Merry Christmas, Internet

Merry Christmas!
Christmas is often spent with family and friends, participating in traditional seasonal activities. Online resources can go a long way in helping revelers celebrate, providing holiday recipes, ideas for decorating, Christmas music, e-cards, and more.

I thought some would enjoy a few direct links to some of these resources, and only wish I had compiled this brief list sooner. I guess you can consider this my 2015 Christmas gift to you all.

While there are a number of streaming music channels, there has been so much turmoil in that market lately that I was not sure which to share. Instead, I found this two-hour Christmas music 2015 video on YouTube. I'm not sure what constitutes "current" Christmas music, but there you have it. If it includes Justin Bieber, I apologize (or you're welcome, whatever).

Between traveling, waiting for meals to cook, and trying to ignore obnoxious friends and family members, everyone could use a little holiday TV programming. Our taste in Christmas movies may be a bit rough for some, but there is a lot to be had in streaming Christmas entertainment this year. One of the best is from the new Hulu show, Difficult People. If more traditional programming is your thing, this user-created YouTube playlist might help.

I realize I have not provided much in the way of holiday guides in recent years (the last one was in 2010), so I will try to do better in this regard. The Internet changes quickly and often, and there's always new content being added from around the world, so it's probably a good idea to start searching for holiday ideas and links a few months in advance.
