There must have been some magic in that old silk they found...

Merry Christmas, Interweb! Though it's become part of a larger media conglomerate, the Chicago T.V. station famous for Bozo the Clown has dusted off some old footage from its archives. Among the goodies converted to Flash format are a Frosty the Snowman cartoon which inspired a bit of online detective work, as well as a more recent holiday favorite, The Yule Log.

From Finland, the land of the original

Rare Exports, Inc. They deliver the extremely rare original Finnish product to nearly 150 countries every Christmas, exclusively. It's a big download (the small version is 35.5 MB) but that's nothing compared to the patience these hunters must have to catch their prey. [NSFW, via MonkeyFilter.]

Secret Santa

Secret Santa. Previously mentioned here, a year ago. "Got your own Web site? Got an Amazon wishlist? If the answer to both of these is yes, and you like the idea of giving and receiving, you should definitely sign up." Well, it's that time of year again.

Project SANTA

Project SANTA This game wasted a good two hours at work yesterday. It's a flash game, but with 70's gaming appeal. I played it so much I finally found the easter egg, supposedly the site of its "creator." It's on level three, click the moon. A Christmas game with an Easter egg, I dunno.

Enjoy what may be your last royalty-free Christmas dinner...

Enjoy what may be your last royalty-free Christmas dinner... Opinion solicitation: is either extreme right here? Is there a compromise solution that will satisfy both sides? Where do the rest of us (i.e., the food consumers) fit in to this?

Let Jesus bring light into your life.

Let Jesus bring light into your life. No, I mean, literally. Mary, too.

Or just get a tree and be done with it.

Kansas City's Secret Santa

Kansas City's Secret Santa has been handing out cash in hundred-dollar bills to needy individuals and random people during the Christmas season for the past twenty-one years. He's completely anonymous, preferring to give joy without getting any credit. He tries to find people with specific needs and surprises them in their homes or at their jobs with the cash they need. He gives out well over ten thousand dollars every year.

Christmas decorations too soon sparks vandals.

Christmas decorations too soon sparks vandals. At least in the states we have usually have until after Thanksgiving (Nov 27th I think) before we see anything come up. This year I started seeing stuff right after Halloween.
