Yes, I know. I have a calendar on my phone. And Outlook keeps me constantly reminded of where I’m supposed to be, when. But I’m a fool for paper, so I still insist on having non-electronic versions to keep me company.
The reprieve – for those of us who had every intention of sending out holiday cards… but didn’t – is that wishing friends and family a very happy new year will do in a pinch. (As always, click to shop)
I’m hopeful that everyone out there is still basking in glow of holiday happiness! Need a little boost to perpetuate the sensation? How about the world’s first 24-hour video? Catchy little tune with randoms dancing their hearts out sprinkled modestly with celebrity cameos. And you can skip around to watch different “times” if you don’t happen to have 24 continuous hours to spare.

I’m speechless. Now, if this was CGI or some such thing, that would be one thing. But this lights display is the real deal; painstakingly choreographed to “Carol of the Bells”. Yes, this is somebody’s actual house, decked out in 45,000 lights; all choreographed via 176 channels of computer control. Ridiculous and obsessive? Maybe. But it’s definitely a showstopper of astounding ambition and seasonal spirit! Merry, merry Christmas.
The follow-up from last year’s “Beet Cake” (missed it? click HERE.), a delectable video recipe for holiday cider from the creative minds of Tiger In A Jar. Looks like the perfect beverage to warm up with tonight!
I’m sitting here completely baffled by the fact that Christmas is only a few short days away. Time to start baking those cookies so mom and I can distribute our annual cookie plates to the neighbors! So, today – a bit of cheeky baking music to set the mood for our kitchen antics. Sleigh Ride by Crystal Theory from the album Christmas Chillout, 2005.
