Dominant Meme in This Christmas Season: Flash Mob Singing "Hallelujah" Chorus

Who could have imagined? (I sure didn't.) A flash mob in food courts and department stores bursting into the joyous, glorious Hallelujah chorus by George F. Handel.

This one was done back in October, in Macy's in Philadelphia. It has over 6 million hits on Youtube. Just like the one I linked the other day (that one now has over 25 million hits), look at the faces of people who were not the part of the organizers (singers).

You don't need a fancy concert hall or solemn cathedral. Handel would have been so proud.

Peace on earth. Merry Christmas.
