to run into you while you were out shopping for party supplies like this.
Wouldn't you rather be out creating fond memories with others closer to your age?
This special night only comes once a year, and surely you'd have a more enjoyable experience with them.
You... really don't mind being here with me? Ah, I see. You wanted to invite me to the party too.
Thank you. Then allow me the pleasure of bringing another cake this year.
Shall we walk for a bit? I can help you carry some of those bags if you'd like.

It took so long to finish the work the brass threw at me that it's already late. What an awful holiday present.
(I expected as much, but it's a little disappointing I wasn't able to attend the crew's party...)
Oh?
As Ilsa reaches out to open the door to her room, she notices a card attached to it.
A season's greeting card... from (Captain).
Heh... Hope you'll be able to join us next time. This level of consideration deserves a medal, (Captain).
Now then, I wonder if I have any candles?
It would be dull to eat this cake in ordinary lighting. I think I'll get into the holiday spirit with some warm candlelight.
Having made her decision, Ilsa sets the card from (Captain) on the table and smiles at it fondly.

Happy holidays!
Come on! Let's go get some cake!

There really are all kinds of great things to do this time of year.
You can spend time with your friends. You can eat great food. And you can even get presents from Santa Claus!
Hehe. It really is the best time of year!
I can hardly wait for it each time.
Hey, let's go over to the kitchen! I'm sure someone's making something good for dinner.
We should help them out! Then maybe we'll get to try some!

Hehe! I'll be making the cake for tonight!
And you'll be helping me, (Captain)! Let's see if we have all the ingredients ready...
Hm? Where's the apple? I could have sworn I put it here. Don't tell me...
I know who did it! We'll bake that cake later, (Captain). First we gotta catch this thief!
Hehe. Time to add some roast lizard to tonight's menu.

(Captain)! Hey, (Captain)! It's snowing!
Hehe. Don't you think it's romantic?
This holiday really isn't complete without a thick, white blanket of snow.
What? You wanna have a snowball fight! And you want me to go round up the rest of the girls to join?
Really, (Captain)! Way to ruin the mood!

Hey, (Captain)! Have you seen Vyrn around anywhere?
What? He went to borrow clothes from Santa Claus?
All right, looks like he's getting ready! I better get changed too.
We're going to be giving presents out to the kids on the ship, so we've got to look the part!
That's what a good adult does during the holidays, isn't it? Hey, how about joining us too, (Captain)?

Happy holidays! Santa must get mighty cold traveling alone in winter.
But it's nothing a warm bowl of ramen couldn't fix!

Jolly holly holidays, Captain!
Care for a little stroll before ol' Santa drops by?
A piping-hot bowl of ramen should be a fine, festive delight on a cold winter day!
My treat of course! Take it as my holiday gift to you!

I'm telling you, ramen tastes great when the season turns chilly!
The longest winter night is the best time to sit down with a few bowls of ramen!
So how about it, (Captain)? Let's grab a bite while we wait for Santa!
Ha-ha! If he shows up while we're eating...
I'll treat him to a bowl of ramen too!

'Tis the season!
Brr... It sure is cold, though. Looks like it'll snow tonight.
There's a ramen cart around here that I've been meaning to try. How about we check it out?
They say this one only shows up on the most holy and silent of nights.
Oho! So you're interested? All right. I'll lead the way.
There's something magical about ramen on a snowy night, don't you think?

I'll be making ramen for this year's holiday dinner!
My piping hot ramen is sure to warm you up and give you the strength to make it through the winter!
That being said, if you eat a big bowl of ramen, you won't have room for anything else.
And that'd be a waste, considering the huge spread of delicious food at the feast.
So I did a little brainstorming, and I came up with this!
I call it... cup ramen!
This way, light eaters can have one cup, and heavy eaters can have refills!
I hope you'll eat to your stomach's content too, (Captain)!

The fireplace in my home always used to be lit.
On cold, quiet nights, everyone seemed to wander toward it.
I loved that fireplace. It was so warm... and inviting.
When you sat in front of it, it always felt like its warmth was there protecting you. I was so used to that feeling.
In those days it was the one thing that truly gave me solace.
But that was all so many years ago...

Good evening, (Captain). Hm? Did you wish to speak with me?
Ah, that's right. Tonight is the night for holiday celebrations. And is that a present for me?
It warms my heart knowing that you went out of your way to see me on this special day. Thank you, (Captain).
You're as warm and cozy as a roaring fireplace.
When you're with me, I feel happiness even on the coldest nights...
I like you, (Captain)...

Tonight is that time of gift-giving and mistletoe. Oh, are you cold?
Mm... I always end up making things chillier whenever I'm around.
But your kindness and warmth never fails to thaw my frozen heart. Those qualities are irreplaceable.
So I'd love it if you stayed by my side...
I want to feel your warmth. Is that okay?
Thank you. I like you, (Captain).

I'm so lucky I get to spend another holiday with you, (Captain).
Are you sure you're okay, though? I'm very worried that you'll catch a cold from being around me.
And I feel... restless. You're always so warm and kind to me, but I...
I've always wanted to return that favor. Presents can be given early on the eve of the big day too, right?
But what gift can I give? I'd like to think about it for a bit. So will you stay with me?
Sitting here, chatting by a roaring fireplace... I'm positive it'll help me think of something.

The festive season? Can't say I ever heard of that!
As an orphan, I didn't get a Santa hat! I didn't get a tree or presents from the store!
So what the heck are you botherin' me for?
Yo, you want to give me all that stuff? Well, then I hope a thanks is enough...

Yo, happy! Happy, happy! Happy holidays!
Tonight, we're gonna party 'til we drop! And I'll be coming in, bringing on the hip-hop!
Captain, J.J., everybody!
You want a tree? One red costume, please! How about some fruitcake? Let's party, for goodness sake!
Hey, what's goin' on up here? I'm not feeling the cheer. We gotta raise the roof with this crew!
Just kidding, Captain. We're having a good time. This place is so happening!
Heheh. Now this is what I call a real happy holiday!

Yo, yo, jingle bells, jingle bells!
Ringing those bells, dashin' through the snow, party's gonna start before you even know!
All right y'all, Santa J.J. is in the house!
Jinglin' here, jinglin' there, blingin' all the way! Ho!
All together, all together, let's party night and day!
Whoo! Happy holidays! You havin' fun, (Captain)?
Holiday partaaay! Yeaaaah!

What am I bringing to the gift exchange? Well, someone's gonna get a healthy dose of my freestyle!
J.J. droppin', poppin', hip-hoppin',
O ho-ho-ho holy night!
It's hot—so hot—meltin' the snowy twilight!
Singin' "yo!" The holiday's awaitin'!
And so! We gonna go a-wassailin'!
See the ice—bling bling—wrappin' 'round the tree!
Keep on rhymin'—ring-a-ling—a freestylin' spree!
Oh, what fun is it to rhyme on this Noel scene. Getcha holly-jolly on, y'know what I mean?
Can I hear ya say "yeah"? Yeaah!
Okay! That rap's a wrap! My present's good to go!
What? It's supposed to be something physical? But I don't have anything else to give...

Say yeah! Holy night, oh! (Captain), you ready to celebrate?
The streets are alive with light. But where there's light, there's shadow.
When I was a kid, I used to watch people going about their holiday business from the back streets...
I always saw a bunch of kids my own age, hanging out with their moms and dads and loving the season.
I used to look at those sparkling trees with a lot of contempt. And I know there are still a ton of kids out there like me.
That's why I vow to bring them the gift of hip-hop!
Yo! Hear it, the rhyme panther! It's your hero, J.J. Santa!
You wanna help me spread the cheer, man?

Hmm.. Ah, would you like one, (Captain)? I have obtained some toys and treasures.
Yes, I liberated them from a bandit. He was carrying a large bag full of presents as he ran away from me.
But there's one thing I don't understand. Why would he dress in a such an eye-catching red outfit... What? It was Rackam in a costume?
Oh no... This is the most mortifying thing that's ever happened to me...

...
Ah, Master (Captain), forgive me for not responding immediately.
Because of my little mishap the previous year, I decided to give Rackam a hand this year.
But he immediately told me to run off to bed for some reason.
I wonder if he'll be okay carrying such a large bag alone...

I have erected a snowman over there, Master. Please make good use of it.
Hm? For what purpose?
My clan would routinely use it for clandestine operations. You can observe the enemy by hiding inside.
Even if a snowman wasn't there before, no one would give a second thought to a freshly made one. There is a small caveat however...
You'll freeze to death if you fall asleep inside it. Well, honestly it's not that big of a deal.

Are you heading out, Master?
In that case, rest assured that your security will be absolute. I have built snowmen all over town in which I can conceal myself in order to watch over you.
Should any miscreants dare to cast the shadow of violence over your holiday outing, I shall eliminate them before they have a chance to—
Hm? I should just come along with you? But...
Understood. Then I shall travel with you as your bodyguard.
Thank you for your consideration.

Happy holidays! I hear today is going to be a wonderful day!
Yeah, hehe! Looks like I heard right! The rabbits, the squirrels... oh, everyone looks so happy!
(Captain), are you happy today too?
Huh? Oh no! Your hands are half-frozen!

Hey, (Captain)! Over here!
It's really chilly today, so let's have the animals warm us up!
Hm? It's better if the animals aren't here? You mean you'd rather be alone with me?
Eheheh... No, I don't mind at all... Let's spend the day together then...

Today's a day to spend with your loved ones... Will you spend the day with me, (Captain)?
Teehee, thank you. I hope you don't mind my animals joining us.
I love you all the same!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Why don't we decorate the tree together this year?
The animals have gathered lots of ripe fruits and berries for us.
It's all for making the tree look super pretty.
You can hang up the ones you like too, (Captain)!
Hehe, with you and all the animals hustling about...
Decorating the tree tonight feels like a party!

(Captain)! Happy holidays!
I made little stockings for all the animals to make sure Santa's presents reach them too!
Of course, I saved one just for you!
Here you go, (Captain)! Don't forget to hang it by your bedside!
When morning comes, we'll be able to compare our presents!

Happy holidays! I hear today is going to be a wonderful day!
Yeah, hehe! Looks like I heard right! The rabbits, the squirrels... oh, everyone looks so happy!
(Captain), are you happy today too?
Huh? Oh no! Your hands are half-frozen!

Hey, (Captain)! Over here!

Happy holidays, Captain.
It's fun to have a lively celebration, but silent nights can be enjoyable too. Whichever you choose, I hope you have a great time tonight!

As a child, I always looked forward to Santa Claus's visits.
All the teddy bears I received back then are still in my room back home.
Teehee... They're all so cute; I couldn't bear to throw any of them out.
Santa Claus has given me so many fond memories with his gifts.
Knowing that the children of today are receiving gifts like I once did warms my heart.

Sincerest greetings to you, (Captain). The streets are filled with joyous chatter on this holy night.
Even so, the number of couples strolling about is most unusual...
Hm? Tonight is also a special time for deepening one's relationship? Ah, that makes sense.
I'm sorry. I can't say I pay much attention to such details.
But there is truth in it.
The holy night should be a blessing. It's best to spend time with someone important to you.
I have to show my thanks for being able to spend this night with you and the rest of the crew.
It's a very cold night, but my heart is warm.

Happy holidays, (Captain). Another festive season is upon us.
People coming together in harmony around a table...
It's such a normal custom, but I hope such warm-heartedness continues next year, the year after, and forever after that.
My wish is to protect people as they go about their daily lives.
I know what I can manage by myself won't amount to much...
But still... If my meager help provides the key to even one person's happiness, then I am sure of this path.

Hm? Oh, (Captain). Happy holidays.
I'm sorry, could you wait just a minute? Thank you. I'll just hang this here... Fix this a little...
There! It's perfect. Look, (Captain)—it's a tapestry, spun into a holiday design.
It has a red and green motif with a cake, Santa Claus, a tree with ornaments...
I made it to depict a scene with everyone spending an enjoyable holy night together. What do you think? Hehe... Thank you.
I pray with all my heart that I can continue spending the holiday season with you and the others... Not only this year, but also in the years to come.
That is why I shall devote myself to my mission... But I suppose that kind of talk would be too solemn for a festive night like this.
Hehe, I apologize. You're right—tonight, let's relax and enjoy the holiday season together.

Happy holidays, (Captain). A holy night like this... does not suit me the way I am now...
Haha, how kind of you. But please don't make such a sad face.
Your smile is the greatest gift for me now. Something more would be...
It's really cold, can you give me a hug? Haha... Please?

The holiday season no longer suits me...
And yet I still love the snow and how it covers everything in pure white.
Perhaps if the snow covered and froze my heart, I'd be free of this torment.
But no... Running from my sins will not do.
Even if it means letting the torment drag me down into madness!

Tell me, (Captain). Is this holy night supposed to be so freezing cold?
Though the streets are filled with joyous voices, all I hear in my heart is silence.
It's cold and dreadful...
Will you take my hand, (Captain)?
Squeeze my hand as if to fill that void... More, more!
Mm, warmth. Your hand alone is always warm.

I hear the voices of children at play...
Is it the winter festival? I remember when I too felt like those children during this time of year.
Such innocence, when you look past the surface, is simple ignorance.
Once you've realized this truth, you can never return to purer days.
I suspect that I won't ever...
Ah, excuse me, (Captain). You've come to invite me to the festivities?
I'm afraid I must refuse—I had planned to pray in my room.
Don't make that face. It's more that enough that you came to invite me.
Truly..

Happy holidays!
Huh? You want to know who I'll be spending my time with? Hrm, with all my friends in the crew I suppose.
The winter chill will be tough to brave, but days like this when we can just relax and enjoy each other's company makes it all the more bearable.
Even when surrounded by frigid snow, the company of others helps me forget the cold and have a good time.
It's important to remember that we're not alone.
Haha... Shall we go and prepare dinner?

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Today's a festive night! The children can barely contain their excitement waiting for Santa Clause!
Huh, me? I'm a little too old to get presents from Santa Clause... Right?
Although I do cherish all of the presents that I've received in the past.
Mm? What kind of presents?
Let's see... My favorite was a stuffed rabbit, I guess.
I used to make clothes for Mr. Bunny myself. That's how I learned to enjoy sewing.
I hope the children will forever treasure the presents they receive tonight.

Hello, (Captain). Happy holidays!
Oh... I'm sorry, that was a little loud, wasn't it?
I was doing some vocal training just now. I'll need to get used to lowering my voice again...
Hm? Why vocal training, you ask? Why, for the holiday carols, of course...
Oh! Come to think of it, other towns might not have the same customs we do.
In Orleans, everyone gathers and offers up a song of prayer on the holy night.
I was practicing so my song can ring out and reach the creator in the skies above...
Huh? You want to hear it? O-oh, well... All right, then I will sing it once more for you.

This season brings back so many memories. My brother and I used to stay up late trying to catch Santa...
My dream is to spend the holidays with the people I care about most.
Who do you want to spend the holiday season with, (Captain)?

This is the season for celebration. With that in mind, I did my best to prepare something tasty for you.
Hehehe. I really do love cooking. And I love watching people enjoy my cuisine.
Tonight I will prepare a feast for all to enjoy!

Captain! Santa should be coming soon, so hurry up and get in bed!
If you stay up too late, then Santa might leave without visiting the Grandcypher.
I'll put you in a time-out if you don't go to sleep this instant!

The holiest night of the year has come round again, (Captain).
I know you'll have fun celebrating with everyone, but don't stay up too late, all right?
If you find yourself tossing and turning in bed, I'll come tuck you in and send you right off to dreamland.
I used to be in charge of putting my little brother to bed at night. I'd sing him lullabies, or read him bedtime stories...
Haha... Sometimes I ended up putting myself to sleep in the process. But it did work.

The town sure is bustling on this festive night. Hehe... It's fun just walking around.
I'd love to take a leisurely stroll, but I have to finish shopping so I can head back and prepare for the party.
Let's see... I need ingredients for the feast, and the kids on the crew asked for treats...
Why don't we bring back ornaments for the tree too? If we end up with some left over, we can use them as table decorations.
Oh, is that so? Hehe, I'm glad you agree. In that case, let's stop by the general store first.
Um... By the way...
Do you happen to know what street we're on, (Captain)?
I seem to have gotten lost. I'd appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction...

Happy holidays! It really warms my heart to see all the kids running around so happy.
May you have a most wonderful evening, (Captain)!

I wish you happy holidays, (Captain)!
Tis the season for friends to gather and enjoy each other's company.
When I roamed the skies alone, I was so emotionally distant from everyone else.
So the opportunity to spend the holidays with close friends is a true blessing for me.
Everything should be experienced once—even loneliness. Of course I can only say that because I've moved past it.

Impersonating Santa Claus and passing out presents to children—that is the reason for the season.
And speaking of, I've just come back from fetching a present to put on Sara's pillow.
But entering the bedroom of a sleeping girl seems quite ungentlemanly.
What should I do? Perhaps I shall enlist the help of Volenna. Mmm...

Excuse me, Captain, could I trouble you for a moment of your time?
Thank you. You see, I've been trying to decide on a holiday gift for Sara.
I've been to toy stores, general stores, and clothing shops, but I'm not sure what she would like...
I'm at an utter loss, and now the day is already upon us. How disgraceful...
Volenna is busy preparing dinner in the kitchen, so I can't ask for her advice...
Would you perhaps be willing to accompany me on my shopping expedition?
You have my deepest gratitude. With your assistance, I'm sure I'll be able to figure something out!
And I'll have time to find something for you as well!
Oh...
That was supposed to be a secret... What a blunder...
Well, the surprise may be ruined, but please let me know if you see anything that catches your eye.
I've set aside funds just for this occasion!

What's this? Santa Claus is almost here, and you're still awake, (Captain)?
I was drinking with Eugen and the others, but now I'm sobering up here on the deck.
I'm not a lightweight by any means, but there's just no keeping up with them.
But that's enough of that. It wouldn't be good for you to become interested in drinking too.
Drinking can be fun, of course, but there are plenty of downsides to be careful of.
You're free to find out only after you've become an adult.
Not that someone like me should be the one telling you that.
Let's head back inside. We don't want to catch a cold right before we head into the new year, after all!

Happy holidays.
I bet even Santa Claus can't make it to the ends of the sky.
Or can he? It would be so awesome if he could!

Do you think Santa's sleigh could reach the sky floor?
If I pleaded with him enough, I wonder if he'd take me there...
Then again, maybe he's too busy.
I should've asked when I was a kid. Instead of a present, I should've asked for a sleigh ride.
Ah... But maybe it's for the best.
If I'd asked, I might never have met you and the crew, (Captain). Yeah, I'm glad I met you instead!

Mm... It really is pretty...
Hm? (Captain)... Are you curious about this book of paintings?
I got it when I was a little kid. Do you wanna take a look?
Supposedly this painting is by an artist who was fascinated with the bottom of the sky, so she drew what she imagined it'd be like.
I bet she was a lot like me... Probably read fairy tales and thought a lot about a huge sea far beneath the clouds...
I wanted to meet her one day and ask her all sorts of things... But I heard she passed away a long time ago.
Looking at this picture, I wonder if Santa Claus will get to see a sight like this tonight! If he does, he sure is lucky...

What a quiet night it is... Then again, tonight is that special night.
Oh, of course. Because I brought you away from the party.
Hm, sorry about that. I just wanted to talk to you alone.
Especially after seeing how pretty it was outside from the window.
Hm, what I wanted to talk about? Well, I didn't exactly have something in mind.
But I was thinking that even at the bottom of the skies, they might be celebrating the festivities the same way we are... How strange that'd be...
Is it as quiet down there as it is here now, or is it always quiet in the Crimson Horizon?
The bottom of the skies is all I talk about? Well, it's always something I dreamed of as a kid.
I'd like to go there with you someday if you're up for it.
I don't know how many winter holidays will come before then, but I'm sure the time will come eventually...

I wonder if snow falls at the bottom of the sky... What do you think, (Captain)?
Be nice if it did? Yeah. You're right. I think so too.
Heh-heh. You always know what to say. Makes me kinda happy.
But, man... I feel like, every winter, all I do is talk to you about the world under the clouds.
Yeah... You have a point. I guess it's just because the thing I want most is to reach the bottom of the sky.
Guess I'm still dreaming, just like a kid. I really haven't changed at all.
And thanks for never telling me I had to change... (Captain).
One day, let's travel to the bottom of the sky and swim in that huge ocean together... I'd like that a lot.

Merry Christmas.
It seems Christmas Eve celebration has been celebrated for a long time. I wonder when it originated?
I imagine it was much different back then.
Now all of the cultures from around the Sky Realm have mixed together to come up with what we see today. Amazing, don't you think?

It seems the holiday season is upon us once again.
I must confess I've been rather preoccupied with my research as of late, and lost track of time completely.
Heh heh... I can hear such lively voices outside. And I imagine you came here to bring me with you, yes? Let's go join the crew together.

Seasons greetings, (Captain)! Holidays only come once a year, so let's make the most of them!
Is it out of character for me to say that?
Haha, guess it shows how long I've been a member of this crew.
I've gotten used to being a reveler. I might as well act the part and be merry.
Plus, I could probably use this experience as inspiration for my research!

Happy holidays, (Captain).
This is a beautiful night. It's cold out, but the sky is clear, and I feel like I can hear the sound of the stars.
It's like my mind is hypersensitive... I might even make real progress with my research!
I must be going to my room!
Don't mind me. Everyone have a lovely evening!
Farewell!

I must apologize for dragging you along with me on this walk, (Captain).
My research hit a bit of a wall, so I needed a change of scenery to help clear my head.
I must say, however, that the holiday decorations around town are absolutely astounding.
The history of all living beings is reflected in these countless sparkling lights.
Hm? Is it... snowing? I suppose it makes sense, considering it suddenly became colder.
We should head back before we catch colds. With my head plenty cleared, I'm feeling quite optimistic about making more progress in my research!
Have a wonderful evening, (Captain)! May this be a holy night to remember!

Joy (Event)

(Captain), is it New Year's already? The town looks so shiny!
Joy hasn't done Joya's job yet! Oh no! Oh no! Joy wasn't paying attention and missed New Year's!
Meep... Is there still time to do Joya's job?
What? Today is a different holiday?
Not New Year's yet, but we still have parties?
Then Joy wants to party too! Happy Different Holiday, (Captain).

Hm? Do I have any holiday memories? Let's see now. Oh, I remember one!
This is embarrassing, but when I was little, I was afraid of the dark, and I couldn't fall sleep alone.
So my father got me a teddy bear, and after that I felt safe enough to doze off.
If you ever have trouble sleeping, please don't hesitate to come by and borrow my teddy bear, okay?
Its name is Beary Sleepy, and it's so adorable!

Come take a look at this, (Captain)! I've received these winter greeting cards from the children in town!
So adorable. It just warms my heart to see their holiday spirit.
Oh? You've also prepared a greeting card for me? How kind of you!
Hee hee, I can feel the warmth of your kindness from your card too, (Captain). I'll hang it up with the others.
Are you available tonight? If you have some time, stop by and I'll make you a holiday supper.

During the winter, the whole town seems to sparkle. It's livelier than ever.
See? Look around. The kids are decorating the trees on the corner.
They look like they're having so much fun.
I know! I'll put a tree in the entrance of my home.
Then I'll have everyone in town come to see it. And they can decorate it with whatever they like.
Don't you think that would be fun?
Since that's settled, let's start the search for a tree.
I hope we're able to find one big enough for everyone to really have fun decorating.

In previous years, I put up a tree in front of my home and anyone in the city could decorate it however they liked.
Based on all the positive feedback I received, I put up another tree again this year.
Unlike before, however, I've prepared my own ornaments this time around.
Take a look at this! It's an applique of an animal, O holy night edition!
See how it's wearing a Santa hat and reindeer antlers? Heehee, isn't it so cute?
If you know a child that would like to have it, I'll happily give it to them after the holidays are over!

