Stargazing: Snow Halation - Nitta Emi, Nanjo Yoshino, Uchida Aya, Mimori Suzuko, Iida Riho, Pile, Kusuda Aina, Kubo Yurika, Tokui Sora

One last evening before we prepare to count down to 2015. It's been a great year full of experiences, and I hope it has been the same for you all. As unfortunate as I was this year to only have a tiny bit of snow during the entirety of December, this season always manages to keep me in a wonderful mood. I hope everyone else had a wonderful amount of white powder fall from the skies this year. With no further delays, here's today's special song.

'Snow Halation' is a very festive-sounding melody, featuring the idols of Love Live. In the anime (and even before the anime aired, to be exact), the segments with this song showcased the idols dressed in warm, fuzzy white outfits and bathed in holiday lights. While Love Live featured an animated music video of this song prior to the anime series' release, it was done better in the second season to improve the awkward 3D animations. The wholesome harmony of the song just enhances the whole effect.
