Looking for the 2018 selection? Check it out!

Top 2014 Higher Ed Holidays Video CardsI 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 and 2013 collection.)

This year again, I asked the readers of my weekly newsletter if they could send links to their 2014 holidays cards. I also got some suggestions via Twitter.

So, here’s the selection of my favorites 2014 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 2015 Holiday Video :-)

My 2013 collection got more than 5,000 views – the bulk in December/January 2013 AND in August/September 2013.

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!
