Fun Sites for the Holidays

Here are a few websites to visit for some Holiday frivolity:
  • Elf Yourself. From the clever folks at JibJab, with underwriting by OfficeMax to keep it free, is a fun, and surprisingly easy (they've really improved the interface from last year) way to send funny holiday emails to your friends and family.
  • Chin Carolers. They don't sing the entire song, unfortunately, but they do know the refrain from an awful lot of holiday tunes. (Hat Tip: Lois Duckey)
  • Tracking Santa Claus. NORAD tracks Mr. C's progress around the world.
  • Design Your Own Gingerbread House. Pretty intuitive and inventive. Allows for truly artistic creations, or just plain silly stuff, like adding a fish to your gingerbread house.
  • Christmas eCards. A variety of cards are available: some funny, some religious, some animated. 123greetings also has non-Holiday cards-- all for free.
  • Christmas Screensavers. If you want to make your computer more festive, this is a good website for you.
Most of these sites have advertising of some sort or other, which is why they are free, but the intrusion level isn't too bad. Have fun!

I like Christmas greeting cards, but now I like HoopoeQuotes more, 123greetings are a bit oldfashioned for me now.
