More than a Half Million Lights on One Tree

Australia isn’t to be outdone by anyone in the world when it comes to Christmas. There’s no snow, few natural Christmas trees, and little that actually originates in Australia when it comes to Christmas. But they celebrate it big time and they want the world to know it. From their…


A Lonesome Korean Christmas

This is awesome — and it just shows you the reach that Christmas has around the world. It is the Barberettes performing Lonesome Christmas. This production — from the music to the video — is every bit as great as anything done with Christmas anywhere in the world. It’s just…

The Johnson Family Christmas Lights are pretty famous. They were a hit in San Antonio long before being featured on the Great Christmas Light Fight.

Stevie Wonder and Andra Day Sing Someday at Christmas

Katy Perry’s Forgettable Christmas Song

Some are saying this is the new viral video of Christmas. We cannot imagine why. This video is emblematic of nearly everything wrong with Christmas today.
