Only 4 days until Christmas! This year, we’re spending Christmas with Cent’s family in Georgia, my parents and sister are in the Philippines, and my extended family is in both California and Massachusetts. Sometimes it’s tough to be away from immediate family during the holidays, but thanks to technology, it’s made it leaps and bounds easier.
Thanks to Google Hangouts, you can have a conference video chat for free! Our family plans on hooking up on Christmas sometime to “hangout” and celebrate and exchange Secret Santa gifts.
Yesterday, we did a trial run with my sister in the Philippines and my friend Krystle in California. So fun! Google Hangouts also enables you to play with effects such as crowns and mustaches for extra silliness.
