Easter by the Numbers #infographic

 

A fun infographic from DegreeSearch.org, Easter by the Numbers takes an amusing look at chocolate Easter bunnies and other candy during the Easter holidy.

Here in the United States, we eat soooo much candy at Easter. Delicious chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, Peeps, jelly beans and more. It doesn’t take a healthcare degree to figure out what all that candy means for our bodies. If you want to keep the pounds off, stay away from the basket. But if you don’t care about the pounds, try the Cadbury Mini Eggs. Mmmm, delicious.

Can you find all 18 chocolate Easter bunnies in the infographic?

Thanks to Matt for sending in the link!

What Is The Deal With Hanukkah Anyway? [infographic]

What Is The Deal With Hanukkah Anyway? is a new infographic by Mike Wirth.  Just in time for the holidays, this one does a good job of explaining the basics and some of the numbers behind it.

I love that Mike gave credit to “My Nana” in the sources!  Great job Mike.

Christmas by the Numbers!



BillShrink.com presents this holiday infographic, Christmas by the Numbers, visualizing the decline in holiday spending in the U.S. and some other fascinating holiday figures.  Click the link to see the high-resolution version.
‘Tis the season for Christmas trees, lights and gifts, and in the past that has also meant the season of outrageous spending. While the holidays may not be cheap, hard times sometimes call for desperate measures and drastic budget changes. Here’s a look at the hard facts and numbers of this most wonderful time of the year.
Merry Christmas from Cool Infographics!

The Holiday Economy



Our Present Economy is a look at holiday spending from 1997-2007 with some specifics about 2007.  It doesn't say explicitly, but I believe this is for the U.S. only.  From GOOD Magazine, this Good Sheet was available at Starbucks during the holiday season in 2008.

I wonder how 2009 compares?

Holiday Cliché Find-It Graphic from Xplane.com



Check out this fun Holiday Cliché Find-It graphic from Xplane.com!  It's available as a 11x17" sized PDF so you can view or print it out.

“Get your ducks in a row” so that you aren't “caught with your pants down” this holiday season! After all, it can be like “herding cats” out there this time of year, and you definitely don't want to get stuck “in the weeds.” So, go ahead and take a minute to “shop this around,” “see if it sticks” and celebrate from a “10,000-foot view.” It's all “blue sky” from here on out, nothing but a “win-win situation!”

Think you know your business clichés? Find where they're hiding in this holiday XPLANATiON™ created by your friends at XPLANE! Just click the image above to download the tabloid-sized 11x17" PDF.
Thanks to Parker at Xplane.com

Send your own Augmented Reality Christmas Cards!



Merry Christmas from Cool Infographics!

What better way to share your Christmas wishes than with augmented reality?!?  You can send your own AR Christmas cards courtesy of arwishes.com.  You can choose from an assortment of animated images that will appear on screen when you friends and family hold up your Christmas card in front of their computer's webcam.



The cards are printed with the marker, disguised as a holiday image.  In this case, the marker is obviously the Christmas Tree.

A number of companies did this last year, sending out cards with an AR marker printed as part of the card, and a number of them are still online.  You can also print out a card from the sites to see the image yourself.  There will probably be a few more this holiday season as well, but here are some videos from last year's AR cards and links to sites if you want to experience them yourself.
