Writer's Notes On "Days Of Auld Lang Smurf"

A New Year's Eve Smurf story

I'm not sure if Peyo or the studio that currently follows in his footsteps have ever created a Smurf story that was centered around the theme of New Year's Eve, but if they haven't, or if nobody else did, then this fanfiction story would certainly be the first.  Anyway, the idea of having Papa Smurf's fellow Smurfs -- the parents of most of his "little Smurfs" in the EMPATH stories -- return in a somewhat illusory manner during the time around New Year's Eve was one I certainly thought of writing.  The original title of this story was going to be something like "Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forsmurfed".  This story includes some backstory into the fanfiction character Tapper, which features elements from the time-traveling cartoon episode story "Shamrock Smurfs".
