YouTube has a fun new feature for the holidays, letting you make video holiday cards to share with your friends and family. The landing page has twelve videos, but you can paste the URL of any video on YouTube, or click the “Send this as a Video Holiday Card!” button on any YouTube video page. Then you choose the frame (one of six festive holiday themes), write a greeting, pick the email addresses you want to send it to and away goes your greeting card.
Recipients of your card get a link to a page like this one. You can shoot a special video just to send to your loved ones, or you can choose a video you particularly like and send it as a season’s greeting.
