It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas for Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev. From the White House to white snow-covered mountain tops, Nina is making the most of her holiday break from Mystic Falls.

The 24-year-old is currently celebrating “friendsmas” by shredding down the mountainside with her bestie Julianne Hough and her former flame Derek Hough. Eggnog and fireside chats are clearly much too tame for our girl Nina.

But does their holiday closeness mean Nina and Derek are rekindling their summer romance? While the jury is still out on that one, we’re happy these two were able to remain good friends. Can you imagine how awkward that would have been for Julianne if things had truly gone downhill for Nina and Derek? (And we’re not talking about snowboarding!)

We’re just happy to see Nina having so much fun this holiday season, and what better way to celebrate the Yuletide than with your bestie? Nina and Julianne are the cutest celeb besties in the biz. Here’s hoping the two deck the halls in style this season — and document all the fun on Instagram, obviously.

Check out the pic Nina posted from the mountain below and tell us what you think about Nina getting close to Derek again in the comments!
