Make sketches this season using popular cliches

Which seasonal cliché is your favorite?

Alternatively, add a musical twist by writing Christmas songs based on enigmatic words, performing your moves to your preferred holiday songs, or organizing sing-alongs.

See how Austin Felt is introducing the holiday spirit to video games in the US, how Teacher Tommy T from the UK adopts character POVs from well-known holiday films, and Priscilinha’s hilarious sketch about the perils of Christmas elves in Brazil.
