12 Blogs of Christmas: Watch live reindeer on ReindeerCam and stream famous trees around the world
The 12 Blogs of Christmas, featuring stocking stuffer-sized holiday stories about pop culture and beyond will run each weekday leading up to Christmas Eve. You can find all of them on The Feed blog.
If you're looking for a diversion from doing online holiday shopping at work, or even doing work at work, let the power of the Internet transport you to Christmas scenes around the globe.
The most popular Christmas-themed live stream around is probably the ReindeerCam at thereindeercam.com. You can watch Santa's reindeer live, 24-7 from the "North Pole" (aka Caledonia, Mich.) as they do what reindeer do, which is mostly just lay around in the snow. Tune in at 11 a.m., 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on weekdays, and 6 p.m. on weekends when Santa shows up in full Santa gear to feed the reindeer.
If you're not feeling those deer, the ReindeerCam has some competion since the Como Park Zoo in Minnesota debuted its own live stream of the reindeer there.
If staring at live video of inanimate objects is more your flavor, NBC News has this live stream of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, and sometimes they turn the camera on the ice skating rink (note: I have seen people fall down).
And if you're looking for a more exotic tree, here's a live feed from a tree at a public square in Eger, Hungary.
