Christmas already? Again? Yet? Weekender likes to be ahead of the game and always strives to bring you entertainment news and information in a timely manner. So here it is: a novel Christmas gift idea. Christmas may still be two months off – but if you have family and friends living overseas, you’ll want to start thinking about getting those Christmas cards in the post fairly soon or they may not get there on time.
This year, why not send a really original Christmas card – which, incidentally, doubles as a gift?
The Barefoot Man and friends have come up with a rather different Christmas card this year: It’s the 14-song Christmas card.
And no, it’s not one of those cards that emits a tinny little tune when you open in up. Here’s how it works: Inside each 8”x 6” Christmas card there is a separate download card which is about the size of a credit card. Each card has a different access code. Mail the card to your family, friends or customers and they can visit the designated website included on the card and then use their access code to download the entire 14 song Christmas Album to an iPod, computer, iPad , or other mobile device, at no charge to them.
It’s the ideal way to share some of the sounds of a Caribbean Christmas with friends and families in colder climes.
The 14 song album includes such Cayman classics as Santa got a Sunburn, Andy Martin’s Old Time Cayman Christmas, Silent Night all Day Long, Christmas Island, Christmas Feeling, Christmas comes around much more than you, I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus… and plenty more.
It’s the ideal gift from the tropics and it needn’t even cost you more than sending a regular card.
Cards come in packs of six, with six envelopes and six 14 song download cards for $35.
