My theme this year is a scary Christmas. I'm looking for Christmas carols that have been given a spooky, creepy touch. I used to have a folder of songs I had found online that I had been saving for this theme, but it has disappeared from my computer. If you could help, I would love you forever and ever. Thank you, in advance!

Although not Halloween-y per se, here's a dark-ish version of "Deck The Halls". Priscilla Ahn was requested to do this for some friends, specifically for the indie dark comedy titled "Gravy"

"Disney's Haunted Mansion Holiday" might hit the spot. The 2003 version has spooky renditions of carols with vocals. The 2001 is (in my opinion) a little spookier and has a few more instrumentals.

I've got a few scary Xmas albums - I'll try to post them this weekend......

I'm trying to remember if they had creepy carols per se or were just scary Xmas songs, but I don't remember - unlike Halloween music (which I could listen to all year), I can only listen to Xmas music between Thanksgiving & Xmas. Probably has to do with working retail for years & being force-fed Xmas tunes all the time....

Another suggestion is Nox Arcana's trilogy of Winter albums. All three (Winter's Knight, Eve, and Majesty) are mostly instrumental, but there are also a few tracks that are darker versions of traditional Christmas carols.

Well, it's not studio quality either, but here's my rendition of Jingle Bells from a skit we used to do with Vaudeville style marionettes. This one was performed by a skeleton in a tux. :cool: You can download it free, too! Hope that helps!

Jingle Bones

Jingle Bones (instrumental only)

"One deadly silent night,
I thought I heard a sound
It caught me quite off guard...
From 6 Feet underground!

These bones I found made noise,
like music to my ears!
An instrument I made,
Right out of those Reindeer!

Jingle Bones! Jingle Bones!
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to wake the dead on Christmas Day!

Jingle Bones! Jingle Bones!
Jingle all the way!
We've been just dying, to celebrate this holiday!

Another chilling eve,
I heard a gruesome sound!
It gave me quite the chills...
More bones, I think, I found.

That “Red-Nosed” had his day.
I saw his spirit rise;
Departed from those ribs,
that have now become my chimes! AHAHAHAHAHA!

Jingle Bones! Jingle Bones!
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to wake the dead on Christmas Day!

Jingle Bones! Jingle Bones!
Jingle all the way!
We've been just dying, to celebrate this holiday!"
