Send a personalised carol to friends with Microsoft and give an app this Christmas

Fancy sending a personalised holiday greeting this year? Microsoft is providing you the means to do so with a special carol, dedicated to the person of your choice. With Jingle Bells or Silent Night to choose from, you're also able to pick a free app to bundle with the merry gift and everything will be taken care of for you. All you're left with is a link to share and you're done.

The interactive web page lets you provide your name (you can upload a mug shot), the recipient, what message you'd like to send and the entered data will then be rendered as a festive video. It's super cheesy, but rather awesome at the same time. If you'd like to see an example, check out this little treat from the WPC team.

Be sure to hit "Send it!" to share the greeting you create with others, as well as the link for them to create their own. Pretty cool.
