Loads of things to talk about this week as we head into December. I'd first like to give a shout-out to something that we've been working on over at Google. Designcember is a month-long celebration of web design. The site itself is built using container queries, and filled with little UI surprises. Behind each door will be something interesting to help you learn about and celebrate the responsive web.

We would also love the community to share their container query experiments, we'll highlight them at the end of the month. Create a demo and post a link to Twitter with the hashtag #designcember.
