The Lowdown on Holiday Happenings

Happy holidays, everyone! It's the most wonderful time of the year! Right now the girls and I are listening to Christmas music. We've got most of the Christmas decorating done, and we're doing every last minute thing to get ready for our trip to see family for Thanksgiving. We're so looking forward to the festivities, down time, and family time that comes with the holidays.

Growing up, my family had tons of fun traditions this time of year, and now that I have a family of my own, we're busy creating our own traditions. I love telling my kids about our traditions past, and I love adapting some of my favorites to fit our family.

Last year I created Holiday Happenings to celebrate all of those beloved traditions. And, I'm hosting the carnival again this year. On Friday, December 5, here at Talking Hairdryer, Holiday Happenings will be...happening.

All you have to do to participate is blog about your favorite holiday traditions. They can be from Thanksgiving, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, New Year's, or any other holiday you celebrate this time of year.

Then, after you've posted on your blog, hop over here and link up, via Mr. Linky, and allow all of us to read about your holidays.

It's that easy! You have almost 2 whole weeks, so start planning your post now.

The only yuck thing about this whole carnival is that I don't have a cute button to pass out to everyone that plans to participate. I have neither the talent nor the equipment to create such a thing. So, imagine a cute button that goes along with this post that you can paste in your sidebar to shout out to everyone that you will be at Holiday Happenings!

I can't wait! I hope to see you there!

I bet someone creative helps you with that button. It's not me though. I wouldn't have a clue. :)

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
