It's the most wonderful time of the year!

On Thursday, September 6th, while my social media feed was exploding with joy regarding a cryptic photo posted by Oakland’s American Steel which featured their logo along with “December 2018,” The Lawrence ArmsBrendan Kelly released his own pseudo-cryptic statement:
