“In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming. Dreaming of belly rubs.”
Jenny Fontana created this awesome illustration of Corgi-thulhu. We should all know better than to try petting one of the Ancient Ones, but this little monster is irresistible. Is that just part of his evil plan or is it the only way to prevent him from destroying us all?
“Straight from the depths of R’lyeh to your breakfast table… enjoy the flavors of the Deep Ones and raise your anxiety with a hearty bowl of CTHULOOPS every morning!”

It was around this time last year that Maika, co-editor of the Geyser of Awesome, created her first Cthulhumas tree using a bunch of our Chtulhu tentacles, blue string lights, silver garland, a plush Cthulhu, and just the right amount of eldritch chanting.
Knowing the Great Old Ones would be expecting a tribute at least as nice as last year’s effort, Maika created a second Cthulhumas tree this year, building on the original design with the addition of more lights, three dozen Finger Tentacles, and some Terrified B-Movie Victims.
Don’t leave small pets or children alone around this tree. Those frightened little figures won’t satisfy it for long.
Merry Cthulhumas one and all. May the Elder Gods continue to sleep soundly.

What better way to celebrate Cthulhumas than with H.P. Lovecraft-themed Christmas carols? Click the YouTube link to listen to “I saw mommy kissing Yog-Sothoth”.
This is just one of over 50 awesome Lovecraftian Solstice Carols cleverly composed by The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.

Why not trim your tree with a theme this year? We’ve got a few suggestions. You can put a Rubber Chicken in a Santa Suit on top and decorate it with Rubber Chicken Ornaments. If you like your holiday a little darker and apocalyptic, why not go with Cthulhu Ornaments. Don’t want people to recognize your tree? Go with the Groucho Glasses Disguise Ornament. Hipster trees require a Mustache Ornament and a few PBR cans. For a tree that will make you drool, use the Bacon Ornaments. The Lucky Yodelling Christmas Pickle Ornament has a built in motion detector that sets off a yodel whenever people walk past. Just imagine if you covered your tree with them! It would be a regular pickle choir. Lastly, if you want your friends and neighbors to question your sanity, why not a whole tree of Fish Head Ornaments?
If you’re proud of your weird Christmas tree, submit it to Geyser of Awesome!
Just in case you were in doubt, here’s a sure sign that Cthulhumas is finally on its way!
Last year Amy Rawson (previously featured here) created wonderful Santa Cthulhu and Mrs. Cthulhu figures. This year Amy and Brian East teamed up again to create this awesome Needle Felted Santa Cthulhu, complete with a fireplace containing a miniature flaming city. Santa Cthulhu is ready to place a slimy eel or fish in your stocking or…. you know, devour your soul:
Yes, he’s back! Brian and I managed to revisit our favorite theme again this year, just in time for the holidays. In 2007, Brian and I made our first needle felted Santa Cthulhu around Christmastime. It was so much fun we had to make another in 2008, and again in 2009. In 2010 I branched away a bit and made an epoxy clay Cthulhu Elf on my lonesome, but it just wasn’t the same. The needle felted ones are much more fun. And it’s always better when Brian and I get to work on a project together!
This is our 4th needle felted Santa Cthulhu. He’s got a fireplace, stockings, a plate of cookies, a dead trout and a live moray eel to leave as stocking stuffers … all needle felted from wool. See the Etsy listing or the page in the Thirdroar gallery for more details, meanwhile I’ll just post a heap of photos here!
We love this Cthulhu Lives shirt by Melita Curphy. From the beautifully detailed suckers on the tentacles (waiting to drain souls the souls of the innocent) to the overwhelming look of malevolence that emanates from its ocular orbs, this is a Cthulhu that will not be messed with. In other words, the perfect item of clothing for all your family events this holiday season!
