Official Distribution Site

The Spirit of Christmas

Warning: contains explicit language, graphic violence, and 53M of uncompressable data

The Spirit of Christmas is a five-minute animated video, telling the stories of four young American boys, three cultural icons, a crowd of onlooking children, and a large group of rats with antlers. It is truly one of the most moving pieces to ever escape two men's video equipment.

This movie is not recommended for anybody with a slow network connection, or for pregnant women under the age of 15.

Download the Spirit of Christmas

*Just click on one of the site names to download a copy of the movie...*
/If one site doesn't work, then just try another. That's what they're there for/

Mirror List Deleted

*Truth of the matter is, this kind of distribution is kinda irrelevant nowadays*
/Most people that want this stuff are just going to go to one of the eight trillion P2P services out there and look for it.../
*Still, we'd love more mirror sites that will actually stay up. Contact us, and we'll list you*
/There are a lot more versions out there than just these, too.../

Becoming a mirror site

*The main point of this Distribution Site is, of course, to mirror the movie*
/This is necessary because, well, it's big - one server can't handle distributing a 50meg file on its own. Well, at least not one that's this popular/
*There are now more versions of the movie than the forementioned 50 meg MOV, but the same general principle applies - the only way to distribute this is to work together*
/Anyway, our point is this: if you'd like to help out, we'd be happy to have you/
*All you have to do is download the movie, put it up on the web, and tell us where you put it - we'll put a link up, and all will be good*
/There should be copies of most of the versions of the movie off of this page somewhere - if you can't find the copy you want to mirror, mail us and we'll tell you where you can get that version/
*Do note that you should check with your system administrators ahead of time - being a mirror site takes a lot of space and bandwidth, and your admins will be happy to know you're about to use it...*
/Oh, and one more thing - if you could become an archive site, to help distribute every version of SOXMAS to the actual mirror sites, we'd really love that.../
