    It's not Wod related, but I'm working on a novel where I did mix those two legends. Basically, because so many werewolves in my novel's world are born on Christmas (specifically those born to two werewolf parents), the hounds of god don't even bother celebrating birthdays most of the time. The Christmas party is also a communal birthday party for those werewolves born on Christmas.

    It's worth noting that there's also a Baltic legend about mistletoe (that which people kiss under on Christmas) forcing werewolves back into their human form. I'm not sure how one would fit that legend into the World of Darkness lore (maybe mistletoe is antithetical to luna's energies for some reason).

    And finally, there are legends saying that wolves spend saint Nicholas day (December 6) in meditation, and won't attack a human even if provoked.
    In the Wod, I imagine saint Nicholas day would be a day where werewolves's rage leaves them for some reason.

    And according to legend, those born on Christmas would be cursed to become werewolves by god because he was mad that a mortal had the gall to be born on the same day as his son.

    And the wild chirstmas parties that the hounds of god would hold after their battles in Baltic legends... Actually there are a lot of Christmas related werewolf legends now that I think of it.

    Actually... it isn't as far fetched as you might think... One of the sources of Santa Claus is Odin, who DID ride out with a lot of wolves. His two hunting wolves most importantly, and the Valkyries were pictured as one of the following: Riding wolves, riding ravens, riding wolves with raven wings, or simply flying with raven wings.

    So there's a lot of werewolf-friendly symbology in old Yule celebrations.

    Who are those eight Uratha, I wonder?
    We do not speak of the ninth, its senses filled with a bright bloody star of lifelong fraternal torment since its distant childhood.
