The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice

The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice

Last week I attended the Sufjan Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long show (formally known as the “Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice”). It was a cheerful, tacky songfest with inflatable santas, kitschy Christmas decor, and tinsel galore. I loved it.

At one point, dressed as a unicorn and from atop a giant speaker, Sufjan performed a song called “Christmas Unicorn” from his latest Christmastide-y collection. It was at that moment when I thought “Hark! This would make a weird, yet awesome theme party!” And so, away in a manger (Aladdin Theater) on a silent night (your average Wednesday), the Christmas Unicorn theme party was born.

What goes hand-in-hoof with unicorns? Rainbows, of course!

It’s pretty obvious that you (and/or your cat) would need to dress like a unicorn.

“I’m the Christmas Unicorn!”

The box says “Cats love it!” Clearly.

You definitely wouldn’t want your guests to feel left out – sparkly unicorn horn party hats for everyone!

Now that everyone has unicorn horns, show them off in front of this DIY tinsel photobooth backdrop.

Let your inner unicorn shine in front of this tinsel photobooth backdrop.

Legend goes that unicorns have a real sweet tooth. Cupcakescookies, and unicorn lollipops ought to hit the spot.

Behind Sufjan and his costume-clad bandmates, was the “Wheel of Christmas” – a giant spinning wheel that helped select carols for the audience to sing together (see the first picture in this post). Turn your Christmas Unicorn party into a sing-a-long with your very own Wheel of Christmas!

Are you the Christmas Unicorn?

P.S. I realize this theme party makes little sense to someone unfamiliar with Sufjan Stevens or the Christmas Unicorn song, but hopefully you can appreciate tacky/fun/glittery holiday awesomeness regardless!
