December is upon us which only means one thing in the YouTube vlogging world – Vlogmas 2015. Every year, a variety of vloggers take on the ultimate challenge of filming their festive antics and uploading the footage every day in the run-up to Christmas Day (25 December). It is no easy feat and many buckle under the pressure but there are some who stick with it until the end.
So what happens during Vlogmas? Those familiar with watching daily vloggers such as the SacconeJolys or the Shaytards get a daily insight into everything they get up to including hanging out with friends, attending vlogger events or spending quality time with family. However, Vlogmas is that bit more extra special with all the festive fun taking place across December. This can include a day at Winter Wonderland or the more domesticated activities such as putting up their Christmas tree.
With so many vloggers to choose from, Vlogmas can be a minefield but IBTimes UK has rounded up the channels you will not want to miss...
The UK's most prominent vlogger has decided to launch #24daysofzoella, which will feature the 25-year-old uploading a video on both her main channel and her second channel each day. Subscribers will follow Zoella, real name Zoe Sugg, around her hometown of Brighton, day-to-day life with boyfriend Alfie Deyes and their pet dog, Nala.

Vlogmas should come easy for Deyes, 24, who already daily vlogs on his second channel. Prepare to get access to the YouTuber's silly antics with friends and, of course, his home life with girlfriend Zoella.
Sprinkle Of Glitter
Louise Pentland has tried Vlogmas many times in the past and has admitted to struggling with the daily uploads but, after a successful stint in 2014, has vowed to give it a try again this year. In addition to her busy work schedule in London, viewers enjoy watching the 30-year-old get into the festive spirit with her four-year-old daughter Darcy at their home in Northampton.
The beauty guru will spend Christmas as a married woman for the first time after tying the knot with fellow vlogger Jim Chapman in September.
The Londoner, formerly known as Beauty Crush, is usually successful in her attempts at vlogging. However, Vlogmas 2015 will be even more exciting as the lifestyle guru is making big steps with her Novem & Knight clothing brand alongside boyfriend Jason, so viewers will no doubt get a behind-the-scenes look at the trials and tribulations of Sammi as a businesswoman.
Gabriella aka Velvet Ghost
Gabby, real name Gabriella Lindley, promises plenty of collaborations with her YouTube friends this Vlogmas and with her finally reconciled with Zoella, subscribers can expect some cameos from the YouTube superstar.
And the best of the rest: Fleur De Force, In The Frow, Lily Pebbles and Essie Button.
