It’s time now for the inaugural Christmas Post of Awesome just in time for the close of 2010. It’s been an amazing year for me, I’ll post about that in time for the New Year, so for now I thought it fitting to post some links of Christmas Awesome I’ve come across in the last few weeks.
Enjoy! And May you and all your loved ones have a happy and joyful Christmas.

Quite Possibly what it might be like if the 1st Century story took place in the 21st Century… Christmas 2.0
Post of Note – Santa Tracker
This is the US Military official Santa Tracker – bookmark the page so you can check in on Christmas Even and see just how far around the Globe Santa has to go to get to your place!
Surf’s Up – Advent Calendar
OK, I’ll confess to a shade of self promotion here and point you (if you’ve not already seen it) to the Advent Calendar I trot out every year – I still love it!! It’s becoming a tradition with my Australian Family it’s kinda cute that they get a kick out of it still …
Christmas Cross Stitch Countdown
Listening to – Ultra Lounge, Christmas Cocktails Volume 1.
I really can’t get excited about the cheesy/tired/trite versions of Christmas Carols that get blasted over sound systems in shopping malls, and dang it, even in some churches, every year. I was introduced to Ultra Lounge a few years ago and THIS is my go to Christmas CD, no, not much that’s traditional about it at all and it TOTALLY appeals to my retro loving little heart… check it out, it’s gorgeous!!! Ultra Lounge, Christmas Cocktails Volume 1.
Reading – The Nativity – Luke Chapter 2
I can’t go past this chapter of the Bible at this time of the year; don’t freak out, it won’t kill you to read one chapter just as a reminder of how this whole this Christmas thing got started – it’s in straightforward English too…
Luke Chapter 2, The Message
Image(s) of Awesome – The Big Picture – Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas.
I love the Big Picture, a regularly updated gallery of stunning Pictures – here’s their Christmas 2010 version… Enjoy, and go all the way to the end, that last one’s my favourite The Big Picture – Christmas 2010
I’m heading out on Monday to see if I can get Annie Lennox’s Christmas album (I’m just so not an ipod / itunes person – cd’s all the way with me!) … it sounds fabulous!
Did you get it? How does it sound??
I had a big downloading sesh for some new Christmas music last weekend; so over listening to The Best Christmas Alubm in the World Ever for the fourth year in a row!
Love Christmas Cocktails! Duly downloaded :)
Nice one Fi – check out some of the other Ultra Lounge stuff on iTunes. So groovy!
And a Happy and Joyous Christmas to you too.
I’m off to check out the links…
Thanks Ian, Merry Christmas to you and your family – may 2011 be an incredible year for you all.
