Hanson is hosting a holiday livestream, so Santa HAS been reading our Christmas lists

As if Hanson’s amazing Christmas album and accompanying music video wasn’t enough, Hanson is doing us another solid and hosting a livestreaming special. The whole shebang is in celebration of Hanson’s twenty-fifth anniversary (!!!) as a band. Which is absolutely something we want to celebrate, because “Mmmbop” is the ultimate song that defined our childhood. It’s a bold claim, we know, but we’re making it.

To accompany the release of Finally It’s Christmas, Hanson will be hosting a 1-2 hour livestreamed Christmas special on their Youtube Channel at 6 PM EST on December 15th.

The show will be streamed live from YouTube studios in New York, and will include the band (obviously) as well as a very lucky live studio audience. The stream will be composed of four parts, all of which we are equally amped about: a live performance, a Q&A with the in-studio fans, a Q&A with fans remotely via social media, and a — wait for it — SECRET SANTA GIFTING SESSION WITH FANS.

It’s almost too much, right? But wait, there’s more.

In addition to the live stream, there will be a few pre-recorded segments, like Christmas cooking hosted by Hanson, some behind-the-scenes footage, Christmas caroling, and some good ol’ nostalgia clips.

We’re here for all of this, basically. We love any opportunity to ~get to know~ one of our all-time favorite bands. And this live stream sounds like a great mix of holiday cheer and Hanson, both of which we are deeply devoted to.


So to recap, clear your calendars for this Friday, December 15th at 6PM EST. You can watch the entire live stream here:


‘Tis the season
