The 12 Days of Christmas, Canucks style

Gillis gets seasonal

'Tis the season, as they say. To which I say "Thanks Captain Obvious. The season runs from October until at least April, so of course 'tis the season." Anyway, in the spirit of "the season," please enjoy a Canucks rendition of the classic song The 12 Days of Christmas.
