Looking for the 2019 selection? Check it out!

Holiday Video TallI 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, 2015 collection and 2016 collection.)

This year again, I asked the readers of my weekly email newsletter and this blog if they could send links to their 2017 holidays cards. I also got some suggestions via social media.

So, here’s the selection of my favorite 2017 holidays videos (in no specific order) – please note that this is normal that it takes a bit of time to load as there are more than 80 videos on this page.

If you have a holidays video or have seen a cool one that isn’t listed below, post a comment below (I will update the post with new additions) so we can all watch it – and get inspired, next year, when it’s time to come up with an idea for the 2018 Holiday Video :-)

My 2016 collection got more than 3,000 views – the bulk in December/January 2017 AND in August/September 2017.

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!

    I can tell you we had an absolute blast making the Lawrence Tech video! Nice to see so much other creativity at other institutions, too. I haven’t had time to watch them all, but really liked Utah State, John Hopkins, MIT and RIT.
