A December Challenge-Share a Favorite Holiday Memory With Us!

 

Let’s face it, one of the things we love about ActiveRain is getting to know more about our members...whether it’s what they’re grateful for or what they like (or don’t like) about their profession.

 

So the December challenge is to share with us a favorite memory, or gift, or unusual challenge you have from previous holidays.

 

For example, one of my fondest holiday memories is our first Christmas in boat paradeFlorida. I couldn’t imagine what Christmas was going to be like with so many palm trees, 80+ degree weather and lots of pink houses around.

 

I soon discovered that you can light up a palm tree to make it festive and instead of sleds and snow, we had boat parades all lit up with Nutcrackers, Santas, and Candy Canes.

 

 

Challenge Guidelines…

~Share in a post a favorite holiday memory or gift or unusual moment.

~Include at least one photograph (make sure it’s your own or you have permission to use it!)

~Write a post telling us about it with at least 250 words (no I’m not counting but I can tell the difference between 50 words and 250! LOL)

~Post a link to your post in the comment section below.

If you need help with this, you can read Belinda Spillman ’s post on How to Post a Link in a Comment.

~The challenge ends on December 31, 2017, at midnight PST.

 

~Entries will receive 1000 points!!!

 

~We all win when we share so Share your Favorite Holiday Memory with Us!

 

I can’t wait to read your entries!!!!!

Nothing like waiting till the last minute.  I actually wrote this weeks ago, but it took me a while to find some pictures in my library of magazines.
