The Empire-Tribune recently launched a new feature on its web site. An interactive page has been added to the homepage, offering fun activities and information for young and old alike.

For the little ones, there are games and a place to upload a special letter to Santa. Mom and Dad can get in on the merriment with a section devoted to holiday recipes. And a how-to center is available on the page, geared toward all things festive with suggestions to keep kids busy as the days grow cooler and time spent indoors becomes more necessary.

Be sure to take advantage of the wintry offerings to be found at and join in the count down to Christmas.
