Christmas music for student group

I'm looking for simple (but not dumb!) arrangements for a group of traditional players of all ages and a range of skills. We are mostly a fiddle group, with 10 -12 fiddles, a couple of banjos, a piano and 1-2 guitars. We range in age from 10 to 85! I've been combing the internet and I've found a couple of things right here in musescore that look more interesting than the standard fare. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone. 

Check out my Mozart Arrangement

This is my first full Mozart arrangement. I plan to do multiple more(maybe even all 18 Mozart sonatas). But this is his Piano Sonata in C minor. All 3 movements are there. Here is the link if you want to listen to it:

I found it perfectly fit for a trio, so I arranged it for a string trio. As for the triple and quadruple stops in the rondo. I put in arpeggio signs and then immediately made them invisible. So it will look like chords, but it will sound arpeggiated, which is the way a violinist would actually play a triple or quadruple stop. 

Violinists, Cellists, Violists, I need your feedback. Did I write anything that is impossible? If so, what is it? I need to know so that I can improve this already great arrangement.

Greeting to all Gaming Violists!

Don't be nervous. Join the group now. I see you sitting there, just planning on checking this group out and moving along. That's what you're doing, right? Well, I got news for you, pal! Well, ok... not like I'm going to stop you from doing that, but if your interest lies with this group, even if you aren't planning on arranging anything, joining won't hurt, right? Getting free notifications for viola gaming music isn't ever a bad thing, right? RIGHT? If you are considering putting your own arrangements in the group, however, please do so! Even if you just have some scores sitting around in your My Scores menu, just gathering dust as the occasional violist passes by, putting them here won't hurt you. 

(This is not, and I repeat, NOT some lame excuse for me to get more game-related viola music for myself specifically)***
