Discovering a coal-filled stocking isn't always a bad thing!
Meekin eggs are practically the textbook definition of irony. These eggs, which bear an uncanny resemblance to a lump of coal, will mysteriously appear in the stockings of well-behaved children on Christmas Day. As such, a child without a Meekin must have been just a little too naughty that year...
Given their brazen nature, Meekins are no stranger to approaching people (unlike most rodents that inhabit Ark). The more pure-of-heart that someone is, the more likely it is that they will attract Meekins during the wintertime.
A popular children's story recounted during the holiday season is that of "Micha the Christmas Mouse," a tale about a special Meekin who personally helps out Father Christmas himself.
