The Blackhawks understand that not all of us can afford a cabin in the woods with a nice fireplace to retreat to around Christmastime, so they are helping fans get that comfy feeling with a three-hour-long yule log video.
The clip includes team stars like Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Corey Crawford getting ready for the holidays by trimming a tree, enjoying some cookies, dressing up like a candy cane and just generally being weird.
Things take a dark turn around the 15 minute mark, when a laughing coach Joel Quenneville appears inside the flames, so get ready to be a little bit afraid.
The team has also made a condensed 24-minute version of the clip, for those of you without three full hours to spare.
Finally a chance to add some hockey, and a fair dose of creepiness, to your Christmas traditions.
