Link Roundup: Great Holiday Websites

The web is, of course, a fabulous place to find holiday crafts and recipes. But just for fun, I thought I'd share some of my other favorite internet holiday resources:

First, soundtrack your season at AccuHolidays, where you can find a wide array of seasonal music channels, from classical to rock to Latin to Reggae and more. (I'm listening to the Blue and White Christmas Channel as I write this post!)

If you want to dig deeper into holiday traditions from around the world, you'll find these sites fascinating:

A Search for the Meaning of Christmas

The History Channel's History of Christmas

Christmas Around the World

Christmas Traditions Around the World

Yule in Iceland

Christmas in Norway

If you're a fan of vintage Christmas ornaments, be sure to check out Barbara Brunner-Romer's beautiful and extensive collection. The photography is lovely and you won't believe the variety!

Don't miss the fun cookie decorating over at All Things Christmas! When you're done creating your virtual cookie, you can send it as an egreeting.

...Speaking of fun online toys, Make-a-Flake is delightful.

If you have children at home who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Santa, on Christmas Eve, you can follow his progress around the world live! Norad Tracks Santa kindly provides a running commentary with animation, maps, and fun facts, starting early in the evening.

And finally, kids and parents will also enjoy, where you can send letters to Santa, read and color holiday stories, sing along with Santa karaoke, chat with elves, and download a Good Deeds calendar to help track who's being naughty or nice.

Oh boy, I am really getting

Oh boy, I am really getting in the mood now! Wonderful post. I love that punched tin post also.
