With only five days until Christmas, the holiday season is in full swing. Before you can say Happy Kwanzaa, you'll be sitting next to your Uncle Ronnie, listening to him drone on and on about Obama's ties to the occult as you desperately pray for a distraction. Sure, a good holiday film usually shuts the family up for a while, but movies eventually end, not to mention the commercial breaks leave a lot of down time for conversation. That's why this year, we're giving you the gift of gifs!

These 61 classic Christmas-movie gifs are sure to distract your family. They feature some of the best scenes from your favorite holiday films (and a few you probably hate), but unlike the source material, they never end, so there's no excuse for talking to your family at a holiday function.