Juri

Leave the decorations to me!
I learned all about the logistics of cutting down and shipping trees when I was in the military!

Ah, looks like more empty plates! I need to keep the food coming. Oh, (Captain)!
Yes, I know I should be relaxing instead of running around, but...
Haha, well, when I was in the military, it was my responsibility to do all the menial tasks at banquets. Not that I wanted to...
Okay, I'm going to take your suggestion and rest for a change. Thank you.
By the way, (Captain), can I get you any—Oops, there I go again.
Haha. I don't think I'll ever be able to rid myself of my commanding officers' influences.

Happy holidays, (Captain)! Today I'll be lending my expertise in the kitchen too.
What, you didn't think I could cook?
Back in the military, we each took turns preparing meals for the unit. I wouldn't say I was the best or anything, but they ate what I served at least.
Out in the field, a hearty meal is imperative for maintaining morale. That was another lesson I took to heart.
Hmm... Are you trying to sneak in bites before dinner?
Haha, I won't stop you.

Hrrgh! Argh!
Juri lugs around a heavy box.
Ngh! This sure is heavy... I could use a break.
Ah, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
Choose: What's up?
Erm... I thought I'd get this ready for tonight's gift exchange.
I have some of my favorite books in here. Mostly revolving around tales about knights...
I had trouble singling it down to just one, so I brought a whole box of them.
Ah, that's right! I should give you one too, (Captain)!
Juri opens up the box and begins looking over its contents.
I wonder which one you'd like best... This one's a classic knight-in-shining-armor-saves-the-princess story.
But it's got a unique twist on things. Despite being a knight, the protagonist isn't too great with a sword. It's full of thrills, and...
(Captain) simply listens with a smile.

Rrgh. Permission to speak, (Captain). It seems our forces are at a disadvantage.
We've been forced to retreat past the main snow fortress. Katalina and Farrah are fearsome warriors!
However, I've managed to restock on ammunition! If we go on the offensive, we may still be able to turn the tide in our favor.
Now, fill your pouch with these snowballs! Dodge through the enemy barrage, then take out the hostiles one by one!
What? You didn't think I'd be so... Into the snowball fight?
Haha. It's an old habit from my time in the imperial army. During the holiday season, whenever snow piled up, we'd set up huge mock battles.
Well then, (Captain)! Leave the vanguard to me! Charge!

Oh, please...
Holiday gift-giving is a scam created by merchants to peddle their wares.
But if you knew that, of course it won't be any fun...
Hey, what are you doing! Don't just open my bag without asking!
Ah, too late. All right then, here's your present.
Thanks for always bein' there. Just take your present and go. Happy holidays!

Are you joking? You wanna invite me to a party at this time of year?
Listen here! The holiday season is a busy time for us merchants. We're makin' last minute deals and closin' the books!
Good golly! Don't make that face at me!
Aw, when you're pleadin' with those eyes, I just can't...
Ah, fine. You win... You're makin' me feel guilty when I haven't done anything...

Heh-heh! Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I'm lookin' chipper, y'say?
Well, can't say that I ain't! People're buyin' all sorts of things for gift givin'.
Heh-heh! Made a pretty profit this season!
By the way... I uhh... I might be free tomorrow night...
So what? So what?! I'll tell ya what! You know how busy merchants are 'round this time!
But this year I tried as hard as a horse to keep tomorrow night free...
And why d'you reckon I did that? Go ahead. Guess.
...
Humph. Forget it. Cap'n numbskull...

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Hey, dontcha think Santa Claus is awesome?
He gives out all those presents to kids, and he does it for free. Free! How's he bankroll that kinda venture?
He must be rollin' in rupies. Man... I wanna be that rich someday.
Oh! Light bulb!
If I can get him to take me on as an apprentice, I can learn all his entrepreneurial tricks!
Hehehe... How's that for a killer business plan!
No time to waste! Gotta go find this fella if I'm gonna strike a deal!

Hey. How much d'ya think Santa's sleigh costs?
If I could get my hands on one of those, I'd be able to go anywhere in a jiffy. That sleigh's a real gem—the stuff merchants drool over!
Ya know what? I've got it! Lemme see if I can't get Santa to barter it to me.
Heheheh... Lemme show ya just how good of a merchant I am.
Hey! If all goes well, I wouldn't mind takin' you out for a spin, (Captain). So you just sit tight and wait, ya hear?

Happy holidays!
So let me get this straight... Santa will bring me anything I want, right?
Even if it's a map to a treasure? Located in an impenetrable ruin? Filled with deadly traps? He'll really bring it?
Ooh, I can't wait!

Hey, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
You wanna know what I'm up to? I'm deckin' the halls with traps instead of holly.
Come on! Ha-ha-ha. Santa's gotta be bored just handin' out presents, right?
So how about a little present for him? I thought I'd give him his just desserts. Know what I mean?
Heheh! Of course they aren't bear traps! They're only enough to make him jump.
The finishing touch is a trick thank-you note... Heheheh! It's the perfect season to show off my trap expertise!

Heh-heh-heh! I'm thinkin' I should set a trap for Santa again this year!
Huh? That's a bad idea, you say? Well, last year he didn't make it past the trap to the trick thank-you note after all...
But Santa's just gotta be lookin' forward to a trap again this year, I think!
Second time's the charm, right?
All righty! I'd better go get that trick thank-you note ready for this year too!

Hmm, what to do...
Oh! Hiya, (Captain). I was just thinkin' of what kind of trap I should set for Santa this year.
I'm guessin' my thank-you letter from last year didn't reach him.
So I thought I'd make things a lil' easy for me this time around.
But I can't make it too easy for myself. Don't wanna lose the thrill, after all!
Hmm... I'm really stumped here.
Well, (Captain)? You got any riveting ideas?
Come on, I know you've got something good!
I'll give you a real thrill as a present in exchange!
So let's hear what you've got!

(Captain)! You gotta see this!
So, uh... I was trying to lay out another trap for Santa. But I fell asleep when I was only half-way done.
Then, when I woke up, there it was—right by my pillow! A present!
Look at how aged it is, how faded the lines! This is 100%, no doubt, a treasure map, right?
I'm sure Santa means it as some kind of message. "Use this, and work on your traps some more."
Thank you, Santa! Before this time next year, I'm gonna have built the best trap ever!

Season's greetings!
Tonight I'll be serving a cake I baked all by myself!
Hey wait, where are you going!

Ugh, I'm exhausted. Huh? Oh, hello, (Captain).
I was thinking of baking a nice cake and giving some to everyone.
And when I said I was going to cook something nice for dinner, they all hurriedly dragged me out of the kitchen.
I wonder why they did that...
Oh, did you want my help with something? Okay, I'll lend you a hand.
It's too bad about the cake, but it gives us something to look forward to next year.

(Captain), perfect timing! I need your help! On my signal we're going to smash through the kitchen doors!
Every single year others cook while I don't even lift a hand—and that's inexcusable.
I conjecture that Farrah and Vira are simply looking out for me.
And as their superior officer, I can't bring myself to ask them for their assistance in baking a cake.
So this year I'll break into the kitchen and spearhead a cake-baking operation.
It is my duty as someone they look up to. Don't you agree, (Captain)?
Now, let's head for the kitchen... Remember, when I give the signal—
Huh? (Captain), where did you go? You completely disappeared...

Season's greetings, (Captain)!
Have you seen the tree yet? Lyria decorated it with Vyrn.
He flew up and put the star on the top for us.
He looked so proud... Hehe, it was adorable.
Lyria would ask me if each ornament she put together looked pretty.
She worked diligently, but she still enjoyed every second of it.
In fact, I baked them some cookies for all their hard work.
See? They're shaped liked stars. I'm pretty confident in my own recipe, but would you try a bite for me?

Hehe, I see you're excited for the holiday party.
Everyone else is as well. Actually, the kitchens are so full right now I can't even squeeze in.
I expected as much, so I went ahead and baked a cake last night.
The only step left is to prepare it for serving... I'm sorry to ask, but could you help me with that?
It ended up bigger than I thought it would. In fact, it's been continually expanding since last night.
Of course, I'll pay you back with the cookies I baked.
Very good. This cake will be sure to surprise and stun everyone once we're done with it!

Now, let's head for the kitchen... Remember, when I give the signal—
Huh? (Captain), where did you go? You completely disappeared...

Season's greetings, (Captain)!
Have you seen the tree yet? Lyria decorated it with Vyrn.
He flew up and put the star on the top for us.
He looked so proud... Hehe, it was adorable.
Lyria would ask me if each ornament she put together looked pretty.
She worked diligently, but she still enjoyed every second of it.
In fact, I baked them some cookies for all their hard work.
See? They're shaped liked stars. I'm pretty confident in my own recipe, but would you try a bite for me?

Hehe, I see you're excited for the holiday party.
Everyone else is as well. Actually, the kitchens are so full right now I can't even squeeze in.
I expected as much, so I went ahead and baked a cake last night.
The only step left is to prepare it for serving... I'm sorry to ask, but could you help me with that?
It ended up bigger than I thought it would. In fact, it's been continually expanding since last night.
Of course, I'll pay you back with the cookies I baked.
Very good. This cake will be sure to surprise and stun everyone once we're done with it!

Tonight is the main event!
See here, (Captain), wipe that blank look off your face.
How long have we been practicing this carol for? Are you nervous?
Music is an essential component to an enjoyable evening. You don't have to be good as long as you have heart.
My baton shall take command of this holy night!

It's that time of the year again! And what better way is there to spend winter's longest night than around a table with the people you love?
Ha-ha! But then again, maybe the little ones are more interested in the presents from Santa.
I know I was always excited about him paying a visit when I was little!
Of course I didn't actually meet the man himself until after I grew up...
He's quite a friendly guy, and chatting with him while I helped him deliver presents was such a hoot!
Ha-ha! Selfira has grown up enough to start doubting the existence of the big guy...
But that's a huge mistake! All you have to do is open your ears, and I'm sure you'll hear him laughing tonight!

Hm? What are you looking for, (Captain)?
Oh! So you're looking for a broom and a mop! I've hidden those.
Dahahaha. On the holiest night, the fairies use a mop and broom to soar through the skies and make mischief.
So to stop them, I hid the mop and broom in a certain place.
Dahahaha! Do you think I'm talking about some urban myth? I've had my run in with them...
Listen here! During the minstrel crew's feast on the holy night, all the food disappeared into thin air.
Everyone was so sad that now we take precautions. We don't leave the mop and broom out. No...
Dahahaha! Whether or not you believe me is up to you!

Tis the season, (Captain)!
Speaking of seasons, it's quite frosty out there. It may even snow soon, methinks!
By the way, (Captain), have you heard of this?
On the most silent of winter nights, one may see a dancer in the snow by chance.
They say that those who catch a glimpse of the dancer are destined for a life-changing encounter!
Dahahaha! You know, I've actually seen her once myself long ago... I say, It was a most mezmerizing dance.
And you know what? It was the night before I first joined the order of minstrels as a guardian. True story!
Oh?
Dahaha! It really has started snowing! Perhaps another fateful encounter awaits us tonight, (Captain)!
You wish to see the dancer in the snow as well, don't you?
Come come! Together now, let us depart on a search of our own!

Tonight's a festive night, isn't it? If you want to disembark the ship, best to do so in a jiffy.
You see, wicked fairies riding mops and snow-drawn dancers will soon appear to greet Santa Claus as he flies through the night.
Who knows what kind of lively encounters you might have! Keep your wits about you.
Dahaha, you might think I'm pulling your leg, but there's wisdom in my tale.
The year end is the time when work begins to get out of hand—precisely the environment where accidents occur!
And not just that, but one accident when you're out skyfaring could be enough to cause irreversible consequences.
Therefore it's in your best interest to slow down and lead your ship with care!
I guarantee Santa Claus is guiding his reindeer with aplomb, so let's follow his example as we glide through the winter!

(Captain)! Something was brought to my attention.
Is it true that the crew holds an annual banquet on the night of wintery eve?
I also heard that crew members who are cooking-inclined prepare scrumptious dishes and cakes.
Golly, you sure are a generous leader, (Captain).
Oh, this won't do. I'm drooling again at the mere thought...
Very well! I shall put myself at your disposal!
One who doesn't work shall not get to eat!

Happy holidays, Captain! Are we going to have a party?
If we are, you need put on something nice to fit the occasion! That means something besides your everyday duds!
It's not just how you look on the outside. What you wear defines who you are. It can even change your personality.
Come on, if you're going to have fun tonight, then you need to get changed. I'll pick the outfit, ok?

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
So... what can you tell me about your outfit?
Bah! How many times do I have to tell you you're supposed to dress for the occasion?
Can't let our hard work go to waste now! You'll want to really get out there and strut your stuff!
Okay, stand in front of the mirror! I'll pick a nice one out for you! Consider it a holiday gift from me!
Ooh, there's not much time until the party! I can't wait to you get you all suited up!

Aah. (Captain), isn't that outfit something I picked out for you a while back?
You like it that much, huh? Puts a smile on my lips. Yeah, you're all ready to rock out at tonight's party!
But no.
Why, you ask? This holiday dinner is not a repeat of last year's. Think of them as one-shot events.
That goes for anything in life. It's your loss if you don't approach everything with a fresh mind-set and a fresh outfit!
Got it? Good. Now follow me to my room.
Even if it's the same outfit, you can coordinate the parts differently to achieve a different feel. This is as good a chance as any to show you.
Also you might as well use this chance to look in the mirror and take note of just how attractive you are.

Heeey, what's up, (Captain)?
You want me to help you with your banquet outfit?
...!
(Captain)! Do you understand! What a great honor! It would be! Absolutely! Oh, this is the best present ever!
Of course I'll help you! But I can't decide everything on my own.
Tell me if you've got a favorite color or fabric, or a favorite accessory. We'll base your outfit off of those!
You've gotta wear what you wanna wear, after all! Fashion is an expression of the self.
Once we've decided on the basics, I'll handle the rest.
Now, stand in front of the mirror. Stand up straight and look forward. Imagine yourself looking your best.
Do you see it? The new you is already brighter than any starlit tree!

Hm... What should I do? Who else can I invite?
Oh, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
Perfect timing. I was just throwing together a party. Wanna come?
I've asked Lowain and his bros, the class president, and some other friends. The more the merrier, right?
If you're busy, you can just pop in for a second. Everyone'll be glad to see you!
Really? Great, then follow me to fun!
This night comes but once a year, after all. Let's let loose while the letting's good!

Look, (Captain), look! There was a present waiting for me by my pillow!
Is this the work of that Santa Claus everyone's been telling me about?
I didn't sense even a whisper of a presence all night... This Santa Claus must be one incredible martial artist to move so stealthily...
Hehe... Analysis aside, I really am terribly happy.
Someday I'll discover who this Santa Claus really is, so I can thank him properly.

Season's greetings.
Ha-ha-ha. They say that this season is magical. Are you sure you want to spend the holidays with a guy like me?
Heheh... I'm glad. Now let's make the most of it!

Ha-ha-ha. I made a present for you.
As it's my specialty, you can guess what it is, but I hope you'll like it.
I made six in all though, so you'll have to roll the dice and see which one you get.
Heheh. Go on and give them a roll!

(Captain), would it make you smile if I baked a cake for you?
Ha-ha-ha. That's nice of you to think that I might look good in an apron!
The truth is that I watched Katalina bake a cake and decided to give it a try myself...
What's with that suspicious look? I can imitate anything after seeing it only once.
You knew that already? Then you should know that my cake is a perfect reproduction of Katalina's unique—
Well, I didn't expect you to run away... Ha-ha-ha. I guess I'll see if Vyrn is interested in having a slice...

(Captain), good timing.
How would you like some cake from me?
Hey, I know I'm not exactly the best patissier around, but can you at least pretend to not be so taken aback?
Haha, just kidding.
The only reason you ran away last year was because I tried to replicate Katalina's cake.
But this year, I tried imitating a few other flavors instead.
Hm, why six, you ask?
Hahaha. Don't you already know?
Anyhow why don't you try rolling this die?
Just be aware that it can land on a critical or fumble as well.

Ahh, if it isn't (Captain)... Happy holidays. I'm just resting for a bit.
Say, do you remember the cake I gave you last year? There were six flavors; you rolled a die and let luck choose for you.
Well, it seems the story of our little game has spread throughout the ship. Thanks to a certain captain.
Thus, this year, children are lined up at my door, begging for cake dice.
Heh-heh. How do you plan to make this up to me?
The whole situation was bothersome, but I found myself slightly—well, greatly enjoying myself. I'm not upset.
Also, I've saved some dice for you, so come begging at my door whenever you wish. I'll be waiting.

It's the most wonderful time of the year at last!
Hee hee, you know it, don't you? That's right. I love the holiday spirit.
But then, this is the busiest time of year for gardeners like us.
It's usually super busy! We have to make sure all the plants are looking extra festive in town and across the whole island!
But this year, I only have the one tree aboard the ship to worry about.
Funny, though. I don't feel the slightest bit sad about that.
Hee hee, I wonder why that is? You have any idea, Captain?

Tis the season, (Captain)!Now this isn't something you see everyday.
What's gotcha lookin' so excited, (Captain)?
Oh, dear... Could it be that you're excited for a certain man in red to come?
Aww, (Captain)... You're so adorable sometimes!
You've never stopped believing in him, did you?
Surely it's because you've had the gift of friends to celebrate and fill your heart with joy every year.
That's my favorite part about you, (Captain).
Hehe, oh dear... Now you've... hehe... got me all excited too!

How exciting! It's that time of the year of the again, (Captain)!
Look, look! I made a beautiful holiday wreath!
And this is a present for you. Put it around your neck.
Wow! How cute! You're all sparkly just like a holiday tree.
Ehehe... Looking at you just makes this day even better!
Even my heart shines like a star! Just kidding... Hehehe...

Happy holidays! You excited about the festivities, (Captain)?
I'm snipping some tree branches right now to use as hands for snow pals!
It's a special request from some of the kids in the crew. I guess they're really counting on me.
Ehehe, just imagining their faces light up gets me all hyped.
Here's an extra happy smile for you, (Captain)!
Just my way of spreading the joy. May you have a merry winter season, (Captain). Teehee...

What a splendid holiday! Did Santa bring you anything nice?
Oh? You say you're not a kid anymore?
Well, allow me to give you a more suitable present then. How 'bout a smooch? Mwuah!

When I think about Santa Claus, I realize just how lacking my own love is...
On a cold winter's night, Santa brings warmth to all the good boys and girls in the skydom...
But what can I do? Nothing big or grand. There are so many I can't reach out to.
Oh dear, how could I even think about giving up now? That wouldn't be love!
It might not be glamorous, and I still have a lot to learn, but at least I have someone close by to practice on... right? Hehe!

Happy holidays, (Captain)! What are you doing in the galley?
You came to help out, you say? Why, thank you! We're really strapped for helpers right now.
We need more and more food to feed an ever growing crew.
Yes, the eaters are many, but the chefs really get to shine and showcase their home cooking.
I know eating is such a delight, but try to hold on just a bit longer.
Sorry, but could I have you saute this without letting it burn?
And don't you sneak in tastes either. That'll only spoil the fun!

How about a gingerbread cookie, (Captain)? Fresh out of the oven!
Where I'm from during the holidays, er, end of the year, we always ate gingerbread men.
It was tradition to make the cookies into the shape of bad omens during the holiday festivities.
It might seem a bit barbaric, but it feels so good to just crunch into their little heads.
We all made cookies back at the orphanage... I'm sure they're making them again this year as well.
Perhaps I'll make an appearance at the orphanage once the holidays have settled down a little bit—with plenty of belated presents for everyone!

La-la-la... Why, if it isn't the captain! Have you finished with your holiday shopping?
Yep, I've finished with mine as well. Now I'm writing my greeting cards!
I just have so much I want to tell everyone at the orphanage and the Jewel Resort... I might not be able to squeeze it all in!
But expressing your love in words is a very precious thing. Just like how it's important to tell someone you love them.
It might be hard to remember exactly what someone said to you before, but if it's written down, then you can read it over and over again.
Even if I can't be with the people I love when they're feeling down... maybe this card can cheer them up in those times!
Hm? You want a card from me too, (Captain)?
I'm so glad to hear that! I'm going to send you the most beautiful card and fill it with love! Teehee, look forward to it!

In my family we used to spend the holidays singing together.
How I used to love those songs...
I pray that such happy times may come again someday.

Heehee... What a beautiful night, (Captain).
Hm? Is it so strange for me to be laughing?
I'm not too fond of hymns, but the flicker of the candle flames is so lovely.
Watching its gentle movements can be so relaxing.
Teehee, don't you agree?
But I'm just glad to be able to spend this time with you, (Captain).
Happy holidays.

Hehe, can you feel it, (Captain)?
This mysterious feeling that's overcome us...
Tonight may be a night like any other, but it feels special somehow.
People in times past called it a divine power that graced the skies.
Haha, it's okay if this is all new to you.
I imagine it is purely because of my powers in necromancy that such matters are so apparent to me.
Mm-hm. Makes me sensitive to these sorts of things.
But it also makes me feel so lonely when no one can share in the sentiment.
The holiness of the night keeps my husband and child at bay, far away from my side.
(Captain), will you protect them in my stead?
At least until the holy night passes...

Haha, look, (Captain). That tree is so beautifully decorated.
I'm not very comfortable with the holy night itself, but I do like the trees.
It reminds me of better times spent with my family, decorating our tree.
My necromancy has given me something of an allergy to this evening...
But those twinkling lights do feel like they're granting me and my family their blessing, if only temporarily.
May you have a blessed night too, (Captain). Happy holidays.

Oh, (Captain). Enjoying the night so far?
Hehe, I was making a wreath with my husband and son. What do you think?
That reminds me, have you ever considered the meaning of a wreath?
The ringed shape represents eternity. It must seem so ironic for a family like mine, where the dead and living stay together...
Yet eternity is still something I wish for, even if I'm no longer worthy of it after involving myself in the dark arts...
At the very least, allow me to pray for eternal happiness for both you and my family.

Katalina: Wh-What are you doing, Lowain? Why are you.. hugging me?
Lowain: Feel that? That's my heart burnin' for you. And I can feel you burnin' too. I don't care about the presents, Kat. All I want is you.
Katalina: Lowain.. Oh my..

Just gotta unclog this clog, and...

Happy Holidays!
I've heard that milk and the holidays go hand in hand.
So I went and got you a bunch of this great milk!
I was thinking we could sit here, relax, and enjoy it. You know... together.
It's just my opinion, but... I think a day like this is better spent... together. Hehe.

The town's night lights at this time of the year are amazing.
You can feel the holiday spirit everywhere. I'm starting to get into a merry mood myself.
How about you, (Captain)? Ah, you too?
Haha. In that case why don't we take a stroll through town together?

This is just my take, but it feels like everyone's tired from the goings-on in their lives.
Especially you, (Captain). You're always going out of your way to help someone...
So you should spend tonight recovering from the rigors of this journey. It's a holiday, ya know. Plus it's cold outside.
Here, have some hot milk. Bottoms up.
Isn't it nice to have a quiet moment on this day where anything can happen?

With the town lit up so nicely, there's no doubt that tonight is the holiest night.
What do I want for a present? Haha, thank you, but just the sentiment is enough.
But if I had to pick something, well... How about we head back and enjoy a cup of hot milk together?
You can wait with me while I prepare it.
Hehe, spending that time with you is better than any other present in the world.

With that out of the way, it's time for a holiday toast!
Wait. You're a little young to drink, aren'tcha? No worries! I made sure to get some fruit juice just in case!

Heh heh heh... A special festive night like tonight calls for some heavy duty partying!
Hrm... With a little bit of grape juice, if you know what I mean.
Hm? You wanna celebrate with me too, (Captain)?
What a great kiddo you are! Here. Drink some of this, (Captain)!
It's fine, it's fine! Just grape juice!
Now then... Three cheers to the holiday season, (Captain)!

