|boy, that etymology snake gets around...|
My favorite thing about this? Let's face it, "spree" and "carousal" are about as euphemistic as you can get. In truth, I was inspired by reading about the original bacchanalia, that, as the Dionysian celebrations went from Greece to Rome and adopted the Roman name, they shifted culturally. The were initially exclusive to women, and all kinds of crazy went on. Thus my "safe but creepy" fairy-tale-esque piece here.
