It appears that our own Mr. Handbersome, being an Arctic Monster and all, has done some time in Greenland and knows all about the Greenlandic double-New-Year tradition that Gizmo was so excited about. In fact, being a circumpolar animal who lives at the top of the world, Mr. Handbersome has learned many shortcuts for jumping timezones quickly and so enjoys celebrating the New Year as many times as possible by deftly maneuvering across the North Pole and chasing midnight, often competing against friends and lemmings.
And so it was that Gizmo must have been able to persuade Mr. Handbersome to join him for an extra night of New Year celebration and debauchery, which mostly consisted of the two fighting for habitat, chasing each other, hiding from each other, murdering ducks, and refusing to share any of those ducks with each other. Still, it was a celebration. Of sorts.
Lucky for Handbersome, he is an Owl, so is nocturnal (don’t believe the myth that Snow Owls are diurnal, it is a crazy make-em-up) and stumbled home to sleep for the day. But poor Gizmo had to go straight to work. Luckily, Gizmo is an expert napper.
