Christmas Flash Mob at the National Air and Space Museum

Above: The U.S. Air Force Band plays Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. Ah, the holidays. The sparkle of lights, the hum of expectation and the gathering together just for the sake of, well, gathering together. Add to that a holiday flash mob by the United States Air Force Band and it's enough to make you really wish Christmas came more than once a year. On Dec. 3, the U. S. Air Force Band and conductor Col. Larry H. Lang serenaded visitors to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum with a flash mob rendition of J.S. Bach's Christmas classic Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. It's all preserved for posterity in the video above. Merry Christmas!
