Yes, it’s a very special day. For millions of people around the world, it’s a time to gather and celebrate. From a converged communications perspective, there’s even more to think about when Christmas rolls around. For example, look at the picture of the tree above. It takes a fraction of a second to recognize this as a Christmas tree with bright lights and ornaments. But this picture also has definite connotations of togetherness, joy, celebration, and other emotions that we automatically associate with Christmas. That’s right: even on December 25, we can’t escape a semiotics analysis.
Very best wishes for a Merry Christmas for all converged communicators.
