On the ninth day before Christmas, PBW found for me:
Nine Holiday Helpers
1. God Bless Us, Everyone -- if you're feeling Scroogish, you might try reading Project Gutenberg's free download of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
2. FaLaLaLaLa -- Christmas Caroler is a free Christmas carols e-book with printable song sheets, links to sheet music for each song and midi files.
3. Festive Food -- Get delicious holiday recipes, hints and more over at AllRecipes.com's Christmas Collection page.
4. Listen & Help the Hungry -- GenerousPour.com offers a free mp3 Christmas song download by Dean Martin, Nat King Cole or Corinne Bailey Rae (registration required, but each song downloaded generates $1 to fight hunger.)
5. Get Crafty -- if you're into handmade gifts, find something to make for everyone on your list over at Craftown.com's free Christmas craft projects page.
6. Got yarn? -- Craftown also has a nice page of free Christmas crochet patterns, many with photos.
7. Choose Your Romantic Christmas Adventure -- (and write new chapters) with PersonalizedLetter.com's online interactive Christmas romance (fun idea, actually.)
8. Sing to Me -- The HolidaySpot.com has a free collection of Hanukkah music for download.
9. Free Reads -- Tonto Press UK has a free 92 page e-book of Christmas short stories by a number of their authors; to download in .pdf format click here (I thought this was an excellent way for a publisher to give something to the readers that's free and showcases new talent.)
