Home For Christmas

I went to the Beacon Theater last night to see Hall and Oates' Home For Christmas Tour. They were promoting their Christmas album of the same name. I didn't even know Hall and Oates had a Christmas album, but they covered The First Noel, The Christmas Song and Jingle Bell Rock with arrangements that rendered these stalwart favorites into...Hall and Oates songs. It was as if an improv group had taken the stage and asked, "We need a Christmas song" and "we need a style" and then came up with a brilliant Hall and Oates parody.

They also did a lot of actual Hall and Oates songs, which pleased us greatly, since at $75 and up you want to hear "I Can't Go For That," not "Jingle Bells."

At the finale of the show there was a fake snowfall. Then we went outside and there was a real snowfall. How did they do that?
