    Apple celebrated the holiday season today with a live performance by award-winning singer Idina Menzel, who sang a handful of songs from the Disney animated film Frozen, including the soundtrack Let It Go.


    "A big thank-you from our Apple family to the phenomenally talented Idina Menzel," tweeted Apple CEO Tim Cook. "Your voice is a gift -- thank you for sharing it with us. What a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays!"

    The concert took place at Apple's Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino, California during its recurring Beer Bash employee gathering today.

    Apple today also hosted its annual celebration of Toys for Tots, a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.


    Last year, Apple's holiday Beer Bash featured a live performance by singer Gwen Stefani.

    Surprised they did it at One Infinite Loop. That would have looked incredible in the inner garden of the spaceship at Apple Park.

    I agree! =)

    Makes sense, considering the fact that nearly EVERYONE celebrates the holidays, yet... even with its umpteen factions & myraid branches- still, less than 1/3 of the population is Christian.

    note:
    If you don’t add a /sarcasm tag... I’m totally going to pretend like I don’t realize you’re trying your hand at sarcasm.

    If you want to hear Idina Menzel sing “Let It Go”, you could always just pop the “Frozen” DVD into the player and fast-forward ten minutes or so into the movie... :D

    Too bad retail didn’t get a holiday gift for the second year now... guess those T-shirts were Tim’s last hurrah before sticking to brand sponsored events for Cupertino only.

    Because there are other religions celebrating holidays as well and not everyone cares to believe in fairytale nonsense to find happiness.

    Must be nice, being able to charge exorbitant amounts for mediocre product upgrades.

    Only the Western people care about this nonsense thinking. Here in East Asian countires with the low percentage of Christians, we are free and willing to say Christmas every year.

    iPhones cost $1,000 so Apple can pay famous singers to serenade their tired, overworked employees. Great.

    I wonder if the Festivus pole is actually invented by Jony Ive.

    It's Christmas Timmy. You can't even say it can you? It's not Kawanza (that's a complete farce), it's not Hanukkah. It's CHRISTMAS. It's the reason FOR the season.

    How are those margins compared to direct competitors? Just being curious, I'll assume that you can provide more info since you seem so fluent in this topic? Thank you :)

    Nah, a certain demographic likes to feel that they are being persecuted these days... weird/funny.
