"Send Holiday Cheer" Merrily Makes Its Way Through the Web This Holiday Season

REXBURG, ID--(Marketwire - November 23, 2008) - Send Holiday Cheer, a free interactive online greeting powered by Oddcast, can be found at just in time for this holiday season. The greeting can be customized with photos and then shared with family and friends via email, blogs and social websites. It is promoted by Pear Tree Greetings, a top online retailer of affordable photo Christmas cards, as a way to add an element of entertainment to the often-hectic holiday season.

"We wanted to create an interactive way for people to connect with family and friends this Christmas. If you like to share a laugh and want to create some buzz, then I suggest giving it a whirl. It's simple, it's personal, it's easy to share and best of all it's FREE," said Christy Bode, Lead Marketing Specialist for Pear Tree Greetings.

Holiday Cheer allows its users to upload five photos to different cheerleader bodies and choose from three cheers and three backgrounds. The backgrounds include a festive football field, a decorated basketball court and the snowy outdoors. The animated greeting can then be viewed and shared.

"One of my coworkers asked his friends to send him pictures of their dogs and he made a hilarious cheer. We couldn't stop laughing. I encourage everyone to give it a try. The possibilities are endless," said Bode. To view the Holiday Cheer starring dog photos, go to: Dogs Send Holiday Cheer
