Not sure that calling attention to this video is a good idea if you want it to remain up. The primary reason it never went into reruns is that the nature of the show makes it copyright hell.

This one is probably safe. The original movie somehow ended up in the public domain (at least in the USA) and is available on archive.org.

All the Martians were depicted as white people, that's oppressive.

Same here! They seem like they want to do them more often... was this the first year they did 3? I don't recall one in December last year.

Technically speaking, he fights a dancing flamboyant demon sent to earth by the devil.

Well, the solstice was the winter holiday...but if you're going to say "ruined" then  you don't know your history. Up until the Romans granted this as a "holy day" slaves throughout the Empire (that didn't have a day off to practice their pagan religion) could not really celebrate this day to the fullest. Essentially the Christians got to remember and celebrate the God of the universe coming down in the flesh and the Romans made sure to be inclusive so they merged everything together around the solstice so everyone could play nicely.
