Let me assure you that I have been quiet on purpose. I know I should be posting something at least 2 or 3 times a week, but the time has not been right for it. Trust me, you’re happy about it. You don’t need banal posts and I know you all have enough to read without me.
For today, I will bring to your attention a Facebook event that I’ve set up. I’m happy to have it spill over onto the blog, too.
My Welcome Yule Party will take place on December 10. The idea is for everyone to hop on (here or on Facebook) and tell us what you are doing to celebrate whatever-it-is-you-celebrate-in-December.
Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or something I’ve forgotten…, this time of year is happily awash with holidays. I don’t care which one you celebrate. Tell us about it. What activity gets you smiling and feeling good will toward the people around you? What makes you hopeful? What is just downright fun to do? I want events (go ahead and link to something in your area), recipes (yes, please), and pictures of your decorations, holiday table, or celebrations.
I’ll post a reminder on the 10th to get it all started. It goes on all day and you can post here, on Facebook, or both places, if you want. I will try to respond to everyone who posts, and I’d love it if there’s a lot of back-and-forth between everyone. It’s a party after all. Pour yourself a drink and mingle!
And if you want to know what to give an author for a holiday gift: buy her books! Give them to friends. Fill up your reader or library shelves.
Of course, I bet you knew that already!
