Yes, we’ve again made it through the breathtaking days of christmas during which we celebrated the birthday of Jesus Christ (just to remind those of you who wondered).

I spread the word before on Sam & Max “Ice Station Santa”. It’s really cool. And the even cooler wackos at Telltale have created a heart-warming little movie in which “Sam and Max nearly save christmas”. Look out for Spoilers!!
Another googlesque approach in Web 2.0 application was the tracking of Santa which has been done by the NORAD for decades now to provide children around the world (and of course interested grown ups) with the exact location of Santa Claus. Google supported this project with layers on Google Earth and Maps as well as videos on YouTube.
My Christmas Card

In Germany there is one tv show that’s crucial to the last day of the year.

I understand it’s cult in other countries, too. So if I don’t manage to post before 31st, here you are…
