It's Christmas Eve, there's snow on the ground here in Victoria, and we all have visions of sugar plums and hot chocolate in our heads, right? Well, almost all of us. I'm a big fan of all things warm, so I thought I'd throw some summer memories into the mix to warm us up a bit!

On this map, each circle is sized based on the number of medals won per country in the summer olympic games. Check it out on the New York Times website, where you can mouse over or click on each country for details, and slide back to view maps from past years.

Happy Holidays, everyone -- keep warm!
