Since I'm spending the holidays in Asia, I thought I'd share a few lighter things this week.
First up is the Elf-Yourself site from JibJab. And my wife says I can't dance.

Second, here is something I look forward to each year. Uncle Jay sings the year in review.
At the end of each year, the big financial media outlets typically conduct roundtables to get outlooks from key players in the financial markets. Over the past few years, the individuals that run the best financial blogs and websites have become key players in their own rights, and their opinions are highly regarded by millions of loyal readers. This year, Bespoke asked twelve popular financial blogs/websites to respond to the same 25 questions regarding their 2010 outlooks as well as their take on 2009.
The responses were thought-provoking, and hopefully they will help you form your opinions on what is to come for financial markets in the year ahead.
Best Wishes for a happy holiday season and for a prosperous New Year.Business Posts Moving the Markets that I Found Interesting This Week:
