Christmas Holidaze is a 2022 sketch comedy brickfilm serial coordinated by "JO Co" as an official community project of Bricks in Motion. It was executive produced by Zach Macias, as it is a spiritual successor to Macias' 2020 community project serial Quarantine Daze.[1] As with that project, it features submissions from the community strung together in a style similar to Robot Chicken. Clips were required to relate to Christmas or the holiday season in some way, and to be between 20 and 60 seconds long. 52 different animators contributed clips. The development of the project was also assisted by Chris Wynn, Seán Willis, and Jonathan Mangiapane.

Christmas Holidaze also follows a number of annual Christmas collaborations in the community, which began in 2017 with the community project film A Brickfilm Christmas, officially in association with Bricks in Motion. The ones that followed were not in official association with BiM and took the form of individual films gathered in playlists. The project Christmas Brickfilms 2021 also had "JO Co" as a coordinator.