Happy holidays! Let's get this festive party started! Drink until you get into the spirit!
Gulp, gulp, gulp...
Aaah!
Huh? Is that Santa? Good work, old man! How about a drink?
Waaait a minute... You're not Santa; you're (Captain)!
Sorry... You're in that costume, so I couldn't tell.
Wha? Even if you were Santa, I shouldn't give him the sauce?
Uh... You gotta point, (Captain). If Santa went around smelling like liquor, it might hit a little too close to home for some people.
Okay, okay. I've seen the error of my ways. Here, I'll give you some of this funky cheese as an apology.
After you hand out all the presents, come back with some juice so we can say cheers together!

...
Hm? Where'd er'body go?
Hey, (Captain)... What's the dillio?
What! The party's over?
...
I-I remember what happened! Everybody was having a good time!
We were all together... And toasted...
And then...
And then...
Um...
W-whatever! (Captain), let's get our drink on again!
It'll be part two of whatever happened last night!

Happy... holi... daze... Oogh... My head's killin' me...
Not sure I have it in me to party with everyone right now...
Urp... I'm gonna crash in my room... I'll poke my head in again when things calm down...

Nngha... Guess I overdid it with the spirits...
You really picked a good time to show up, (Captain).
Couldja... maybe get me some water?
Blegh... M-my head's killing me.
Hm? Water? For me? Thanks... Gulp, gulp, gulp... Ahhh...
Ungh... Is this really water? It tastes kind of... sugary.

Ugh... Happy... holidays...
Ah, (Captain)... Are you enjoying the party?
Pant...
Even though... I'm here... Sorry, I can't...
Hm? What're you... giving me?
Eek... Aah? C-cold snow? Feels nice...
Pant... That feels better...
Ugh... Never mind...
I'm gonna sleep in my room... When I feel better, we can exchange presents...

Huff... Huff...
Bu-urrpp!
Hap... Holid... Burp!
Huff... (Captain)? I wancha... to hab a good night...
Buh... If you stay here... Oh you'll get a wet present you really... won't want...
Wha?
Huh?
W-what... That's not what I meant... I was talking about a monster...
Bah!
There it is! Hiccup! Let ol' Lamretta... take care of it...
(Captain)... go on without me... Live... for the both of us...
I... can handle this... So hurry...
Go... Now... While I can hold it off... Run you fool...

Happy holidays! Let's make this the most happenin' holiday party there ever done was!
With that out of the way, it's time for a holiday toast!
Wait. You're a little young to drink, aren't ya? No worries! I made sure to get some fruit juice just in case!

Heh heh heh... A special festive night like tonight calls for some heavy duty partying!
Hrm... With a little bit of grape juice, if you know what I mean.
Hm? You wanna celebrate with me too, (Captain)?
What a great kiddo you are! Here. Drink some of this, (Captain)!
It's fine, it's fine! Just grape juice!
Now then... Three cheers to the holiday season, (Captain)!

Happy holidays! Let's get this festive party started! Drink until you get into the spirit!
Gulp, gulp, gulp...
Aaah!
Huh? Is that Santa? Good work, old man! How about a drink?
Waaait a minute... You're not Santa; you're (Captain)!
Sorry... You're in that costume, so I couldn't tell.

Season's greetings!
This time of year always reminds me of the times Vane and I stayed up late to try and see Santa Claus!

Ah... It's the holiday season. But I don't feel like going out with all the crowds. I guess I should tidy up my room a little...
Hm? Oh, hey there, (Captain). You want to help me clean my room? No way! I can't let you do that!
No!
I mean, it's not like I have anything to hide. It's just that you're the captain and it's your holiday break, you see...
Humph... You don't give up, do you? Fine. I'll let you help me this just this once, (Captain)!
In exchange, I'll take you someplace to eat after we're done! Heheh... Now where should we go?

Today's the holiday party, huh? I remember going to those parties when I was a kid...
Heh-heh, it was so funny! Vane could never remember the words to the songs and made a mess of holiday caroling...
So I'd be sure to sing to him over and over again for practice. Ha-ha! What a great memory...
Huh? You want me to sing something now? I dunno... You can't just put me on the spot!
You really really want me to? Well, if you insist... But just a little.
Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Jingle all the way! Oh what fun it is to sleigh on this jolly holiday!
A-ha-ha-ha! You're embarrassing me with all that clapping...
All right! Now it's your turn to sing for me, (Captain)... And don't try to blush your way out of it!

Happy holidays!
(Captain), did you look outside?
There's so much snow! It's a fluffy white world out there!
When I was young I would play outside by making snowmen on days like this.
Together, the body and head would be made of three big balls. The head would get a helmet which was just a bucket, and I think I even added a sword to make him look a soldier.
I'd name him after a famous warrior, and then Vane and I would salute him.
Heh heh... Those were fun times.
Huh? You want to see a warrior snowman?
As a matter of fact, I could make an even better snowman than before!
Will you help me make him especially big?
Let's surprise all the crew members!

Happy Holidays!
Thanks for keeping watch out here on the deck despite it being so cold. Here, I brought you something warm to drink.
It's so cold you can even see your breath...
This reminds me of the time I patrolled the streets of Feendrache on a cold night like this before I became captain.
The cold was so brutal, I could feel it seeping into my bones...
An old lady thanked me and gave me a cup of hot tea to drink when she saw me patrolling out in the cold.
The warmth of the tea and the feeling of being depended on made me so happy. Thanks to that, I was able to keep going.
Maybe that's why I wanted to come and bring you a warm drink myself.
Since the party preparations are pretty much complete, would it be all right if I stayed and kept watch with you?
Heheh. All right then, let's stick this out together!

Lancelot (Event)

Is it visiting hours already?
Oh... It's that time of year again, huh? Heh... I suppose people everywhere are celebrating the season.
When I was a kid, I never imagined spending the holidays like this...
I wonder if Santa will pay me a visit here... I hope he will. It'd surely be nice...

Slipping into secure places on a winter's night...
And leaving gifts for children in their stockings, only to slip out again without a trace...
Yeah... That's jolly Old Saint Nick.
When you think about it... isn't Santa Claus the ultimate escape artist?
Tonight I'll be Santa. I planned my escape route just for this day. Yes... I'll use the chimney!
And then... I'll bring you a special gift... The gift of reunion. Just wait for me...

Zzz... Zzz...
(Captain) visits the underground dungeon where Lancelot is being held to find the young knight fast asleep, his head resting on a burlap pillow.
(Captain) moves closer to call out his name and wake him, but thinks twice after seeing the peaceful expression on his sleeping face.
(Captain) softly whispers happy holidays before carefully placing a small bundle tied with bright red ribbon next to his pillow.
Mm... No, no...
It's jingle all the way... Listen...
With his eyes still closed, Lancelot mumbles as a warm smile begins to spread across his lips.
While wondering what sort of dream could make Lancelot so happy, (Captain) quietly slips out of the dungeon.

(Captain) hears the beautiful sound of a bell on the deck of the ship and heads to its source.
There (Captain) spots someone familiar. And the source of the sound is not a bell, but the rhythmically timed sound of chains clanging together.
Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh! Hey!
(Captain). Happy holidays! How are you?
Why the face? Oh, you think it's odd I'm on the bow of the ship?
What about the dungeon? Well actually my body is still there. This is me in spirit. Like some sort of miracle.
Lancelot comes down from the bow and takes (Captain)'s hand.
I've never felt so alive. I feel almost possessed.
Heh heh! Let's enjoy this wonderful night!

Oh, it's you, (Captain)... Ah, I see. You're here because it's the holy night tonight...
Because it's the holy night...
It's the holy night! What are you doing here?
That can't be right! It's a special night! It's party night! A time for celebration!
There must be other people you want to see at an important time like this!
Now, go and be free! You can go wherever you want, so you should do just that and have fun!
Make sure you have my share of fun too!

Lancelot and Vane

Vane: Lancey, could you help me out? If you could get that food over there and put it on a plate that would be great.
Lancelot: On it. There isn't much space here, so I'm going to move the food over there.
This looks amazing... Maybe I'll take one small sample...
Nom!
...
(Captain)! You caught me red-handed!
What? I could bribe you with one of these? All right...
Vane: Hey! Stop that, (Captain)! You know the rules!
Lancey! Don't tell me you're an accomplice! I can tell you ate some too!
Lancelot: Sorry, Vane! They just looked so good...
Vane: I'm glad you like the way they look, but you need to wait! You know I made other stuff too, right?
Lancelot: Right... (Captain), could you go wait somewhere far away from the food?

Vane: Seeing kids waiting excitedly for Santa Claus sure brings back memories!
Lancelot: We were like that once... Remember that time I stayed over at your place?
Vane: Yeah! We dumped all this candy on our bed and ate them while waiting for Santa.
Lancelot: What's that, (Captain)? Did we get to see Santa?
Well, Vane's grandmother came and told us to hurry up and go to bed. Then she tucked us in...
Vane: And the bed was so warm that both Lancey and I fell right asleep. We were so upset the next morning!
Lancelot: Yeah, we were both so sleepy, we couldn't help it... Guess we really were just kids back then.
Vane: Hey, do you have any holiday memories to share, (Captain)?
Lancelot: Oh, I want to hear them too! Do tell!

There's something so romantic about a snow-filled sky.
I hope I can enjoy it with someone special someday...

Do you remember what we did on this same night, one year ago?
I told you I wanted to look out at the snowy sky with someone special.
To tell you the truth, I... I think that may be within reach...
After all, I'm here with you, (Captain).
And with so many precious friends here with me, spending tonight with someone special might not just be a fantasy after all.

Ah, (Captain), there you are.
The holiday party was fun, wasn't it? Everyone really let their hair down.
It's late, we better be heading back. The streets have gotten pretty quiet.
Hehe. I'm glad I could spend the holidays with you this year as well.
I can't tell you how happy I am right now.

Phew... This ought to be far enough from the party...
Sorry to drag you away from the festivities, (Captain).
I won't keep you too long, or else everyone'll worry.
I just wanted to borrow you to look at the stars with me for a little while. If possible, I'd like to do this together every year...
I feel like the more time I spend with you, the greedier I get.
But I find myself wondering... if that's such a bad thing. Weird, huh?

Oh, (Captain)! I wanted to compliment you on the party. Everyone seems to be enjoying⁠—
U-um, is something the matter? You surprised me, taking hold of my arm like that. Is there somewhere you wanted to go?
Choose: Let's go stargazing.
That was unexpected... I didn't think you'd just spirit me away like this.
Still, I'm happy you remembered... That I said I wanted to go stargazing with you every year.
Oh, no wonder it was so cold. It's started to snow. Look—it's so pretty, how the flakes shine against the night sky...
Hehe. Looks like we've made yet another wonderful memory together.

What a wonderful holiday night... Everyone seems so happy.
Spending a night like tonight with someone you know is important too, yes?
Oh, how wonderful it would be if a day like today were to last forever.
Hee hee hee... I'm so happy to have the opportunity to travel with you and the rest of the crew, (Captain).

...!
Hmm? Why am I in such high spirits?
Silly you. Today's that time of the year when you do something to make another happy.
I'm taking after Santa and giving all my merriful cheer!
It's just such a lovely time of the year. Maybe I'll walk around and hand out flowers again.
(Captain), would you like to join me?
Everyone will be smiling thanks to the scent of my flowers!

Happy holidays, (Captain).
The town's children were sad that no snow was falling, so I gave them a flurry of petals instead.
I launched clumps of flowers into the air and let them land atop everyone's heads. Boop!
Heehee. I thought I might have gone overboard with the bright colors, but it seems to have matched everyone's bright smiles.
This holy night is absolutely wonderful. Happiness truly comes from doing something nice to bring a smile to someone's face.

Oh my! What a marvelous tree! Did the crew put it up just for you?
But this tree is so large, I can hardly wrap my arms around it. Dragging it here must've been a chore. I suppose it was a great, strong person who did it.
And they've got the tree in such a large pot... Could they be planning to replant it after the festivities are over? What a kind soul.
They put in all this effort, just to have a wonderful holiday evening with you, (Captain). You're very blessed.
Hehe. Look at how everyone's gathered around the tree, hoping to adorn it. What a lucky plant. It's starting to remind me of you, actually.
Hmm... How shall I decorate it?
Oh, I know. There!
Hehe. I've dressed the tree in a tinsel of flowers.
How lovely it'd be if I could embrace you so, and wrap you up in love and warmth.
Let's spend many more splendid holidays together, (Captain). This year, and the next, and so on into forever...

Oof!
I'm so sorry, (Captain)! I didn't hurt you, did I?
Sigh... I'm always telling people not to run in the hallways and then I go and ignore my own warnings.
Sorry I was in such a hurry, but preparations for the military's winter holiday are underway.
By the way, do you have time later, (Captain)?
I finally have the chance to show you around Luxurios while it's geared up for the holidays.
And maybe you could kind of help me with a little bit of shopping... Or not...
Huh? You will?
Great! Thank you! Why don't we go right now? Come on, follow me!

Haha... Everyone's really in the spirit...
(Captain), are you enjoying the festivities as well?
What's this, you ask? I thought I would sneak into Cain's room and place it next to his pillow.
Haha... Even though he always asks me to stop treating him like a child.
Actually... I have one for you too, (Captain)!
You can't open it yet. You'll have to wait until tomorrow morning.
Hehe. I'll sneak the present into your room a bit later.

...
Eek!
Oh, it's you, (Captain)... What a surprise...
Sorry, I must've startled you just as well.
I just got back from putting a present by Cain's bedside.
And was actually just about to go to your room...

Happy holidays, Boss!
You must have a great many things to attend to at this time of year, but remember that your health always comes first!

Holidays spent with the crew are the best.
I used to till the fields, back before you picked me up. The fields were always so cold.
But now that I'm surrounded by so much food and gift-giving, I could cry.
Sob... Boss, I've decided—I'm following you for life!

How nice that we get to spend another merry holiday season... You know, it's got me thinking about things...
What do you say to checking out the snow together?
I've always wanted to watch the falling holiday snow with you.
Yes? Really? Woo-hoo! Much appreciated, Boss!
Let's get your lizard friend to come along too! Jirokichi can play with him!

Boss, season's greetings! Jirokichi and me are jumping with joy to spend this holy night with you!
We heard you're taking us out somewhere later?
Ooh! This year's party is gonna be at that super fancy restaurant?
Gyahaha! Our crew's really come into its own to be able to dine at such a nice place!
Just thinking of all we've been through in our travels brings a tear to my eye!
Can we get going already? I'm just dying to go!

Boss! Come and take a look at this! We just finished roasting a huge bird on a spit!
Thanks to you, it's become tradition to spend the holidays together—as a crew.
Gosh, I can't help gettin' choked up every time we're about to feast and all the grub lines up on that huuuge dining table!
I owe it all to you, Boss. If you hadn't made me into your underling, I wouldn't have ever thought the holidays were worth celebratin'.
Come on now! Let's gorge ourselves on the spread and make this a night to remember!

Mena: Hey, (Captain)! You know where Mina went?
Mona: We've been looking for her for awhile now, but we can't find her anywhere.
Since it's a special night and all, we thought we'd get dressed up for the occasion.
Just check it out. Isn't this red just gorgeous?
Mena: All three of us were going to match outfits for tonight's party, but it looks like Mina got embarassed and ran off.
???: There's no way that outfit would suit me! I'm not wearing it!
Mena: M-Mina! Where are you?
Mina: Eep! Gotta get away!
Mona: Ugh... Mina, stop being so stubborn.
Sigh. (Captain), could you wait here with me until Mina comes out?

Mina: Happy holidays.
Me? As you can see, I'm baking a pie for tonight's celebration.
I make one every year to share with my sisters, but this year I wanted to share with the whole crew to show my appreciation.
We won't be able to finish this many pies? No, but think of how many crew members there are. Wouldn't we need at least this many?
Mena's Voice: Miiinaaa! Aren't you done baking yet?
Mona's Voice: We're already changed for the party. You need to get ready too, Mina!
Mina: I really can't get away. I haven't made nearly enough pies.
No, (Captain)! You've got it all wrong! I'm not using pastry-making to put off changing into a dress!
Hey, let go of my hand! Where do you think you're taking me? I refuse to wear some froofy, frilly outfit! I refuuuse!

See? It's filled with my feelings! To show the gratitude I have for you every day, I'm gonna sing you a special song...
It's called Don't Forget Santa...

Happy, happy holidays!
It's that special, sacred night again!
Tonight it's just you, me, and this stage!
I'll sing for you. Now and forevermore.
Even if everything else fades away, I hope this song stays with you.
I call it Goodnight, Silent Bell.

Happy, Happy holidays, (Captain)!
It's that Lilele season again!
Lilele on the stage! Holiday special live!
Get ready! I'll sing for you and forever more!
Snowflakes fade, and our time together may end, but the memories of you will always be in my heart.
I'll never forget you... Snow White Memories.

I'm baaack!
Phew... The holiday concert went off without a hitch.
I'm glad the fans were enjoying themselves too.
But now it's all about spending tonight with you, (Captain)!
Nope, I'm not tired at all! I'm still bursting with energy. This holiday evening is just getting started!
You get the privilege of hearing an exclusive private performance, starting with...
A song I call Powder Snow Glitter Glow.

Happy holidays! (Captain), you know what today is, don't you?
Yup! So, hang on to your hats, because at the show tonight, I'll be unveiling my stupendous gift to you all.
No, it won't be cake. It won't be gemstones. Aaand it won't be toys...
My special gift to you all is a sparkling, splendid evening!
I hope you're ready, (Captain).
You've done so much for me, so today I'll be singing for you. You are My Holiday Knight.

Lily

Ahaha! You're on! You said cookies, so I'll go with gingerbread!
Ooh, ooh! You know what goes best with gingerbread? Lily does! That's right! Me!
You're wondering why? Because I love gingerbread! And I'm sure gingerbread loves me back!
It's mutual affection! Ahh, I could really go for an extra large gingerbread cookie right now!

(Captain), the townspeople praised me!
I went around and found houses that didn't have trees. Then I made them some out of ice!
After that lots of people started asking me to come to their house to make them one too!
I did so much good today! Praise me, praise me!
Pleeease!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I was just helping out with preparations for the celebration!
I put lots of decorations on the holiday cake and tree!
It'll be so much fun because of all my hard work!
My final task is to lead you to the venue!
So, (Captain)... Grab my hand, and I'll take you to the party!

Are you feeling stiff in the shoulders, (Captain)? How about I give you a nice massage to loosen up!
There? Feel better? I can massage your back too!
Ehehe, aren't I the best girl? I helped out so much to get the party ready too!
Do you think Santa's going to come later? I'm hoping to wake up and find the holiday stockings in my room to be filled with presents galore!
(Captain) hides the present prepared for Lily, opting instead to fiddle with the stockings that night.

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I seem excited, do I? You yourself have been waiting with bated breath these past several days.
The holy night is delightful, isn't it? The sounds of plaisir (pleasure) ring out across the town...
Ah, you don't need to be so alarmed. Even I've been looking forward to this evening.
Santa Claus will bring the sounds of happiness to anyone who's been good today.
What's wrong? There's such alarm on your face...
Heh, are you worried about whether Santa Claus will visit you, (Captain)?
Yes... If he doesn't come, then I'll play you my favorite hymne.
Heh-ha, there's no need to be polite. I will play a divine acorde synchronized with the lights.
Ah, this will be delightful. Right, (Captain)!

Lowain

Happy holidays!
This season's gonna be the best ever! Be merry!

Lowain: Smarts!
All Three: w00t! w00t!
Elsam: Moolah!
All Three: w00t! w00t!
Tomoi: Generosity!
All Three: w00t! w00t!
Lowain: Well, if it ain't the captain! Season's greetings!
Elsam and Tomoi: Happy holidays!
Lowain: We were talking about the presents we want from Santa!
I could never ask for Kat though. If she really came to me all gift-wrapped, it could only mean Santa brainwashed her! And that's not what I want!
Wait up, bros! I just realized something!
Elsam and Tomoi: Tell us about it, man!
Lowain: Listen good... Santa... and Kat...
All Three: Kat dressed up as Santa?
Elsam: My mind's exploding just thinking about it!
Tomoi: Oh man, can you picture that?
Lowain: Aah! I think my heart just skipped a beat!
All Three: Tubular, dude!

Lowain: You bros got any ideas?
Elsam: It ain't ever an easy choice...
Tomoi: Might as well just stick with the usual chicken.
Lowain: Goin' traditional's always nutritional, but with our crew gettin' so big, I dunno anymore, man...
Elsam: Word up. Everyone's got different tastes.
Tomoi: We could always go eeny, meeny, miny, moe, you know.
Lowain: Ah, season's greetings, (Captain). We were sweatin' hardcore over what to serve tonight.
Tomoi: This is, like, boss-level stuff we're talkin' here.
Elsam: Well, if we're just goin' up against a few imperial imp-eciles, us three with Kat wouldn't even break a sweat.
Lowain: But when the ship hits the fan, Kat ain't against getting a helping hand from Lancey.
Elsam: Synergy's everything in battle, if you know I'm talkin' about.
Lowain: But, dude, we're still kinda screwed with this dinner menu...
How 'bout we kick up the vibes for now? Might spark a few ideas.
A one, and a two...
All Three: Wahey!
Lowain: Whoooaa! I just got, like, a major flash of inspiration, dudes!

Elsam & Tomoi: Season's greets, (Captain)!
Elsam: Oh, Lowain? He's preppin' tonight's holiday grub.
Tomoi: We're tryna reach new heights, so it might take a while.
Lowain: Dum-de-do...
Blech!
Whew, talk about a close one... Almost infected the grub with my barf...
Ah, happy holidays, (Captain). We were tryna make eats the Baotorda way.
That Draph hunk's really got his own style down.
Elsam: He's just burstin' with Lumiel vibes.
Tomoi: We figured Lowain could be more Lumiel-like by incorporatin' humming into his routine.
Lowain: Tonight's, like, the Holy Eve after all. We figured a change of pace was in order.
Elsam: So I thought long and hard about what makes the dude's cookin' so special, and then I figured it out! The secret ingredient's gotta be his hummin'!
Tomoi: I can't get enough of how his low-frequency humming's totally in sync with the simmer of his frying pan.
Lowain: The Lumiel way ain't so much about vibes; it's more about goin' with the flow.
Like, if you put too much heart into it, the flavor ends up full of heart too.
Tomoi: Anyways, we figured humming would be a good place to start...
Lowain: La-di-da—
Ngh...
Elsam: Looks like you're not cut out for that bass sound, Lowain...
Lowain: Shoot... I might have to get in some voice training before next year rolls around...

Lowain Bros: ...!
(Captain) enters the galley to find the Lowain bros gathered around a cutting board.
Elsam: Oh hey, (Captain)! Kappa holidays!
Tomoi: Sorry, fam. We got all caught up watchin' Lowain slice that salmun.
Lowain: The voice training I started wasn't really workin' out, so I ditched it and decided to try makin' some kappa-style sushi this year.
But just tryin' to cut the fish right was gnarly enough, so instead of makin' it all neat, we're doin' deconstructed sushi.
Elsam: ...
Tomoi: I dunno though, dude... Deconstructed? I just don't like the sound of it.
Elsam: Yeah... I mean, deconstructed's got con right in the name. Think we oughta change it?
Lowain: ...
Tomoi: Well, maybe it's kappa. Not everybody'd hear it that way, right?
Lowain: Mmm... Just to be safe, maybe we call it... Unlaced sushi? Unleashed? Inside out?
Hmm...
The bros furrow their brows, grappling with this thorny problem even as they continue to slice.

Lowain (Event)

Lowain: Hey, nice timing, Captain! We could totally use your input on something!
Elsam: We've been discussing this forever and finally nailed it down—Operation Holiday Confession!
Tomoi: First, we come down with some sorta lung infection. Then Kat comes in and...
Lowain: What's that, Captain? The holidays are almost over?
Elsam: Aww, gosh... Dude, we spent way too much time mulling over the details...
Tomoi: So how about this Operation Holiday Confession?
All Three: Back to the drawing board!

