    @Udog, the first is definitely a Christmas song in my book, and it's my video, so I get to decide. The second is going on my tentatively titled "Alternative Carols List" along with @The Ü™'s lovable atrocity.

    Sounds great! It would be kind of funny to repeat that second song 3 or 4 times, just to see how long it takes people to realize what's going on, and that the song isn't actually 12 minutes long.

    While all of my favorites have been taken, I do enjoy It Came Upon a Midnight Clear. It's just a good, warm song. (Julie Andrew's version is nice too, but has that 50's-60's era instrumentation which isn't for everyone.)

    Heh, I'd edit it. Cut out all of the beginning and just WHAM, hit them with the WTF. It's what Christmas is all about. Giving hard.

    As for the instrumental part, it's funny how people's musical tastes can change at this time of year, and things they normally wouldn't listen to make them smile. Probably the memories working on them of a time when they believed and was full of hope.

    It'll be like 7 year old re-gifted fruitcake, but for the ears. You can't get any more Christmasy than that!

    Oh, to add to the WTF factor, you can't forget Christmas at Hogwarts.

    Yeah, exactly. You also have the winter chill, the smell of chimney smoke, possibly snow, and roaming the neighborhoods checking out the Christmas lights (other people do that, right?) all adding to the experience. Actually, one of my largest pet-peeves with places going full-on Christmas after Halloween is that it dilutes how unique and awesome December used to be.

    Oh also:

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.
