It’s been nonstop grief around this household since November 2018, when Mr Metawitches’ mom died at the age of 100 (!!) and the losses have kept coming (yes, we were doing pandemic grief before pandemic grief was cool 😱🤯🐙😜🧛♀️🐉 ). So, the Metawitches are ready for a little comfort and joy this holiday season, despite being virtually locked in again due to compromised immune systems and the latest scifi-ready coronavirus variant. With that, here are some of our favorite recent holiday Youtubes.
Let’s start with a magical Glee reunion from Darren Criss and Adam Lambert:
A peek inside the Avengers’ apartments during the holidays as we hang out by their fireplaces.
I posted these Marvel Fireside Heroes videos back in 2016 (between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War in the MCU timeline) and just came across them as I was looking at old holiday posts. They’re so much fun, I decided to share them with y’all once again, since most of us are on lockdown this holiday season and have been staring at the same screens for months. They are like Yule log videos, but instead we’re sitting in Steve Rogers’ apartment, listening to swing jazz versions of Christmas carols for an hour as we watch his fire, or on the Guardians of the Galaxy’s spaceship watching Baby Groot dance next to the fire.
Each video is filled with tiny details, like the pictures of Bucky, Peggy and his mom that Steve has next to the fire, and his original USO tour shield hung over the mantel. One chair leg is held up by a stack of books, because Steve is still a thrifty Depression era guy at heart. The apartment furnishings look like they could be straight from the forties, just like Steve himself. It’s a lonely looking place, from a lonely time in his life, but we could totally join him and make it better, right?

The a capella group Pentatonix had a Christmas special on NBC last week, but so far I haven’t been able to find the full show posted anywhere. They also released their third Christmas album this year, which they’ve been heavily promoting. So, there are a lot of videos of them making promotional appearances singing Christmas carols, along with the official music videos from the album. That all adds up to too many to post here, but, in lieu of the special, I’m posting some of my favorites. Merry Christmas, Happy Solstice, Happy New Year, Happy Everything!
More under the cut, including a Pentatonix yule log video. (They have a collection, if yule logs are your thing.)
NBC has posted the video of Michael Bublé’s 2016 Christmas special,Michael Bublé Sings and Swings. The special aired on NBC earlier this week. It will be available to watch on the network’s site until 1/15/17. It’s 42 minutes long.
