As evident in shopping malls, grocery stores and retail outlets, Christmas is almost upon us. And while the mercury may be falling, elaborate annual displays can both trigger warm Christmas memories and cause us concern about losing the meaning of the holiday.

Even if Christmas becomes more commercial, the true meaning of this blessed holiday has the power to transform; if only we can cut through the typical trappings of the season. This month's free graphic invites viewers to Rediscover Christmas.

Take Rediscover Christmas to a whole 'nother level with matching videos, print items, and graphic sets with our complete campaign resource.

BEHIND THE SCENES: MIDNIGHT OIL SHIPPING

Post OfficeThis is for the at least 11 people who wonder what happens behind the scenes at Midnight Oil.

We are firm believers in child labor. Especially when the childen like it. Getting motivated employees around our parts doesn't even require treat bribery. For some reason all three shipping department employees, who happen to share the same last name, actually enjoy dropping your packages off at the postal center. See picture, right.

Take pride in knowing that every time you pay for "shipping and handling" on a Midnight Oil product, it is probably being handled by one of the many small kids that for some reason hang around our offices a lot.
