Merry Christmas, everyone. It's no surprise that there is no shortage of Christmas videos to be found this season. Finding them isn't difficult; paring them down is very much so. We have videos here that represent food, music, entertainment, and more, all the things that make the holiday fun. With this compilation you should have a lot to work with: you have a recipe for gingerbread man cupcakes, you've got a rundown of 40 songs in one video, and YouTube stars Smosh give us their two-part cracked take on hunting down Santa Claus. Enjoy!
