Recovered photo of an SCP-XXXX broadcast.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: Living subjects affected by SCP-XXXX manifestations are to be administered Class-A Amnestics.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a television broadcast of a lit wood-burning fireplace accompanied by instrumental Christmas music. SCP-XXXX is accessible via the use of a television between 12:00 PM and 11:59 PM, December 24th local time. SCP-XXXX can be accessed by an individual (henceforth referred to as the subject) rapidly changing between television channels until SCP-XXXX manifests. SCP-XXXX will not manifest if the subject does not celebrate Christmas, and if the subject is not alone.

Attempts to change channels after SCP-XXXX's appearance will fail. If SCP-XXXX remains on the television unimpeded until 12:00 PM, December 25th, the broadcast will end with an elderly female narrator stating "Merry Christmas," and then fading to black, returning to the proper channel.

If the subject disables SCP-XXXX through other methods, the sounds of instrumental Christmas music and a burning wood fire will still persist. Details relating to the progression of this are varying and sparse, however, all events end with the subject eventually disappearing by 12:00 PM, December 25th.

Addendum: On 12/24/2019, Benedict Sloes posted to the forum of GoI-1109 ("Parawatch Wiki") under the username "funny_words", detailing how they would attempt to manifest SCP-XXXX on their television. After this initial post, Sloes documented their experiences after the manifestation of SCP-XXXX, and later, after they unplug their television.

Sloes' camper van and phone were later found abandoned on a highway in Northern Texas, Sloes himself remains missing.

The following is a collection of information recovered from Sloes' phone and the accompanying Parawatch thread, and is the most complete account of an SCP-XXXX manifestation during which SCP-XXXX was disabled.
