Three weeks until Christmas!

In honor of Throwback Thursday, we're looking back at Destiny's Child 2001 Christmas album, 8 Days of Christmas. Particularly, we're focusing on the title song and video, which is simply delightful -- in a cheesy, somewhat-dated, perfect kind of way.

Don't believe me? Here are 8 eight moments from the video that are bringing me all the holiday joy this season. 

8. The Destiny's Child Barbies on the shelves.

7. The Destiny's Child Barbies' outfits.

6. Beyonce singing the lyric: "On the eighth day of Christmas my baby gave to me / A pair of Chloe shades and a diamond belly ring."

5. The amount of times they say "Destiny's Child" and "DC" at the beginning of the song; don't worry, guys! We won't forget who sings this. 

4. Michelle's Christmas joy appears to center around holding a shovel.

3. Important: How did they decide which member had to wear the crop top Santa outfit?

2. Beyonce singing the lyric: "On the third day of Christmas my baby gave to me / A gift certificate to get my favorite CDs." Ah, CDs... It's no "pager" circa "Bug A Boo," but it's still worth a chuckle. 

1. Twist! Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle (donning Santa outfits) shut down a children's toy store to get presents for all the kids -- who they then invite into the store! Everyone is happy! Sisterhood forever! The holidays are the best!

Take it away, Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle.

Not enough for you? Please tell me you didn't forgot that Destiny's Child also got a claymation makeover and flirted with Rudolph and told Santa he could guide their sleigh tonight.
