The Good, Bad, and the Ugly of the Holidays, Explained in GIFs

Sometimes, there are just no words to explain your emotions. Some moments simply call for a higher form of expression, and for those moments, we have GIFs.

Since the holidays are known to stir up a gamut of feelings, many of us are feeling stressed, anxious, excited, and maybe even a bit hopeful all at the same time. Our emotions are flying all over the board during the holiday season, so we thought we'd help lighten things up a bit and give you some hilariously accurate GIFs to let you know that we hear you. We know it's rough out there. Sometimes you're crying for joy, and sometimes you're crying for no reason at all.

The holidays just do that to people. 

So sit back, relax, and scroll through these GIFs that will hopefully bring you a bit of holiday cheer. A gift from Drift to you.


When Christmas is just around the corner, but you're still not ready for it...




...Maybe because you waited until Christmas Eve to buy a present for someone.




Then, you open a gift you hate but you have to pretend you love it...




...But your holiday outfit is on point, and you figure that makes up for something.




...Especially since you peeked at one of your presents and know you're getting something gooood.



Yet deep down you're trying to hide the crazy amidst all the hoopla...


...So you start frantically stocking the home bar before family comes over.




And maybe you went a little crazy on the sweets this year...




...But you get into the holiday spirit eventually, and that's all that matters!
