Everyone here at The Winchester Family Business wishes you all a very Merry Christmas! It’s been quite a year here for us, and I’m hoping the same is true on your end as well. Hopefully your day will be filled with joy, family and/or friends, and just an appreciation for the simpler things in life. Or maybe you’re too busy duking it out on the Wii. That works too.
Jasminka has prepared for all of us today her own version of Christmas classics modified for our Supernatural world. Plenty of pictures too, just in case you just need a case of the pretty. Enjoy!
Supernatural Christmas Songs
“Tis the time to be jolly, oh really? Everyone of us knows our favourite show’s approach to Christmas and the happy pagan god killing that took place a while back. There is no such thing as a conventional Supernatural celebration of Christmas. It can be rather sick, really, you know being tortured in a kitchen full of Christmas cookies and biscuits, killing the baddies with branches of a Christmas tree.” What a lovely idea altogether.
So, for my Christmas gift to you, kind readers, this year I will give you poetry of a special kind – take a dash of fond appreciation for our show, mix it with giggles, laughter and tears of joy, don’t forget child-like wonder and some very dark humour to add to the cocktail. Stir it up with tantalizing ideas and very sick pictures. Wrap it all in classic music and lyrics slightly not from this world.
I apologize in advance to all the wonderful lyricists who made some of our beloved Christmas songs such heartfelt pieces as I took the liberty of changing their words according to our show and give you some songs of a different kind. Please feel free to sing the new lyrics to the classic music and have fun. (Just imagine the music in your head, it will be some guilty pleasure”)
I owe my deepest thanks to Julie, my partner in crime with this effort, who gave me inspiration when I was stuck, helped me find some of those pics I had somewhat lost and who composed various lines for our new versions of Jingle Bells, The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Without her ever encouraging voice this article probably would never have been finished in time.
So, Julie, this is dedicated to you. Thank you so much, dear.
The Christmas Song
(from, well, The Christmas Song)
Dry Bones roasting on an open fire
Zombies nipping at your nose
Off-key carols being sung by brothers
Who sometimes dress up like Eskimos
Every hunter knows, some iron works against your foe,
Helping make your smile so bright,
Well-killed ghosts and demons aglow
Won’t be sleeping well tonight
They know that Dean and Sammy won’t delay,
They have lots of guns and goodies on display
And every demon’s child who tries to spy
Will find it hard meeting them not to die
And so I’m offering this simple praise
To brothers cute, loved and a view,
Because of them you’ll be fine, smiles ablaze,
With a ghost-free Christmas, who knew?
