    The Web doesn't make the holidays less stressful – nothing can – but at least it can help you stress out more efficiently. Behind on your last-minute shopping? Tysons Corner sells gift certificates online http://www.shoptysons.com/gifts/; GiftPoint http://www.giftpoint.com is a sort of gift-certificate mall, allowing you to shop for and send gift certificates from a variety of online and offline merchants. The perpetually useful Learn2 site's "holiday survival guide" offers advice on seasonal topics like gift-wrapping and hangovers http://www.learn2.com. And on Christmas Eve, the folks at the North American Aerospace Defense Command will take a break from scanning the skies for planes and missiles (cheery stuff, that) to track the arrival of a certain visitor from the North Pole: http://www.noradsanta.org.
