Spreading Holiday Cheer – 2011 HTML5 Advent(ure) Calendars

By | Published: December 15th, 2011

Last year, we had a ton of fun developing our HTML5 Advent(ure) Calendar. It gave us a chance to review, demo, play and test out some of the best HTML5 projects and games on the web. We also met some great people in the process.

If you never had the chance to check out the work, here’s a peek:

 

HTML5 Advent(ure) Calendar

The calendar got some great feedback and even inquiries from folks who wanted to make calendars of their own, so this yea we released the source code.  It’s free to use however you wish, but please link back to us for attribution.

We wanted to share some of the cool calendars that people have created using the source that showcase art, gift ideas, and even pets up for adoption. Great calendars to spread the holiday cheer! check them out:
