Frequently asked question about Christmas for Kids section

Q. Some of the games at the North Pole require a “Javascript enabled browser.” What does this mean?
A. Javascript is a programming language. Most games offered at the NorthPole were created in Javascript and you won’t be able to play them if you do not have a Javascript-enabled web browser. It should not be a problem at all because the latest versions of most browsers have Java implemented (Netscape 2.0 and higher and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 and higher). If you have an older browser, you can easily download the latest version of Netscape Navigator or Microsoft IE by clicking one of the links below:

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Netscape Communicator/Navigator

If you already have a recent browser and have problems accessing the Java games, be sure the “Java enabled” function of your browser is switched on (in Netscape: Edit – Preferences – Advanced – Enable Java).

Q. How do I perform a “Screen Capture” for some of the games at the North Pole?
A. If you have colored a picture, dressed a snowman, or trimmed a tree, you may save your completed work as an image file with a Screen Capture. There are 2 ways to perform this in Windows: press the Print Screen (or PrtScn) key on your keyboard to copy the entire screen to the clipboard, or press Alt-Print Screen to copy only the active window. You will then need to open an image editor (such as Microsoft Paint, which comes with Windows), create a new file, and select Paste from the Edit menu.

On a Macintosh, pressing Command-Shift-3 creates a PICT file of the entire screen in the top directory of your boot drive. Press Command-Shift-4 to change the cursor to a cross, which you can click and drag to select an area of the screen to capture in a PICT file. Adding the Control key to either of these combinations copies the screen image to the clipboard which may then be pasted in an image editor.

Printing instruction

For best results on the projects available in our Printables section, use cardstock or index paper and select high quality printing in your printer’s set up options. In 2005, AllThingsChristmas converted all of its Printables to PDF documents. The PDF file format (Portable Document Format), makes sharing documents over the Internet fast, easy and reliable. A well made PDF file will look the same on all computers regardless of operating system, fonts or browser making PDF files most useful for documents intended for printing. Viewing PDF files requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, standard on most newer computers. If you do not already have Adobe Acrobat Reader, it may be obtained free by visiting the Adobe Website.

MIDIs

MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, a standard adopted by the electronic music industry for controlling devices, such as synthesizers and sound cards, that emit music. A MIDI representation of a sound includes values for the note’s pitch, length, and volume.

MIDI files do not contain actual recorded music. Instead, the music sequence is recorded as a series of numbers which explain how the music is to be played back.

To play a Midi File simply click on it and give it time to load. You can also download Midi files by right-clicking on the file name and selecting either SAVE TARGET AS or SAVE LINK AS (depending on you browser) and then save to a selected file on your hard drive.

Playing a MIDI File requires a sound card, speakers and driver software. Most computers already have these, but if you are unable to hear the music, you may need to download a MIDI plug-in. You may download Free MIDI plug-ins in a matter of minutes which will allow you to play MIDI files.

Netscape and Internet Explorer users may download Crescendo free. AOL and Internet Explorer users may download Media Player free.

The MIDI files found on All Things Christmas Music page have been selected from across the internet and were created and/or arranged by others. They have been selected for their sound and quality when played on a basic home computer.
