Why Take Your Own Holiday Photos When We’ll Do It For You?

My family has 1 holiday photo that I can remember. While it would be easy to blame that on my parents, the fault probably rests entirely with us rambunctious kids. We simply could not bother to sit still long enough to get one! Think about it: 6 kids + 4 Dogs + 3 Cats = a recipe for disaster when it comes to photo taking. Of course, with Photo Fuse in Windows Live Photo Gallery, getting a great shot isn’t a problem…but it still requires that you get everyone together in the same space for at least 3 milliseconds.

Picture Perfect Holiday

However, if you just can’t get everyone to the house months in advance to take a photo consider this: Microsoft Windows and Southwest Airlines have joined together to bring you a second year of free holiday photos! This December, Picture Perfect Holiday will be available at 21 airports nationwide as a chance for you and your loved ones to snap holiday photos with Santa. For those of you looking to get photos sooner, starting November 18, Santa and his elves will also be making an appearance at 3 malls in Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. If you happen to be flying this holiday season or slogging through the malls, save time and energy by taking your family photos while you’re on the move. Once you get your photo taken, you’ll have a chance to edit, share, store and print a copy easily using free Windows Live photo-editing tools.

Not so into the photo idea but love a freebie? Today we’re announcing our Holiday Sweepstakes for daily a chance to win Windows 7 PCs or the grand prize of a year of travel on Southwest Airlines. For more information, visit
