Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire

New image-video "Bergweihnacht 2015 Innsbruck" released 
with ANBC Allstars featuring Angela Workman 

For Michael Hammers stars and comets are symbols for time and life, symbols of peace, harmony and love.

For many people stars represent their loved ones, the living as well as those who preceded them, with whom they also feel connected eternally. Because of this and not only because of the big radiance of the heavenly stars, it would be beautiful if Michael Hammers’ dream would come true: “Every city in the world needs a star.”
And ideally one made by the master of the stars, Michael.

Last year the City of Innsbruck already received its own and very special one.
It hovers above the beautiful Old Town crowning the one of a kind Swarovski Crystal-Christmas-Tree.

This year Innsbruck awarded Michael Hammers by making his star the centerpiece of its newly released image-video “Innsbrucker Bergweihnacht”, and Michael thanked by making one of the songs of his “A Night Before Christmas” available: Chestnuts Roasted On An Open Fire, performed by the ANBC All Stars featuring Angela Workman.

The Innsbruck Christmas Market opens Sunday, November 15, 2015.

Let´s Christmas shine bright for everyone!
