introduction

i wanted to get this out in The First Week of December, & i wanted this to have all my own artwork in it, but i already realized a few years ago that i’m a terrible artist ( ! ) It’s gotten so that i dread picking up a pencil to make a shopping list. i hate making marks on paper now. So i ended up stealing a bunch of images from Wikipedia & The Fortean Times; Which is The only magazine i read from cover to cover. Although The Fortean Times is all about Quixotic Phenomena, It treats all it’s News Stories very Benignly & Doesn’t Sensationalize Anything. Like Charles Fort; It simply presents All its found accounts as they were found, from real news papers around The World, that really experienced these things, Even if All of The Principle Characters were Preliterate Hunter Gatherers. That is What Z-Mass is All About : How Weird is The World, & What is The Best Way to Celebrate The Incongruities of FreeWill with The Experience of A Box of Kittens ( ? ) One School of thought that was adhered to by The Puritans & Others; Was that Any Special Celebration Day for Christmas was Very Bad, As they knew that These Traditions were Developing out of pagan Rituals, Not The Least of which was The Commercialization of Christ’s Birth. From this School of thought; Every Day was Christ’s Day, Each day is given to gawd ( The Will of Gravity ), No Special Days are Needed. In this Particular Chronology of Z-Mass; All Dates & Celebrations are Relative & Merely Suggestions of when Particular Venerations be Abided By, As they are Fixed to The Winter Solstice which Varies from Year to Year. It is Also Necessary to Determine, or Discover The Precise Time of The Solstice; Which Marks Precise Moment of The True New Year. For The Winter Solstice TwoThouand & Thirteen : True Midnight will be on The Twentyfirst; Nine Eleven Ante Meridiem This is The Moment of Z-Mass.


Gatherings The Secret of A Successful Gathering is To Have Plenty of Prepared Activities. Don’t allow your Guests to just Sit around & Expect Unconditional Love to Come Pouring Out like Egg Nog from A Drunken Uncle’s Mork & Mindy Lunch Pail.

Things to Do :

Clean out a Closet or Attic— You’re sure to find lots of Interesting things besides The Scurvy Raccoon or Boxes of Maggot Nurseries. Built a Snow Something, Anything But a Snowmyn. Conjure up Elaborate & Gruesome Forgotten Traditions that Your Negligent Grandparents Never Taught you. · ·· ·· ·· ·· ·

The Choosing of The Cookies An Old Hag, Witch or School Marm would bake horrible tasting Cookies which would be offered to all the children. Those that politely ate the cookies, and lived would be given great favor by the community. Those that spit out the cookies and Cursed the woman, would be severely beaten or sold to gypsies. · ·· ·· ·· ·· · Combine Two or More Board Games into One Board Game, Change all The Rules Around & Make up your own Fate Cards. Make Up some New Jump Rope Rhymes & Be sure to Include plenty of Double Entendres. / Sing Holiday Tunes to Popular Melodies of The 80s. / Bake Elaborately Decorated Cookies or GingerBread Yule Goats. / Build something really Big from Legos. Wander around The Neighborhood, Cutting between houses & peeking through Windows. If you’re Caught, Make sure Everyone will Run in a Different Direction ! Make a Deck of Family Tarot Cards.

17 — Busójárás — The Busójárás (Hungarian, meaning "Busó-walking") Is an annual celebration held at the end of the Carnival season ("Farsang"). The celebration features Busós (people wearing masks) And includes folk music, masquerading, parades and dancing. Busójárás Traditionally lasts six days, Overlapping other Feast Days. It starts on a Thursday with a Full Moon Or A Wednesday After a Big Family Argument. According to the more popular legend, during the Turkish occupation of the territory the people of Mohács fled the town, and lived in The nearby swamps and woods to avoid Ottoman (Turkish) troops. One night, while they were sitting and talking around the fire, An old Šokci man appeared suddenly from nowhere, and said to them; "Don't be afraid: your lives will soon turn to good, and you'll return to your homes. Against that time, prepare for the battle— Carve various weapons and Scary masks for yourselves, and wait for a stormy night when a masked knight will come to you." He disappeared as suddenly as he had come. The refugees followed his orders, and some days later, on a stormy night, the knight arrived. He ordered them to put on their masks and go back to Mohács, Making as much noise as possible. They followed his lead. The Turks were so frightened by the noise, the masks, And the storm in the night, that they thought demons were Attacking them; and they ran away from the town before sunrise. In the older, less popular story, The busós are scaring away not the Turks but Winter itself. ---------[ Ordinary Time Resumes ]


