Christmas Advent Blog Adventure, day 1
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/climate-control/
I was trolling the interwebs a bit yesterday and came across some folks doing some Christmas-themed blogs for December. Christmas Advent Blogs, if you will. Open them up, and find a treasure of blogging delight. The two I honed in on were: The View from the Porch (https://4wallsnaroof.wordpress.com/2015/11/30/the-christmas-postathon/), which has a Christmas Postathon, and Geneabloggers (http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com/) which has an annual Christmas Advent Calendar.
So I thought, what the hey? Let’s do something different for a change.
Now, I missed December 1st, but let’s open 2 in one day. It’s what you do when you get your Advent Calendar late, right? So, this morning I will let you open Day 1, and tonight, Day 2.
Day 1’s theme on the Christmas Postathon was a favourite Christmas decoration. And on the Advent Calendar, it was Christmas trees.
Christmas trees are easy. Every year we seem to get a bigger tree than the year before, and yes, we still go with the live trees, with the needles, watering and all. But we love them. And in this house, they take over the entire entrance. Amazingly enough, the cats have never taken one down (I am knocking on wood furiously as I say this), although Dexter did love sleeping under them, and every morning there is at least one decoration lying in the middle of the floor.
As for a favourite decoration, I’m really not sure. I think my favourites are those we put on the tree, which we don’t have yet so I can’t show them to you. But this one here is pretty nice. It’s from Kevin’s past and I’m sure many of you have seen one like it before.
And, of course, any decoration that includes a kitty gets my vote.
So, now you must wait until I post Day 2 sometime after work, when it’s dark again…
