Gearing up for the holiday season, Apple has continued its annual tradition when it launched its 12 Days of Christmas app in preparation for its annual holiday promotion offering free songs, music videos, apps and books to residents of parts of Europe and Canada.
The 12 Days of Christmas offers are not available to U.S.-based customers, however, the app is available in the U.K. App Store and is reported to be on its way to the Canada App Store soon. A few select countries in Europe are also scheduled to participate in the promotion.
The 12 days will be from Dec. 26 to Jan. 6, with new gifts available each day. Apple has made it an yearly affair for several years now.
Gifts from last year’s 12 Days of Christmas deals in Canada included “some episodes of The Big Bang Theory, a Christmas music sampler EP, a best-selling book by a Canadian author, some episodes of Mad Men, an iTunes Live EP from Bedouin Soundclash, music videos and songs from Kings of Leon and Johnny Reid, the movie One Week and two apps, Diner Dash and Fishing Kings,” MacNN notes.
People who are ineligible for the 12 Days promotion need not be sad because, they have been invited to visit the iTunes page on Apple’s website on Boxing Day (Dec. 26) to receive a special gift for their computers.
