Online Holiday Fun!
There are lots of fun things to do online during the holidays, from listening to an old favorite like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to finding a new recipe - Romanian Zucchini Potato Latkes, perhaps? Here are a few sites to get you started!
Track Santa as he makes his trip around the world on the NORAD Tracks Santa website or app for your mobile phone! Play games, see videos live as Santa circles the globe on Christmas Eve, and refer to the site's FAQ for sleigh specs and answers to questions such as, "When will Santa arrive at my house?"
National Public Radio's Holidays 2011 website is overflowing with holiday cheer! Listen to NPR's favorite holiday stories from years past (no Christmas would be complete without a little bit of David Sedaris's Santaland Diaries), or find a new rendition of a classic Christmas tune. Hanukkah Lights? Check. Holiday Recipes? Check. This site is a veritable smorgasbord of all things festive.
If you're adventurous, you'll love listening to holiday music chosen by Pandora. Just type "Christmas," or "Hanukkah," in the New Station box and Pandora will create a holiday playlist for you!
