The season is upon us.
Basketball season… hockey season…football season; feel free to take your pick. It is also the holiday season. The malls are packed. The stockings are hung. Trees and houses alike are lavishly adorned with ornate displays.
The holiday and sports seasons often intermingle. While teams are separated in competition, they often join together in holiday cheer.
Who better to spread cheer than cheerleaders?
From the (often) frozen gridiron of the NFL, to the (always) frozen rinks of the NHL; many cheerleaders have invoked the Christmas spirit over the course of the month of December. Like the array of Christmas cookies left out for good old St. Nick, cheerleaders come in many forms (i.e. Ice girls and dance teams).
In their honor and in an effort to spread some holiday cheer; here are 20 cheerleaders who were feeling festive during the month of December. Be warned; the way this collection of Santa’s little helpers are dressed may land some people on the naughty list.
