Yuletide celebrations and gatherings from another era are revisited in Christmas Past, a compilation of silent shorts with footage dating back as early as 1901. The true spirit of the season is revealed through these nine Christmas-themed shorts, with stories about giving and sharing, festive holiday parties and Santa Claus sightings. The recent addition of an original score by Al Kryszak further enhances the festive mood with familiar tunes like "Deck the Halls" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen." It's a nostalgic trip to simpler times, where just being together as a family was what mattered most.
Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence: Soundtrack from the Original Motion Picture is a soundtrack album for the 1983 film.

AC/DC hits turned into Christmas rock by Santa Claws And The Naughty But Nice Orchestra – instrumentals (jazz/classical/elevator style) with sleigh bells added. Sleigh bells ring and hell's bells toll on this incredible holiday tribute to one of music's most iconic acts. Nothing can quench AC/DC's thirst for cheap thrills, dirty deeds and sweet, sweet candy. Santa may have crossed these naughty boys off his list a long time ago, but that doesn't mean you can't score the world's biggest Christmas ball with this little noel. You will definitely score with these hard rock candy holiday versions of AC/DC's greatest songs.
