(Note: A funny memory: One year the tree Dad brought home was too tall. Instead of trimming it at the bottom he lopped off the top. Here's our pitiful attempt to disguise our headless tree!)
We are all so busy this time of year that I didn't try to set up an interview and giveaway with another artist this month. If you are at all like me, one more thing added to your to-do list just might collapse the whole deck of cards! So how about just a short minute of your time to jot down a holiday memory or tradition?
Just add a comment to this post and tell us about your favorite holiday memory or tradition. It doesn't matter which holiday you celebrate - Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza or - why not? - Festivus! I love hearing about holiday memories and especially like hearing about those sweet, meaningful (and sometimes just plain weird) ethnic traditions handed down through generations. I wrote about Christmas memories before, here and here. And some of our family Christmas traditions here and here.
I can't wait to hear from you! And as my gift to you, I will choose one - I won't say "favorite" because I'm sure I'll love them all - that resonates most with me. I'll also pick one post via random number generator. Both of you will be able to choose ONE item from either site, anotherbrightidea or morebrightideas for any amount up to $20.
I'll keep this open for one week, until next Friday, 12/17. That will give me enough time to get it to you in time for Christmas. (Sorry, I will have to limit this to U.S. and Canada this time.)
Let's hear your story!
