The Way-Too-Early Christmas Video

Through the power of Creative Commons, we’re proud to present a new instant classic holiday video for "The Way-Too-Early Christmas Song". Special thanks to Blue Gal for suggesting that a visual version of the tune would be most efficacious.

    Very nice. You got me in that Pre-Halloween Christmas spirit.

    BTW – the list of photos link isn’t working.

    I love the song guys, but I must pose a question to you.

    When is it way-to-early for the way-to-early Christmas song?

    Wow…this song reflects our current times – I saw Christmas paraphernalia as early as (I presume) late September in one store. Ow.

    Oh and this video reminds me of my senior year in HS – I performed with the chorus, where I was an alto, in our fall side-by-side concert, where we high schoolers at Jefferson co-performed with some middle school students. After we’re through with our two songs, Andrea Ramsey’s “Psalm of Hope” and Raymond Wilding-White’s arrangement of “Shall We Gather at the River,” we watched the band play. But the most intriguing things I heard were Michael Story’s arrangement of “Believe” and John Kinyon’s arrangement of the “Russian Bell Carol.” I can readily identify the songs genre-wise because the former is from a Christmas movie (THE POLAR EXPRESS, if you ask me) and they played it in the middle of October!

    But the Christmas creep don’t just apply to retailers, malls, Wal-Marts, supermarkets, radios, and, even recently to me, school concerts; it’s even happening at Walt Disney World, an hour away from my home near Tampa! Take a gander at the webpage of the Magic Kingdom’s seasonal event, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party ( – and the first two of the selected nights for the annual hoopla falls on the day before and on Veteran’s Day! Small wonder the lyrics, “Inside’s a winter wonderland/I’m sorry, I don’t understand/‘cause mistletoe on Veteran’s Day seems wrong,” is sooooooooo true!!!!
