Holly Bloggy Christmas Memories & Traditions & My 500th Post

Today’s my last post before Christmas, and it’s also the final day of the Holly Bloggy Christmas After Party. BIG THANKS one last time to everyone who attended and posted something for the events last week! (Prize announcements still to come! Sorry, but with the holiday’s it’s taking a little longer to get everything settled!)

This also happens to be my 500th Post! Can you believe it? Me Either! But I’m very proud of this little milestone! I had planned on posting a giveaway today but with the holidays coming, I doubt many people will be online to see it till next week anyway, so I’ll be posting something then! So be sure to come back for the giveaway!

Today I’m featuring some bloggers from the Christmas Memories and Traditions event. All week I was psyched to see all the great recipes, crafts, homemade gifts, and trees. And I was very curious about what kinds of things would be posted for the Memories and Traditions events. I mean, homemade gifts is fairly wide open; you could basically submit anything that you’ve made, but I wasn’t really sure what to expect with the memories and traditions event. But of course, my fellow bloggers did not disappoint! And as I suspected there was such a variety in the posts!

No photos with today’s featured links, simply because there was such a variety of posts, I’m not sure how I’d work all the photos together in one post without it looking a little strange. I won’t list everyone of course, because I want you to visit Tidy Mom if you didn’t go by last week.

-Sarah at Our Pumpkin & Sweet Pea and Teresa at Blooming on Bainbridge were among the bloggers that share some Christmas food traditions!

-Kristen from Hope Abound and Lucy from Lucy’s Life shared stories of their first Christmas with their husbands.

-Hallee from Hallee the Homemaker and Mary at Giving Up On Perfect shared childhood memories.

-Renae at Just for the Joy of It and Mum Powers at

Three A’s and a C shared Ornament-Related Traditions.

-And Brooke from How Does She… shared a number of Frugal & Fun Christmas Tradition ideas.

And there are a lot more where these came from. For the full of list of posts visit Tidy Mom.

Merry Christmas

And A Happy New Year!
