Identyfikator podmiotu: SCP-784

Klasa podmiotu: Euclid

Specjalne Czynności Przechowawcze: SCP-784 został zakamuflowany jako zamknięte osiedle i jest otoczony wysokim na 3,5 metra, grubym na 0,8 metra betonowym murem aby zapobiec wtargnięciom. Do szczytu muru przymocowany jest stalowy kabel pod napięciem, a brama jest zamknięta. Jeśli ktokolwiek spoza personelu Fundacji spróbuje wejść na teren SCP-784, nie należy mu przeszkadzać, aby nie prowokować potencjalnej agresywnej reakcji ze strony mieszkańców SCP-784. Cywile opuszczający SCP-784 mają zostać przechwyceni, przesłuchani i wypuszczeni po potraktowaniu środkiem amnezyjnym Klasy B. Personel Fundacji wchodzący na teren SCP-784 ma być ubrany w tradycyjne ubrania świąteczne.

Obszar SCP-784 jest monitorowany poprzez kontrolowany przez Fundację balon pogodowy. Gdy zajdzie potrzeba wejścia na teren SCP-784, cały zaangażowany personel musi znać na pamięć zawartość "Początkującego Poradnika do Kolęd Świątecznych" autorstwa A██ P███████. Należy sprawdzić ich znajomość przed wejściem na teren obiektu. Ze względu na małą odległość od pobliskich domostw (??), a także okoliczności (??) potrzebnych do sprowokowania SCP-784-1, patrole w SCP-784 mają być nieuzbrojone, z wyjątkiem wydarzenia Noel. W razie nieprzewidzianego wydarzenia Noel, członkowie SCP-748-1 muszą zostać unieruchomieni tak bezboleśnie, jak jest to możliwe, podczas gdy personel Fundacji przygotuje Procedurę 748-C.

Opis: SCP-784 jest dzielnicą w mieście ████, Teksas. Obecnie SCP-784 składa się z dwudziestu czterech domów oraz dwóch apartamentów, przy czym wszystkie udekorowane są lampkami świątecznymi marki ██████ o gęstości ok. piętnastu świateł na metr kwadratowy powierzchni domu. SCP-784 jest zawsze pokryty warstwą śniegu grubą od 12 do 33 centymetrów, mimo iż nie występują żadne odbiegające od pory roku warunki pogodowe.

All houses within SCP-784 are occupied by a variable number of instances of SCP-784-1. SCP-784-1 is composed mostly of adult humans, all of whom wear sweaters typically associated with holiday gift giving. The number of unique instances of SCP-784-1 within SCP-784 has been estimated at three hundred. Instances of SCP-784-1 have not been observed engaging in reproductive activity, and no instances of SCP-784-1 have ever observably been born within SCP-784. Instances of SCP-784-1 appear to age normally, though the death of an instance of SCP-784-1 has never been observed by Foundation personnel.

All instances of SCP-784-1 express traits commonly associated with 'Christmas spirit' throughout the year. These traits include singing of Christmas carols, performance of plays commonly associated with the birth of Christ, and various eggnog-related festivities. These activities are engaged in daily, though specific activities will never repeat more than once per week.

During daylight hours, instances of SCP-784-1 will engage in activities such as gift exchanges and home decoration. Post-sunset activities include decorating of foreign objects as well as vandalism, which is typically holiday-themed. A Foundation supply convoy refueling overnight near SCP-784 attracted an unprecedented response from SCP-784-1, which proceeded to:

  • Egg several in-transit prefabricated buildings.
  • Convert a Humvee into a sleigh.
  • Replace a shipment of fragmentation grenades with similar-appearing glass ornaments.
  • Fill the gas tank of several vehicles with █████-brand eggnog.
  • Weld steel antlers onto one hundred and fifty-six safety helmets.

Any living creature within SCP-784 not viewed as displaying adequate 'Christmas spirit' will become the focus of all instances of SCP-784-1 within approximately four meters. In the case of an animal, instances of SCP-784-1 will be called from the nearest house and place a holiday-themed accessory on the focus. Observed decorations have included:

  • Fifteen collars, red with a small bell.
  • Seven reindeer antlers.
  • Five red 'Santa' hats.
  • One full-body reindeer holiday outfit.

