Trans-Siberian Orchestra - The Ghosts Of Christmas EveOne of the most wonderful Christmas special videos ever made for music. It will warm your heart and make you cry it is that touching and beautiful to watch and listen to. It doesn’t matter if you are Christian, Muslim, Pagan, Jewish, Buddhist, Shinto or whatever – You WILL love this film and want to watch it again and again. I don’t care how much you say you don’t cry at the sentimental stuff you will cry watching this one. It had me in tears within the first 5 minutes of the video.

It is amazing how TSO, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, weaves their music into a story. Anyone who has listened to their album Christmas Eve and Other Stories will know exactly what I mean about a story. The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve uses music from their first 2 Christmas albums and tells a tale about a run away that is down on her luck and has no place to go. She wants to go home but is afraid of what her parents might say or do. She finds an old abandoned theater and crawls into it to get out of the cold. This is where the real story starts to take place.

Inside the theater is a caretaker, the one that looks after the memories and spirits that reside in the place. He sees the child come in out of the cold and can see the pain that is going on inside her. Seeing this he decides to make her life better by showing her what her life could be with a show on the theater stage by TSO. The look of joy and wonder on the teens face is enough to melt the heart of anyone. If this film does not touch you in some way then you just do not know how to live. Once watching this film you will have a new outlook at life and see things in a new way.

TSO outdid themselves with this film and they should make more of them. If you have not yet seen it then I would recommend that you see it soon.
