After the deeply unusual and unsettling year that has been 2020, many of us are no doubt feeling grateful that a new one is about to begin. And while you'd be forgiven for not wanting to look back at 2020 at all, perhaps the most palatable to do so is through the medium of GIFs – and a new roundup from Giphy is here to help you do just that.

The site has revealed its annual 25 most-viewed animations of the year, and from dumpsters on fire to social distancing reminders (below), they do a pretty good job of summing up highs and, more pertinently, the lows of 2020. (Check out our best animation tools if you fancy creating your own masterpiece.)
