I didn’t know what Sukkot was, but I know much more now.  Sukkot-A-Palooza is a new infographic design from Mike Wirth and David Silverberg that tries to help explain the Jewish holiday of Sukkot to the rest of us.

Sometimes call the Jewish Thanksgiving, Sukkot, the Feast of Booths and Tabernacles, is a celebration of the harvest and autumnal season.  Families build a Sukkah, a basic walled structure, to eat, pray and sometimes even sleep in for seven days.

I’ll admit I still don’t really understand Sukkot, but I know way more than I did before.  How many people actually build Sukkahs?  I don’t recall ever seeing one before.  The design is very text-heavy, but it is very educational.

The History of Memorial Day #infographic


Appropriate and timely for the holiday today in the U.S., imortuary.com brings us I Remembered A Vet Today infographic about the history and ways to commemorate Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is commemorated in many ways to show respect for those who have died for serving our country.  Whether visiting a national cemetary or gathering with friends and family, take time to participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. local time to observe a moment of silence.

Easter by the Numbers #infographic


A fun infographic from DegreeSearch.org, Easter by the Numbers takes an amusing look at chocolate Easter bunnies and other candy during the Easter holidy.

Here in the United States, we eat soooo much candy at Easter. Delicious chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, Peeps, jelly beans and more. It doesn’t take a healthcare degree to figure out what all that candy means for our bodies. If you want to keep the pounds off, stay away from the basket. But if you don’t care about the pounds, try the Cadbury Mini Eggs. Mmmm, delicious.

Can you find all 18 chocolate Easter bunnies in the infographic?

What Is The Deal With Hanukkah Anyway? is a new infographic by Mike Wirth.  Just in time for the holidays, this one does a good job of explaining the basics and some of the numbers behind it.

Christmas by the Numbers!

BillShrink.com presents this holiday infographic, Christmas by the Numbers, visualizing the decline in holiday spending in the U.S. and some other fascinating holiday figures.  Click the link to see the high-resolution version.
‘Tis the season for Christmas trees, lights and gifts, and in the past that has also meant the season of outrageous spending. While the holidays may not be cheap, hard times sometimes call for desperate measures and drastic budget changes. Here’s a look at the hard facts and numbers of this most wonderful time of the year.
Merry Christmas from Cool Infographics!


The Holiday Economy

Our Present Economy is a look at holiday spending from 1997-2007 with some specifics about 2007.  It doesn't say explicitly, but I believe this is for the U.S. only.  From GOOD Magazine, this Good Sheet was available at Starbucks during the holiday season in 2008.

I wonder how 2009 compares?


Holiday Cliché Find-It Graphic from Xplane.com

Check out this fun Holiday Cliché Find-It graphic from Xplane.com!  It's available as a 11x17" sized PDF so you can view or print it out.

“Get your ducks in a row” so that you aren't “caught with your pants down” this holiday season! After all, it can be like “herding cats” out there this time of year, and you definitely don't want to get stuck “in the weeds.” So, go ahead and take a minute to “shop this around,” “see if it sticks” and celebrate from a “10,000-foot view.” It's all “blue sky” from here on out, nothing but a “win-win situation!”

Think you know your business clichés? Find where they're hiding in this holiday XPLANATiON™ created by your friends at XPLANE! Just click the image above to download the tabloid-sized 11x17" PDF.
