At first glance, Christmas and GIFs don't go together at all. But before you dismiss the idea of a Christmas GIF as a silly gimmick, check out these beautiful Christmas GIFs created by a team of international illustrators, animators, and directors. The curated open source project encourages users to submit their own GIF for the "festive showcase of animated GIFs."
From the sweet and playful to the serious and somber, these GIFs encapsulate the entire range of emotions surrounding the holidays. Also: you can share them with friends (or submit your own).
