Mom's "Jingle Bells" Parody Video

"Jingle Bells"? More Like "Jingle Hell," According to One Mom's Parody

This video was originally featured on MyLifeSuckers by Deva Dalporto, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Moms. You can subscribe to her YouTube channel here.

Between baking batches of cookies, creating memorable Elf on the Shelf scenes, and fighting for the last Elsa doll, the holidays can be a living hell for parents. So much so that one mom decided to turn her holiday frustrations into a cheerful tune. Deva Dalporto, the woman who has masterfully covered everything from "Let It Go" to "All About That Bass," has returned with a holiday hit that captures the spirit and stress of the season. A riff off "Jingle Bells," Dalporto's song tackles the biggest holiday nightmares, like last-minute shopping and dealing with the in-laws.

But unlike Dalporto's usual pop parodies, this one comes with an important message. The mother of two teamed up with Responsibility.org, an organization that promotes making responsible choices around drinking alcohol, to spread the message of staying safe on the road during the holidays — and every day, for that matter. The topic hits close to home for Dalporto, who experienced firsthand the dangers of drinking and driving. She wrote about it on her blog:

"When I was a little girl, my father used to drive drunk with me in the car. I remember zooming through the dark, twisty roads of Vermont gripping onto the side of my seat praying we wouldn't crash. Praying we'd make it home alive. I begged him to slow down. Asked him to be careful. But he just brushed me off and there was nothing I could do. I couldn't drive. I couldn't call a cab. I was a little kid and I was helpless. I don't want any child to ever feel the desperation I felt in those moments."

So while you watch and inevitably laugh out loud at her parody, make sure to take its lessons with you when you go to your next holiday party.
