This blog is the outgrowth of a brief conversation I had with a cashier at a local grocery store, where I mentioned that I had picked up a book about simplifying Christmas. She asked me what I had learned from the book, and I realized there was precious little that I remembered, aside from a couple little things; it went in one proverbial ear and out the other. Which is a problem, because every year, as the holidays loom on the imminent horizon, I tell myself that I’m going to do my best to minimize the Christmas hassle, and maximize the Christmas fun; however, to-date, every year has been more or less like the former, with maybe a few minor modifications.
There will be two sides to this blog:
1.) It will be general in the sense that I’ll try to choose information that is useful to almost anyone.
2.) It will be specific in the sense that I will be posting information about Christmas related activities in my own community (Bellingham, WA), and also in the broader context of NW Washington.
Please, feel free to participate, anyone and everyone. You may volunteer information/ideas in the comments, or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And…happy holidays, in advance.
