CHRISTMAS is usually a time of joy and laughter, and to spread the festive cheer we offered some fabulous prizes in our Christmas video competition.

Readers sent us their own Christmas video, or a link to their favourite Christmas video on YouTube. The winner was "A Christmas chihuahua greeting" receiving a $300 Coles Myer gift card, while the two runners-up were "Merry Christmas from Brisbane" a
nd "Mackay Christmas 2008 Accident" which each receive $50 vouchers.

Added to the entries are a selection of our favourites for some fabulous holiday viewing.
