The best ugly Christmas sweater ever plays ‘Carol of the Bells’


Who knew the winner of the Ugly Christmas Sweater contest at the local holiday work gathering also could play a famous holiday song with the garment she’s wearing?

Apparently, the woman in the video below knew all along. That’s why she’s seated with a Christmas sweater that happens to be adorned with a variety of bells and then breaks out a fantastic version of “Carol of the Bells.”

It was the No. 1 trending video on YouTube on Friday, and it’s easy to see why. It’s wholesome and funny and fantastic.

Whether it’s the best version of a Christmas song played on bell-adorned clothes is up for debate. After all, this video also exists.

On second thought, the mom in the jumpsuit probably wins this battle. But the woman in the Christmas sweater should feel proud, either way. For 51 seconds, she brought everybody who watched her video just a little bit of holiday joy.
