According to Moonalice legend, the naming of this city was the result of a process that has remained a secret until tonight. Here’s the story. The whole town agreed that real estate values would get a boost from associating with everyone’s favorite holiday, Christmas, but beyond that there was disagreement. One group wanted to the name the place Elfville. Another favored Rudolph City. The Moonalice tribe offered their patron saint, Santa Sensimilla. In the end, the town Fathers ignored the Moonalice mothers and went with the traditional Red Santa. The tribe was disappointed, but after a major smokefest they forgot all about it.
According to Moonalice legend, one of the icons of the music industry has moved on to the Happy Hemp Ground. George Fullerton was Leo Fender’s partner. Leo invented the Telecaster and Stratocaster, but George was the guy who figured out how to manufacture them in volume.
According to Moonalice legend, July 9 is Ásatrú: Day of Remembrance for Unn the Deep-Minded. Unn was both an Icelandic queen and a Moonalice matriarch. She married Olaf the White King of Dublin, had a bunch of kids who played huge roles in the History of Iceland and the British Isles. But Unn’s claim to fame is that she introduced hydroponics to Icelandic hemp farming in the Middle Ages . . . and then brought hemp to Scotland.
