Movie Summary
When I set out to write "Greatfather Winter", I really wanted to create a Winter Veil classic. Only time will tell if I actually achieved that, but it was a goal of mine while writing, recording, and editing. I got the idea for the song last year at this time as I was flying a reindeer over Shattrath. I took some screenshots back then for inspiration because I knew I'd be writing the song this year when those scenes were not available in-game to provide inspiration. I started writing the song several months ago, but the final verse and chorus only came together yesterday, and the video editing was an all-nighter. Fortunately, I use a very simple machinima style with no composite editing or model viewer work, and so I was able to put the video together relatively quickly.

I tried to include hints of other Christmas classics in this video. For example, the line "don't you shoot your eyeballs out" is inspired by "A Christmas Story". There are many other such references and other stylistic references as well. I encourage you to find them and reply here.

Here are the lyrics to "Greatfather Winter". I hope you enjoy!

Listen children young and old
Gather 'round and you'll be told
It's tradition every year
Winter Veil is drawing near
Listen up today's the day
Father Winter's on his way
Bringing with him treats and toys
Giving them to girls and boys

Greatfather Winter won't you bring
Something for my stocking
Something shiny something bright
Some goggles I can use at night
Greatfather Winter don't be late
For that day we just can't wait
So bring us lots of treats and toys
And fill our Winter Veil with joy

See the presents at the tree
A blunderbuss for you and me
Don't you cry and don't you pout
Don't you shoot your eyeballs out
Sip the eggnog try some cake
Find the Greench for goodness sake
Fly a reindeer 'cross the sky
Don't fall off or you might die

Greatfather Winter won't you bring
A Turbo-Charged Flying Machine
Some rocket boots that make me fly
And I just want a motorbike
Greatfather Winter won't you please
We're begging you down on our knees
So bring explosives and a gun
And then we'll surely have some fun

So grab your girlfriend just like so
And kiss her at the mistletoe
If you want some epic loot
Pick her up a winter suit
Buy a pint of Winter Ale
Drink too much and you will fail
Turn yourself into a Gnome
Send a stolen reindeer home

Greatfather Winter won't you bring
A Clockwork Rocket Bot for me
Something violent, something loud
Something to disperse a crowd
Greatfather Winter can't you see
We're excited as can be
So bring us lots of treats and toys
And fill our Winter Veil with joy
