18 16x16 whychristmas is 13 today!

On the 1st November 2000, I clicked the publish button on http://www.whychristmas.com so a local Primary (elementary) school would have a child safe Christmas site where the kids could find out about some Christmas Traditions.

Who knew that 13 years later it would still be here, let alone one of the biggest Christmas info sites out there now! And it's going stronger than ever; numbers for the same period are up 75% this year over last year!!!

I'm so grateful for all the wonderful Christmas people I've met through it.

The site's had a bit of a facelift this year. The first quite big alteration in design since I started it. It should be easier to user than ever and much more mobile friendly.
