Have a Cuppa Cheer!

Hellooo everyone! Damon here – It’s been a long month of catching-up post-Red Dirt Film International Film Festival, and after a wonderful Thanksgiving, we’re ready to get back to some things here (as well as beginning a new year of work on Red Dirt!). We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and hope you’ll enjoy these few things that really touched us today:

First off, we have a very-moving story of the true holiday spirit in-action:

And if you’ve never seen these guys play, be ready to be astounded by their heady arrangements of well-worn holiday tunes, whether you celebrate Christmas or not!

O Come, Emmanuel:


In addition to the usual Christmastime traditions, I’ve been learning all-about Hanukkah this year, having purchased a menorah at a local Jewish Community Center. It was fun reading about so much history and tradition, and speaking with the rabbi about it – he was featured on the Oklahoma City paper the next day (Thanksgiving), shown lighting the downtown Feast of Lights candles!

What are your favourite introductions to the season?
