We ate food, we folded origami crowns in the dark (and then I used a lot of tape to make up for the folds that my I-can't-see-what-I'm-doing technique did not quite make uniform).
(The torturing of the animals with the crown came later.)
Songs were sung.
Curses were yelled. Goblets were drained. Things were burned. (Lots of fire!)
Bulbs were planted.
And then cake was eaten.
And now the light will return.
