The Calendar includes 25 separate animations, one for each day of December leading up to Christmas. The user simply downloads the Calendar onto their computer and a snow globe icon appears on the desktop. Then each day, with a couple of mouse clicks, a new animation is launched.
"Thousands of customers wrote to us and for many, the calendar had become a daily dose of joy for the whole family," said Hughes-Chamberlain. "We heard stories of extended families living thousands of miles apart yet sharing the daily ritual of watching the day’s animation and then talking or e-mailing with each other about it. Many customers asked us to keep making new Calendars each year so it could become a new family tradition."
Jacquielawson.com’s small team of artists is now hard at work preparing for the autumn release of the 2011 calendar. Last year’s calendar was set in a mythical German village but this year, the team chose London—not because of increased public interest in the UK thanks to the Royal Wedding; that was just a happy accident—but because of the city’s stunning holiday decorations like the giant Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square and the shimmering lights of Regent Street.
