It’s the third of November, which means I’ve been playing Christmas music now for three whole days. Yep. I’m those people. I figure people have been writing Christmas music for about 2000 years now — I can’t get through all that in just 25 days.
The other thing I’ve been doing, however, is teaming up with 30+ bloggers to bring you two weeks of holiday crafting, cooking, activities, gift ideas, and family fun. It’s a great way to kick off your holiday season, and it’ll be a good place to get some ideas for celebrating with your family this season. Kinda fitting, since we’re finishing up 31 Days of Connecting Simply (I know — it’s been more than 31 days and I don’t have all 31 in there yet. By tomorrow, honest.)
And we’re gonna jumpstart your holiday shopping with some giveaways — over $1800 worth, in fact. We’ve got giveaways for women, men, kids, and babies (including one from Jord — the watch company I featured here last week). You can get the rundown on all the prizes here (and check out the sponsors — you might find other ideas for gift-giving in there, too!).
We’ll also be pinning our ideas and posts, so be sure to follow the Festive Family Holiday on Pinterest as well so you don’t miss a thing!
