2011 Holiday Spirit Blog Carnival

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and welcome to The 2011 Holiday Spirit Blog Carnival . I've enjoyed this time of year for most of my life and have lots of wonderful memories of the time that I have spend with family and friends I hope that everyone will be able to share the holidays with family, friends, and other loved ones.  The last couple of years have been really busy me and I haven't been able to post near as often as I'd have liked nor publish as many of these and my other carnivals but I really wanted to get out at least one edition this year, to let you know that I still have the holiday spirit and would love to share some with all of you.

When I started the Holiday Spirit Blog Carnival the idea was to share stories, traditions, decoration ideas, gift ideas, about Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holidays celebrated this time of year.  I remember as a kid that the local telephone company had a program where you could call and every day they would describe how Christmas was celebrated in different parts of the world.  It was so interesting to hear about the traditions and customs of people around the world and that something like Christmas could be celebrated in so many different ways.  Even in our own neighborhoods we all celebrate differently than our neighbors and in our own special ways.    

I'm glad that you've taken time out of your busy holiday schedule to spend a little of it with us!
