    18 Defining Moments Of 2014 For BuzzFeed's UK Creative Team

    It's been a big year for small animals. Happy Christmas, everyone!

    1. January: Nicky and Philly went to New York on the coldest day ever.

    2. In February, this GIF was removed from a post because 'The cat looks like it's having sex with the bed'.

    3. March: Antonia joined as Creative Designer!

    4. And Hedwig from Harry Potter visited the office.

    5. In April, Nicky was asked to be less 'cruel and mocking' in a post.

    6. In May, Antonia won a medal for her love of Batman.

    7. In June we went to the zoo and saw a monkey doing something very rude.

    8. July: Hayley (and her cat Ned) joined the team.

    9. This was also the month when Phineas Ernest Sander joined (explicit image censored)

    10. We also turned our faces into barbecue foods.

    11. In August, we began our weekly 'No look' drawing competition.

    12. In September these machines were delivered to the office, causing much alarm.

    13. November: Sam and his shoe collection joined us.

    14. Here he is in action.

    He continues to inspire us all.

    15. Nicky achieved the impossible by writing a relevant, successful post about being an Indian hipster.

    16. In December, Hayley went to New York to chat and eat bacon with Neil Gaiman. No big deal.

    Fly on the wall at @hayleycampbelly's book signing. What a legend! (Hayley. But suppose Neil's alright too)

    17. And Philly showed his Christmas cheer.

    18. It's been a big year - and we couldn't do it without you. THANK YOU!

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year from the UK creative team - here's to 2015!
