I say enjoy, what I actually mean is tolerate. And by tolerate I mean moan, obviously. I know it's Christmas as since mid November I've been seeing lots of logos with snow on them. Don't you love it, nothing says Christmas like snow. Unless of course, you're an Australian.
As well as snow on logos and brands, now's the time to keep an eye out for that other old favourite, the snowing website. To be fair, I'm seeing less and less of these, but it's still a seasonal treat to wind up on a site and see snow falling. I can feel the chill right off my monitor.
And then there's the seasonal memes. Don't you just love them? If it's not a Christmas meme then it's a round up of the year. And if it's not a round up of the year gone, then it's one of the year to come. Yes, I'm guilty. I've been planning my annual music round-up for one of my other blogs since last January, about a week after I wrote the last one.
We're yet to see much of a real Web 2.0 Christmas movement, and I'm not quite certain how that would work. The first person to spot an over-sized, drop-shadowed RSS button topped with snow gets a free kiss under the mistletoe. Bah Humbug.
