More LOTR Carols
You know Dasher and Dancer
And Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid
And Donner and Blitzen
But they were all of them deceived
for another reindeer was made
All I Want For Christmas Is…
I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
One Ring to rule them all
One Ring to find them
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie
I’m Dreaming of a…
I’m dreaming of a white wizard
Just like the one I used to know
…ok, maybe not exactly like that one. A bit less evil and power-hungry, for one.
Let It Snow
Oh the weather outside is frightful
but the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Fly you fools! Fly you fools! Fly you fools!
Last Christmas I gave you my heart...
Merry Did You Know?

And finally, Sannatar is Coming to Town
