Publishing The Sunday Times on Christmas Day breaks with tradition dating back to 1912, when publishers agreed not to produce a Christmas Day edition of the paper for the general public – giving delivery drivers, newsagents and paperboys the day off. However, technology now allows The Sunday Times to publish the newspaper virtually, without need for a physical copy – providing breaking news while giving paperboys the day off at the same time.

The Sunday Times iPad application has been lauded across the world, winning many awards. It was judged iMonitor’s best media appsoon after its launch in December 2010 and was crowned 2011’s Newspaper App of the Year at the prestigious Newspaper Awards.

John Witherow, editor of The Sunday Times, said: “We have been publishing The Sunday Times for nearly 190 years, but this is the first time we have produced a newspaper on Christmas Day. This special edition is free – only Scrooge would contemplate charging for a newspaper at Christmas.

“On behalf of everyone at The Sunday Times I would like to wish our readers a happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”

The Sunday Timeswill be publishing the App List in January – a list of the 500 best mobile and tablet applications from around the world.
