    I have 2 new songs as requested from my family to do:
    Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande
    Santa's Coming For Us - Sia (with thanks to @DavidJ247 for first seeing the song!)
    I will come up with some others too as I want to retire my Hi-5 mix this year.

    Christmas everyday - Simple plan, has a good beat for effects to time to, nice and bright and lively
    Carol of the bells - Capital kings ? - jury's still out on this one
    Jingle bells - Colton Dixon, has the famous jingle bells Batman smells lyrics :p, nice beat, modern version, you could use lego Batman images
    All I want for Christmas is you, still haven't done it....
    Jingle bells - Glee cast version, suits singing faces, nice fast beat, suits effects.
    Happy Pharrelll Williams, from Minions, mainly for matrix screens, video goes well on big screens..

    I also already did Christmas Everyday... I might do Winter Wonderland by Pentatonix because it's a mashup with Don't worry be happy. But that would mean a 3rd PTX song in my line up and I am already planning Winter Wonderland by EWF.

    Not adding too many songs this year... I hated this song until I watched the movie. Now its a must add for this year! "The Greatest Show" seems appropriate for a light display. I need to get to work on it...
