Does anyone have good ideas for a "Sounds of the Seasons" Christmas float?

"Joy to the World" is my favorite seasonal sound.
Joy to the World sounds great! I am a novice when having to build the float. What could you use to make a float that symbolizes Joy to the World.
Thanks in advance!
Dress some children up like angels and put them in some "clouds" made of quilt batting. Spray the batting with white or silver glitter. Make cardboard stars and cover them with silver foil wrapping paper. Place the stars here and there among the clouds. Play "Joy to the World" or have the children sing the song.
First thing that came to my mind is "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire". You can build a fireplace and have kids or a couple or even a family sitting in front of the fire roasting chestnuts while the song is playing in the background.
I like the idea of making several song motifs. If you did joy to the world; make a world,and put joy in big letters over the top. Here are some examples: away in a manger-a manger scene. Rudolph the red nosed reindeer_a reindeer with a red nose. We wish you a Merry Christmas-have carolers sing it.
Make the float red and green, put some greenery on it. Glitter where you can. Here are some sites to look at maybe it will help out.
Good luck and have fun with it!
