Canadian Christmas

If you've already seen this video, it's worth seeing again. If you haven't, Enjoy!  For all my overseas friends, expats and others, the video is quintessentially Canadian, shot in wintery Winnipeg just a few weeks ago by 16 yo Sean Quigley.  It's his take on the Chrsitmas carol, "The Little Drummer Boy":  

“The whole song is basically a story,” he explained to CBC. “It starts as just this boy who gets word of Jesus being born and he goes to see him and doesn’t have anything to give him. I don’t have money, I don’t have physical items, I don’t have gifts to give you but I can play my drum and that’s more than enough.”
What is so impressive is that Sean played all the parts, sang, arranged and recorded the whole thing. He set up all the video shots and had his sister run the camera, then he edited the video and posted it.  I like it, because it captures a simple joy and youthful exuberance that is contagious. 
I hope we can all catch that bug :) happy .   May your Christmas be filled with Joy, Hope, Peace and Love.  And have a wonderful 2012!
