A couple years ago, Andreas and I decided that we were too lazy to mail out Christmas cards and opted for a “Christmas video” instead. Turns out that videos are WAY more work than cards and this year’s video was no exception.

So what goes into planning a Christmas video, you ask? We start tossing ideas around in September (yes, September!) and begin writing and prepping so that we can film in November. (Andreas started working on this year’s original song back in October!) After a long day of filming, Andreas spends a good chunk of his December evenings busily editing the video so we can get it out to you before Christmas!

Phew. It’s a lot of work but the holiday hilarity is well worth it! Now we just have to start thinking about how we can top this one next year…

But without further ado, we’d like to wish a very “Merry Christmas to all our friends, family, and loved ones around the globe!” We hope you have as much fun watching this video as we did making it! (Plus, shout-out to Adam Schellenberg for spending an entire day filming with us!)

Don’t forget to watch for the bloopers. 😉

(If you want a little refresher on the past year’s Christmas videos, check out “The Night Before Christmas” and “How the Toddler Stole Christmas.”)
