Hark Raving Mad

The latest Christmas meme of “Santa saw your Facebook pictures; you’re getting clothes and a dictionary for Christmas” suggests that nowadays folks may be a little more naughty than nice. Even if you wake up on Christmas morning to find a pack of socks and a thesaurus with a bargain sticker still stuck to its cover, at least it's comforting to know that Christmas festivities with the family only last for a couple of hours.

Once your uncle starts slurring his speech after a few too many glasses of eggnog, it's time to duck out in favor of the annual Mary X Mas party. This winter raverland includes presents for the naughty and nice and a canned food drive to score you a spot on next year's nice list. This all-ages party boasts sets by DJ Swamp, Reverse, CL McSpadden, Sam Groove vs. Spear, and more.
