Send a Google Maps Xmas Card
A Holiday Message is a neat little WebGL and Google Maps application that lets you create your own Street View Christmas card.
Creating your own holiday message is very easy - you just need to enter your address or, to create an instant message, just share your location with the app. The app then uses the Google Maps Street View of your location to present a short pan around your street before presenting a Christmas greeting on top of the Street View of your location.
Users can change the wording of the Christmas message shown on the card and when they have finished they can grab a link to the card and share it with their friends. Because the app uses WebGL you might need to use Google Chrome.
