The holiday season is in full swing. Light the fire, sip some ‘nog and celebrate the spirit with some of our favorite holiday videos of all time from Christina Aguilera’s Christmas classic to updated remixes courtesy of Destiny’s Child and ‘N SYNC. Happy holidays!
Destiny’s Child - “8 Days of Christmas”
Who needs a “partridge in a pear tree” when you can have a “pair of Chloe shades and a diamond belly ring”? The ladies of Destiny’s Child were onto something while playing Santas in the toy store.
Christina Aguilera - “The Christmas Song”
Christina Aguilera blew us away with her version of the holiday classic “The Christmas Song.” As a kid, Christina says she grew up singing Christmas songs all year long, so it was only fitting that the video interspersed actual footage of a cute, young Christina during the holidays.
Boyz II Men - “Let It Snow”
Roasting marshmallows, playing chess by the roaring fireplace, all the while wearing oversized sweaters and of course, harmonizing. Boyz II Men had a ball with their lady loves in this smooth R&B number.
‘NSYNC - “Merry Christmas Happy Holidays”
Gary Coleman as an elf? ‘NSYNC as Santa? “Merry Christmas Happy Holidays” was a little cheesy even when it dropped back in 1998, but you can’t help but smile a little watching this blast from the past.
Vanessa Williams - “What Child Is This”
Vanessa Williams gave this Christmas staple her own jazzy spin and the black-and-white visual, sliced with everyday cityscapes, was all cool and mellow.
Run-DMC - “Christmas In Hollis”
“It was December 24th on Hollis Ave in the dark / When I seen a man chilling with his dog in the park.” Run-DMC’s “Christmas In Hollis” proved that even Santa’s little helpers loved rap. Make sure to peep the “ill reindeer.”
Mariah Carey - “All I Want For Christmas Is You”
All we want for Christmas….is Mariah’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Mariah combined the holidays and romance (or lack thereof) into a timeless ballad. Mariah was all kinds of cute in the video too, frolicking in the snow, petting reindeer and playing Santa’s little helper.