Tomoi: Bwahaha! Yo, (Captain), you gotta hear this! Lowain actually believed in San—
Lowain: Shut it! Who doesn't believe in Santa when they're a kid?
Elsam: Nah, that fairy tale's for toddlers. 'Sides, who seriously rides on a sleigh? It's all about the carriage.
Tomoi: Gahaha, so horses are where it's at, huh? Whew, never woulda known if we didn't ask though. Who woulda guessed Lowain believed in something so whack.
Lowain: Heh, shoulda kept to myself about it.
Elsam: Hahah... Really got me wonderin' about Santa's ride though...
Tomoi: Ahaha...
Huh? Hold it, Sammy...
Elsam: Could it be magic? Maybe Santa's this world-class sorcerer or sumthin...
Lowain: Sigh... Hey, Tommy...
Tomoi: Oh snap, don't tell me you've fallen off the wagon too, Sammy...
Elsam: So what are you asking for this year, (Captain)? I asked for a ginormous spoon!

Elsam:...
Yo, (Captain)! Can we rap for a bit?
It's killer cold today. That's why I wanna brew a hot soup that'll keep the Santa train chuggin' all night.
But who knows when he's gonna show up. So I was gonna find a big ol' heating stone in case I need to get a cold soup boilin' again...
Lowain: Basically it's up to us to dip into Sammy's soup of the day.
Tomoi: Don't want him wakin' up in the morning and gettin' butthurt over leftover soup.
Lowain: Thanks for being an extra mouth, (Captain). Sammy went into overdrive and filled this huge pot to the top.
Tomoi: Whoa, what? Yo! Pot's dry as a bone!
Lowain: Huh? That ain't right, man... Did some other crewmates polish it off?
Tomoi: Nah, don't think so. Check this out. A tube of hair gel with a card that says "Thank You."
Lowain: And it's that limited edition stuff Sammy wanted that no one can get anymore...
Lowain & Tomoi: ...
The Lowain bros exchange baffled looks. They have no idea how to explain what occurred while everyone was sound asleep.
Eventually they shrug it off and go off to do other things. With today being a day of gift-giving and mirth, there's no time to waste on piffling mysteries.

Lowain: ...
Tomoi: Say, Lowain. Do we got more food on the table than we did last year?
Lowain: Huh? Yeah... I guess. Just to be safe. Might be one more guest than we planned for. Happens.
Tomoi: Right... Sure. Never know who might turn up, huh?
Elsam: Wait. Lowain, are you puttin' out goodies for Santa too?
Lowain: N-no way, nuh-uh, nohow! You're the only one Santa's gonna visit around here, Sammy!
Tomoi: Pffft. Hahaha! You said it. You an' me just ain't pure enough, bro!
Lowain: ...
Lowain sets the extra meal in the cupboard. That evening, when he opens the cupboard, there is a surprise waiting for him.
Someone scarfed it... And Sammy's the only one who knew that food was here.
Tomoi: No way would Sammy eat something you said was for Santa.
Lowain: So you sayin' Santa's for real?
Tomoi: Beats me, bro.
Tomoi and Lowain stare in silence at the canister of rare spice and the glasses cleaning cloth left neatly beside the empty plate.

How do I usually spend the holidays? Well...
I used to count the festival fires burning on each island from way up high.
Everyone prays for their loved ones during this season.
There is a great peace that blankets the world...
It's a truly wonderful time of year... Sorry?
Yes, of course I spend it alone...
Now why have you given me this plate of food, (Captain)?
It's very kind of you, but I think perhaps Vyrn would enjoy it more than I...

What was it... Ah yes, happy holidays. That is the greeting that the people of this world use today, is it not?
And there's a banquet tonight? Then I shall try to pass the time without sowing any seeds of unrest at your gathering.
But spending this holy night alone would be sad, you say? No... It's just I don't particularly understand the minds of people yet.
However, I now see that you were concerned about me spending the holidays alone.
Just knowing that you are there brings me joy, (Captain).

Happy holidays.
Hm. I can't say that I've grown accustomed to speaking such a greeting.
I do apologize for declining to attend the party last year.
However, I was overcome by a mysterious feeling while watching from afar.
As I observed the smiles and laughter of that wintery scene, I felt a warmth spreading across my chest.
Is that what you call happiness?
If it is, then conversing with you now at this very instant is also my moment of happiness.

The winter holiday... I used to spend it with Teena and my mother back home.
Never mind... Forget what I said.

It was on a night like this when Teena got angry at me.
Even though it was a holiday, all I did was spend it swinging my sword.
Heh. I guess that's why I'm always the odd one out.

Lucius: What is it, (Captain)? What do you have there in your hands? Huh? Letters from all the children aboard the Grandcypher?
Ah, of course... Letters addressed to Santa Claus.
("A teddy bear." Heh... There was a time when Teena wanted the same thing.)
("A picture of Leviathan." That's one macho kid.)
("A world where I don't have to eat veggies.")

Lucius instinctively checks to see who this letter is from.

Lucius: Heh... You and me, both. Looks like we'll get along just fine.

(Captain) looks at Lucius quizzically, but Lucius simply flashes his captain a knowing smile.

Another holy night arrives...
Mm, I was just revisiting a past memory.
A memory of when a much younger Teena begged Santa Claus to bring her a teddy bear.
I worked my fingers to the bone in making one for her as a present.
It came out ugly as sin, but she loved it all the same.
I'll never forget the smile on her face. That was the best gift I could ever receive.
Heh. And here I am rambling on about such an embarrassing reflection. I ask that you keep this between the two of us.

Gehehe...
Hm? You found that creepy, (Captain)?
Well, it's just that I found something really surprising earlier in Teena's room.
I thought I'd seen that teddy bear somewhere before, but then I realized it was a present I gave to her a long time ago.
If you ask me, she should just toss out something that old.
Then again, taking good care of your possessions isn't necessarily a bad thing. Hm...

I was just... Hahaha...
Haha! Don't look at me—hehe—with such suspicious eyes! Haha!
Heh. I thought I would pull a Santa—haha—to thank you for everything! Haha!
After all it's the season to be giving. And we all know Santa brings good little crew members presents! Haha!
Hehehe! But you've already caught me! Haha!
Hehehe! Oh! What if you joined me tonight? Haha!
We could bring presents to the rest of the crew! Hahaha!
We'll be just like the real Santa! Haha! How about it?

Hehe... (Captain)!
Ahaha! What? Where am I going with my gun?
Hehehe... You know where! Bwahaha! It's the holy night.
Which can only mean... Haha! I'm going turkey hunting! Gyuh!
You know we can't do without a turkey! Bwahaha!
Hehehe... Leave it to me. I may not look it, but I'm a good hunter!
Hehe! (Captain), here I go!
Hahaha! I'ma catch a big one! You just wait! Bwahaha!

Hehehe, you came at a good time, (Captain)! Haha!
Heh, why don't you take a bite of this? Hahaha!
I made a special mushroom stew for this special, holy night.
Hehe, I did a pretty good job, but nobody wanted to give it a try! Ahaha!
Relax... Heh, i-it's mostly made of mushrooms I bought at the store! Bwahaha!
Hehehehe... Huh? Yeah, I said, "mostly." The rest I found, hehe.
Ahaha! It's fine. I tried them all, so they're not poisonous!
Hehehe, don't you trust me?

Sorry to tell you, but today's festivities aren't really my thing.
I've gotta get back to drawing anyway... My next work? I'll let you in on a few details.
It's story about Santa's mischievous son who befriends a fragile, sickly young boy. I'm drawing the chimney scene now...

Ah, the holiday season always reminds me of my childhood. Especially the year I came to love all things romantic.
My parents bought me a book on anatomy, and certain drawings in it really grabbed my attention.
My parents got the wrong idea and thought I wanted to be a doctor or something. I felt so guilty seeing their excitement.
Oh look, it's snowing!

The scenery is so pretty... Bright little snowflakes falling gently through the air...
Tonight the sky is overflowing with love, don't you think? The weather is chilly, but the day is filled with warm hearts...
I bet that fancy guy is saying I made dinner reservations just for you today...
And the young guy says I'm not dressed for such a nice place...
Then the fancy guy says Don't fret. No one's stopping us...
Ahhh... How sweet!

(Captain), do you happen to be free right now?
I was just thinking of taking a walk around town on this festive night for some creative inspiration.
I thought of going alone at first, given how busy everyone is and that I'd simply be drawing sketches.
But there's so much going on out there that I'm not sure I can handle it alone.
So please... If you can just accompany me...

It's a story about Santa's sloppy son and a sickly, deadpan young man. I'm drawing the chimney scene now.

Ah, the holiday season always reminds me of my childhood. Especially the year I came to love all things romantic.
My parents bought me a book on anatomy, and certain drawings in it really grabbed my attention.
My parents got the wrong idea and thought I wanted to be a doctor or something. I felt so guilty seeing their excitement.
Oh look, it's snowing!

The scenery is so pretty... Bright little snowflakes falling gently through the air...
Tonight the sky is overflowing with love, don't you think? The weather is chilly, but the day is filled with warm hearts...
I bet that fancy guy is saying I made dinner reservations just for you today...
And the young guy says I'm not dressed for such a nice place...
Then the fancy guy says Don't fret. No one's stopping us...
Ahhh... How sweet!

(Captain), do you happen to be free right now?
I was just thinking of taking a walk around town on this festive night for some creative inspiration.
I thought of going alone at first, given how busy everyone is and that I'd simply be drawing sketches.
But there's so much going on out there that I'm not sure I can handle it alone.
So please... If you can just accompany me...

Lyria (Event)

Happy holidays!
Wow, the tree is so shiny! It's beautiful!

Say... do you think I've been really good this whole year?
I wonder if Santa will come by and visit us again...
Ooh... I'm so anxious tonight, I don't think I'll get a wink of sleep!

(Captain), happy holidays!
I wonder if it will snow. I would love that so much.
Oh, but wait! If it snowed, then Santa would have such a tough time...
Hmm... I know!
How about we prepare something that will warm Santa up?

This needs... pepper, salt, and butter... and then...
Gasp! (Captain)! Are you here to buy some things too?
Actually, I'm out collecting the things we need to prepare the meal for tonight!
I'd like to try my hand at a full-course meal...
It's almost like preparing a small little festival for everyone to enjoy. I'm very excited.
Since it's so cold out, I'm thinking of making something very warm for Santa Claus!
I'll put my everything into making the best meal I can! You just sit back and enjoy, (Captain)!

Chicky with an empty belly... I'll stuff it full of yummy veggies...
While (Captain) mans the fryer, Lyria happily works on stuffing a chicken.
Ehehe... Sorry, (Captain). Cooking with you is so fun I started singing absentmindedly.
All that's left now is to put the chicken in the oven! How are your fries doing?
(Captain) lifts the basket out of the oil to see that the fries are a perfect golden brown. But the captain tries one just to make sure.
Hey, no fair! I want to help taste-test too! Here, pop one in my mouth, okay? Ahh...
I haven't washed my hands after touching the chicken, so I can't take one myself! Come on, stop teasing me!
Munch, munch... Hehe, they're delicious right out of the fryer. You're a frying genius!

(Captain). Won't you spend just this one day with me?
I've never had the chance to play in the snow with skydwellers before... I'd like to try it, if only just once.
And it's tradition to spend this day with those important to you, is it not? Therefore, I choose you,(Captain).
Hehe... After we've had our fill of fun, we can make an igloo together.
Inside we can keep warm, and let our worries and weariness melt away.

Tonight's a very special night... I don't mind celebrating with the rest of the crew...
But doesn't going to a quiet place for two sound so much more romantic?

The holiday's upon us, (Captain).
Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy this romantic night between the two of us?
My, my, what are you getting all flustered for? You're bound to me by fate after all...

There's nothing more romantic than snow on a winter's night.
Hehe. That isn't my magic, I promise... I've learned that sometimes truly magical things can't be forced.
On precious nights like these, how and who you spend it with is important.
Being able to spend time like this with a special someone such as yourself just makes it even more precious.
Now then, just how shall we spend it together... What are you in the mood for?

Even though we're having such a lovely party, would you like to sneak out with me?
Hehe. Just kidding.
If I'd asked you to spend this entire festive night with me, I bet you would have.
Let's stare at the night sky together just a little longer and then head back inside.
That sounds good enough to you?
For now, yes. But I'm sure we'll be able to share many more nights like this.
And that's not just a prediction—we'll definitely see them together.

I must say, I feel some affinity for our dear Santa Claus.
With his red hat and clothes, wouldn't you say we share the same image? Hehe.
Hey, (Captain). Indulge me for a moment. If I were Santa Claus, what kind of gift would you ask for?
You're quite the kind person, so I assume you would ask for something like happiness and peace across the skies.
However, just for tonight, I'd be delighted if you focused your attention on me and only me.
Just kidding. Were you surprised by such a selfish request? Hehe...

Hmm... Oh, (Captain). You came to eat cake too?
Okay, wait just a minute. I'm currently calculating the number of cuts required to give all members of the crew equal pieces.
I came pretty close just now, but I forgot to account for a 0.5 unit margin of error.
Hmm... First I'll have to recalculate some of the variables...

Hmmm...
Can I talk to you about something that I think about every year?
You know that a turkey lays an egg, right?
Well, how was the first turkey born to lay the first egg?
I guess the bigger question is... did the turkey come first or did the egg?

Let's see.. If the weight of the third tier on the right side's... Then the symmetry of the star on top would have to be...
Hrm...
Ah, (Captain). Isn't this such a beautiful night?
I was measuring decorations for the holiday tree.
In order to make the tree as fancy as possible while keeping it balanced, we'd have to...
But wait, I really want to use a big, flashy star on top too...
Mm...

Deliver a mountain of them at our feet! Heeheehee.

Happy holidays to you, skyfarer.
I've never attended a winter party such as yours before.
This feeling of familial togetherness in the presence of a hearty meal is like a blessing!
During my time at the castle, every matter was a stiff and formal affair. I much prefer this style of gathering!
Justice and I are excited to join in the merry festivities!

Season's greetings, (Captain)!
Let's celebrate by getting stuffed on roast chicken and pie! Yum!

Hey, (Captain)! Shhh!
Take a look at this spread!
All the crew members with culinary skills came out to shine for tonight's dinner!
How can you not pig out when it's right in front of you? All this tension is bad for the body.
The only cure is to snatch a few secret bites, but they've put up a strong defense...
All right, that's it. You and I are going in. Time to form a strategy!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
I was about to head into the woods to do some chopping.
No, not for firewood. I'm getting us a tree for the big day.
Hm, but now that I think about it, I probably can't carry it alone.
I guess I didn't think it all the way through...
I was so focused on getting a huge tree so I could see the smiles of all the kids in the crew that I—
Oh, you'll help me lug it back? Thanks, (Captain)! You're a lifesaver!
What, are you accusing me of wanting to rope you in from the beginning?
No way. I totally didn't plot anything... Hahaha...

Oh, (Captain). Happy holidays!
Thanks for helping me carry the tree again this year!
We bagged ourselves an even bigger one than before! The kids will love this.
Huh? How are we going to decorate this?
Ahaha! It's obvious. We're going to climb the tree! We'll make it so it doesn't wobble. No worries.
I'm good at climbing. You just watch. I'll be at the top in a flash!
I have an idea. Let's see which one of us can get to the top first, okay? We'll decorate after that!

???: ...
(Captain) suddenly shoots up in bed, sensing someone else in the room.
Mairah: Whoa! Sorry for waking you.
Ahaha... This Santa thing isn't as easy as it looks.
Yeah, I just thought I'd go around leaving presents by all the kids' beds. Here, (Captain)! This one's for you!
It's a tool for weapon maintenance. I picked out one that was easy to use!
The other kids' gifts are all in this bag—things like plushies and other toys.
I can't wait for morning to come. I just know they'll all be delighted.
Oh, you'd like to try your hand at being Santa too,(Captain)? Sure, let's do it together!

Why, hello there, Captain. Planning on having a celebratory feast this evening?
If you need help with anything... I don't suppose I could lend a hand?
I hear you need help with the tree. And with decorating the ship in festive, glittering colors.
One of my eruptions should make the Grandcypher plenty glittering, I figure.
Fweh heh heh... That was a joke. Hoowee... Maybe I overdid it?

Fwah-hah-hah! Happy holidays!
Oh, (Captain). What's that worried look on your face about?
Come on, pipe up now! Let's hear it.
Wh-what! The chicken hasn't been put in the oven yet!
This is most grave! Hurry! We must hurry and prepare the chicken!
On your mark, get ready, get set...
Gooooo!
There! Now it's well-roasted!

Happy holidays. Are you as ready as can be, Captain?
Mmph, Captain... This cake is a bit plain, don't you think?
We're celebrating the holidays, so this needs to be a bit flashier! More explosive!
We could use my supernal...
Hm? Everyone is going to decorate it later, so there's no need for that, you say?
Then we'll need some supernal fireworks in order to really make the decorations sparkle...
Huh? No big explosions?
O-of course I'll keep it tame. I know, I know. Fweh heh heh...

Happy holidays! Santa must be nuts to be delivering all those presents for free! He could make a fortune!
But maybe he's just a good person. A bit like you!

Hey, (Captain), did you see? There's gonna be a real feast tonight!
The best cooks in the crew are trying to outdo each other, I heard.
The table's overflowing already. I wonder if we can finish it all... Then again, there are plenty of crew members, so maybe we can?
Hm? I seem excited? I guess so... Maybe.
To gather with friends and have a great meal without worry...
It may seem everyday to you, but for me it's a special occasion! Ha-ha!

Ah, (Captain)! Happy holidays...
Ahhh... It's nothing really. I'm just a little worn out from all the hustle and bustle.
I sent a greeting card to Altos and that old codger. Syr said that I should.
Hm... I wonder if the card was good enough... Feels like it needed something more...
I probably should've talked to you before I sent it out actually. Next time though you'll lend me an ear, won't you?

So I just put it through here and...
Ah, (Captain), how are holiday preparations coming along?
Me? I'm making decorations for the tree.
This himmeli here is furnished from straw and string. I'll admit it looks kind of plain though.
The old man made himmeli every year to pray for a bountiful harvest.
But in my case...
Ah!
Treasure, treasure galore—by my bedside!
Ahaha! I wish!

Huh? (Captain)? You're awake too?
Me? Ehehe, just taking a little walk before bed!
Tonight's party was so much fun. I'm trying to keep it all fresh in my head.
How about you? You're using this time to hand out presents to the little kiddies in the crew?
That's great! Ahaha, I'm sure everyone'll be so happy! I can already picture Syr making a big deal out of it when he wakes up!
Oopsie, I should keep it down. Wouldn't want them waking up before they even get the presents.
Oh, of course! The identity of this year's Santa will be our secret to keep.

Well, it's the merriest day of the year. I guess that explains why the kids are so excited.
But something weird happened. People are supposed to find presents next to their pillows when they wake up today, right?
I didn't find anything next to mine... Do you think it's because I'm a primal beast?
Hey, what's so funny?
It's not like I even wanted anything! I just heard about the custom and thought it was odd not to find anything!

(Captain), have you told Santa Claus what you want for the holidays yet?
I mean, 'cause you and Lyria are still kids in a way. And Santa gives present to all the little kiddies.
Hey, quit teasing me! I know I'm no kid anymore and won't be getting any presents!
Grr, don't you laugh at me, (Captain)!
Keep it up, and you'll be on Santa's naughty list!
So stop chuckling already!

That Santa Claus guy... He gives presents to good kids, right?
I-I'm not asking for myself! I'm asking for Medusiana!
If it's only good kids that get something, then Medusiana deserves the best for always helping me out so much.
Besides, I'm not a kid, so why would I be asking for a present!
N-not that I'd mind getting one at the same time as Medusiana...
Anyway, I'm just thinking out loud! I'm not asking for anything, got it?

Happy holidays!
It's really cold today... You look cold too. Which means there's only one thing to do.
I'll wrap you up in my hair! Well? Feeling warmer?
Gasp! The color's draining from your face!
I just wanted to warm you up, but I went too far. Hold on. I'm loosening my grip!
I'm... sorry.

Say, (Captain). What comes to your mind when you think of the holidays?
For me... all it reminds me of is the pain of watching the corn fields wither away.
Where I'm from, it's warm enough for the corn to grow all year round.
Just the thought that there's a time when it'd be too cold for corn to live... Brrr...
That fateful night... That's when I first experienced that kind of horror.
It was so cold that night... So cold...

Happy holidays.
Isn't it around bedtime for good little girls and boys, (Captain)?
Soon Santa will be placing presents right by their pillows.
You should get to bed too if you don't want to miss out.
Feeling cold? Okay, I'll slip under the covers with you.
I'll wrap your body in my hair and spin you around to generate warmth.
I used to do that for my little brothers back home. Haha, good times...

Huh?
You're not feeling all that warm even after I've wrapped you in my hair?
Hm... I guess my locks aren't exactly the most efficient in retaining heat.
There must be something else I can do to keep you warm...
Ah...
Haha, is this any better?
When my kid brothers were still young, I would have a brother on each side as I held their hands for the long walks we took.
Ah, this brings back memories. Do you mind if we take a walk like this?

Happy holidays!
Let's go eat some candy canes! Yum... Look, Sachy's hungry too!

Melleau: La la... La la...
Wow... The city is glowing with sparkly lights. Do you like it, Sachy?
Sachy: ...
Melleau: Hm? You look like you're enjoying it too. Heheh... You're having fun hanging out with me?
I see. I see now... And I'm having fun too. And so is Sachy. That makes for a happy holiday!

I smell cake... Ah, hello there, (Captain)...
I was lazing about in my room when I got a sweet whiff of some cake...
So Sachy and I were just about to hurry and get ourselves a bite...
And that's when you showed up!
Now then, why don't you come along with Sachy and me to have a slice or two?
Huh? You will? I knew we were best buddies!
Well then, I think I'll take my sweet time to satisfy my sweet tooth with a sweet treat... Let's eat!

Happy holidude!
Hey there! I came to invite you to the party!
There's going to be a ton of food, lots of cake—it'll be amazing.
What do you recommend? I want to eat what you like, (Captain).
I think it's gonna be one of my favorites too.
I mean, you and me are buds, right?

Happy holidays, (Captain). I'm helping out with the party today.
The folks in the kitchen asked me to serve the food. It's all fresh off the stove.
I'm always kinda just lazing around, you know. I figured the least I could do was help out during the holidays.
Think of me and Sachy as culinary Santas for the day.
Of course, we have a present for you too. One pipin' hot rotisserie chicken coming right up!
Kay, I'm gonna go pass out the rest. But once I'm done, I'll bring up three servings of cake, so wait for me to come back, all right?

I haven't had a chance to celebrate the holidays these past few years. The PSC's always been right around the corner.
And I'm usually spending all my time in the pit stall tuning my machine. Good luck doing anything festive in there.
It's really bustling here though. I'm worried about losing focus, but you have to relax from time to time.

All right, just tighten this bolt here... that should do it.
Oh! What's up, (Captain)? Sorry, I was just performing some maintenance on the Blue Orbit.
Ah, today's the holiday, huh? Totally slipped my mind.
Okay, then! Should we head out?
It'll be nice to take a break outside tonight, especially with you, (Captain).

Ah, there you are, (Captain)!
I was looking all over for you. Any chance you're free right now? We should head out!
Hm, a speedship? Nah, that'd be overkill. I'm talking about a good ol' walk.
C'mon, it's fun to just hang out around town once in a while.
I mean, today is the holy eve after all...

Happy holidays! Huh? You want a present? How about... me?
Just kidding! That might have been a little too... stimulating for a little darling like yourself, I suppose.

Oh, hello, (Captain)! Over here, now. Why? To hang out, obviously.
Where are we going? To buy some new clothes, duh.
Shush, dear. Just follow me.
Hee hee... Behave yourself, and I might just give you a present even better than the one Santa Claus has in store...