Jeremiah 10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of The heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; For the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of The people are vain: For one cutteth a tree out of the forest, The work of the hands of the workman, With the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails And with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as The palm tree, but speak not: They must needs be borne, Because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; For they cannot do evil, Neither also is it in them to do good. Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O Lord; thou art great, and thy name is great in might. It’s been suggested that this ‘Process’ of cutting down a Tree with An Axe & ‘The Work of The Hands of The Workman’ Refers to The Making of an Idol, But this Passage seems to go A long way around to avoid The Term Idol or Revealing How or What The Tree was being shaped into ( ? ) Certainly — This passage was written long before The Tradition of Holiday Trees was brought into Popular Usage; But it is Not Specifically about Christmas Trees, It’s an Admonition against Worshiping False Idols that are Made, Carved, Decorated or Presented for Veneration — And if A Christmas Tree isn’t an Idol, Symbolic Totem of Veneration; Which is Specifically Forbidden by The 2nd Commandment; Then— What is going on here.

Z-Mass Guidelines for Presents The 8 Simple Rules for Present Giving

1 Don’t Exchange Gifts ! Do something fun instead, Sing Songs, Play Games, Have Fun in The Snow, Clean Out Closets, Reupholster a Couch or Make Cookies. 2 Buy something Fun for yourself or for someone else When The Two of you are spending a leisurely afternoon together. 3 Never buy something as a Gift that you don’t understand. This includes Music, Mechanical Toys, Cult Items, Popular Trinkets or What The Pundits insist is ‘Hot’ ! 4 While buying an Inferior Version of A Desired Item is Obviously Extremely Bad, Getting a ‘Better’ Item might be equally Disastrous. 5 Never Give Money. 6 Only give gifts to people you’re close to. This may mean excluding many people that you think that you Really should get things for ! Don’t get them anything ! Go & Visit instead & Share some Time with them. 7 Instead of using Disposable Wrapping Paper to Conceal a Gift. Wrap the item in a = Fancy = Dish-Towel, Beach-Towel, or Bath-Room Towel, Baby or Adult Blanket, Pillow Case, T-Shirt, Sweater, Sock, Natural Box or UnExpected or Misleading Container from a Previous Purchase during The Past Year… And then secure with Colored String, Yarn or Cloth Ribbons, Taking care that it may be untied without cutting it, So that it may be added to The Families Ball of Twine which is Brought out on Z-Mass morning and The Children are allowed To add The Strings & Ribbons to it. : appendix b-1 :


8 Presents should always be of The Highest Imaginable Quality. But this doesn’t mean that it has to be expensive ! There are Plenty of very affordable items that are of The Most Splendid Craftmynship. ---

Receiving Guidelines

If you are going to ‘Exchange’ Gifts & Open All of them During a Frantic Period of Hysteria. There are 5 Rules to follow thereafter : 1 If you hate The Present that you’ve just received; Don’t Hesitate to Tell The Gift Giver that that it’s Horrible ! Don’t Encourage them to continue giving Lame or Annoying Presents. If you’re Enabling People to be Bad, Then you are Worse ! 2 It is widely accepted that many gifts are going to be exchanged at The Store where they were purchased by The Gift Giver or Returned for Cash. Why Not Re-Exchange Gifts with The People At your Initial Gifting ‘Ceremony’ ? Find A Loving Home for The Present that you Hate ! 3 Save all The Best Wrapping Paper for Making School Report Covers or Papering Shoe Boxes That will be Hidden in Clever Places; for Personal Secretive Items in The Coming Year. 4 Add all The Ribbon for your Big Ball of Twine that every Family should have. Display it Promently in the Living Room. 5 Share your Presents with Others.
