Good news for fans of both Orange is the New Black and holiday cheer: OITNB’s Danielle Brooks — better known as prison librarian Taystee — has recorded a Christmas medley. (Brooks sang on the show a few times and is remarkably good.)

What’s even better is the fact that she invited castmate Uzo Aduba, who plays Crazy Eyes, to be in the video with her and contribute some backing vocals. The medley includes parts of “Deck the Halls,” “Jingle Bells,” “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World.” The pair is accompanied by Brooklyn indie folk act Oh Honey.

If you’re not feeling Christmas-y yet, hopefully this video will kick-start your holiday spirit. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, it’s hard not to feel great about life after watching this video. Everyone just seems to be having such a good time.