Hm? You're still awake?
Sigh... I wanted to leave my present for you on your pillow and surprise you.
Hehe... You know... That I know, right?
You were pretending to sleep, weren't you?
Haha. Did you think I wouldn't notice? Why are you getting so tense? You're just so adorable!
What did... you think I would do to you on this holiest night... in your room?
Hehe... Don't try to hide it. I saw your eyes open when I headed for the door.

Season's greetings, (Captain)!
Hey, listen to this, would you? I got so many invitations tonight from all kinds of guys...
Hehe... Oh, what's a girl to do? Maybe I'll have them all come over at the same time.
Bahaha! Look at your face. Oh, you're just adorable!
Well, this makes things easy... How's this? I'll just spend the night in your room instead.
Surely you'll be able to keep me entertained all night long... Right?

Ha... Ha... Happy holidays!
But, I've got to say... I'm just a tad tired of partying with everyone.
Hey, what do you say we go somewhere? Just the two of us?
Oh, I'd love to—long as you're on board.
Well, aren't you enthusiastic? Then why waste time? Let's pack and get outta here.
Hehe... Hey, let's keep this trip our dirty little secret.

It's been a while since I've gone out celebrating for the holidays.
I'm usually working around this time of year. Plenty of money to be made!
Oh, I almost forgot! I have this for you. It's nothing really. Just a little something.

The city sure is lively. Everyone looks so happy out there.
I look happy too? You might be right.
Huh? Is that really so surprising? I've had a few happy moments as of late, you know.
Spending so much time on the ship is probably responsible. Nothing wrong with that.

There you are. Right on time.
I know. You're here to invite me to the holiday party, aren't you?
Thinking about it, this is the third time I've spent the holidays with you, isn't it?
All right. I'll go to the party with you. I kind of like spending this time of the year with you.
What? Don't get used to it, I'm not always in this mood.

(Captain), the holiday party is about to begin.
Is it strange for me to be the one telling you? I'm sure you were planning to invite me anyway.
I wasn't looking forward to it, particularly. Predicting what your client will want is part of a hired hand's bag of tricks.
This year's cake? I'm not especially looking forward to that either. I simply need to understand the power of the people I'm dealing with.
Why are you smiling? We need to get to the party right away.

You're late, (Captain). Everyone's been waiting for you.
Well, you look awfully surprised. Is it such a shocker that I got here before you?
Oh, it's just a coincidence that someone in the crew got to me and had me join the party before you had a chance to speak to me.
Though I'll admit I'm a bit startled to be invited by someone other than you.
I suppose I should just be glad I get to see that reaction on your face.
But enough talk—let's get inside already.
The party's not gonna get started without a toast from you, (Captain).

Happy holidays.
Gimme something.

Happy day.
I want stump cake.
Give it to me.
Tootle-too!

Not sleeping tonight. I'll see if you're real, Santa.
Then I'll hunt you down.

Happy holidays.
Now get over here and sit.
There's a trap in the street. Tonight we hunt Santa together.

Season's greets. Where were you hiding? I looked everywhere for you.
This is our scheduled time to go Santa-hunting every year.
I'll give you some of the credit too this time.

Mimlemel: Hm? What's this? Something happen during my nap?
Pun-Kin: Wow, wow, wowie, wow! Look at the snowy-white snow covering the ground! Isn't it beautiful, Princess?
About time we got back though... Uh-oh, the wheel tracks are all covered up by the snow now... Which way do we go again?

Pun-Kin: Princess! That mysterious old man they call Santa is in town!
I wonder where he is? I've looked all over, but I can't find him anywhere!
Mimlemel: Nnh? What are you doing outside? And I was having such a good nap after my snack too.

Mimlemel: There's leftover food. Let's take it back to my room.
Pun-Kin: Aww, Princess! Don't you know I might just gobble up whatever yummy food you chuck into my mouth?
Mm, that smells so good... I bet she won't notice if it's just a bit of chicken leg... Chomp...

Mimlemel: Winter feast? Don't want it. Appetite's gone. Unless there's Mont Blanc...
Stumpeye: You poor thing. One Mont Blanc coming right up! These wheels spin quadruple time!

Mimlemel: Blah... No motivation to do anything...
If I don't get to see Santa, I'll wither and die...
Stumpeye: Hang in there, Mim! One Santa comin' up! I'll track him down for ya!
(Captain)! Where do I find this Santa chap? I need to know how to nab 'im!

Mimlemel: Where's Santa...
Stumpeye: What bollocks... How is it we've been lookin' fer a year now, and there's still no word of the fella...
C'mon, Captain! You've gotta help us out!
I wanna present Mim wit' Santa in the flesh!

Very good. None of the crew members are doing anything particularly irresponsible.
Hmm? Oh, it's you, (Captain). I was just going around making sure the crew is staying in line.
Enemies could attack us at any time. We have to be ready and at our best, even during times of celebration.
I suppose I think that way because it's my job to support you. People like me never have a day off.
I sure hope you'll come running if something happens, but until that time comes, relax and have a good holiday season.

Mona and Mena... This is what you had in mind the whole time, isn't it? How am I supposed to let anyone see me like—
...!
(Captain)?
Th-this isn't what it looks like! My sisters made me wear this!
I didn't hear that this outfit would be quite so... festive, so I...
W-well, but anyway, (Captain)!
Please take this if you would. It's a holiday present from me.
All right. Now that you've got it, well, I suddenly remembered an urgent errand.
I'm not running off because I want to change into another outfit as soon as I can, or because this one's embarrassing. Definitely not!
(Captain), see you in a bit! H-happy holidays!

Phew... We should have everything we need after that last little supply run.
I'm sorry, (Captain). You were having so much fun at the holiday party when I made you tag along with me.
Y-you're wondering why I'm not wearing a dress like last year?
My face is going to turn as red as a beet if I start thinking about that again...
You might not know, but since I only wore that dress once, Mona and Mena gave me a new one...
N-no! I returned it right away of course! Experiencing that once was more than enough!
The most important part of the holiday is that you spend it with friends and family. What you wear doesn't really matter.
As long as the people you really care for are there by your side, you don't need to dress flashy or—
W-what am I even saying now!
It seems like the holiday spirit has gotten the better of me. Just disregard that silly little comment of mine.
All right, let's head back to the ship. The whole crew's waiting for you, (Captain).

This is the cake I've been hearing about! It's so pretty!
But when it comes to sweets, looks aren't everything. I won't be fooled by its appearance!
Let's eat!
Gozaru! This is just as delicious as anmitsu! Other countries are great at desserts!

Thanks a bunch for inviting me to the seasonal party!
I was just thinking that it'd be nice to study how best to act during such an event!
It'll expand my horizons and deepen my knowledge of foreign cultures.
By the way will that exotic sweet everyone knows as cake be available?
Oh, I definitely don't have any ulterior motives...
Ahaha... Okay, I'll confess.
Truth is, I just want cake!

It's freezing tonight. And there are so many clouds...
Oh! Look, look! It's snowing!
Amazing... I'd always heard about snowy evenings—how breathtaking they are, but...
This really is something special, isn't it?
Um, by the way, shouldn't we get going? To the party, I mean. I'm looking forward to the cake.
Ahaha... You're right. I really do care more about cake than snow!

This holiday night is one full of memories.
It reminds me of a beloved child I once nurtured...
On this day only, that child could finally be happy, as if the pain and suffering had never existed.
As if they had never contracted that loathsome disease. Those joyful memories will always stay me.
So many memories come flooding back tonight. Hehe, what a wonderful time of the year.

The holy night... It really has meaning for me.
I've told you once of a beloved child, do you remember?
Only on this night, which overflows with spiritual energy, was the child's curse lifted. This was the only night when acting like every other child was allowed.
My heart aches every time I recall...
The memories we made will last me a lifetime...
Hehehe... Oh what a life I have lived...

The holy night is one of many wonders...
To the untrained eye, it appears to be nothing more than a normal day's end. But there is so much power...
I used to wish this power would last all year long.
Hehe... To save my beloved child I was so willing to hope for miracles.
But to do what must be done, I must rely only on my own strength.
I hope one day this night, will be one just like any other for my beloved and I...
I hope one day this silly idea will come to fruition.

Ah, I've found you, (Captain).
Please, kindly accept this medicine. I've been passing it out to all of the members of the crew.
No, it's not a strange medicine. It will help ease your digestive system, given the heaviness of tonight's banquet.
Take it before to prevent bloating; take it after to ease indigestion. It's the perfect remedy for anything that ails your stomach.
Now, I'll be taking this medicine to Zehek as well.
I believe he's fast asleep in his room. He went straight to bed without eating. One wonders if he isn't depressed.
In the event he's lost his appetite, this medicine should allow him to enjoy a slice of cake at least.
Would you grab a few dishes and follow me?
I want him to experience the warmth of the seasons, if only for a little while.

Happy holidays!
Tomorrow's the big night, so you had better rest up.

Sigh, what did I get myself into...
Hm? Oh, it's you. My crew has made a rather... unusual bet.
They're wagering whether or not Santa will come to visit me tonight.
Good grief... How old do they think I am, anyway?

Munch, munch...
Hngh! Gulp.
Oh my, who do we have here? I wasn't expecting to run into you.
What business do you have in the kitchen? I'm just making sure none of my comrades are breaking any rules on this holiday...
...
No, I should come clean with you. I don't want to tell you a bad lie.
To have my snack-raiding be exposed by you would be...
You won't say anything about this, right? It'll be our little secret. Hehe.
Well, then! It's time for me to make my patrols like I said I was.
What about you? I think the town's too lively tonight for someone to walk it alone.

Holiday pudding?
Or a buche de fete?
Well, I suppose the holidays aren't really the time to be worrying about overeating.
Excuse me, shopkeeper? I'll have one of each.
Oh. Hello, (Captain). Fancy running into you at this patisserie.
I was just selecting a gift for the rest of the crew on the Grandcypher.
I've already finished with my patrol. And it's the holidays, after all.
Hehehe. Let's celebrate with a fancy meal and some delicious sweets!

You're looking for cake shop recommendations?
Well, you're certainly asking the right person. Even so, the answer isn't as clear-cut as you might think.
There are a plethora of cake varieties, each with their own individuality.
I could take you to the shop that whips up an out-of-this-world cream that everyone agrees is delicious...
Or there's another shop that specializes in fruit-based cakes...
Ergh, but how can you say no to a good tart, or a brownie, or a cheesecake? Hmm...
Okay! It's time to take action instead of wallowing in indecision. Are you free right now?
I suggest we visit every shop on my recommendation list and sample their offerings.

Morphe and Phoebe (Event)

Phoebe: Santa Claus is a lie! He doesn't give presents to all the children of the world.
Morphe: Really? Aw, and I was looking forward to it!
Phoebe: Well... I've never gotten any presents before.
Morphe: Huh? But you've never looked like a kid before now! Santa Claus only gives presents to children! When you're in primal beast form you look like an adult! That's why Santa skipped you!
Phoebe: Gasp!

Phoebe: (Captain), open up wide.
Yup, these are from the other crew members. They say you eat cookies in the shape of humans for the holy night and the new year.
Morphe: They say the cookie collects all the evil energy.
Phoebe: But why would anyone eat something that's absorbed evil energy? The cookie must feel so abused...
Morphe: Hmm... If I were a cookie, I guess I'd be happy if someone just loved eating me, right?
Phoebe: Hehe... I hope the cookie is happy. What if it's not? What do you think, (Captain)?
Morphe: Ugh! Sis! Why you gotta go and say that before the captain is even done eating?
Phoebe: Hehe... If the cookie comes for you in your dreams... then I'll protect you.

Phoebe: (Captain), (Captain)... Why don't we go to bed soon?
Morphe: Santa Claus is supposed to come visit while we're asleep!
Winter comes at different times for each island, but still... Touring through an entire island in a single night can't be easy.
Phoebe: Which means us hitting the hay early makes it that much easier for Santa.
Morphe: I got fluffy bed blankets and pillows ready to help us fall fast asleep!
Phoebe: So let's go to bed, (Captain).
I'll read you a storybook and sing you a lullaby or two to help you enter a deep sleep.
...
Or would you rather we share my bed? I think it'd be a lot more comfortable that way...
Morphe: Isn't your bed a bit small for two? I'm not sure how that'd be comfy...
Phoebe: ...
Morphe: Yeowch! What's the big idea, Sis? Can you stop with the pinching already?

Phoebe: How would you like a cookie? It's sweet with just a little bit of a zing to it. One bite will chase evil spirits and bad luck away!
Morphe: This year, we helped Ladiva make her special "out with the old" cookies!
After they cooled, we piped on faces and clothes with royal icing!
Phoebe: Please try one, (Captain). Which would you like? I recommend this one with the big smile.
Morphe: Hehe. You should chomp into it with gusto to help blow those evil spirits away!
Phoebe: Hee hee.
Eat me, (Captain)! I'm so yummy! Quick, take a bite!
Morphe: Phoebe... I don't think anyone would want to eat a cookie that could talk...
Phoebe: Wait, what? Oh no...

Neamhan: Perhaps our former charge prayed for his family as well.
It's a pure shame we shall never know if his prayers were answered.
Macha: Oh, forgive us. We must seem like we're one drop away from a drizzle.
Badb: (Captain), who do you cherish?
Neamhan: Whoever it is, I bet when you realized you wanted to protect them, your strength and kindness grew tenfold.

Even in my hometown of Irestill, this time of year is known to be special.
So when I spend time with friends like this, it reminds me of the old days.
You know, Seruel always used to look forward to Heles's cake and my tea.

(Captain)? What's the matter? You should be spending this special time with someone close to you. Are you not going to be with Lyria and the others?
...!
You've come to be with me? You humble me on this day.
Back on Alster Island, it was common to pray for good fortune on this night.
But I will spend this night with you. No, it would be my pleasure to spend it with you.
Nothing makes me happier than hearing that you count me as someone close to you, (Captain).

I considered offering my assistance for tonight's supper, but I fear I may just be a hindrance.
Memories of my childhood at Emmain Macha came to mind—one winter night in particular.
I roamed the halls together with Heles and Seruel, eager to help prepare supper or decorate the castle halls.
Ultimately, we ended up knocking over a pot of boiling water, and my mother scolded the three of us.
I remember trembling in utter terror at my mother at the time, but looking back now I feel nothing but warm nostalgia—life is strange like that, isn't it?

Speaking of the holy night, as a child I would always leave candy by my pillow for Santa Claus.
In Alster Island, we use wheat and honey to bake a special treat for that very purpose.
If I remember right, it was the first thing that Heles ever baked. Ah, the memories.
I do not recall how many years ago it was, but there came a time when Heles decided to make some on her own. Even her mother was shooed out of the kitchen.
I fulfilled my duty as a food taster, praising her for the confection's wonderful taste. But doing so only brought me blame.
She wondered why I did not point out her accidental use of salt in lieu of sprinkles.
From all the perspiration that a knight undergoes during training, it is only natural to find salt savory.
That is why I enjoyed her confection so.
Hm?
You believe that my inimitable taste buds are the problem, not the perspiration?
(Captain), your words confound me...

Season's greetings, (Captain). Would you like some baked goods for a snack?
My mother sent them from back home. These are the treats I mentioned last year—the ones we'd present to Santa Claus each year.
It was common to enjoy the leftovers with tea on the day following the holy night. Ah, the memories.
As plain as they may be, it would bring me immense joy to see you relishing their taste, (Captain).
Hm? It appears my mother left a message on this wrapper...
"Please understand that Naoise was born with his inimitable taste buds."
"However, both Seruel and Heles have given the treats their highest rating from a young age, so you may safely rejoice in their taste."
...? Mother? What do you mean?

Even in my hometown of Irestill, this time of year is known to be special.
So when I spend time with friends like this, it reminds me of the old days.
You know, Seruel always used to look forward to Heles's cake and my tea.

(Captain)? What's the matter? You should be spending this special time with someone close to you. Are you not going to be with Lyria and the others?
...! You've come to be with me? You humble me on this day.

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
It's freezing today. Maybe we should huddle up together for warmth?
Hee hee... Come on, I don't bite! Hee hee...

Happy Holidays!
(Captain)! (Captain)! It's the most magical time of the year!
We just sat in front of the fireplace last year, so...
Wanna go into town as a change of pace? Hee, here! Take my hand!
Hehe, we're gonna have so much fun today, (Captain)!

You know, there was a time when I went away to train all alone on a remote snowy mountain.
Back then snow was nothing to me, but something that was cold and white.
But not anymore. Now I think it looks absolutely beautiful. Makes my heart flutter when I see those little flakes falling.
I bet it's because I'm not all by my lonesome self anymore. Because I'm with a special someone.
Psst, (Captain). Mind if we... cuddle a little?
Hehe. Let's just stay like this for a while.

Happy holidays, (Captain)! What a beautiful night this is.
Teehee, this is the fourth time I've been able to spend this special day with you. It makes me so happy...
What sort of present do you want? I'm ready to give you anything...
Hm? You just want me by your side?
Ehehe... It's the same with me. Just having ou nearby fills me with endless satisfaction.
I guess we make the perfect holiday gifts for each other. Ehehe.

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
It makes me so happy to wish you season's greetings like this every year.
Just seeing your face warms my heart right up.
The cold doesn't stand a... Ah... Achoo!
Oh my! I'm sorry, (Captain)! Don't worry, I'm fine...
Oh... Your hands are so warm...
Ehehe... Now you're warming me up, inside and out.
I'm somehow even happier than I was before. Can we stay like this a little while longer?

Merry Christmas!
I'm gonna be Santa this year!
Although I've never dressed as Santa before... Or ridden in a sleigh.
So this is like my first day at work! Heehee, what do you want as a present, (Captain)?
Ah, but you'll have to pay for your present! Heeheehee!
Ah, that's enough jokin' around! Let's have fun today and stay warm!

Hmm? What's the matter, (Captain)? You look cooold.
When I get cold I use these: the long, long silks on my axe!
You can use them for so many things. Love 'em so much!
Let's just wrap it around you like this... Aaand... Voila! Perfect scarf!
Oops... Looks like I wrapped us up together. Hehe. Now it's a double scarf.
But isn't this super warm? Hehe.

Believe it or not... Santa saved the lives of me and my sisters.
There was a time when we were poor, so poor we were struggling just to get by.
That's when this Santa Claus guy threw some gold coins into our windows.
And they just happened to land in our stockings. I couldn't believe it. Holiday presents for us.
Huh? You say I'm telling a story?
Well, you've really grown—you figured it out so quick.
But even if our story is fake, who knows—maybe Saint Claus's real.
So we're heading to the town to solve the mystery once and for all...
All right! Just one more push and we'll be in town, (Captain)! Hehe!

Happy Holly Daze!
You see what I did there? That's right—it's a daze where you dream about holly and feel happy! That's what this day is all about!
But why? And just what kinda daze is that? And why is it just holly?
So to find out the truth behind this holly daze, I ventured out to a cake shop that was decked with boughs of holly.
I got you a mont blanc from there! See, here's the logo of the store—it's a picture of holly.
Huh? Just get to the point, you say? I totally get what you mean! That's why you should tell me, (Captain).
Heehee. Anyway, let's just toss that aside and save that for later.
This mont blanc cake is looking pretty good! Nom nom... Mmm, delicious! Here, open wide!
How is it? You like it? All right! Then once you're done eating, let's solve this holly daze mystery together!

Happy holidays to ya!
What's that? Hand over the present, you say? You've got a lot of nerve there!
But I'll tell ya... I've just about lost my cheer for the season.
I wonder how long it's been... You know, since I became the one givin' gifts instead of gettin' 'em.
Ha-ha-ha! I better stop. Got me thinkin' about my darlin' husband.
But I deserve a gift every now and then, don't you think? So, (Captain), how about my present?

Hey, did you hear?
The gift exchange's been canceled this year.
Why are you so surprised? A memo went around the airship and everything!
Yae's been a good girl this year too... It's a real shame.
I even got you somethin' nice this year, (Captain).
A real shame indeed... But my hands are tied!

(Captain)! Happy holidays to ya!
I heard what ya did! You went and got my little girl a present, didn't ya?
Thanks a bunch, hon!
I think I might've misjudged you. You're a lot nicer than I thought!
Hm... Or maybe I'm lookin' at this the wrong way. Are you goin' after my Yae?
Ha-ha-ha! I'm just foolin'! Why are you makin' that face at me?
Ha-ha-ha! You're hilarious! Pickin' on you is worth the trouble!

It's already that long-awaited time of the year again, huh, (Captain)?
I mean, I wasn't waitin' for it though.
Seriously though, it must be nice not having a care in the world...
Meanwhile, I haven't even decided on a present for my little Yae yet!
Not to mention I still haven't gotten you your present either!
But I really was plannin' on having something for ya today, really!
Wait, ya really believe me, don't you?
Haha, thank you kindly, (Captain)!

Happy holidays!
I just crashed into an old man. He was pretty well-built for his age! Hahaha!

Hah hah hah! That was so much fun I almost forgot how cold it is!
Hm? Is it my turn to fire up the crew?
All right, I've got something just perfect for the occasion!
Don't take your eyes off me for a second, everyone! Hah hah hah!

(Captain), won't you join me for tonight's festivities?
Hah hah hah! Now that you mention it, we should probably discuss how we'll spend the time there.
I was thinking you and I could try performing the tribal folk song and dance of my people together.
And you know, two is always better than one, three is always better than two, and so on—Actually, scratch that... We'll need over a hundred people.
Hah hah hah! Worry not, my friend! We have more than half a day left to practice!
And practice we shall! I look forward to seeing the looks of astonishment on their faces tonight!
Next, to invite the ladies of the crew! Any dance worth its salt needs a few lovely maidens!

A wizened man clad in robes of red who brings presents in the night...
Is he not afraid to be flying at such heights all night?
Hmm... I do wonder.
Aha!
If I can get ahold of him, perhaps I can ask him the secret of overcoming the fear of heights!
Hahaha! With this I might finally overcome my fears!
There's no time to waste!
Will you help me find him, (Captain)?

Ah, (Captain). What a chilly night we're having.
I was thinking of my fellow brethren back home.
I hope they remain warm and in good health in my absence.
Haha, you think I worry too much? Perhaps so, but that is simply my nature.
Since I cannot be by their side right now, I figure the least I can do is pray for their well-being.
If it's not too much to ask, (Captain), would you mind praying with me? It'd be that much more effective with the two of us.

Happy holidays! I've been laying the groundwork for tonight for ages!
Groundwork for what? Why, the decorations, of course! When the crew sees the mechanical wonders I've put up to celebrate, it's gonna blow their minds!
Let's celebrate like we mean it, (Captain)!

It's that time of the year again...
What am I so excited about? The decorations of course!
The number of crew members has increased and... we've got so many more young crew members, right?
I got appraisals from everyone who heard about what we did last year, so this year I'm going all out with the decorations!
Will you help me, (Captain)? Haha, thank you! All right, let's get a move on it!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Heh heh. Actually, we're all done with the decorations.
What are we doing this year?
Isn't it obvious? We're going to give out presents!
Your crew has a lot of younger ones, so we made little robot toys for each and every one of them!
I'm sure they'll love it!
C'mon, (Captain). Let's give 'em out together!

Happy holidays, (Captain)!
Haha. I bet I look like a mess. I was just repainting Gigantes.
It's because I was thinking about Santa. He's got that red coat and that white beard.
By adding some white to Gigantes, I thought I could give it a seasonal flair. Maybe call it the Santa Bot.
Its power is just what you'd expect—carrying loads and loads of presents like it's nothin'.
And its control system would continuously evolve, learning to give the perfect present to each and every kid based on age!
Haha. Pretty good idea, right? The bots I make aren't just for battle!

I decided to devote myself to you...
Because you love and accept me for who I am... Because you're so dear to me...

