Get the Grinch Out - Even if You're at Work!

Posted on December 4, 2008 12:19 PM by Leann
OK. Picture it. You’re at work, you’re tired and you have a mountain of things to do. Not feeling the holiday spirit, right? I know the suggestions in the last post are not a possibility right now so here is a short list of fun websites to visit to help get the Grinch out! They’re quick little hits that provide just the right amount of distraction to leave you feeling festive and ready to tackle that next project. Just because you’re at work doesn’t mean you can’t revel in the fun of the season.

Track Santa – Each year, NORAD helps families track Santa’s progress. It’s fun to do for all ages. http://www.noradsanta.org/en/home.html

Office Max, the office supply people, came out with this a few years ago and I still find it funny today. Make an elf of yourself (and your family) and send it to friends to make them laugh. http://www.elfyourself.com/

Making a gingerbread house takes talent and patience, both of which I have in random, varying quantities. But to make on online, no problem. http://www.billybear4kids.com/holidays/christmas/ginger/IEStickers.html

Star in your own little Christmas story. Fill in the blanks and let the adventure begin. http://www.blackdog.net/cgi-bin/story/xmas.cgi

This one I think is my favorite. Wander around the North Pole. You never know what or who you’ll run across. More fun for all ages and fun to keep coming back to. http://www.northpole.com/

SO, have a little fun, be a little silly and share these kooky sites with your friends so the can get the Grinch out to. And if you’re boss catches you, don’t blame it on us! Alright, ‘nuff said. Now, get back to work! I’m off to go eat a truffle.

I had forgotten all about NORAD!!  My newphews are too old now, sadly, but maybe my godson (my "nephew" at heart) will be old enough to start to appreciate it.

The elf yourself thing goes without saying though Smile  

Thanks for this list, it will keep me entertained today - home sick instead of at the office, so definitely had a case of the grinch.  Smile

I like to stir my coffee with a candycane - maybe bring some Christmas cookies to pass at work.  You could even set up a secret santa program for your office.  I think the thing to remember is to enjoy every minute, we never get the day back once its done.
