Chicago Based Theater Troupe Puts On A Klingon  Christmas Carol image
Everyone has their Christmas traditions. Some gather around the fireplace with their families, some watch It's A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story on loop for 48 straight hours. If you live in Chicago, though, I have a new tradition that you might want to consider: A Klingon Christmas Carol.

The Wall Street Journal has done a report on a small theater troupe that has decided to put on a production of the classic Charles Dickens tale, with the catch being that the language has been translated to the alien Star Trek language and some of the names and themes have changed to correspond with the race's beliefs and ideals. It's all pretty surreal, but at the same time pretty damn cool. Apparently the production has gone as far as to enlist the help of Marc Okrand, the man who invented the Klingon language.

Check out the video below and if you've ever seen anything even remotely like this, please let us know in the comments section.
