Your regular Wednesday blog series, Re-visioning Your Story, has been interrupted by . . . shopping . . . parties . . . shopping . . . baking . . . shopping . . . writing cards . . . and, you guessed it! SHOPPING! Since we’re all busy at this time of year, regardless of what holiday you do or don’t celebrate, I thought I’d share a few blog posts I found meaningful at this time of year. I’m spreading the Christmas and Chanuka cheer for you to enjoy.
The following Christmas and Chanuka messages are brought to you by some of my very talented WANA friends*.
(*WANA = We Are Not Alone, by Kristen Lamb. Check out her class for building a writer’s platform using social media: Join this class or the pixies win.)
Susie Lindau’s holiday tradition parallels storytelling except for the cutting up part.
Don’t miss Julie Hedlund’s delightful look at Clement C. Moore’s classic ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas retold from the parents’ view.
August McLaughlin’s post about a teen’s high jinx at the holidays is hilarious: stealing Jesus.
Calvin and Hobbes fan Louise Behiel shares Calvin’s snowmen, some music and a present that will give you a Christmas smile.
I love the music that Coleen Patrick shares when she wishes us a Happy Chanuka.
And tooting my own horn, you may want to check out one of my other December holiday posts: A Christmas Cry Baby, Quotes in the Spirit of Christmas, or December Holidays by the Week.
Stay tuned! Next week we will return to our regular blogging schedule and topics. Thank you so much for visiting. And a special thanks to my WANA friends for cheering me onward and for providing such wonderful thoughts to share. In the meantime, in the spirit of the holidays please join me in spreading the Christmas and Chanuka cheer, or whatever the cheer or expression of your holidays.