(Captain), happy holidays!
Hm? You too, (Captain)?
Yeah, here I am.
Tonight's party is gonna be a blast. I hear the tables are gonna be packed with food.
Mm, my mouth is watering just thinking about—
No, wait! Never mind I ever said that!
And no, I do not eat ten times that of other people—only five!

(Captain), happy holidays!
Do you think I look weird? I don't have a stain or something on me, right?
Really? Good...
I was just helping out carry the tree in.
I pulled it from the forest, put it on my back, and took it all the way to the boat.
I chose the best tree I could find. I hope you're looking forward to decorating it, (Captain).
Since I'm clean, let's start now!

You can tell it's the holiday season. The town is overflowing with happy melodies.
But there's an unsettling discord hanging in the air as well. I have to put a stop to it.

The holiday melodies flowing through town are so fascinatingly complex...
The sound of people reveling and others griping fills the air... But the end result is far from cacophonous.
What do I think of this season? I dislike noisy places——banquets and the like——so I was never much a fan.
But to spend my time within the noise quietly by your side? That... I like.

La la la...
Hehe... This is fun.
All I can hear is the falling of the snow and the melody in your heart.
Just for now, it all belongs to me. Hehe...

It's cold...
The snow's beautiful, but the cold numbs my hands.
(Captain)... Can you hold my hand?
...
Teehee. You're so warm.

... Hey, (Captain).
On the holy night, the town is so full of warmth, and you can hear beautiful melodies playing everywhere.
There are all kinds of melodies playing on the streets... All I heard were awful sounds before, so I was surprised...
Hehe. It's thanks to you, (Captain). When I'm with you, the same melody flows through me too.
Hey, can you spend a little more time with me today, (Captain)?
Once we get back to the ship, you'll be busy looking after everyone...
So... I want to keep your melody all to myself for a little while longer.

Happy holidays to you, (Captain).
Tonight Santa Claus appears before all the good children bearing gifts.
Have you been good this year as well, (Captain)?
Hehe. Well, you're a little too old to be bound by those rules anymore.
I do have a present for you though. It's not from Santa, but I hope it'll do.

So (Captain), do you know how Santa delivers all those presents?
According to one local legend, he travels the sky on a sleigh pulled by reindeer.
In any case he manages to do it all in just one night. As a primal beast that builds ships, I have to admit I'm intrigued.
Just once I'd like to see Santa riding around on his sleigh...
Hehe. What a strange thing to talk about. Let's just set that aside and enjoy the night before us.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Preparations for this year's celebrations have taken quite some time. Looks like we'll just be able to make it though.
What's taking so long? Well, the sleigh of course.
It was constructed for a dignified shipwright of a primal beast.
I don't know if it'll be able to go around the world in a single night, but it's definitely speedy.
I'll see if Rackam's up to play Santa Claus, but...
Well, it'd be great if you could lend a hand too, (Captain).

Ah, (Captain), what a perfect timing.
As a matter of fact, I was just looking for you. I have a bit of a request to make.
Do I remember the sleigh I made last year.
This year I've modified it to release snow from the bottom.
Snow reduces friction when travelling across the ground anyway.
We can make it snow as we advance through the sky.
I'd like to use the sled to deliver presents to the children of the order.
Would you mind lending me a hand, (Captain)?

Happy holidays!
What's that? You're worried about Santa Claus making it here through all this snow?
Ah! No problem! Our town gets tons of snow, but he always makes it there just fine.

Santa Claus must be havin' it rough in this cold, yeah?
I heard he comes on a sleigh, and that's more than a mite chillier than an airship, I reckon.
It'd sure be nice if he could stop and have some warm milk and cookies with us...
But he's so busy, there's no way he'll have time, yeah?

Good golly! I've never seen a cake this big! I guess that's what you get from the big city.
You didn't buy it, but you made it yourself? Well, hot dog! I can't believe my eyes or my ears!
Thanks for the slice, (Captain)! Yum... Hm?
This cake is so good I wanna go swimmin' in a pool of the batter! Even the apple on top had me droolin' for more!
Ooh wee, I'm in heaven!

Dad fetch my buttons, if it ain't (Captain)! A happy holiday to ya!
I tell ya, today's a real special day. This big 'ol city's quiet as a mouse for once... It feels real blessed or somethin'.
Huh? You're wondering what I was doin' up this way all by my lonesome?
All ya'll in the crew're gonna have that big holiday hoe-down, but I just get so gosh-darn nervous...
I sure hate to ask you a favor, but... (Captain), would you mind stickin' by my side if I go?
No foolin'? Well shucks, (Captain), there ain't nothing gonna spook me when you're by my side!
A little bird told me there's gonna be some nice and tasty cake at that party.
Last year was such a hoot. I get ants in my pants just thinkin' 'bout this one!

Hiyo, (Captain). Snow's really comin' down this year.
I'm used to city livin' now, but seein' all this snow pilin' up reminds me of the mountains.
But it's nothin' like my hometown snow! That stuff'll bury you good.
When it comes to ease of livin', city dwellin' takes the cake.
Haha, listen to me talk like city folk! Well, I've been livin' this way for a while now, ya'know!
The country boy in me'll never change, but I can safely say I've done some growin' up, (Captain).

Happy holidays!
Hey, (Captain)... I was wondering...Do you have any plans for tonight?
Why? Well, I have two tickets for a holiday dinner and...
I was wondering if you'd like to come along... Um, you know, if you're free that is! Otherwise, I can just ask someone else!
You can come? G-great! I heard the food is going to be fantastic!
I'm going to go get ready! I'll see you on the deck later tonight, then!

Hmm? Ack, (Captain)!
Sorry... Unfortunately the food's not ready yet.
You smelled something good? Hehe. Well it's been in the oven for awhile.
Since I was little, I would help my mother make the holiday festival dinner. I was always in charge of the mashed potatoes.
Smash the potatoes, add a pinch of salt. That's all I had to do, but I would also try my best to taste it as I made it.
Sometimes I would fill up on just tasting the potatoes and make my parents wait to start dinner. I miss those days...
Since I've become an adult, I haven't been able to go home for the holidays very often.
But I've enjoyed spending the holidays with you, (Captain).
Today I'll make a festive feast as a way to thank you for all the little things you do for us every day. I hope you're looking forward to it!

Happy holidays!
Oh, you could hear my violin out in the corridor?
I was practicing. Everyone on the crew who plays an instrument decided we'd put on a holiday concert tonight.
A peaceful holiday is nice too, but nothing beats singing and dancing the night away with all your friends.
I want to make sure it's an evening everyone will enjoy.
You want to hear my performance?
Well of course you can!
I'll run through the first song on the program. Give me your honest feedback, all right? Don't hold back!

Happy holidays, (Captain).
You're wondering what my plans are for tonight? Well, I've actually got a concert planned...
And it's a concert just for you.
Hehe, did I have you going for a sec? You're going to be the only person in the audience, so it's a surprise solo performance just for you.
I have to show my appreciation for all you do for me after all.
So will you be free to attend tonight?

Tonight is the longest night of all. And to greet one another on this night, we are to say, "happy holidays." Correct?
Ah, no children of man lived on my island. It was a very small island.
I've come to learn much from traveling with you.
A holy night... What will the children of man think up next.
I pray that you and yours will have a joyous celebration.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Who are you going to spend this festive night with?
It seems that the celebratory banquet aboard the Grandcypher is already underway.
Everyone is having the time of their lives to make this a memorable day.
Oh, sorry. I forgot that the children of man find the night air of winter to be cold.
You should bundle up so you don't catch a cold.

Hm? (Captain), why have you come here? Did you grow weary of the festivities?
I see. The feast was growing long, was it? Taking a reprieve from the bustle isn't such a bad idea.
I'm mistaken?
Me? At the party? So you came here to invite me.
(Hmm. There is no reason for me to participate in a party held by the children of man, but...)
Well, since you went out of your way, I have no objections.
Let us hurry to the venue. Once we arrive, would you introduce me to your favorite dish?

What's a... Santa? An old guy who rides... flying reindeer?
Why does he do that?
Good boys and girls? Presents?
...
I'm going to go help Apollo.

Waiting and waiting...
But he's not here yet.
I got a present from Santa last year, so I wanted to thank him...
Santa only comes... at night while you're asleep?
...
Then good night, (Captain)...

There. All ready.
Ah, (Captain).
I wanted to thank Santa last year. But I fell asleep.
So this year I wrote a letter.
Do you think he'll read it?
I sure hope he does...

Om nom nom...
Ah... (Captain)...
You... You have it all wrong. I'm not sneaking snacks. Honest.
I made these cookies myself. Lyria and Io taught me how.
This letter... It's from Santa. He answered my letter last year.
It made me so happy... That's why I decided to give him a present this year.
I heard he likes cookies and milk... So I really gave it my all.
I'm... very happy with the results. Do you want to try one, (Captain)?
Say "ahh."

Owen

What are you doing at this hour, (Captain)?
Me? I'm keeping watch.
Tonight's the big night, and that usually means people are more lax.
Therefore I've taken it upon myself to remain vigilant in their stead.
It's times like these that attract misfortune.
Hm? This large bag I'm carrying?
This would be... Ahem. This bag contains everything I need in order to carry out my duties.
In any case you needn't worry about what I'm holding.
Now it's gotten awfully late, (Captain). Might I suggest retiring to your room?
If you don't get to bed soon, Santa Claus won't be able to deliver his presents.
But don't worry. Santa will definitely pay you a visit tonight.
And when you wake up the next morning, you'll find a wonderful present. I guarantee it.

What to do...
(Captain)? What a coincidence meeting you here.
What am I doing? I'm procuring the necessary items for the party tonight.
But...
[Choice] Something the matter?
Yes... The princess has ordered me to buy a cute stuffed animal...
However, I don't know what that means...
(Captain)... Would you be able to assist me?
Thank you. Then let us buy the cutest toy we can!

Who goes there!
(Captain)? May I ask what you're doing? To think you would appear in my room at such a late hour...
Hm? That is quite a large sack you're carrying. And what is that in your hand...
Perhaps... Were you meaning to leave me a gift as I was sleeping?
P-please accept my apologies!
I did not think you would be taking on the role of Santa Claus this night.
Er... I shall go back to sleep presently. Would you mind setting down the gift then?

Npc m 3030145000 01.jpg
Pamela

Hello, (Captain)! I heard that Santa's coming tonight. Do you have your stockings ready?
If they're peephole stockings, the presents will fall right out. I made that mistake once when I was a child...
Oh, by peephole stockings, I'm talking about stockings with a gaping hole where the big toe would be.
I sure hope Santa's bag of presents doesn't come with any peepholes!

Just before the orchestra's holiday performance, the dulcet tones of a flute echo throughout the halls.
Ah! (Captain)! You've come to see our performance?
To tell you the truth, I'm really nervous... It's always like this before I go on stage. If I don't practice, then I can't calm my nerves.
(Captain)? Why did you pull out your handkerchief so quickly?
What! How did you pull flowers out of it! That's amazing... Ah, I see what's going on.
Hehe. Thank you. I feel a little less nervous now.
I'll play my heart out during the performance! I hope you'll like it!

Happy holidays, (Captain). I just finished writing a greeting card for you. Here you go.
I drew a picture on it of you and Vyrn as Santa and his reindeer.
You think this Santa really looks like you? Good, I tried my best to think of your face when working on it!
Hm? You're going to hang this up in your room? Eep, th-thank you!
It's a bit embarrassing, but I'm glad you like it!

Oh, (Captain)! Thanks for coming to our holiday concert!
I was nervous about performing in such a large theater, but I'm glad things turned out okay.
Eep!
Haha, I guess all that peace of mind got my stomach growling somehow.
If you have some time to spare, would you like to come to dinner with me? There's a restaurant I've been meaning to check out.
Yay! I'm glad I invited you! Now I'll just need a few minutes to get ready.

Paris (Event)

Today's a time when the whole world feels restless. (Captain), do you remember what I said earlier?
Heh. I see you're already busy with preparations for tonight's feast.
You always enjoy each event to the fullest. I find it truly admirable.
What? No, I'm not being sarcastic. These day-to-day activities are what make us human.
I hate to neglect these events, but... I'm afraid the reconstruction of Verona is far from complete.
Hm? You want me to stay? Are you sure?
I couldn't possibly decline your kind offer, (Captain). I'll gladly join you.

Last year's holiday party really left an impression on me.
I volunteered to chip in for this year's preparations. Would you mind having a look at what I've done so far?
Hmm, sprinkling some white powder on the windows will make it look like they have snow on them? That sounds like an excellent idea.
In the past I've always left this work to the servants. I never knew to appreciate how much work it is.
Hm? My clothes are dirty? My apologies, how uncouth of me.
It just goes to show how hard I've been working, you say?
Haha, I'll gladly accept those words.
Now then, I'd best get to decorating these windows. Would you be so kind as to help me, (Captain)?

Yet another holiday party approaches tonight. I must say I now look forward to helping with arrangements.
A vibrant party is all well and good, but by lending a hand, I come to learn more about the townspeople.
Here's a few points I noticed.
With but scant few words, I can see that each person has their own story to tell, climbing different rungs of the social ladder, and dealing with their own unique problems.
I wish I could ensure happiness for everyone, but...
Ahem. I digress. 'Tis a night for joviality, and I won't drag down the mood with difficult matters.
You and all in the crew deserve a night of joyous partying.
Have a look at the decorations I had a hand in when you can. I pulled out all the stops this year.

Candles are lit and placed in ornate glass cases all around Verona's plaza today.
This holiday is a reminder of the importance of spending time with family.
I wondered if there was anything I could do to make this precious time even more enjoyable for the people.
Though I am but an amateur who came to rely on the handiwork of the attendants, I think it was a success.
It's starting to get dark. The full brilliance of the candles should soon become clear.
I think I shall head over to the plaza to see how the people are faring. Will you come along as well,(Captain)?
The experience I gain this year will be useful for future holidays. If you have any feedback, I would like to hear it.

Pavidus: Season's greetings!
Bird: Coo, coo! (Happy holidays!)
Pavidus: (Captain)! Why don't you come eat with us? You can warm up with us too!
Chick: Chirp, chirp! (Great idea! We'll warm you up!)
Chirp, chirp! (Make yourself at home! Come warm up over here! Don't be shy now!)
Pavidus: You're a little too small, though...
Chick: Chirpy chirp! (I'm what? Why you...)
Pavidus: Hey! Ow! That hurts! I'm sorry!

Bird: Coo, coo! (Pavi! Let's sing a holiday song!)
Pavidus: Uh... That's a little sudden, don't you think? And I don't really know any...
Oh! (Captain)! I've been asked to sing a holiday song...
But I don't know any. Do you think you could teach me one?

Bird: Caw, caw!
(Pavi! It's the holiday season! Don't you have a present for me?)
Pavidus: O-of course I do! Here...
Bird: Caw, caw!
(Oh! I knew you wouldn't forget!)
Pavidus: I f-figured you'd come asking—I mean, I wanted to show you my thanks for all you do...
Bird: Caw, caw!
(Hey! I heard that!)
Pavidus: Eep! Ow, ow, ow! I'm sorry!
N-never mind him, (Captain)... Ow, ow, ow! Just give me a second and I'll give you your present too!

Bird: Quack, quack! (Pavi, It's that special night! Dress as Santa!)
Pavidus: What? I can't do that! Right, (Captain)?

Choose: You'd look good as Santa.
Pavidus: Really? Y-you're not kidding?
Chick: Chirp! (You don't trust us or (Captain)?)
Pavidus: I-I didn't say that...
All right, master. T-this year, I'll be Santa!
Bird: Quack! (Good! Get on it! Start delivering those presents!)
Quack! (As for me, I just want 100 different kinds of nuts!)
Chick: Chirp! (I want a great big house! And it better be made of wood!)
Pavidus: Eeep! You mean I'm supposed to give all of you presents too?
(Captain)... Please help me get all the things they want!

Pavidus:So I bend this twig here... And place the berries there...
Oh, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
Yes, I'm working on a wreath. I went into the woods and gathered everything that looked like it might be useful...
Chick: Chirp! (Ohh, what's this? A new house for us?)
Bird: Quack! (Hey, Pavi, making it pretty's all well and good, but this stupid nest has a hole through it. Who could live in this?)
Pavidus: Master, wait! Stop grabbing at it! This isn't meant to be lived in!
Bird: Quack, quack! (Amateur. I'll show you how to make a proper nest. Give it here!)
Pavidus: Nooo! If you fill in the hole, it won't be a wreath anymore!
(Captain), please, help me explain it to them!

Ah, the holiday season. I remember celebrating with my siblings when I was a child.
Would you look at that... I haven't seen this many people out on the town since my days with the Dragon Knights.
Heh. I suppose it doesn't hurt to enjoy yourself every once in a while.

Hm, have I caught a cold? Maybe I'll skip the festivities tonight and have a quiet evening to myself. Oh, is that you, Captain? What is it? It's not good to be alone? Wait! Don't come any closer! No! I mean, you'll catch my cold! Just listen to me! Hm? You'll stay and take care of me? But you promised to go see the night sky with everyone. I'll be fine, so hurry up and go. You're pretty stubborn, you know that? Fine, you can stay, but when I'm better, I'll show you a night sky like you've never seen.

Humph. This has become quite the blizzard.
Everything was in place for a most picturesque night until the capricious whims of nature had to go and spoil it all.
Heh, it's just like you to always be optimistic. If you'd like, we can go out another time.
The weather is unfortunate, but this food is first-rate. Let's enjoy ourselves with this bounty.
What comes to mind on a night like this? Hmm, I guess I could share some memories with you.
There was a snowstorm a long time ago, just like the one we're having tonight. Mother read a story to me and my brothers.
We were so absorbed in the story that we threw tantrums and pestered Mother to continue...
Heh... What a thing to remember. Now I'd like to hear one of your memories.

Enjoying five-star cuisine created by a top-ranking chef, all while surveying the breathtaking night view outside... I can't think of a better way to spend the holidays.
Oh, a shooting star. I just caught a glimpse of one by that mountain over yonder.
Heh. Put my hands together and make a wish, you say? Very well. I suppose it wouldn't hurt.
I wish that I would continue to meet suitable vassals.
What's that? You spotted another shooting star? And you want me to make another wish? Well, if you insist.
I wish that all skydwellers would be able to spend the holidays with those dear to them.
You think the scale of my wish is too large? But that's exactly what wishes are for—the grander, the better.
I've already been blessed with precious vassals such as yourself, so I thought it only right to wish for the happiness of others.
By the way—what was your wish, (Captain)? Care to share it with me?

It was supposed to be the perfect holy night with us enjoying a scrumptious dinner cooked by a top-rate chef, over a beautiful view of the snow-laden town...
If only I didn't make a mistake in the arrangements for our carriage ride home.
I had arranged for someone I know to come, but it's my fault for neglecting to make the final confirmations. I apologize.
Hm? What are you doing, gathering all that snow?
Oho, I see. A tiny snowman, huh? Clever of you to use leaves to recreate my hairstyle.
I suppose I'll give it a try too.
Percival swiftly makes a figure out of snow. He trims a leaf into the shape of Vyrn and puts it on the figure's shoulder.
Hmph... How's that?
Since we're waiting for the carriage to arrive, I guess we might as well make the rest of the crew too.

It's the holiday season, isn't it? Hm? Do you want me to use my powers to make it snow?
I'm not so sure I can, but since you're the one that's asking, (Captain), I'll give it my best shot!

Take a look at this, (Captain)! They were handing these out in town!
If we write what we want on a piece of paper and put it inside this stocking, we'll get it as a present the next morning!
What are you going to write, (Captain)? I wonder if should write Mom...
Actually I think I'd rather look for my mom myself.

Word is that he soars the skies to hand out presents to all the good kids.
A cold northerly wind blows during these nights. It even snows sometimes.
I wonder if Santa Claus can read the winds. It worries me a bit...
Do you know how I might be able to meet him? Surely there's a thing or two I can help him with.
Hm? The kids on the crew already have their share of presents, so there's no need?
Sorry, I didn't know you were helping to deliver the presents too.
I guess I can just take it easy and enjoy the holidays then.

Spending the holidays with your significant other is certainly one way to go about it.
I hear the weather's very important during such an occasion.
For setting up the mood in particular.
Maybe I can lend a helping hand with that!
(Captain), do you know what sort of weather is preferable for such an evening?
A starlit sky with gentle snowfall, you say?
But those events occur in completely different climates!
To make both happen concurrently might be beyond my powers...
Still, I'm sure it'd make for a wonderful spectacle.
I wonder... if I continue my training as a wind shaman, will I one day be able to summon such wondrous weather?
If I do, you'll be the first person I show it to, (Captain)!

(Captain), I've been pondering something for awhile now.
How does Santa Clause fly through the air?
Oh! What if, what if he's some sort of immensely powerful mage?
If so, I bet being a wind shaman qualifies me to become his apprentice.
What do you think, (Captain)?
I hope I get to meet him one day!
You'll help me find him, won't you, (Captain)?

It's the holiday season, isn't it? Do you want me to use my powers to make it snow?
I'm not so sure I can, but since you're the one that's asking, (Captain), I'll give it my best shot!

Take a look at this, (Captain)! They were handing these out in town!
If we write what we want on a piece of paper and put it inside this stocking, we'll get it as a present the next morning!
What are you going to write, (Captain)? I wonder if should write Mom...
Actually I think I'd rather look for my mom myself.

Word is that he soars the skies to hand out presents to all the good kids.
A cold northerly wind blows during these nights. It even snows sometimes.

Santa...
So if I hang a stocking up, some crazy guy in red will come and bring me presents?
It's strange that some people believe in him and some people don't. I wonder why...
Me? Well, I... think it'd be nice if it were true.
Huh? These stockings I hung? Well... I mean... who doesn't want a present?

Say, (Captain), it's snowing outside.
Snow is cold... But if this reality is only a temporary space...
Then this chill... And even your warmth... I suppose none of it is actually real.
Ha-ha! Oh, it's nothing. Are you free today? I'd love it if we could spend a little more time together!

What exactly are you supposed to do for the holidays? I think the original purpose is different from its purpose nowadays.
I wonder when it changed... Say, what do you think, (Captain)?
As long as you can enjoy spending time with friends, that's good enough for you, huh?
Ha-ha... Figured you'd say that! Well then, shall we go and help set up for all the fun planned for tonight? Heh-heh!

How did this custom of exchanging presents in the dead of winter come to be? What do you think, (Captain)?
Would you say it's a tradition from somewhere specific? Did someone intentionally spread it? Or is it something entirely different?
It's hard to guess what would make an appropriate present without knowing the holiday's origin.
Huh? You want to know if I'm having trouble deciding on a present?
Why is that your assumption? I mean, you're just...
Well... You're actually not far off the mark.
Um... (Captain), please put your head together with me if you would.

(Captain)! Here's a present for you!
Ah, but don't open it yet! Hehehe...
First a question for you. Is there actually anything inside that box?
Maybe there is, and maybe there isn't. See, what you have in your hands is—
Hey, hey, hey! I told you not to open it yet! I'm not done talking!
See? It's empty.
The gift is my feelings...
Happy holidays, (Captain)

Pholia

Pholia: On your travels... Have you ever made acquaintance with Santa Claus?
As the sovereign of this land, I wish to create the best winter festival possible. Only, I find it exceedingly difficult to track that man down.
You are saying you don't know how to contact him? Then I suppose there is no other choice...
It is during times like these that I must go out and deliver happiness to the children of this land myself!
Bai Ze! Prepare the sleigh!
Bai Ze: The sleigh has already been prepared... But I won't pull it.
Pholia: Don't be ridiculous! (Captain), of course you'll be coming too! I hope you feel the winter spirit!

