If Carol isn’t your favorite Christmas movie, you’re a homophobic Grinch. The 2015 Todd Haynes masterpiece stars Rooney Mara as a shop girl named Therese who falls in love with the titular Carol (Cate Blanchett). It’s one of the best queer love stories of our time that totally does justice to author Patricia Highsmith. Plus, it’s the gayest holiday classic since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny Kaye.
Netflix has graced fans of this queer Christmas favorite with a singalong that could turn any Grinch into a lesbian with holiday cheer. A series of videos features a group of women dressed as Carol and Therese (imagine Pitch Perfect with lesbian cinephiles), serenading fans with a repertoire sure to make the yuletide gay. They’ve rewritten classic holiday tunes with lyrics like “On the first day of Carolmas, my true love gave to me, an olive atop a martini.”
The streaming platform has updated five Christmas “Carols” in celebration of this classic. From “Hark! The Harold Carols Sing” to “Away in a Toy Shop,” it’s the sapphic tribute this holiday season needs.
