The holidays bring out special feelings within all of us — warmth, love, generosity, and a serious craving for peppermint lattes. There are also parts of the holiday season none of us can stand, like battling aggressive crowds at Target because everyone is trying to shove their way over to the dollar bins. It’s not always easy putting thoughts into words, so we’ve compiled a collection of holiday GIFs that perfectly describe how we feel this time of year. Can you relate?
