Ryan Gosling’s love for the holiday season has been “contaminated” by his mother’s fondness for a Hanson Christmas album.

The 30-year-old Canadian actor loves returning home to spend the festive period with his family, and is looking forward to this year’s holidays.

Nonetheless, Ryan admits there is one thing which bugs him about going home for Christmas – his mother’s love of American group Hanson’s album Snowed In, which was released in 1997.

Ryan’s mother became an instant fan of the yuletide record made by brothers Isaac, Taylor, and Zac Hanson, and has been playing it ever since to get into the Christmas spirit.

“[My Christmas] is contaminated. My mother loves that Hanson Christmas record,” he laughed in an interview with Extra.

Ryan says his mother plays the album “on a loop”, and despite finding it rather irritating, the heartthrob admits he is rather partial to the songs himself. For Ryan, the album is the first thing that comes to mind when he thinks of the holidays.

“It’s all I can think of for Christmas, I love it,” he teased.
