Heineken has created a Christmas tree powered by social media at Clarke Quay. The 11m high Heineken Social Christmas Tree is made up of 48 LCD screens and designed to broadcast Christmas greetings exchanged on Facebook.
From now till 26 December, visit the Facebook App at socialtree.sg to send a festive greetings to your Facebook friends. You can see the creation come to life in a digital video showcase on the actual tree sculpture.
A video recording of the broadcast will be send to you and shared with your friends on Facebook as well.
For the past 28 years, PNC Wealth Management measure the cost of Christmas by calculating the total cost of all the things in the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. It is the cumulative cost of all the gifts when you count each repetition in the song so it reflects the cost of 364 gifts.
This year, the total cost of Twelve Days of Christmas is $24,263.18, up 3.5% from last year.
I’ve always enjoyed watching the PNC Christmas Price Index. It gives you the rough sense of the inflation and supply/demand. And they put in quite a lot of effort on this fun project. Check out the behind the scene video.
Everyone like to associate the colour white with Christmas. It probably makes more sense in countries with winter. Here in Singapore, Christmas seems grey with all the rain pouring down.
Nevertheless, handset makers would still use this opportunity to roll out white colour phones. Personally, I’m not a fan of white colour phones. But I know I’m the rare minority. There’s lots of white phone lovers out there.
So here are some of the white phones hitting our shelves for this holiday season.
