From ABC Family:
Burbank, Calif. (December 2, 2009) – ABCFamily.com gets into the holiday spirit in support of ABC Family’s annual “25 Days of Christmas” programming event. This year the site offers an abundance of rich, interactive applications and features designed to get viewers into the holiday spirit.
Once again this year visitors to the site can share holiday greetings with its popular interactive “Snowglobe” application. This popular feature allows users to upload photos and choose holiday-themed backgrounds to create their very own unique “shakable” snowglobe which can be e-mailed to friends and family and embedded on social networking pages.
Fans of the popular ABC Family original series 10 Things I Hate About You and Make It or Break It can watch series’ stars guess the lyrics of your favorite classic holiday carols in the new short-form video series, “What’s Next.”
Throughout the month, ABCFamily.com will make available over a dozen holiday movie titles in their online video player, including the ABC Family original holiday movies Snow, Snow 2, Holiday in Handcuffs, Santa Baby 2: Christmas Maybe and Snowglobe. Beginning December 15, online viewers can host their own holiday viewing parties, allowing them to watch online with friends and family.
Other special “25 Days of Christmas” features include a personalized Holiday Greeting Ticker on the site’s homepage, where users can leave special messages for friends and family; an embeddable Countdown to Christmas clock widget; a holiday arcade filled with fun, casual holiday-themed games; and an Activity Center which includes themed coloring pages and a virtual stocking stuffer application which allows users to send virtual stockings to one another filled with personalized gift ideas.
ABC Family has also teamed with Pandora this year to create a custom “25 Days of Christmas” station on Pandora.com, where listeners can enjoy songs from the network’s “25 Days of Christmas” soundtrack as well as other classic holiday music. Additionally, the channel’s official “25 Days of Christmas” Facebook page has over 325,000 fans and offers an ongoing opportunity for viewers to share their favorite holiday shows & traditions.
