Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
A year off, but the sentiment remains.
Every year I collect the links that’ll work best when a particular holiday rolls around. This year, I found a couple to my liking.
Those of you willing to kill a couple hours in your day would do worse than to play around with the 2010 Christmas Price Index. Trust me, it’s far more fun than it sounds. Thanks to The Infomancer for the link.
There were also many fine videos to partake of this year. Example A: How to wrap your cat.
Example B: Something for the Rudolph / Sting fans out there (you know who you are).
Example C: When one is a New Yorker, you are legally obligated to hear this song at least once during the holiday season. It’s a terrible video. Just awful. But the music more than makes up for it.
Thanks to Dan for the link.
Finally, for those libraries out there with a sense of humor and an overabundance of green books, a wholly originally kind of tree to put up for the season:
Thanks to AL Direct for the link.
