That is so out of theme. Much better to have a zombie JRRT appear on Jan 3.

As long as there's no actual game advantage, there's no reason not to include this sort of easter egg. Perhaps make it so that the elves and Father Christmas are direct replacements for ordinary townsfolk and Father Maggot (weakening the elves to be no more dangerous or valuable to kill than townsfolk), so that the total number of uniques available is no higher during Christmas games. And then feel free to add other seasonal specials on the same equitable basis.

LOL, that's what I get for posting crap in the middle of the night. Farmer Maggot, of course.
