This is an oldie, but a goodie. For a sentimental soul like me, who loves the holiday season and all that comes with it, this is a great video! Our hero first reminds us of his early days, leveling in Dun Morogh, apparently from level one to level seven, which is a tad mysterious given that he's a human. Nonetheless, as he wanders, tired and sore, through the Valley of the Shadowmoon, he thinks back to those happy days in Dun Morogh, where it's always December.

I agree with the sentiment of the video, Dun Morogh and the snowy zones are just lovely, I don't know why, but there's something comforting and sweet about them. Maybe it's just that I'm English and we almost never have white Christmases. Maybe it's that it's a wholesome, cheerful start zone that you can look back on with a smile. However, I'd have said Morogh, rhyming with horror, rather than Morogh, rhyming with tomorrow. But we're all different, and the lyrics wouldn't have worked nearly as well with my version.

The video was uploaded in 2007, so it's not the most recent, but it's well done, particularly the song itself. It's really musical, with harmonies and pretty darn good accompaniment and the like. Anyhow, I'm off to level another dwarf.