Pholia: It's all because of Old Man Santa Claus that the children's faces are lit with bright smiles.
I'd like to commend him for his work, though speaking to him directly is out of my control...
Eureka! I just came up with a cunning stratagem!
I'll fall asleep with a stocking in my hand and leverage what a good little girl I've been! I believe that's called a honey trap!
Bai Ze: However, in the time since we first met, I've never seen you receive a gift from him.
I assume Santa Claus is already aware of your adulthood.
Pholia: Hm, that's definitely a possibility...
(Captain)! I shall have you take my place! Do not worry; I will prepare a room for us.
We'll all lie in wait for the old man to come down the chimney!

Season's greetings! You come at an opportune time,(Captain)!
Do you remember how we missed our chance to meet Santa Claus last year?
I have a new honey trap in mind this time.
I call it Operation Body Warmer.
It can't be easy soaring through the freezing winter skies with his aging body... But one look at our warm and cozy party grounds should entice him...
The moment we've drawn his attention, we'll have to surround and corner him. That'll be our chance to invite Santa and finally reap the rewards of our efforts.
Get the other crew members here pronto, (Captain)!
We'll have to make the party so grand that Santa can't help but take notice!
C'mon! The more clamorous fellows like Cain we can gather, the better!

Everyone's smiling from the bottom of their heart...
What is it, (Captain)? Hm? There's something you want me to help with?
What's this... Baking a cake? Mm... I'm not so sure.
(Takes me back to how I used to prepare meals for Dad and everyone else back at the factory.)
Okay then. Get ready for the best cake you've ever had.

Come look at the snow fall, (Captain). Isn't it stunning?
Hm? You challenge me to a snowball fight?
Well, I don't think that—
Guh! I never said I would—
(Captain)?
(Fled? No, I sense the captain nearby. Aiming for my blind spot perhaps?)
Humph. You seem intent on striking me with snowballs. This duel is just what I need to warm up with.
Bring it on, (Captain)!
Haaaah!

What in the world are you doing, (Captain)?
Huh? You're making festive wreaths?
(That's supposed to be a wreath? Hm, looks like mangled pieces of scrap or something... No, what am I thinking?)
Say, (Captain). How about I give you a hand with that?
I'm actually pretty good with handicrafts, including wreaths believe it or not.
Okay, pay close attention, because I'm about to show you how to make the prettiest holiday wreaths you've ever seen!

Season's greetings, Cap'n!
Don't forget, if ya weren't good this year, Santa's not comin' to see ya!

So tonight's that special night, huh? I always used to look forward to presents from Santa.
Hmm? What kind of presents did I get?
Let's see... wooden toy tools, a model airship. Stuff like that.
That airship was my favorite. Wherever I went, I would always bring it with me.
Come to think of it, whatever happened to that thing?

Oy, (Captain). Get any presents from Santa Claus?
You're grinnin' from ear to ear, so I thought you might've...
Heh-heh. Seein' that smile on your face makes me smile too.
But watchin' all the kids get presents sure is hard for the adults.
Makes me wish I were a kid again.

What? You want my help giving out presents to the crew?
Haha, you came to the right place!
Right, so I'll dress up as Santa—
O-oh... You wanna be Santa, (Captain)?
Then I guess I'll be the reindeer...
Vyrn's got dibs on that? Well, whaddyou even need me for then?
Whaaat! The sleigh? Whaddya mean, the sleigh!
Oh yeah, go ahead. Have a real good laugh at ol' Rackam's expense...
Well, I guess you deserve to have your fun. Tonight's about celebration after all.
All right then! If it puts a smile on your face, I guess I'll be your sleigh, or whatever else you want!

You want my help makin' a wreath for the Grandcypher? You got it, Captain.
What? You don't know how they're made? So that's why you needed me.
I see, I see. Well, I got some bad news for ya,(Captain)...
I don't know, either.
Now what? If we just eyeball one and try to make our own any old how, it's sure to fall apart right away.
Welp, age before beauty, I guess. Let's ask Eugen.
That old man's a treasure trove of random knowledge. Betcha he'll know.

Ah, so you've heard as well, (Captain).
There's an old man with a huge red bag who gives out presents to children...
While sending them flying with his fists.
That accursed old hack! I'm going to stay up all night to get him. Stay with me and help, (Captain).

(Captain), last year I stayed up all night, but that old hack in red didn't show up.
But for some reason there were presents laid next to both my bed and your bed...
What could this mean?
Sigh... This is baffling. If he knew just how strong we were, he would've never come.
Ah! He must've snuck in when we weren't looking! And that's why he laid the presents down!
I can't believe he was able to do that! Grr! How much longer will you taunt me, you old fart!
We can't back down, (Captain).
We've gotta try even harder this year to challenge old red!

Get a load of this, (Captain)!
Check out all this stuff the old guy in red left us!
Ooh, a greeting card! "I look forward to meeting you again next year," it says!
You know what that means, Captain? The old-timer'll finally be ready to duke it out with me!
Whoo! Can't wait till next year!

Hey (Captain)! Come check out this box! It was sitting by my pillow when I woke up.
And it's bursting with food! There's even a message. "Take care of yourself."
You get it, right, (Captain)! They're tellin' me to eat up and build some muscle!
Darn that old red dude... What's he doing, sending provisions into the enemy camp? Tryin' to say I'm weak, huh!
Just you wait... (Captain)! We're training! I'm gonna get ripped and blow that red dude outta the water!

Oh, you were thirsty? O-okay, well, grab a drink and hurry back to your room.
Huh? Um, I'm not up to anything... Wait! Don't come over here!
What do you mean, what's that? Can't you tell it's a cake? I mean, it's a little soggy, but...
No! Stop! Don't look at me with those pitiable eyes!
Ungh, I wish I were dead! I'd rather embrace death than suffer this disgrace!
Huh? Oh... S-sure, you can help me.
Let's roll up our sleeves and bake the tastiest cake the crew's ever had!
That's right! There's nothing the two of us can't accomplish when we work together!

This went well! Hahaha! Have a look! This is what I can do!

Why are you here so late?

Huh? What was I doing? I'm making a cake!
Look at it, (Captain)! It is the cake! Nothing like the disaster I made last year!
Hahaha! How do you like that? I've gotten quite skilled at this.
What? I should watch where I step? What are yo—
O-Ouch... Oh no... My cake...
Just when I finally made it right...
Why do I always slip up when it matters the most!
Don't you dare look at me with those pitiable eyes!
Ungh, I wish I were dead! I'd rather embrace death than be so humiliated!

???:Gah...
Razia:Who is it!
(Captain)?
What am I doing? What does it look like I'm doing? I'm knitting socks.
For what? It's obvious!
So Santa can put a present in it!
What do I want?
Hm... I want bullets for my cannonlance.
The bullets are custom order. I can't just buy them anywhere.
I asked my servants to purchase them for me, but they all insist they can't be bought.
So I need another way to get my goods!
That's why I've decided to ask Santa for them instead.
What? Why are you looking at me like that?
S-stop! Don't you dare look at me with those pitiable eyes!
Kill me! I'd rather be dead than looked at like that!

Ah, (Captain), eh? Ready to celebrate the holidays, I take it?
No matter how old I get, today never gets any less exciting to me.
Why, you ask? Because everyone just looks like they're having so much fun.
Okay! Let's make tonight's feast extra festive! I'm gonna work hard to give the whole crew a holiday feast like nothing they've seen before!

(Captain), could I ask you something?
I was thinking of dressing up as Santa Claus this year... What do you think?
If I dyed my hair and my beard white, it could work, right?
Oh, come on. I want to give the kids something to smile about.
I could throw a feast like I did last year, but I thought I'd step things up a notch.
Pretty good idea, huh?
Hm? Ahahaha! Don't worry, you'll get your present along with the rest of them!

Hm, I dunno...
Ah, (Captain). Guess you found me, huh. Since you're here, I've got something to discuss.
I was wondering how we could make this an entertaining night for everyone.
We had fantastic grub, and the kids all raved about my Santa Claus outfit last year.
What I'd give to see those smiles again...
...
You know, I don't exactly have to come up with something new to please everyone.
It's you who made me realize that. We must never forget our humble beginnings!
All right, time to go shopping for groceries. I've got a ton of cooking to do later.
That includes my own share too, of course! And I eat a lot!

Well, well. You signed up for this eating competition too, eh?
That should make this a holiday belly-battle to remember!
Hm? You thought this was gonna be a chicken challenge?
I can see why you'd think that, but nope! Tonight's a holiday cake-eating battle!
Dahaha! Cake is a pretty heavy food, so this is no amateur rumble!

Good timing, (Captain). Here's your present. Catch.
You look surprised... I know it's not like me to partake in this gift-giving thing.
But there were more than a few fathers in my unit back in the day.
We all chipped in to give those little shrimps presents whenever the occasion arose.
So preparing presents for you all takes me back to those days...

Hm? Kind of surprising to see you here, (Captain).
Me? I'm out here on a grocery run.
Meat, vegetables, wheat, and what have you... They asked me to help out in the kitchen.
You know how tonight's that special night? Well, they needed more people to help prepare tonight's feast.
I'm not a real chef by any means, but I'm somewhat of a halfway-decent cook, and my muscles are better put to use with these sorts of errands anyway.
Wasn't too keen on it at first...
But seeing how gung-ho everyone was reminded me of how I used to do things back in the day.
So I can't go around town with you right now, but you can look forward to some good food later.

Hey there, (Captain). Sorry, but I'm kinda in a hurry right now.
The kitchen's been having some trouble. Apparently there's not enough cake to go around; someone didn't make a proper head count.
There's not enough ingredients left to complete the job, so I'm off to fetch more.
Huh? You want to join me? Nah, not necessary. I can handle it on my own.
It's chilly, so you might catch a cold.
Fine, fine. Just stop glaring at me. Guess it would be more efficient to have you along anyway.
Since you're going through the trouble, let me know if there's something you want. I'll get it for you as a thank you present.

Hah, I'm getting good vibes about tonight, (Captain). In fact it's making me itch for a gamble...

All right, (Captain), how's 'bout a wager?
Wanna see if the legendary man in red actually comes to town?
If you wake up tomorrow with a present next to you, then you win. And it's yours to keep obviously.
Heh heh, deal? Don't stay up too late tonight. You'll want to get a good night's rest.

Ahh, (Captain). Beautiful night, isn't it? My gambling heart aches like this every year.
But I won't do any of that tonight. Let's find a nice place and have a drink.
Hm? Am I trying to be a good little boy?
Hahaha! I don't need any presents from that gramps in red!
So what do you say? My treat! You'll have to settle for juice though.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
How about it, Captain? You up for a quick gamble to liven up this restless night?
We'll be betting our own time. The loser has to accompany the winner for the remainder of this festive day.
Huh? You were planning on hanging out with me anyway?
Guess I didn't have to bother with the roundabout invite after all.
Out with gamble night.
And in with candle night.

Check it out, (Captain). The holiday illuminations give the snow such a sparkly glow.
Seems like the perfect day to sit down at a swanky place for a grand feast.
I think I'm gonna bet this night on you...
Haha, okay! Let's get this show started...
Give me your hand, (Captain). I'm gonna show you a wonderful evening.
Heh, let's hope Lady Luck doesn't feel jealous when the day's over.

The feasts around this time of year usually have a wholly cooked bird, right? Is it a duck?
It's not like I like to eat duck... I just happened to remember something about a talking duck.
But I guess if I had to pick my last meal, I'd want it to be duck with olive marinade!

A holiday gift? For me?
Quite a curious thing to give a zombie a present...
But... I suppose I'm happy to receive it. Thank you...
Heh-heh... It's been some time since I've gotten a gift...

Here. Take this. It's a present.
You gave me a present last year, right? I thought I would pay you back.
I'm surprised that these little customs have become so natural for me. Up until now...
You know what? Never mind. I wouldn't want to say anything to spoil the festivities today.
Oh, that's right. There is one thing I should say though—happy holidays.

Happy holidays!
I just finished sending presents back home. What can I say? I'm a family person.
Being out here all the time, I don't get many chances to visit my family.
Did you want a present too, (Captain)?
You want a personal bathtub? Just be careful not to let your head go underwater. That would make you a... tuba diver. Sorry. Three out of ten?
You're feeling hungry now? I'm all out of snacks, but... I can give you a hug!

It's a happy happy holiday... Nom, nom.
Oh, these? I'm decorating the tree with tasty treats.
You see, after the party we can just eat 'em! There's no need to clean 'em up—two birds with one stone! Genius, am I right?
Speaking of which, I've been eating a few myself while putting 'em up. Here, you want one?
You're good? More for me then, I guess!
Mmm... Oh gosh, they're so scrumptious and delicious...
Huh? They're all gone already! Why didn't you tell me sooner, (Captain)!
Oh geez, we gotta go out and buy some more! Come on, let's move it!

Happy holidays! How are preparations for the party coming along?
I'm making treats that look like Santa. Check them out!
What do you think? Aren't they cute?
You want to know how to make them? Here, let's make some together!
First cut a strawberry across the middle. Then squeeze a round dab of whipped cream into the opening in the larger half.
Next draw a face on the cream with chocolate. Finally, set the smaller half of the strawberry on top like a hat. And voila!
Not bad, (Captain)! You're really good with your hands. Want to make some more?
That one turned out cute too! Nice job! Let's keep up the momentum and fill up this tray!
What's that? You feel like you got suckered into helping? Whoops, you caught me red-handed!
But you're really good at it, and it's fun making them with you!
Would you mind helping me make some more if you have time? Well, what do you say?

Happy holidays! Are you enjoying yourself, (Captain)?
Hahaha! Don't worry—the preparations for the party are already finished!
I'm not cruel enough to make an innocent kid like you help out two years in a row!
But this year I've hit a different snag. You see, I don't have a date for the party yet.
With no one to go with, I guess I'll be eating all those holiday treats by myself.
Hmm... Do you think there might be a kind soul out there who'd accompany me to the party?
Really? You'll come with me?
I can't thank you enough, (Captain)! Then let's get going! Here, take my hand!

Hey there, (Captain). Hmm? Ah yeah, it's that special night, isn't it?
You came to invite me out to the festivities? Hahaha. I bet everyone is more lively than ever tonight.
Though it's a joy in itself just watching people have fun...
I agree that it's also important to have fun yourself. Thanks, Captain. I'd be happy to go out and join the festivities with you.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Look, it's snowing. We'd best prepare the fires tonight.
Seeing the snow reminds me of the brilliant white petals that would fall in Verona.
Strange how the two are connected in my mind despite them being completely opposite seasons.

Happy holidays, (Captain).
I'm sorry to disturb you on this holiday night, but I would like to discuss something with you.
You're familiar with the tale of how Santa Claus goes from house to house, right?
It occurred to me to pen a work based on said tale.
This holiday brings out joy in everyone, young and old.
If I can come up with a proper play, I'm sure it'll make countless people happy.
Which brings me to my request. I would like your opinion on the draft I'm writing.

There's a local theater troupe putting on a show for the holidays.
What surprises me is that it's the first stage play I wrote as Bill the Bard.
I'm glad other troupes have picked it up, but I didn't think I'd see it being performed at this time of year.
It's been a while, so I'll probably go have look while in disguise or something.
A play consists of actors and the audience, hence you could say a production is a living, breathing entity. Figuratively speaking of course.
I'm curious to see how they interpret my work and how it's received by the audience.
If you're free, would you like to go with me? I would definitely like to hear your opinion as well.

Today is truly a most blessed day. (Captain), are you all right spending it in a place like this?
You want to spend the holiday with me? Very well, then! Let us talk about our everlasting friendship.

On a most holy night, under the warm fire's light, two share a moment of joy. Joined by the bond of their care for each other.
Okay, time to call it a day.
Aaah! (Captain)! How long have you been standing behind me?
N-nothing! I'm not writing anything special! Just a diary of sorts!
N-no, I'm afraid I can't show it to you right now! It's a diary after all! Can't be showing that to everyone now can we!
Ah! Yes, the party! I'd better go get ready! See you there!
(Whew, that was a close one. It's still not ready. It needs a lot of work before I can show it to anyone.)

The winds of winter night whisper to me... Let us alight. The time has come. To new skies we go!
(Captain)! I'm sorry; I hope I didn't disturb you. I was reading a play and got carried away.
It's a play enjoyed by all ages. In my younger days I saw it with my family a number of times.
I remember it like it was yesterday. What a beautiful performance it was. The first time I ever saw it, it moved me to my very core.
And ever since I've been an admirer of this play. I've been a patron of many a performance, but this one truly stands out from the rest.
Hm? You'd like to see it? Then please, allow me to perform it for you. It'd be much more interesting that way.

Have a look at this snowfall, (Captain)!
...
These snowflakes dance in the night sky like white flower petals. And the way the street's lights filter through it all...
There's no other word for it but breathtaking!
Yet they are petals that disappear at a touch.
Beauty is fleeting—
Achoo!
Haha, whoops. Obviously it's quite cold out.
Let's go inside.
There's a party waiting for us.

You can go anywhere on this ship and still feel the warmth of the holiday spirit. It's great.
Maybe it's just me, but whenever I hear the joy in someone's voice, I feel this swell of emotion in my chest.
Exuberant conversations take place by snow-covered windows, in contrast to quiet toasts shared between intimate friends. The gentle glow of calming candles blankets us all.
A symphony of colors drapes across rows of evergreen, serenaded by instruments that sing like a joyous chorus. My heart leaps out to join in dance, and—
Whoa! What's gotten into me?
Er, I was just reciting a verse from an old play! There's no way I could ever improvise something like that on the spot!
Anyway, the party is about to start. Let's not keep everyone waiting.

Everyone in town is really busy, so you know it must be time for the holidays.
A greeting card? You want me to make one because everyone else is? Hmm, should I make a collage?

A holiday party? I'm sorry, but I'm not fond of noisy gatherings.
I'll just bring some food and cake to my room and eat it alone.
N-no, you don't have to keep me company. Don't say such useless things.
Well, if you sit quietly, then I guess I don't mind...

And today marks the start of such festivities...
(Everyone's getting carried away in the foolishness of it all...)
I have many fond memories of holiday get-togethers with my family.
Hm? You suggest we all have cake together?
Well, if it's just eating cake, I'll oblige.
Thanks.

Ah yes... I've still yet to decide what to bring to the gift swap.
(Of course, I'm not sure I'm cut out for partying with everyone. Maybe I'll take a pass this time.)
Then again, I've already made this picture with the season's festivities in mind. I wonder if anyone would actually appreciate it.
Sigh... Never mind...

Choose: That sounds like a great present.
Does it?
Well, here. You sign it with your name, and then I'll feel better about giving it away. Good. Glad that's settled.

Heading to bed already, (Captain)? Did all the fun at the holiday party wear you out?
(I see. Then you ought to get some sleep.)
That works out perfectly. I'll sneak this collage into the room once (Captain)'s asleep...
Gasp!
P-pretend you didn't hear that...
A gift for you? I have no such thing. Don't get your hopes up.
Now, good night. And... keep the door unlocked, okay?

Happy holidays, Captain.
This is a special time of year, so let's make tonight a night we'll never forget!

Well now, you seem to be in good spirits, (Captain). Are you looking forward to seeing Santa?
Perhaps you think you're not a child anymore. But I think Santa will be the judge of that.
To Santa, anyone could still be a child.
Hehe. Just keep an ear out for him. His jolly laugh echoes through the snowy skies.
If you hear him, then he must be coming soon. Happy holidays!

(Captain), for you, what's the significance of this holiday? Is it a time to spend with a loved one? Or perhaps...
Hehe... For me, it's a day to spend with friends.
Hmm... The cookies will be a while...
Would you like to take a walk with me?
Let's stroll down these dazzling streets together. I bet it'll be something you won't forget.

Io and the others went out. Apparently there was some event in town.
Wait... That means you and I are all alone, doesn't it?
Hehe... The holiest of nights is upon us, and it seems that my present has arrived a little early.
There's still time until the party, how about we have a nice cup of tea together?

Oh dear. I see you can't sleep either, (Captain).
Hehe, just remembering the wonderful party we had is enough to give me another boost of energy.
Io certainly got a little too excited, didn't she?
It didn't take long for the exhaustion to catch up to her, of course, but she looked absolutely adorable while drifting off.
I'm sure you're tired as well, but knowing you, you're forcing yourself to stay awake.
Perhaps Santa's taking a bit too long to stop by, so you decided to go seek him out instead?
Hehe, I'm only kidding. I know all too well how a festive night can keep you awake for hours.
Since we're both awake anyway, why don't we keep each other company for the rest of this short night?

Happy Holidays, (Captain). I see you're busy preparing for the party.
Trying so hard to make sure the crew has a good time. You're such a dear!
Let me give you a hand. I love cooking!
I'll make a delicious feast for the whole crew to enjoy tonight!

Well, look at that. The whole ship is bustling.
Everyone has smiles on their faces—what a wonderful night.
Haha. Believe it or not, I've got more than a few cherished memories of this festive night.
Back when I lived with my husband, I would make a small feast.
Then we would stay up a little later than normal.
It was only the two of us back then, but we were happy together.
Yes, this festive night is just filled with memories.

Have you asked Santa Claus for what you want yet, (Captain)?
Tonight is all about the anticipation, heehee.
Me? Oh, I'm just an old biddy now. We don't get presents, y'know.
What's this? A cute little package for me, (Captain)?
Oh my stars! If this isn't a present, I don't know what is.
You've just made my night! My very own humdinger of a Santa!
I'm touched. I'll put it to good use. Thank you very much, my darling princeGran is the Main Character/princessDjeeta is the Main Character.

(Captain), don't you think holiday trees are wonderful?
Each and every light is sparkling with the wishes of all sorts of people.
What about you? Do you have any wishes you want to make tonight?
I think... I'd ask for the good health of that person.
If that person under a faraway sky is spending their days in good health, then that's enough for me.
Well, truthfully I do get lonely sometimes, but...
With you by my side, I'm plenty happy as is.

The holidays are the perfect time to spend with family.
Oh, Kunlun... I'm so sorry I can't be with you right now.
I can't imagine how lonely you must feel... Ah, aah, aaah!
(Captain)! Let's go back to my hometown! No, we have to go back! Please!

Hey, (Captain). Can you come shopping with me?
There's something I want to get for Kunlun.
Oh, and of course I'll get you something too.
It's kinda chilly outside, so dress warm!

(Captain), check out this tree.
I decorated this one myself, starting with chopping it off in the forest.
How do you like all the fluffy trinkets I decked it out with? Isn't it just lovely?
This is one of my better creations. As for this teddy bear modeled to look like you...
Wha? You thought it was a reindeer? No way—it's not that bad!

(Captain), what do you think of this teddy bear?
Oh, it's not for me. I thought it might make a nice holiday gift for Kunlun.
Ah, so I see you, too, find it hopelessly adorable. Good, I've decided.
Guess I'll pick one up for myself too.
Oopsie, don't mind me! All I said was happy holidays! Really!

Happy holidays, (Captain). Heh, I think even the animals can feel the holiday cheer tonight.
As for me, I'm plenty happy with being able to spend it with you in this quiet forest.
It reminds me of the holy nights I had back in my hometown, surrounded by trees just like this.
We didn't have any fancy lights or ornaments, but we didn't need them to chat the night away and have fun together.
The cakes Kunlun baked sure were amazing too.
And I'm not just saying that because I'm her brother. Everyone in the village always wanted a piece.
Yeah... This feels exactly like those good ol' times.
Hey, (Captain). It's nice to take it easy sometimes instead of an all-out celebration, right?

The holidays are the perfect time to spend with family.
Oh, Kunlun... I'm so sorry I can't be with you right now.
I can't imagine how lonely you must feel... Ah, aah, aaah!
(Captain)! Let's go back to my hometown! No, we have to go back! Please!

Hey, (Captain). Can you come shopping with me?
There's something I want to get for Kunlun.
Oh, and of course I'll get you something too.
It's kinda chilly outside, so dress warm!

(Captain), check out this tree.

It's almost that time of the year again... Hmm, what should I get for (Captain)...
Wah! (Captain)! Where'd you come out from?

