It’s become an annual Holiday tradition, on the level of decorating the tree, singing carols and Santa’s visit on Christmas Eve. And it’s just as eagerly anticipated – by young and old alike.
Lights Camera Jackson began doing his “12 Days of Movie of Christmas” videos back in 2009, when he was 11. It became an instant holiday classic. Each year since then he’s shared the DVD’s (and Blu-rays) he received with his followers, friends and fans, in song.
Sit-back now and enjoy this year’s version – and Happy Holiday’s, everybody!
