On the first day of Christmas, my true love

gave to me a partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas, my true love

gave to me two turtledoves and a partridge in a pear tree


Play a song called “12 Days of Christmas” for this Christmas. The blessing music reveals the warm sound in the air, which means the Christmas is coming.

I have received some “Christmas gifts” recently. Today, let me open the first gift today.


Check how to put Arduino gamepad into the Christmas greeting card


In December of a year, to send the Christmas regards to the customer, Kerve Creative, a British agent decided to do something different from traditional holiday greeting card. So, they made an interactive greeting card with Arduino. Connect the USB interface of greeting card to the computers, select MAC or PC, and then this card would be changed into a game controller with complete functions.


This Arduino drove the Christmas card to play a Christmas song. Then, the customers were invited to play the small game Hacky Xmas. They needed to use the controller to help Santa Claus cut a Christmas tree and collect game credits while avoiding the decorations falling off from the Christmas tree.
