Looking for the 2018 selection? Check it out!

Top 2016 Higher Ed Holiday VideosI love holidays cards. So, every year since 2010, I watch lots of them to create a nice little collection for everybody’s viewing pleasure (2010 collection, 2011 collection, 2012 collection, 2013 collection, 2014 collection and 2015 collection.)

This year again, I asked the readers of my weekly email newsletter and this blog if they could send links to their 2016 holidays cards. I also got some suggestions via Twitter.

So, here’s the selection of my favorite 2016 holidays videos (in no specific order).

If you have a holiday card or have seen a cool one that isn’t listed below, post a comment so we can all watch it – and get inspired, next year, when it’s time to come up with an idea for the 2016 Holiday Video :-)

My 2015 collection got more than 5,000 views – the bulk in December/January 2016 AND in August/September 2016.

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!
