Christmas is hands-on and we found a site â€” Kaboose.comâ€™s Christmas Crafts â€” that will show you just how hands-on it can be. It is another winner of our Site of the Week honors. Technically, Kaboose.com isnâ€™t a Christmas site. It is a family/Mom portal featuring a plethora of parenting, schooling and family material. But we found the Christmas Craft section to be quite compelling. For example, the Christmas Card Box is an idea utilizing last yearâ€™s Christmas cards. Itâ€™s a fun project that makes festive use of great materials that is easy to make. In the build up to the season we love sites like this. They provide inexpensive, easy-to-accomplish projects that help promote the spirit of the season.
If there is one thing the Internet is great for it is the rise in popularity of self-publishing. Never in the history of man has it been easier for one to get their opinions and passions broadcast to an international audience. For a topic like Christmas, the Internet is the ultimate sharing device. Take Christmas Town.net, for example. Using popular blog software featuring a simple interface, a clean design and a festive spirit we get a site like this for easy holiday reading. The site is entirely made up of â€œfree articlesâ€ produced by website operators and vendors using the engine of the Internet to drive publicity for their sites and wares. That makes some of the features at Christmas-Town just a little suspect. But if you can get past the obvious bias, youâ€™ll find nuggets of holiday information. It makes of easy holiday reading and we think it is worth a look. Â
