In fact, there are plenty of free video footage sites. For example check this list of 35+ sites to download free stock videos.
What’s more difficult is to find the best videos among thousands of clips across dozens of sites. In this post we curated some of the most popular free video sites, like Pexels and Pixabay and picked our top 10 most favorite Christmas videos, all available for free download.
We actually used some of these clips in our own Christmas greetings video, which you can also download free.
