Have you finished your Christmas shopping? Have you even started? Yeah, me too. Try as I might, I always seem to leave all the holiday shopping until the last minute. Don’t me wrong: I don’t do any gift buying on Christmas Eve or even the day before that. Still, I tend to put off my Christmas duties as long as possible.

What better way to spend your time, then by watching the best videos that are making waves around the internet?
