Leona Lewis makes the season merry and bright with the vintage video for her Christmas single “One More Sleep.” As the snow falls outside, the British singer puts up stockings and wraps presents in her cozy cabin as she awaits the arrival of her loved ones. They have a snowball fight, warm up by the fireplace, and even get a visit from Santa Claus.

“The video basically came from an idea that we did a little while ago where a camera crew came to the studio and shot me and my friends just kinda messing around,” explained Leona.

Her holiday album Christmas, With Love hits stores on Tuesday featuring three original songs and seven remakes of Christmas classics.

Watch Leona spread some cheer with her festive video.
