We’ve created an Animoto video to help with this clue:

Since we created the Festive 24 Things Flickr group earlier this month, many people have been adding new photos which have really helped get me in the festive mood. Please keep them coming, it’s great to have somewhere to see lots of festive photos!

We promised that we would use some of your photos to create a future ‘thing’ and the time is now ready to show you what we made. We used Animoto to create a video featuring some of the photos from the group. Unfortunately, the free version of Animoto only gives 30 seconds and up to 12 photos (less if you include text) so we couldn’t feature everyone.

It’s really easy to use – you decide what template you want, then add your photos and any text you would like to include, choose your soundtrack and settings (you can adjust the speed if you wish), and Animoto does the rest for you. It only takes a few minutes and you have your video ready to share (there’s also an option to export to YouTube which makes it easy to add it there). I was really impressed with how simple it was, and here is the result:

Many thanks to everyone for contributing photos – those who made it into the video include Katy Wrathall, Chrissy Lewis, Owen Stephens, Rochdale Library Service, Ben Elwell, Ian Clark, Katie Birkwood, and Andrew Dawson.

Welcome to Festive 24 Things, originally an advent calendar based on the same idea as the 23 Things programme.

Join Damyanti, Jo and Trudi in their festive quiz through useful (and hopefully fun!) online resources. Each day there will be a cryptic clue to the title of a Christmas carol (or song) and a tool which will also give you clues. At the end of the 24 days, we’ll ask you to submit your responses for each day and we’ll draw a winner
