The Chicago Gay Hockey Association -- the Windy City's official gay hockey organization -- released a special video last week just in time for the holidays. It's a cover of Mariah Carey's ubiquitous holiday hit song, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," sung by members of the team.

It's quite adorable, if I do say so myself. What some of the players lack in vocal talent they more than make up for in enthusiasm, which makes the whole thing a lovely bit of fun.

The video is accompanied by a holiday message:

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!

Check out the video below. With almost 35,000 views over the holiday weekend, it's on its way to becoming a viral hit.
