Holiday Happenings

This is my first winter holiday season as a blogger, so I’m celebrating by participating in two fun holiday blogging events.

The first one is Nymeth’s Christmas Exchange. It sounded like such a fun way to celebrate the holidays and my fellow bloggers. Those of us that signed up will be Secret Santas to someone in the blogging community. I’ve received my email from Nymeth with my secret person’s name, so now I’m searching for the perfect gift to send to one of my favorite blogging friends!

Also, Kailana and Marg are hosting the 2007 Blog Advent Calendar. I’ve signed up for December 14th, and will be posting something special and holiday-related on that date as part of this really cook Virtual Advent Calendar.

I know that sometimes the holiday season can be full of stress and anxiety, so these activities are two fun ways to simply enjoy the company of blogging friends and celebrate the warmth of the community during this holiday season. A special thanks to Nymeth, Kailana, and Marg for organizing these fun and very creative activities!

    You are most welcome πŸ˜€

    I’m so glad to see people excited about the exchange πŸ™‚ I really love the sense of community that I found in the blogging world. I am also trying to find the perfect gift for my blogger… I already have a few ideas!

    The calendar will be so much fun too. Just today I was thinking of what to include in my post, and I have a few things in mind. I can’t wait!

    It’s my first Christmas blogging, too. πŸ™‚ Sounds like you got someone you know for secret Santa. Mine was a complete stranger, but I really like her blog, so it’s nice to have found someone new to read.

    Happy holidays!

    My way of celebrating is mostly just to cook, spend time with the people I love, and do things I enjoy. Glad to see you enjoying the blogging activities!

    Hi Chris. I agree! This community makes the holidays so warm and fun!

    Hi Nymeth. I’m excited to see what people send each other. With this group, I’m sure it will all be very creative!

    Hi Dewey! It’s fun to be introduced to these new (to me, anyway) blogs and bloggers by following the links!

    Hi Heather. I love your way of celebrating and hope to do a lot of that, too (cooking and spending time with the people I love!).

    Happy Holidays to you, too, Carl!

    Hi Bellezza. Thanks for the personal invitation to join your Japanese Literature challenge! I’ve been looking at it, and then looking at it again, and been so tempted. I didn’t sign up immediately because I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed, but it’s a challenge I would particularly love, and your challenge button is absolutely gorgeous, so I am seriously considering it. I’m glad it’s not too late!
