Xmas Canon

Our video pick for the Christmas season is a YouTuber's mix of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Canon Rock and visuals from the Finnish movie Joulutarina.

In the movie, Santa Claus is depicted as a boy, Nikolas, who was bought up by a village and thus regarded all the children in the village as his brothers and sisters. Each Christmas, he carves a toy for each child, and leaves it incognito at their doorstep. Over the years, even as the village grew and the children have their own families, Nikolas steadfastly maintains his practice.

Calendata will be taking an end-of-year break and shall return shortly. Wishing readers (an early) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
