It's been 27 years since the nation spent Christmas In Hollis, but the holidays remain a pretty big deal for Run-D.M.C's Rev Run. So much so, the Simmons' celebrate Christmas for a straight up week, feasting the entire way through. A few of the dishes on the spread this year are Rev's Rev Run's Gotta-Be-On-Time Prime RibFestive Fruit Salad with Orange-Maple-Vanilla Syrup and  Ninjabread Men Cookies. You'll have to tune in to Rev Run's Happy Holidays to see what else is on the menu. We can tell you that for Rev, the most important ingredients are happy hearts, full bellies and family. Get a sneak peek of Rev's rich and creamy hot chocolate after the jump.
