Christmas is one of the most important festivals in the Christian calendar, and other religions have celebrations around this time too. No matter what your religion or belief, whether you are celebrating or simply having another weekend, there are some wonderful sites around the internet that can bring a smile to your face… either because they are interactive and engrossing, or because they are examples of good design.

If you find yourself twiddling your thumbs this weekend, you might like to waste some time on these great, festive sites.

Websites Dedicated to the Christmas Holidays

Google Santa Tracker

This is the second or third year that Google have produced this interactive site that is, in fact, an advent calendar. Each day from 1st December until 25th December a new activity opens up, which will be a game, a video or an educational activity. A great way to waste some time this festive season!
