This page is a work in progress, and a bit of an experiment! I am thinking of it like a time capsule for Christmas of 2006... What were the favorite Christmas Gifts of 2006, pictures of Christmas 2006, significant ads...etc. It won't really be finished until Christmas is over, but no worries! I am open to suggestions, so feel free to send me your ideas of what makes this Christmas uniquely that of 2006!
