Advent Calendar of Various Stuff - FAIL!

Yeah, I failed at that didn't I.

Seems that I forgot about it after day 6.. 
What I should do next time is pre-prepare the whole 24 days and set scheduled publishes.

Oh well.  Here are some festive things to make up for it:

Here is a picture of some polar bears in Minecraft.

Advent Calendar of Various Stuff - Day 5 - Mince



Found this while tidying.

Seriously - 60 recipes for Mince from around the world, including Minced Beef Gateau, as featured on the cover.

Advent Calendar of Various Stuff - Day 1 - Snow in Minecraft

Snow falls in Minecraft above a certain height instead of rain, or at sea level in frosty biomes.
Chilly! 


It can be used to make snowballs (with HILARIOUS consequences) and if you have the right enchantments on your shovel you can dig up whole sheets of it.

As yet I haven't found a way to make a snowman.
