As we bring our Advent Calendar to a close (and thanks to all who stuck with our somewhat random journey), we thought we'd leave you with possibly the most Christmassy image we found on our trawl of the photo libraries of the planet. As anyone else sat in front of BBC2 at 2.15pm BST this afternoon (this ain't no pre-record, you know - it's live!), there's no need for a write-up. Christmas bliss.
So that leaves us with nothing more to say than Merry Christmas to you all. 2009 has been an absolutely massive year for MusicRadar. We've made lots of changes to the site, both technical and creative, and our traffic figures show that not only do you like what you read but that there are more of you here than ever before!
Page impressions (just one of the ways we measure this stuff) have tripled from just over 1,000,000 twelve months ago to well over 3,000,000 (!) whilst unique visitors have similarly skyrocketed. From all of us here at MusicRadar, we humbly thank you for your loyal support and hope we can keep delivering through next year and beyond.
Did anyone say NAMM 2010?
