Apple has released a new iPhone app called iTunes 12 Days of Christmas [Free - iTunes link] that provides push notifications for a FREE iTunes gift every day from December 26 to January 7 -- but the catch is (for right now at least) you have to have a UK, Portuguese, etc. App Store account.

That's right, iTunes 12 Days of Christmas isn't showing up in the US or Canadian App Store yet. Whether it's a promotion specific to certain European countries, or whether Apple needs to figure out licensing for different regions before rolling it out, it's Joy to the Euro, bah-humbug for North America for now.
