Some celebrity holiday traditions are just way cooler than yours.

Sibling dancers Derek Hough and Julianne Hough were joined by their friend (and Derek's ex), "The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev, in their annual Christmas Dance Wars, where they battle Maria Menounos' family every year with awesome choreographed videos. Yeah, while everyone else binges on cookies and eggnog and has the ultimate lazy day, these professional dancers were up creating envious dance videos for fun. Watch the epic dance battle below ...

The Houghs (and Dobrev) start off by declaring they are on the "nice" list -- and employ some cool reverse filming skills:

As if you weren't envious enough, they brag that they can do this all night as the whole family gets in on the fun:

And no, this isn't hard for them at all. They even break out some kick-butt dance moves after seeing a movie together in downtown Salt Lake City:

Seriously, can we join the Houghs on Christmas next year?

Even the bloopers are awesome, where a take devolves into a snowball fight:

Team Menounos put up a great fight, but there's clearly no competition ... the Houghs won this year:
