I’m kicking off a big holiday event here at gfe today—25 Days of Christmas! Every day from today through December 25, I’ll be sharing a post. It might be a giveaway (like today’s post on my Out and About page). It might be a review—product, restaurant, lodging, etc. It could be a review and a giveaway—say, a very desirable cookbook. It might be a recipe … holiday oriented or non-holiday oriented, the latter just to get you through the holidays or any busy time (that’s every day, right?). It might be a guest post. As you know my favorite guest posts are the personal stories of those finding out they have a gluten issue (from gluten sensitivity to celiac disease) and finding new health and happiness by living gluten free easily. So look for a variety of gfe posts, and, hopefully, they’ll all be ones you’ll enjoy.
I’m also adding something else to most posts just for fun. I collect children’s Christmas books and with no little ones at home, there’s nobody to share them with these days. I still enjoy my books each year, but miss those days of cuddling with Son or young nieces and nephews to read heartwarming, and beloved Christmas stories. So some days (when there’s no conflict with the post content), I’m also including a thumbnail and a link to one of the books in my collection. Even if I included one each day, I have more than 25, but I’ll definitely share some of my favorites with you—from board books to “handle with care” pop-up books that are for the older children (that would include me!).
Why am I hosting 25 Days of Christmas? First and foremost, I thought it would be fun, but also because I have a backlog of some great stuff I want to share with you, my gfe readers. And, finally, this event is a celebration. You see, December 31, will be the 2-year anniversary of gfe!
