Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash (Dec 14-18)

The Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash is less than a week away! I hope you'll all join us for a week of Christmas festivities, friends, fun, and a cup of good cheer!

Please look over our schedule of events and put them on your calendar. We look forward to seeing your posts!

Monday, Dec. 14 - Homemade Gifts - The best Christmas gifts come from the heart. Whether you sew, bake, paint, or glue, a homemade gift is always special and unique to those who recieve it. Come join us over at Tater Tots and Jello and share something that you've made, or share something that someone made for you.

Tuesday, Dec. 15 - Christmas Trees - It's so amazing to see all the different decorating styles people have out there. And we can't wait to see yours! Share some photos of your Christmas tree. Do you have a special theme? A favorite ornament? Post your link at A Baby Changes Everything.

Wednesday, Dec. 16 - Christmas Crafts - Christmas is a wonderful time for crafty people to show off their skills. Do you make your own Christmas decorations? Ornaments? Cards? Scrapbooks? Gingerbread Houses? Something else? Come on over to Blue Eyed Blessings and share your creations with us!

Thursday, Dec. 17 - Christmas Recipes - Food and the Holidays go hand in hand. Come and share your favorite Christmas recipes over at Simply Sweet Home. Whether it's an appetizer, a dessert, a drink, a side, or the main course, I'm sure we'll all be hungry for seconds!

Friday, Dec. 18 - Christmas Memories & Traditions - We all have our favorite Christmas stories, from the sweet and sentimental to the unforgettably funny. Tell us your favorite Christmas memory. Or tell us about a favorite Christmas Tradition that your family has. Then link up over at Tidy Mom.

At the end of the week, entries from all 5 events will be put together, and I'll do drawings for all the prizes.
