We all love ourselves some candy canes and eggnog come Christmastime. But how much do we really love these two holiday staples? Do we love them enough to wear them — literally?

There’s nothing to dislike about an NBA star cooking and dancing around a kitchen with his wife, music blaring in the background. And that’s exactly what we have here in this video.
