We are now witnessing that rare conjunction that occurs only once every seven years where the Weekender and Christmas align to fall on the same day. So, Merry (or Happy) Christmas if you celebrate that kind of thing. Over in the Homicidols Discord Server, we’ve been collecting pics of idols in holiday cosplay so I snagged some of them and threw together a little X Mas e-card for everyone, just like Grandma used to make.
Happy Holidays and Merry Idol X-Mas Everybody!!

O’CHAWANZ has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the Last Live of their current system. If they raise ¥5,000,000 (~$45,000) they will play a dinner show in Vegas, so save that Christmas pocket money from grandma and put it towards bringing O’CHAWANZ to Sin City!!
