Christmas has come to the residents of Red Dead Online, with pianists at the saloon dusting off their festive sheet music.

Red Dead Online players have noticed a festive ambience in the watering holes they frequent, with pianists all over the map busting out their best renditions of Christmas carols, like Deck the Halls, Silent Night, and even good old Jingle Bells.

Gameplay clips are being posted on Twitter and Reddit (via DualShockers) of the in-game musicians playing their ditties, some of which have been retweeted by Rockstar.

People on the Reddit thread are even claiming to have stumbled across NPCs playing carols on banjos and guitars.

Watch on YouTube

YouTuber Tony StrongStyle has compiled a video of 16 carols being played in a saloon in the video above, but if you don’t have 20 minutes to check it out, you can have a listen to the shorter clips posted on social media below. The video does have timestamps for each song, so you can always jump ahead to your favourite:

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Jingle Bells

Deck the Halls

TIL that although there isn’t snow all over the map, the pianists have found a way to show their festive spirit from r/reddeadredemption
