MyChristmas is an all in one holiday app by Talee Talee and it has everything that you need to make your holiday bright. This app is jam packed with whatever you are going to need to take you through Christmas right into the New Year.
When you open MyChristmas and go to the main menu it becomes clear that you are in for a pretty thorough holiday experience. The full list includes: a Christmas Countdown, "A Christmas Carol" eBook, Christmas Carols, Music, Games, Entertainment, New Years, and iChoose Choice.
iChoose is an affiliated app by the same developer that will choose for you should you find yourself feeling indecisive with so many different options at your fingertips. The bad news is that in order to use it you have to go back into the app store and upload it from iTunes as its own app, but the good news is that its free.
To get started in MyChristmas, after you upload iChoose that is, I recommend going straight to Music and choosing a Christmas song to have in the background while you explore what else is available. You are in for a treat here too because unlike some Christmas themed apps, the music in MyChristmas is the real deal. Granted some of the songs aren't as good as others, but give a listen to "Auld Land Syne" or "Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem" and you may be pleasantly surprised.
Once you have chosen a song, just dive right in to the rest of the fun. Christmas Countdown is pretty cute. Along with giving you the days left until Christmas, it also gives your the number of nights as "Sleeps Til Christmas" — which is very important information for the kiddies. You can read from "A Christmas Carol" using the eBook link or play one of the two games available: Snow Solitaire and Christmas Match.
In the Christmas Carol section you can not only check out the lyrics to 17 different Carols, but by pressing the Info* option you will be taken to the Wikipedia page for that Carol. The Entertainment Section has a number of different themed sound effects and visual effects such as Mistletoe that makes kissing sounds when you touch it and Christmas Candle which is just a repeating video of a decorative candle burning.
Finally, the New Years Section has a few things for that special night, namely a video of Fireworks and a Count Down to The New Year.
Whether you are already riding a holiday high or still looking for something to get you in the spirit MyChristmas has everything you need to celebrate the season.
