Jingle Bell Rocks exposes odd and unknown Christmas songs

SHARE Jingle Bell Rocks exposes odd and unknown Christmas songs

Run D.M.C.’s Christmas in Hollis might not be the first thing that you think of when you’re recalling a holiday jingle. It’s also one of the songs featured in Jingle Bell Rocks - a new film that looks at why we keep coming back to same Christmas classic instead of listening to some modern Christmas cheer. You can catch Jingle Bell Rocks for a limited time at the Vic. It will run from December 19th to the 25th. Tonight, director Mitchell Kezin is at the screening for a post-show discussion, but he’s here in studio with us first.
