Free Holiday Music
The internet is packed with websites that offer free holiday music. For example, every year, Amazon offers 25 free Christmas songs available for download. You can download a different song every day.
In addition, every year Office Depot offers, Elf Yourself. With Elf Yourself, you can create up to 5 elves. All you need to do is upload your picture/pictures and the website will do the rest. You will find yourself dancing around in an elf costume to numerous Christmas songs.
Free Holiday Screensavers
I love, love, love holiday-themed screensavers. No matter which holiday you celebrate, there are tons of holiday-themed screensavers available on the World Wide Web. You can start on Google and do a search for “free holiday screensavers.” Some other search options include “free Christmas screensavers”, “free Hanukah screensavers” and “free Kwanza screensavers”. If you don’t celebrate any particular holiday, you can also search for “free winter screensavers”. This is also a very helpful search if you want to keep the screensaver on for a few months instead of just one or two months.
Free Holiday Desktop Backgrounds
Basically the same advice from above also applies to holiday-themed desktop backgrounds. The only difference would be that you would substitute the word background for screensaver.
Free Holiday Crafts
What better way to spend time with the kids and get in the holiday spirit than to make some holiday crafts? I have a few sites that I absolutely love. One of them is AllCrafts.com. As soon as you go to their page, there is a button in the center for holiday crafts. If you would like to make some crafts on your own (without the help from your little ones), they also have free holiday craft patterns.
The ideas are endless. Some other ideas on holiday freebies that you can find on the internet include:
*Free Christmas Poems
*Free Holiday eCards
No matter which ideas you choose, remember that there is so much more to the holiday season than spending money on gifts and presents.
