It's easy to forget the treasure trove of videos that get posted to this site, as our home page photo feeds are oh-so-captivating and often all-consuming. That being said, I decided to mix up this week's Spotlight by gifting you with a roundup of Christmas and Hanukkah videos that you may have overlooked. Some are full-fledged tutorials; others are short-and-sweet teasers of seasonal cookie delights. But all are bound to boost the holiday cheer and whet your appetite!
This Spotlight is also different in another respect. Rather than present the top-trending videos, I have simply listed the ten holiday videos that have been posted to the site most recently, in order of most to least recent. (The classification systems on our site don't make it easy for me to isolate top-trending videos within a certain category. Plus, Christmas gift shopping, trimming the tree, decking my halls, and planning holiday menus are all telling me that I shouldn't make things harder than they need to be! )
I hope you (and I!) will find time between holiday chores to sneak in some binge-watching. From what I've already seen, these videos are quite therapeutic! In the meantime, please say congrats to this week's honorees. (Note: If a featured artist did not embed a YouTube video on this site, you will not see a video player embedded below. Instead, you will have to click on the pink link above the photo to view that person's video.)
