When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Is it possible to change the date of Christmas in Alexa?
« on: October 23, 2020, 01:16:27 am »
We will be celebrating Christmas on December 30th this year, due to me being away on Xmas day.

My kids ask Alexa “how many days until Christmas”

Is it possible for me to set December 30th as “Christmas day”? 

If not, I’m going to have to unplug Alexa until after Christmas.

Use Amazon's BluePrints skill to create your own Q&A, including count downs to a specific date.

even if using blueprints, alexa will still give the actual number of days to christmas.   You will have to use a different name for your holiday.