Human subjects who do not meet SCP-784's criteria for 'Christmas spirit' will be assaulted by SCP-784-1, incapacitated, and forcibly directed into the nearest household. They will not be seen until the following day, when they will exit the household dressed similarly to other instances of SCP-784-1. Attempts to retrieve affected personnel have been met with great resistance on both the part of SCP-784-1 and the affected individual.

The criteria which SCP-784 follows for definition of 'Christmas spirit' appear to be extremely broad. See addendum 784-A for a complete log of personnel abducted, and assumed reasons for abduction.

Part of SCP-784 immediately prior to a Noel event

Approximately once per month, SCP-784-1 will attempt to exit SCP-784 and enter the surrounding suburban community; this is referred to by on-site personnel as a 'Noel event'. During a Noel event, each instance of SCP-784-1 will carry a string of Christmas lights estimated to be fifteen meters long. Instances of SCP-784-1 will attach these lights to any nearby house, which will become decoratively and functionally identical to all other houses within SCP-784. Signs of an incoming Noel event include increased festivity during the day preceding the event, excessive eggnog consumption by a significant portion of SCP-784-1, and an increase in the number of decorations present within SCP-784.

Procedure 784-C is to be executed prior to the occurrence of a Noel event. Foundation personnel are to dress themselves in traditional 'Santa' outfits, and distribute themselves near the exit of SCP-784. They are to begin singing 'Good King Wenceslas' and distributing non-alcoholic eggnog to other personnel. On the arrival of SCP-784-1, personnel are to distribute eggnog mixed with a mild sedative to the crowd. Personnel are to appear friendly and cheerful at all times, as SCP-784-1 has proven capable of abducting personnel while nearly unconscious.

Following the distribution of eggnog, personnel are encouraged to sing carols associated with peace and goodwill. 'Silent Night' has proven most effective. Instances of SCP-784-1 will begin to sing along, and personnel are to accept their choice of song. SCP-784-1 will begin to fall unconscious as the night progresses. Unconscious instances of SCP-784-1 will be removed to nearby houses by other instances, and personnel are not to interfere with this process. Any interference with the actions of SCP-784-1 may trigger a violent response, and will wake all instances of SCP-784-1.

Instances of SCP-784-1 not affected by procedure 784-C are to be silently incapacitated when no longer visible from the gates of the community, and returned after all other instances of SCP-784-1 have re-entered SCP-784.

In the event that procedure 784-C fails, Foundation personnel are to release an aerosolized sleeping gas. Foundation personnel are to restrain instances of SCP-784-1 until the gas takes effect, at which time all instances are to be returned to SCP-784. Standard cover story 139 ("Drunken Football") is to be used to respond to any concerns expressed by nearby residents.

Addendum:

Addendum 784-A
Action taken by personnel Action taken by SCP-784-1
Agent Paulsen, on patrol within SCP-784, wished a nearby instance of SCP-784-1 "Happy holidays". Approximately eight instances of SCP-784-1 surrounded Paulsen, who was unable to escape. Paulsen was dragged into a nearby home.
Agent Matthews sang the incorrect verse of 'Silent Night' while on night patrol within SCP-784. Multiple instances of SCP-784-1 incapacitated Matthews non-violently using a nearby string of decorative lights. Attempted intervention by Agent Sanderson led to the involvement of a large crowd of SCP-784-1, which overwhelmed both agents. Matthews and Sanderson were dragged into a nearby home, after which personnel reported hearing the sound of Christmas carols from within the home for several days.
Agent Anderson collided with a lawn ornament, apparently a 'Santa' in the style of the traditional lawn gnome. Anderson proceeded to swear violently for the next fourteen seconds. Three nearby instances of SCP-784-1 held Anderson in place. A fourth emerged from a nearby home with a quart of eggnog, which Anderson was forced to ingest. Anderson collapsed and was dragged into the home from which the eggnog was retrieved.
Agent Davids was presented with a gift by a child instance of SCP-784-1. Davids accepted the gift, but apparently failed to react with proper enthusiasm. Davids was incapacitated by a child instance of SCP-784-1 which tackled his legs. Several children emerged from a nearby home before Davids recovered, and then dragged Davids into the home which they had exited.
