As we near the big day I decided to move my Saturday post up a day. So welcome to my Friday stroll through the park, a collection of blogs from the past week that created static in my airwaves. My mashup is a buffet of sorts from some of the best blogs and most talented bloggers I follow. In honor of the Christmas season the following blogs are all holiday theme oriented.
Are you looking to create the ultimate Christmas card to send to family and friends? You will be amazed at the talents of Susie Lindau in her blog titled Cutting Up at Christmas.
Searching for the holiday spirit? Has the overcrowded malls, long lines, and full parking lots have you down? Check our Louise Behiel’s blog this week Christmas Music Past and Present. After watching these videos you will have a smile on your face and regained your Christmas magic!
Are you lost in the commercialization of Christmas? Have you forgotten the true meaning behind it all? Leave it to Linus in the Charlie Brown Christmas to remind us all in Myndi Shafer’s The Reason We Celebrate.
Are you or someone close to you struggling to cope during the holidays? Read Debra Kristi’s excellent blog The Elephant in the Room: Dealing With Grief at the Holidays.
Do you still recall the magic of Christmas from your childhood? Do those feeling come back to you year after year, or have you lost that Christmas feeling? Check out Jessica O’Neal’s blog this week Is Christmas Really Just Meant For Children?
Have you ever tried to rewrite a Christmas classic? Well, that just what Julie Hedlund did! To see what an amazing job she did, read her blog ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas: Holiday Contest
No holiday recap is complete without a great holiday baking recipe. The multi talented writer and healthy baking blogger, August McLaughlin shares with us her delicious ideas in Cinnabon’s Healthy Cousins.
Happy Friday everyone and may the joys of this season find you and your family!
