Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash Starts Tomorrow!

Hello everyone! I just want to remind everyone that the Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash starts tomorrow! I hope you’ll all join us for a week of Christmas festivities, friends, fun, and a cup of good cheer!

We’ll be kicking off our event with Homemade Gifts over at Tater Tots and Jello. Jen will have her post up late tonight so you guys can start linking up! And in addition to the prizes I’m giving away this week for the entire event, Jen is offering a prize to the participants who link up at her site for the Homemade Gift Event!

In case this is your first time here or just in case you need a reminder, here is our schedule for the week:

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.

And now for your listening pleasure, here’s the song that inspired the name of our event. “Rudolph & The Island of Misfit Toys” was always one of my favorite Christmas movies growing up, and I adored the music! As I began thinking of names for the event, “Holly Jolly Christmas Bash” just kept coming to my mind, and thanks to my witty husband, it evolved into the “Holly Bloggy Christmas Bash.”

Have a great week!
