Chicago Gay Hockey Association's 'All I Want For Christmas' Video Will Put You In The Holiday Spirit

These guys and gals have just one thing on their Christmas list this year.

With their cheery cover of what is arguably the best Christmas song written within the past, oh, 50 years (embedded above), the Chicago Gay Hockey Association has a viral hit on their hands.

The talented singer-hockey players also offered up a message via its YouTube description:

We want you to put aside your differences. And to spend some time getting closer to your family and friends. If you take a step back and look, you may surprise yourself with how much you have in common with people. The person next to you on the train could become your best friend. After all, aren't we all just looking for love? Don't forget to laugh a little. And sing a little. Happy Holidays y'all!

Writer Dan Savage joked the video is even more evidence of the gay community "out-marketing" the Catholic Church on same-sex marriage in a Saturday tweet.
