Animated GIFs. Horrible, aren't they? A relic of the '90s, they continue to appear in modern websites, particularly in the festive season. They've always looked tacky and amateurish, and they always will.
Equally awful are some of the Christmas decorations that adorn houses over the holiday period. I've seen entire houses blinking on and off, which must cause all sorts of traffic-control headaches. I've seen ridiculous-looking sleighs with spinning wheels, deer which look for food in the snow, and giant inflatable snow globes.
What is wrong with people? Why do they do this to their homes, and their websites? Stop the blinking!
