Above is your very own holiday yule log fireplace -- one of many posted on YouTube for those without a fireplace or a TV to watch it on a local channel. This one, which comes with its own soundtrack which you can replace with your own music, runs for about six and a half minutes, but you can loop it to keep it going. And if you cannot enlarge it to fit your whole computer screen from above, then just click directly on the YouTube site stream of it and enlarge by clicking in the lower right corner. Peace for the holidays!

I'm not sure what it is about Glam Rock and Christmas but I've always appreciated how many contributions to the Christmas song canon have big drums, fuzzy sax and '50s via the '70s Yuletide vibes.
My vote for the best Glam Rock Christmas song goes, hands down, to Slade with their never-tiresome-no-matter-how-many-times-you-hear-it classic, the misspelling free "Merry Xmas everybody."
Sadly, there's no proper footage of T. Rex's "Christmas bop" but you can just imagine Marc and Gloria Jones frolicking in the... snow.
No doubt eager to cash in on the success of Wizzard and Slade's Christmas successes, the less-inspired but still enjoyable Mud give us this Showaddywaddy-esque version of "Lonely this Christmas."
