Nothing says Merry Christmas like Irina Shayk lathering up on the beach

"Merry Christmas, baby."

It's only Day 4 of LOVE Magazine's steamy, annual advent calendar, and we're already waiting with bated breath to see which beautiful lady the next day holds. But before we move on to Day 5, we HAVE to show the one and only Irina Shayk a little (read: a LOT of) love. 

Is there anything more natural in this world than seeing our favorite Russian beauty in a swimsuit? No. So how better to celebrate the holidays than by having Irina travel to her second home (the beach) to lather up and soak up some rays? It makes sense—trust us. 

Irina is in good company for this year's calendar, as she joins a squad that consists of Kendall Jenner, our girl Gigi Hadid and Pamela Anderson.  

Watching Gigi Hadid dance around in lingerie is somehow the perfect way to celebrate the holidays

Seriously though, whoever came up with the idea of revealing sizzling videos each day leading up to Christmas is a genius. Pure genius.
