Every year my mom puts together an elaborate advent for me and my siblings to celebrate the countdown to Christmas. Every year I try to thank her by attempting my own advent of sorts, and I have so far failed every year. This year, I have compiled a virtual advent that I hope will be a success. Below are the 24 days of advent, and on each day, a link to a video that I like will appear. Each video will be different; they will be motivating, funny, cute, artistic, and hopefully fun. There are a few videos that are long, about 10 minutes or so, but I have tried to limit the length for your short attention spans.
The goal of this is to watch something every day that inspires you to love, create, and spread joy this holiday season.

This is one of my favorite videos of all time. Do more.
I think this video is beautiful and makes me appreciate the strangeness of nature.

I love the exploration of process. This video shows the most magnified process imaginable, and I think it's beautiful.
Only 5 more days!
The Christmas season is a time for miracles...
As we head into a very commercialized time of the year, I think it is important to reflect on the beauty of nature.
