Second Seven Days of Advent Calendar Topics

 Second Seven Days of Advent Calendar Topics

 I still seek Guest Posts for one or more of the days of Advent remaining - see the following
Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories:

December 8 – Christmas Cookies
: Did your family or ancestors make Christmas Cookies? How did you help? Did you have a favorite cookie?
December 9 – Grab Bag - 
Author’s choice: Please post from a topic that helps you remember Christmases past!
December 10 – Christmas Gifts
: What were your favorite gifts, both to receive and to give? Are there specific gift-giving traditions among your family or ancestors?
December 11 – Other Traditions
: Did your family or friends also celebrate other traditions during the holidays such as Hanukkah or Kwanzaa?  Did your immigrant ancestors have holiday traditions from their native country which they retained or perhaps abandoned?
December 12 – Charitable/Volunteer Work
: Did your family ever volunteer with a charity such as a soup kitchen, homeless or battered women’s shelter during the holidays? Or perhaps were your ancestors involved with church groups that assisted others during the holiday?
December 13 – Holiday Travel
: Did you or your ancestors travel anywhere for Christmas? How did you travel and who traveled with you? Do you remember any special trips?
December 14 – Fruitcake – Friend or Foe?: 
Did you like fruitcake? Did your family receive fruitcakes? Have you ever re-gifted fruitcake? Have you ever devised creative uses for fruitcake?

If you have a one, two or three paragraph comment you would like to include here, send it to me by email, or even in the comments here, and I will include it in the post for the correct day; along with my own comments. Let's give it a try.


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. Bill - everyone KNOWS there has only ever been ONE fruitcake in existence - ever! This one fruitcake has been re-gifted more than one million times now. Amazingly, it still has exactly the same freshness and consistency that it had when it was originally created in 1751.
