…You can have an 8-Bit Christmas?

8-Bit Jesus

Celebrate the holidays with Doctor Octoroc’s 8-Bit Jesus: Classic Christmas Songs in the Style of Classic NES Games.

Featuring 18 tracks, with titles like Ryu, The Red Nosed Ninja, Super Jingle Bros., O Come, All Ye Vampires, and Have Yourself A Final Little Fantasy, it’s the perfect entertainment for the gamer geek in all of us.

Plus, there are two ways to get the album: Download it for free from his site, or make a small PayPal donation and help him with future recordings, as well as receive a physical copy of the CD by mail sometime in mid January.

…You can be a hand bell hero?

Hand Bell Hero

The VML Agency is celebrating the holidays this year with a few rounds of Hand Bell Hero.

The game is similar to Guitar Hero, and requires you to press keyboard keys in time to the music.

There are three songs, and the controls are rather accurate, so ring in some holiday cheer, and once again become a hero.

…It’s Things Thursday: Jones Soda Holiday Packs?

Jones Soda Holiday Packs

Jones Soda is known for the Turkey and Gravy flavored soda that they put out each year around the holidays, but this year, they’re doing things a bit different, and are introducing a Christmas Pack and a Chanukah Pack to satisfy your strange soda needs.

The Christmas Pack contains Christmas Ham, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog, and Sugar Plum flavored sodas, while the Chanukah Pack contains Latke, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins, and Jelly Doughnut flavored sodas.

They might not be the most appetizing sounding sodas, but you’ve got to try everything once, right?

…It’s Things Thursday: Neiman Marcus Christmas Book?

Neiman Marcus 100 Anniversary Edition Christmas BookIt is Thanksgiving, so I am going to spend some quality time with the family today instead of updating DYH (Plus, you should be spending some quality time with your family today as well instead of reading DYH!) but it is also Thursday, so I do want to at least leave you with something to check out for Things Thursday.

Thus, if you’re already starting to think about what to get those special someones for the holidays, then be sure to check out Neiman Marcus’s Christmas Book.

This year marks their 100th anniversary of the Christmas Book, and The 100 Anniversary Edition is filled with as much gift giving cheer as ever.

Plus, their Fantasy Gifts section is, as always, filled with the gifts that dreams are made of.

From NM edition Lexus IS Fs to personal submarines to classical concerts to an entire rocket racing league franchise, it’s a millionaire’s playground, and you’re invited to take a peak.

Don’t have a seven figure budget?

Don’t worry, the Christmas Book is filled with plenty of gifts for the normal gift giver as well; but it is fun to dream…
