In the YouTube video posted on Tuesday, the trio can be seen dancing in the snow in familiar places like Yonge and Dundas Square, down in the PATH and at Union Station.

Young said the video, which has since garnered nearly 80,000 views, was originally intended for a select audience to complement their holiday card.

“We made this postcard that we sent out to close family and friends and put a QR code on there so people could scan it on their phone and get the video as a bonus piece of content,” Young told Global News on Wednesday.

“One of my friends was like ‘you should put that on YouTube’ so I uploaded it and it went crazy.”

Young said the minute-long video took under an hour to make and almost two hours to edit. Although they have made videos as a family together in the past, this was their first themed project, she said.
