Utah-Tube: Highland family continues #familygoals tradition with annual Christmas dance video


They’re back. The Highland family that makes you want to grab your ugly sweater and call your family has returned with its sixth annual holiday dance video.

Each year the Orgills don their mother’s Christmas sweaters and choreograph an original routine.

For its 2017 routine, the family from Highland, Utah expanded the dancing crew beyond its eight siblings. This year two parents, three in-laws, three nieces and three dogs joined in the holly, jolly dance.

“So grateful for a family that loves to dance as much as I do,” said Ammon Orgill, one of the siblings, on his Instagram account.

Dancing to Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me,” this is the sixth year the family has kept up the Christmas dance video tradition. The top performing video thus far has been the 2015 video, which has more than 4 million views. The other videos include:

2012: “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey

2013: “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” by Mariah Carey

2014: “Drummer Boy” by Justin Bieber

2015: “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” by Justin Bieber

2016: “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” by Pentatonix and “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey
