Mia Rose – What Would Christmas Be Like?

Mia Rose became famous through cover songs published on her YouTube channel, which she opened during her Christmas break from university in 2006. Meanwhile, the 22 year old has over 250,000 YouTube subscribers, a best selling download from iTunes, and was featured in Rolling Stone, among other popular media.

Carson Williams’ Christmas House

16,000 christmas lights controlled by 88 Light-O-Rama channels light up rhythmically to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s ‘Wizeards in Winter’. Epic! And if you were wondering, yes this is a US production based in Mason, Ohio.

Coldplay – Christmas Lights

Filmed in London on November 25th, this video is Coldplay’s contribution to this year’s holiday season. And if you thought that November 25th was a working day in the UK because “the British people don’t believe in Thanksgiving“, then you’re probably American and definitely wrong. Wikipedia should shed some light.

Bug Bunny’s ‘A Christmas Carol’

Charles Dickens novel ‘A Christmas Carol’ has inspired many films and even opera, ballet, and a Broadway musical. This is a short, child compatible version starring Bugs Bunny and his pals.

Becky Kelley – Where’s the Line to See Jesus

Ever heard of GodTube? It’s not a joke! The video below was plugged from God’s own video hub.

Chrappy Histmas

Based on the poem ‘The Night Before Christmas’, this video shows two guys adding a twist to the famous words. Mind boggling and confusing, but quite entertaining.

    Bob,

    this was a humorous remark based on a) the article through which I found the video and b) own experiences. I had to explain the history of Thanksgiving to quite a few North Americans.

    And apparently you do not get the humor. Someone who wonders why other countries do not celebrate Thanksgiving as a national and important holiday *most likely* is American because it's not an important holiday in most other countries, though I don't know about Liberia. To me that's not an insult, but a very obvious conclusion.

    "then you’re probably American and definitely wrong. Wikipedia should shed some light."
    ...or not.
    If you're going to snipe back at other posters, you should check your own links.
    Light-hearted bantering may fall within what is appropriate for an informative article - as opposed to an opinion piece - but this comes across more as elitist and somewhat insulting.
