Blogs and Social Networks Christmas Blog Coolies

We found some super Christmas Blog sites out there (quite a few here at Googles Blogspot :) and we wanted to let you know what you can find at some of the great Christmas blog sites.

The first site to mention isn't a "Christmas blog" in itself, but they have an outstanding post on 10 Fantastic Christmas Inspired Tutorials that we thought very cool :)

MyInkBlog has a post of tutorial links for you to create your own Christmas Wallpaper, Creative Christmas cards, Christmas Greetings Postcards, Illustrations, Glittery Postcards, a tutorial link for drawing Christmas Trees, Santa Hats, Ornament Balls, and Christmas Backgrounds. Make hand designed Christmas cards for your friends and family with this handy link guide to some great tutorials.

The is a blog for Students and Teachers of Spanish. The Spanish Christmas calendar is more than worth the trip :) Here is but one of the interesting facts held in this site: "In Spain, it's January 6th that children receive their presents left by the Three kings (Los, Reyes, and Magos) rather than Father Christmas or Santa Claus." Nativity scenes are widely used in Spain and often brilliant in design. is really a 2007 Christmas blog site but very informative. With posts on How to Say Merry Christmas in different languages, Christmas Prayers, and a link to the GatewayToJesus (which houses some incredible Christmas Blog Stories. Link to that has a great representation of the Christmas Story with an awesome graphic image to go with this post. is a Christmas Blog Site full of Christmas History, Traditions, Wallpapers, Games, Lyrics, and much more. The Christmas History includes the First Christmas Card, Christmas at the White House, Chronology of American Christmas, and History of the Ornament. Here is a bit of this history here: In Germany, some people hide a pickle shaped ornament very well in the tree (hidden last) on Christmas morning whomever is the first child to spot this pickle gets an extra surprise gift!