Red alert, red alert! (Captain)! The Red General is mounting an attack!
On a silent and holy night, when all are fast asleep, when they least expect it... Ka-boom, ka-boom!
An aerial present bomb strike!
Our army's shouts of joy turns to screams of agony!
(Captain)! Are countermeasures ready?
Make sure to check the marshmallow trenches and barricades of holly!
And most important, the turkey stronghold!
W-what I'm trying to say it... Happy holidays!

(Captain)! Are you looking forward to the party? I sure am!
About the dinner... Actually, one of the dishes is a turkey I caught.
Ah! Aaah...
D-don't pat my head! Don't treat me like a child; I'm a full-grown woman!
Well, I do guess today of all days it's all right to go back to being a child...
B-but look at all this cake!
I-is it really okay to eat all of this?
Ah! Aaah...
I told you not to pat my head!

(Captain)!
How is this stocking meant to be used?
I received one just now, but I can't figure out its purpose for the life of me.
Hm? Hang it near the tree and Santa will put presents inside?
Th-that's a custom for children, isn't it?
Like I've told you so often before, I am an adult!
Well, it's fun enough anyway, and I wouldn't want to be a wet blanket.
Even if it is child's play, I am bound by duty to give my all.
What I mean to say, (Captain), is come hang up your stocking together with me!

(Captain)! Preparations for the holiday party are proceeding as planned!
About the celebratory tree... Don't you think the bird feathers I topped it off with look so wonderfully resplendent?
Haha, I gathered them myself. I consider it an honor to be able to contribute to the holiday cheer!
I've also prepared candy canes, bells, ribbons, and all sorts of sparkly decorations—that's including the shiny star on top!
I-I'm being a little too excited, you think? Well, that's just perfect for the holiday season!
Oh, right! (Captain), do you think you can help me put up some of the decorations?

Sandalphon (Event)

(Captain)... You looking for me?
What's that? You want me to help deliver presents?
Why ask me of all people?
Because I'm the only one who can fly?
Heh... You mortals sure have it rough.
Fair enough. I'll be nice for once considering the occasion, so hand over the presents.
I'll finish this up in a flash. Watch and see how the great Sandalphon gets things done.

Snow... It reminds me of the research lab.
I remember a day when I heard he would be returning, so I waited in the garden, watching the snow pile up by the hour.
The other researchers were surprised I was still there despite his no-show.
I still enjoyed it though. That serene white scenery, never changing day in and day out, was quite beautiful.
Hnph. Sorry you had to listen to that boring story.

Happy holidays!
I get so excited looking at all the lights in town and all the decorations. The trees look so pretty!

So this decoration goes here and...
Maybe we could use more fluff to make it look snowy! What do you think, Graphos?
Ah! You were here all along, Captain? Mm...
I'm making this tree festive by decorating it with pine cones.
I wish I had a present for everyone dear to me...
Volenna, Lyria, Jin...
And, of course, you and everyone else on the crew.
Actually, you've probably already figured it out. But here's my present for you, Captain!

Hmm, hmm...
Ah, (Captain)! Please, don't look!
Ah, sorry! I'm not mad at you or anything!
It's just... the crew taught me, remember? I'm making holiday cards for everyone.
For Volenna and Jin...
Of course, you and Lyria as well!
I'll give it to you once it's done, (Captain). So until then... No peeking, okay?

Wow! This is so delicious!
Isn't it? And we're not even done with the meal, Lyria!
Oh! (Captain)! Happy holidays!
We were asked by the cooks to taste-test the food.
Every single dish they have prepared tastes wonderful. I feel like I'm in heaven!
And they're not just a delight to eat, they're also a sight to behold. There's so much...
I want to be able to make food this well one day!
I'll do my best to make food that you and Lyria will love to eat!

Yaaawn... Oh, I'm sorry, (Captain)! I didn't mean for you to see that...
Hehe... The dinner with everyone was so fun, and the food was delicious. I got a little ahead of myself back there!
I guess I should head back to my room now.
Huh? You'll walk me to my room? Thank you so much!
Oh, it's starting to snow! Hehe, the moonlight is making the snow sparkle. It's so pretty!
But... no matter how pretty it is, I guess it'd feel cold and lonely if I were looking at it by myself.
I'm sure it looks pretty because I have you, Lyria, Volenna, and everyone with me.
I don't need presents or anything else. Just having all of you with me makes my holy night complete!

Every holiday season brings my dream of bringing Honey back closer to reality.
With each hardship she endures, she gets that much closer to being made flesh once again.
Then finally we can share so many romantic evenings together!
The ringing of the bells, the falling snow—we will enjoy all of it hand in hand!
Aaah!

Is it the holiday season already?
My feelings for Honey are stronger than ever at this time of year!
We hold hands in the cold of night to show our affection for each other!
The chilly gusts of wind do not deter us! Fleeting specks of snow melt away in the face of our intense passion!
Nothing can get in the way of our love! And I'll prove it tonight!
Aah!

Ahchoo!
Ah, the night breeze got the better of me. I should be okay though.
I was watching the winter snow with my Honey.
It felt cold at first, but the beauty of Honey standing against the backdrop of the gentle snowflakes fluttering in the twilight firmament made me lose track of time.
I caught a cold, but Honey seems to be okay. Ah, such is the power and beauty of a spirit.
I must admit I cower every time I'm reminded of the many differences between people and spirits—the hurdles I must overcome are oh-so great...
But triumph over such obstacles is precisely the key to strengthening the everlasting love between Honey and I!
Ahh!

Happy holidays, (Captain). Do you happen to know where the party is to be held?
Yes, this year I thought I would join in on the fun too. Rare, I know.
Haha. Actually Honey told me, "I'll worry if you catch a cold like last year, so please stay in your room."
Hehe. Well, I mustn't make light of Honey's concern. Hehehe.
But, then again, 'tis the season for cheer, and I would love the chance to chat with you, Brot.
After all, the relationships we build and how we choose to develop them are truly the point of adventure, are they not?
Sometimes I get down in the dumps. But I guess all this time with Honey has changed me, hasn't it?

Sarunan: ...
Honey: ...
Sarunan: Haha. Indeed, what a wonderful night it is, Honey.
Oh, (Captain). Happy holidays.
As you can see, I decided to have my meal in this little corner of the mess hall.
Oh no, it doesn't feel lonely in the slightest. While everyone else is carousing around, I have Honey beside me.
To be able to enjoy a quiet meal while surrounded by the chatter of comrades fits my personality rather well.

Aaah!

Spending the holiday season with the crew sure makes things interesting. And Honey doesn't seem to mind it either.
I myself usually just like to stay in with Honey.
But I don't mind going out with her to see the crew when she's in good spirits.

Season's greetings, (Captain). Honey and I are having a wonderful time.
Hm? You wish to know what I desire as a gift?
...
Haha, I must say I'm rather surprised myself. I can't think of anything.
Just being here alone with Honey on a special day like this...
Is greater than any gift I could ever ask for.

Sarunan: Season's greetings. I've already picked up some food.
I don't have much of an appetite right now, but that small cook—Elmelaura I believe her name was—prepared a small mousse cake to help me blend in with the festivities.
Honey: ...
Sarunan: Of course I thanked her, Honey. But maybe it didn't come across right?
As I'm sure you know, my people skills are lacking. Perhaps more appropriate words of gratitude will come to me as I empty this plate.
Haha... It's funny how I'm not feeling hungry in the slightest, yet I can't stop eating this. That little lady is one amazing patissier.
Honey: ...
Sarunan: What's that, Honey? You think I should share some with (Captain)? Nuh-uh, this is my cake.
But if (Captain) insists, I suppose I could share a single bite.

Thank you for inviting me to another wonderful holiday gathering.
Hehe... Lately I've been trying to show my gratitude whenever it's due.
Too often fellow crew members have done something for me, be it an offering of food, medicinal herbs, or whatnot...
And I always realize too late that I didn't get a chance to say thanks.
So thanks again for having me, (Captain).

Wow! Look at all that snow, (Captain)!
The way the lights of the city mingle with the snow is so beautiful!
It's super cold tonight, but seeing the smiles on everyone's faces as they walk through the city fills me with warmth.
Hee hee! Something tells me this is gonna be fun!

Hmm. Santa comes in the night to deliver presents to good little children doesn't he?
It's truly a mystery where all those presents come from, not to mention the motive behind why the culprit would do such a thing.
Don't tell me he steals them from somewhere. Hehe.
Wait... Appears and vanishes without a trace... Steals...
Santa must be Chat Noir!
Just kidding! I'd never jump to a conclusion like that. Especially when I've never met the guy.
Be extra careful not to tell Barawa I suggested that okay?
If you do, he might just try to catch Santa!

Sarya: Happy holidays... (Captain), I've uncovered a frightful mystery.
Look! It's a gift from Detective Barawa! A plushie named Mr. Fluffles!
While it might look adorable at first, observe what happens when I push his tummy...
Mr. Fluffles: Gack!
Sarya: Eek! L-look at his face! Disturbing, isn't it?
Why... Why in the skies would a toy maker want to have a toy do this...
And what in the world was the detective thinking when he got this for me! This should be a crime!
Oh, do you want to try squeezing Mr. Fluffles's tummy? Be my guest.
Mr. Fluffles: Gack!
Sarya: Eek!

Isn't the holy night such a mysterious thing? Just saying it out loud makes me feel all giddy inside.
It has such a gentle, peaceful ring to it... that it feels romantic in a way.
When I asked Siero, she said it's because this is the season for Santa to make his appearance, and my name kind of sounds like his.
I know that's a bit of a stretch—okay, a really big stretch—but oddly enough I was convinced!
Just the thought that people all over might be saying my name indirectly feels strange yet nice.
Detective Barawa saying my name gives me a jolt of optimism, and you saying my name makes me feel relaxed.
So feel free to call out my name more often, (Captain)—any time you want.

Oh, it's (Captain)! Happy holidays! I wasn't expecting to see you here!
It's very cold, so I thought everyone would stay inside. I've been waiting her for awhile though.
Why? Well every year on this holy night, snow falls and covers the ground. But it hasn't started snowing yet, right?
I decided to watch the skies. It still looks awfully clear though.
Look for yourself. I guess the starry skies are just as romantic as fluffy white clouds!
Oh, that's right! I saw a shooting star a moment ago! Probably thanks to how clear it is.
Look! Look! There goes another one!
Wow! And another—there's so many!
Hurry, let's make a wish before they're all gone!
If you wish hard enough, I bet Santa will come grant it for you!

Hmm... So there's a holiday party tonight. A chance to gather around the dining table with new faces for mirth and merriment.
But why is it only held on the longest night of the season?
Surely such a gathering like this isn't all that uncommon?
You're saying that you mortals consider it to be more exceptional if it's limited to just a single day of the year?
I see. I shall remember that.
Well, I don't care what day it's held on as long as the festivities are interesting.

A holiday banquet from the most skillful cooks on board... you've certainly gone all out.
The flavor might be impressive, but first and foremost the dishes look great. This is very much a feast for the eyes.
The presentation is meant to make the food look more appetizing, but that isn't all.
It's also way to show thanks to the living beings who gave themselves for this meal. It's a way of showing the joy of breaking bread with companions...
And of course it's a thoughtful gesture toward everyone gathered around the table.
One could call it proof that you're grateful to the ancient bloodline that devised the culinary arts, and you've refined them even further.
How interesting this all is.
We can't let the food get cold now. (Captain), it's an honor to take part in this feast with you.

I see... So that is Santa Claus. A being that appears in the night and bestows gifts upon mortal children...
But were his origins in small miracles that grew to attain the stature of legend? Or are they to be found in a legend that gave birth to miracles?
In any case, he likely lives not by the laws that govern mortals, though his form may be different from that of the true dragons.
To one such as I, the life of a mortal is short. The childhood of such mortals is even more fleeting; it flits by quicker than even the blink of an eye.
However, your fragility is such that you may crumble to dust, even as that eye is yet blinking.
And perhaps... That is why Santa Claus hoped to impart something unto your kind. His reasons are, I suppose, not incomprehensible to me.
It seems that, apart from primal beasts, there are many beings which grace these skies and yet live free from the constraints of mortality—many more than I had thought.
There may yet be others, aside from Santa Claus, who have watched over you from when you were but a child, (Captain).

Happy holidays! I get so excited seeing all the gorgeous decorations.
You know, my grandfather told me he once met Santa Claus. I wonder if it's true...

(Captain), a moment of your time if I may.
Well, thank you.
About tonight's special holiday banquet everyone's been waiting for...
Would it be all right if I provided some entertainment? I've prepared a repertoire of holiday songs.
I can? Thank you! I'm going to put on my best performance yet.
The banquet's finally here. Nothing would bring me more joy than to help make wonderful new memories.
Heehee. I bet the food will be delicious, but please don't forget about my concert, (Captain)!

Hey, (Captain). Happy holidays!
I was just in the middle of tuning.
That's right. I'll be performing again for this year's holiday banquet.
But unlike last year, this year I went the extra mile and helped with preparing the feast.
You've always got to keep challenging yourself. It's a surefire way to get on Santa Claus's good—
Ah!
Er, you didn't hear that. Okay? Nothing at all...
A-anyway, I hope you look forward to hearing my performance at the banquet!

Ah, happy holidays, (Captain).
What's wrong? You seem a bit fidgety.
The get-together dinner? Yes, I'm thinking of performing this year as well.
Let me guess... You were looking forward to it it? Ah, that makes me so happy...
Haha, I'm going to express the joy I feel right now through my music later tonight.
I hope you'll like it, (Captain).

Oh? Look, (Captain)! It's snowing! I suppose we'll be having a holy night filled with white.
This reminds me of a story my grandpa used to tell me.
If you see dancers in the snow on a holy night, it's a sign that you'll meet someone who will change your life.
Supposedly the dancers in the snow are breathtakingly beautiful, and I used to wish every year that it would snow so I could see one.
Hehe, I never did end up spotting a single dancer in all those years. But I'm lucky enough that I've had two life-changing encounters without them!
The first was my grandpa coming to live with me after my parents passed away.
The second, of course, was meeting you and the rest of the crew!

Happy holidays! I get so excited seeing all the gorgeous decorations.
You know, my grandfather told me he once met Santa Claus. I wonder if it's true...

(Captain), a moment of your time if I may. Thank you.
About tonight's special holiday banquet everyone's been waiting for...
Would it be all right if I provided some entertainment? I've prepared a repertoire of holiday songs.
I can? Thank you! I'm going put on my best performance yet.
The banquet's finally here. Nothing would bring me more joy than to help make wonderful new memories.
Heehee. I bet the food will be delicious, but please don't count out my concert, (Captain)!

Hey, (Captain). Happy holidays!
I was just in the middle of tuning.
That's right. I'll be performing again for this year's holiday banquet.
But unlike last year, this year I went the extra mile and helped with preparing the feast.
You've always got to keep challenging yourself. It's a surefire way to get on Santa Claus's good—
Ah!
Er, you didn't hear that. Okay? Nothing at all...
A-anyway, I hope you look forward to hearing my performance at the banquet!

Hey, Captain! Um, happy holidays? I've seen it in a picture book!
Yeah! It's a holiday where, if you're good, Stanley Claus will let you ride in his sled, right?
Wrong? Well, anyway, this is my first winter so I'm going to do my best!
Umm... What am I supposed to do, exactly?

Happy holidays!
I decided to be Santa this year. I have a present for you too, (Captain)...
Ah! Oh no... That was supposed to be a secret...
Um... (Captain), make sure you go to sleep early tonight!

Nya-di-da!
Ah, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
Did you hear that just now?
Clarisse and Ladiva were teaching me this holiday tune...
It's still kind of embarrassing for me...
But it's a really fun little melody though. You ought to sing it with me sometime.
Ehehe.

Zzz... Zzz...
Sen slumbers at the very tip of a decorated tree, keeping her balance through some kind of cat witchery.
Mmh... Is that you, (Captain)?
Sen descends from the tree in a single leap, rubbing the sleep from her eyes.
Yawn... I fell asleep...
Um... I wanted to put the star on top of the tree, so I climbed up.
But the lights from town were so pretty, I got lost in them, and before I knew it...
What? Oh. I'm still holding on to the star. Guess I forgot to set it on top...
You wanna climb back up with me? The way the view glitters—it's breathtaking!

Happy holidays!
This is finally going to be the year we get the Eternals together for a party. I can feel it!
Wonder if they'll show up, though...

Oh, hello, (Captain)! Perfect timing. You wouldn't happen to be... free this evening?
You are, are you? Gotcha, gotcha. Care to spend this most splendid evening with me then, my dearest (Captain)?
Oh, don't ask why. You want it spelled out for you?
It's a secret, I'm afraid! Let's just say that sometimes a leader like myself wants an excuse to show off.
Heheh... Some other night then. I trust you'll be ready?

Even I have fond memories of this holy night. For example, I used to ride with Santa in his red sleigh and we would travel the world.
What? You don't believe me? My memories are not lies. I even remember how fluffy the reindeer were.
Proof? Why would you ask for something like that? These are my childhood memories!
A-all right. If you must have proof, I guess I could show you some. Oh! But wait! All the proof's at home.
What? We could write a letter to Santa? Haha. You're a clever one.
All right. You write the letter and then give it to me. Then I'll go get a reply.
Why? Because Santa is my friend. We meet every single year.
Enough with the details. Go to it. I'll be sure to get a response from him. (Hmm... Now what should I write in the response letter to (Captain).)

(Captain)! Feast your eyes on this tree! I cut it down in the woods and decorated it all myself!
Well? Pretty gorgeous, right? Man... Brings me back to the days when I was known as the timber wunderkind!
With my unparalleled sword accuracy and technique, I mastered the art of carving trees. Did you know?
Something about your face tells me that you don't believe me now, do you?
(Aww... I actually did though.)
Huh? You don't believe me, but it's fine since the tree looks nice?
Hahaha! I see, I see! Welp, it's fine if you've taken a liking to it, I guess!

Why hello, (Captain)! Welcome to the Eternals' winter party!
I'm impressed how on time you are—that's what I like about you. You should be proud of yourself.
Huh? Are there any other guests? O-of course there are! It's an Eternals' party, after all!
Well... They all seemed to have other plans and are going to be a little late though.
Oh, look! It's already time! Why don't the two of us get started first? Yeah, let's do that!
I went out and found a whole bunch of rare delicacies! See!
This is a dish made by broiling the meat of a legendary 24-karat fowl born from a golden egg... And here's some fruit I picked on a certain long-forgotten island...
Hey, you aren't listening at all, are you! You're standing there looking like you're ready to dig in!
(That's strange... I really did do my best to find all sorts of rare cuisine... Could it be that (Captain) doesn't believe me?)

Seasons greetings.
Santa had better be careful when he comes to Karm this year.
No, I'm not bitter he didn't bring me any presents. Absolutely not...

So you decided to visit me on this holiday eve...
Humph... You really are needy, aren't you?
Unfortunately, I'm not particularly interested in celebrating the season.
I never was much for holiday celebrations, you see...

You don't learn, do you?
I've already told you I want no part in the festivities of this night.
Everyone is waiting for you. Go to your friends...
Ugh... Stop making that face. I don't care if you consider me a friend as well...

The snow fluttering down this holiday night... It glitters so brightly in the darkness...
Snicker... It's not so bad to relish the bleakness beneath a frigid sky.
...
Hm... Oh, it's you, (Captain). Need something from me?
N-no... I'm not feeling lonely! I was just giving myself over to the bleakness.
And I've told you I don't want any part in the festivities.
...
What is it? Don't you want to be with everyone else?
Heh heh... Ah, so you've been entranced by the snow.

(Captain), what's the matter?
I told you... I'm going to spend the holy night outside watching the snow.
You should go back inside. Everyone will be worried.
Hey, cut it out! Don't pull my mask like that! Just because you want me to come with you...
Don't you think you've been getting more and more pushy with me lately?
Okay, okay!
Damn it... Fine, I'm just going to be in the corner, you got that!

Happy holidays!
My homeland of Irestill also gets rather lively around this time of year.
However, I haven't celebrated with friends like this since my father, the king, was in good health.
But very well. If we must celebrate, we should do it right. I don't do things halfway after all.

When my father was still alive, on a snowy night just like tonight, I walked the streets of the town with Heles and Naoise.
The holiday lights provided ample warmth on that frigid eve.
That alone made it a night I would never be able to forget...

It's quite lively aboard the Grandcypher today. That can only mean that the winter holiday has finally come.
Even so you shouldn't get too worked up tonight. You wouldn't want to doze off too early.
Heh... The children wait for Santa Claus with unbridled anticipation.
Me? Oh, I can't seem to remember how old I was when I outgrew it...

It appears many islands use fir trees to celebrate the occasion. I find it surprising.
Because we only ever used evergreen trees in Alster.
Why, you ask? We have many theories about it on the island, but...
When we prepare for winter during the autumn, we stockpile a great reserve of arrows. And to make these arrows, we use evergreen wood.
My ancestors always believed those trees to be responsible for our ability to survive the harsh winters.
Which is why we decorated the evergreen trees to show our thanks. Intriguing, don't you think?
But enough talk. Our holiday feast of the year is about to begin.
I'll escort you to the mess hall. If you'll give me your hand, (Captain).

Happy holidays, (Captain). I’m glad to see you bustling about with preparations and enjoying the festivities.
As for your letter to Santa Claus, I hope it arrives safely.
Oh, you didn’t write one? A shame, really. It’s the perfect chance for children to indulge in their selfish wishes.
Heh... Haha! Seeing your cheefs puffed out like that hardly convinces me you aren’t a small child.
Yes, yes, I know. It was merely a joke, (Captain). An experienced skyfarer like yourself could hardly be considered a small child.
So please, allow me, not Santa Claus, to show you my appreciation.
What would you like as a present? Shall we tour around town before the stores close up for the night?

Happy holidays, (Captain).
Haha. Can't wait, you say?
Well, don't think about sneaking a bite. I've put my very soul into this spread.
Savor the festive flavor of the Lumiel Gourmand!
Haha. I'm always watching, so remember what I said about snacking...
Is what I would normally suggest, but I can overlook one missing piece. Haha.

It's that time of the year again, isn't it, (Captain)?
What's that smile on your face? Oh dear, you've caught me at a funny time.
You know, some children have mistaken me for Santa Claus and asked for presents.
I wasn't able to give them everything they wanted, but I did get a chance to present them with my cake.
They were so happy... Heh heh... Just thinking about them brings a smile to my face as well.
(Captain), would you like a piece?
Seeing you smile is all the present I need to be content this year.

Why, (Captain). Happy holidays.
Looks like we're in for a chilly night. Take care to cover up your stomach when you turn in.
Hohoho. Am I treating you too much like a child?
Ah, but to me, you are still very young.
And worrying needlessly over young folk like you is one of the small joys left in life to an old bloke like me.
Thank you kindly for bearing with my little jest. I hope you have a capital evening.

Oh, are the holidays here already? I never really used to celebrate them so I forget when they are.
Most people are gathering around friends and family right about now, aren't they?
Haha. But we don't have to do that, right (Captain)? Huh? You want to do that?
All right, then, all right. Let's spend the holidays together!

Hmm? Oh, (Captain)! The guys in the kitchen just asked me to grab some ingredients from the pantry.
Haha. Have you seen the kitchen? There's so much majestic food in there, it'll barely all fit on the table!
And they look like they aren't even done cooking yet. Skies be darned...
Anyway, they look like they're having a great time, so it's all good in my eyes!
At times like this, it's fun to get yourself wrapped up in all the energy.
... Oh, sorry. I was just thinking about my sister. But this is no time for distractions!

Today's a special day, isn't it? All of the crew members seem filled with joy.
Bringing all of these people with different backgrounds together—(Captain), you have the character of a saint.
Ah-hah-hah! You don't have to be so modest! Celebrate your good points.
But you're already doing enough for everyone. Take care not to overburden yourself. Let us eat at tonight's feast like we've never eaten before!
