What is Friday Night Funkin'? Well, it is not your average DDR-esk game, that's for sure! You see, when this game started to make it's rounds around HRless, I got a lot of requests to cover it. So I started researching. Theorists, this game is FULL of lore... and it gets WEIRD! Seriously, you will have to watch to believe it.

    Santa’s head is kinda shaped like a lemon. There’s no detail for ears which is weird because all the other characters have detailed ears. Looking at it closely, if you take out the eyes, cheeks and mouth, you’ll notice that the santa doesn’t actually have ears, more like a lemon shaped head like the lemon demon. Of course, this may be far fetched, but all the other characters have detailed ears (except skid and pump) and it’d seem weird that they wouldn’t give SaNtA ears…
