Christmas Card Writing Party

1 merry thoughts
During the height of the holiday season, sending out Christmas cards can seem like just another chore on your list of things to do.

This year, address this sometimes daunting task by turning it into a card-writing party!

Invite a few close companions to your home one evening and have them bring along their cards, envelopes, address books, pens, and postage stamps.

While writing out the cards at the dining room table, nibble on delicious and special appetizers.

It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching out of the self to one's fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas spirit.

Christmas Town Trees

2 merry thoughts
Since the Christmas tree is one of biggest symbols of Christmas I am always on the look out for Christmas trees. Check out this beauty . . . LOVE the red. There are Fraser Firs, Cashmeres, Spruces, and more types of trees in abundance. Of course, ornaments are needed to decorate the trees. Also, available are tips on decorating your trees.

In addition to the online store, there is a blog. The Christmas Town Trees Blog shares recipes, decorating ideas, crafts, and traditions. Lots of fun Christmas inspiration can be found at Christmas Town Trees via the store and the blog.

I received no monetary value for writing this review.

"This blog is definitely on-track with what Christmas-aficionados are after – a slice of trivia here, a cute quiz there, a wonderfully warm idea [over there,] and a helping of history with a side of cookies."

Don't you love that description?!

Christmas Town Trees found my blog and was kind enough to write up a brief post about 365 Days of Christmas.

Christmas Thought of the Day - 8/10/09

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
