“Silent Night” is a song that has been covered and reproduced thousands of times since its original composition by Austrian composer Franz Xaver Guber in 1818.

The music video for this yuletide favorite follows the sentiment of the season with a narrative that truly tugs on the emotional heartstrings within fans. The story kicks off with a mother and her three children, trying to stay warm by the fire. It is soon learned that the family is awaiting their patriarch to return from military duty. There is a countdown written in children’s handwriting on a small chalkboard stating “183 Days ‘Till Daddy’s Home”. To their immense surprise, he was right there, staring in through the window at his beautiful family, 183 days early. What a Christmas miracle! And to pay it forward, The Proctors adopt Max, a shelter white Labrador that complete the true zeitgeist of Christmas; giving and showing compassion for those creatures less fortunate.
