Dancin' around the green tree together

I have a feeling that many people are listening to Christmas music online more these days as an actual tonic against the state of things the health crisis has put us all in. They mention wanting to forget their troubles even for a brief moment, needing comfort, and even something to help them sleep. I feel the same way.

Here's a new take on an old classic, a French version of 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' by American singer Brenda Lee, known in French as 'Dansez autour du vert sapin', here sung by Québec's Marie-Ève Janvier and Jean-François Breau, from their Christmas album of 2013, 'Noël à deux'. 

'Noël à deux' means 'Christmas the two of us', and it's not just an act, there are a couple in real life.
