To share a slightly different outlook on the Christmas Festival I wrote a short song modeled after Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Christmas_Carol ) but inspired by the earlier Pagan traditions of the Season.
With an eye to current world affairs and the rise of Global Corporatism, I have included a protestors scene, with a call to Occupy Christmas as an opportunity to reconsider what the festival may mean now.
I replaced Dickens' Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future with a mischievous Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws who finally gets his Christmas mission right, after a fashion), and instead of the more usual three visits through time in the life of Ebeneezer Scrooge, my character 'Scourge' is given 3 visions instead, to the Three Realms of Celtic mythology.
With a hope that this film may remind us to think of more than just family gatherings and presents, that it may be a magical time to think with our hearts and consider the wider picture.
To focus upon the whole rather than any portion, to live more meaningful lives,we may honor these the Three Realms and each-other throughout our daily lives.
