A Holiday Spectacle

I love Christmas.  I love the music, the spirit, the lights, the decorations.  Christmas just makes my heart feel full and happy.

I would have my house decked out for Christmas right now if I wasn't married to Ebeneezer Scrooge.

While shopping recently I came upon a really cool product called Holiday Specs 3D Glasses and though I was so very tempted to to grab them all up, I resisted (knowing I would need to spend that money on Christmas Presents instead).

Less than two weeks later I was given the opportunity to product test those VERY items!  And I can't wait to use them through the holiday season, too!

In exchange for a fair and honest review, I received an assortment of paper 3D glasses, a set of plastic frames, and a string of multi-colored Christmas lights to test them with.

When you look at Christmas Lights (or any bright light) through these 3D glasses, it changes the shape of the light.  We viewed reindeer, elves, snowman, stars, angels and a variety of other Holiday Themed objects.  These are especially great for the kiddos!

My 10 year old (who's at the age where he has to pretend like anything his parents like is completely lame) had to try on each of the glasses.  I put the plastic frames on my 8 month old and raised them up and down so he could see the normal lights and then the reindeer lights.

I've tried on all ten of the designs offered, and while they're each cute and fun I think my favorites are the Christmas Stars, the Reindeer, and the Gingerbread Men.  I did my best to take a picture of how some of them appear through the glasses.  I'm not fancy enough to be able to shoot them well with my regular camera, so these were just shot with my iPhone which will explain the image quality.  

I think these are such a fun idea, I can't wait to use them when everyone has their homes decorated for the holidays this year!

If you're interested in trying these Holiday Specs, head over to HolidaySpecs.com and pick out your favorite design today!  And check out their other products, too!  They have a variety that includes Firework Glasses, Eclipse Viewers, and Wild Eyes Animal Glasses.
