    Hey Tim, Duane here from Merry Christmas New Zealand (formally NZChristmas). Here’s a version of Winter Wonderland that screened here in New Zealand last year. It’s called Summer Wonderland, featuring Ronan Keating. It changes out out the winter themes with things kiwi (we are called kiwis if you didn’t know) 😆

    Here’s a video of the song.

    Also u liked it so much I did a drum cover, here’s a link to it here. https://youtu.be/KeptG5joaWg

    Cheers for now.
    Happy Leon Day!

    Great episode, Tim, I especially like Leon Day’s official carol! Really enjoy your podcast and look forward to it every month.

    The one recurring theme in most arguments for Die Hard being a Christmas Movie is this; “Its the only Christmas movie I can get my Christmas-hating friends to watch”, and THAT IN ITS SELF should be a HUGE Red Flag right there! It’s the Christmas Movie… for people… who HATE Christmas Movies! Die Hard is to Christmas Movies, as Tofurkey is to Real Meat. And just like Tofurkey, the people who hate meat will keep insisting that it’s really JUST LIKE meat… but we Turkey Lovers know what’s up. Just say NO to Die Hard as a Christmas Movie!
