18 Ways to Combat Holiday Boredom Online
As fun and exciting as they are, the holidays can also be one of the most boring times of the year. But, don’t fret! Our elves have rounded up 18 different sites that will help to both combat your boredom and also put you in a better holiday spirit. Ho, ho, ho!
Send A Call From Santa – Perhaps our favorite site of the holiday season, Google’s ‘Send A Call From Santa’ is one of the best designed and most comical ways to personalize an actual phone call from Santa to anyone of your choice. The call is free, courtesy of Google Voice.
Portable North Pole – After you’re done sending a call from Santa, go one step further by making your own custom video from Santa Claus. You can choose whether your friend/family member has been naughty or nice, and can customize various things that Santa says to him or her. It’s as entertaining for you as it will be for them.
SantaBot – Don’t want to send a call or video from Santa? Just spend your time chatting with him online. You never know what that crazy old man will say next.
SomeECards – Forgot to send your holiday cards this year? Give them a good laugh with these hilarious e-cards from SomeECards. Also great to post on your friends’ Facebook walls on Christmas day – it’s a much more creative option than a simple “Merry Christmas!” wall post.
LEGO® + Star Wars™ Holiday Greetings – Perhaps the geekiest of the bunch, this site lets you create greeting cards featuring LEGO versions of the Star Wars characters to send to your presumably co-geeky friends. Engineers of the world, rejoice.
