San Jose Sharks hold office Christmas party, yuletide hilarity ensues (video)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not only because it is Christmas time, but because this holiday season means NHL teams appear to be trying to one-up one another by releasing hilarious Christmas-themed videos.

The Washington Capitals got things off to a rocking start with players festively “performing” an interesting rendition of “Jingle Bells.”

Other teams have followed suit — namely the St. Louis Blues — but for sheer frivolity and silliness, the San Jose Sharks have topped them all with the above video from the team’s holiday office party.

It kicks off with the Sharks announcers discussing Christmas parties like they are breaking down game footage and it goes from there with the announcing crew interspersing scenes of various holiday-themed antics from the players with more analysis.

Brent Burns steals the show, though, as he unwraps presents like some hyperactive child along with Patrick Marleau.

Great stuff.
