One of the busiest and most stressful times of the year is the holiday season, and you can only enjoy it if you plan everything well ahead, and if you are able to take care of everything that the holidays bring. You will have to cook dinner, send out cards and think of creative gifts for family and friends. Besides all the stress and planning, the holiday season is also a fun time, and there are lots of apps for the people that like to get into the holiday spirit. So, if you are interested in learning about some holiday apps that will get you through the season as well as add more fun to it, please read below:
1. A Charlie Brown Christmas
If you’re American, you’ve probably been watching A Charlie Brown Christmas ever since you were a little kid. A lot of adults still watch them every year, and the show’s cuteness makes for a lot of smiles and laughs. This app contains the original 1965 dialogues of the classic Christmas story, in the original voice of Charlie Brown, by Peter Robbins. The app is fun for kids, as well as for parents, and it contains some features that are especially interesting for young children. Such as decorating your own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree and participate in contests to unlock rewards.
2. My Christmas Tree
The title says it all: with this Windows Phone app you can decorate your own Christmas tree, which you can then set as your wallpaper on your phone, or share with friends. It is even possible to copy and paste your tree over your already existing lockscreen wallpaper, or to put it on one of your personal pictures, so that it looks like the tree is in your room or in the garden, but the app also has its own backgrounds. The trees and decorations are hand-drawn by a professional artist, and you can decorate your tree however you like, to make it look unique.
3. Dr Seuss Camera – The Grinch Edition
Nothing puts you in the holiday-mood the way Dr Seuss does with his heart-warming Christmas story, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. With the Dr Seuss Camera – The Grinch Edition, you can choose between a variety of original Dr Seuss drawings, or use your own pictures and ‘Grinch them up’. The app features over 20 holiday cards that you can send to your friends and family member, or you can take a picture of yourself and copy/paste it next to the Grinch characters. You can customize your cards by adding different borders and stamps, and you can rotate and scale the stamps.
Another important thing about the holidays is what the food: you probably want to do something extra, and maybe you are cooking for a lot of people and you want to try to be original still, and not eat turkey every time. Epicurious is an app from the award winning food website Epicurious.com, and as you expect you can find a lot of good foods on there. Epicurious has over 28,000 professional food recipes that are taken from famous cooking magazines and leading restaurants. So you can definitely find a great and original recipe on there.
Hopefully these apps bring you some extra joy and relief for the holiday season. If you know of other great apps that have to do with the holidays, please let us know!
