Thank you to all the participants. I’m looking forward to the submissions to the next edition (planned for December 1st). Remember that the Holiday Spirit isn’t necessarily about only Christmas, so I’d love to hear about Hanukkah, Ramadan, and other non-Christian celebrations as well as Christmas. It would be great to hear about your family traditions, your creative give ideas, and your recipes for holiday treats. If you’d like to become involved please feel free to submit your post and help spread the Holiday Spirit.
