Long time, no blog, eh?  I know, I know.  I go through fits and starts, but that’s what adult life is like: you get busy, you take care of home and work commitments first then, in those extra moments where you are not in an exhaustive coma, you find time for your hobby.  Such is life.

Anyway, I’m back with a late starting blog series: Blogmas, where I blog (almost) every day up to the twenty-fifth. Naturally, I will be putting my own spin on the series to accommodate my own festivities.  All of the bloggers who are tucking into Blogmas this year are, at least those I have seen, are approaching the project from a very Christo-centric point of view (duh).  If you’re not Christian, or at the very least not self-identified as “something else” the traditional Blogmas topics are flat footed to say the least

But what about those of us who are not Christians but want to partake in some of the seasonal goodwill?  Let me tell you, it’s hard to get through December without getting your Yule awash in manger scenes.  So, with that in mind my friends, I bring you the revamped, inclusive version of Blogmas. 

Here are the themes:

1 Favorite winter tradition
2 What this time of the year means to you
3 Favorite winter themed movie
4 Favorite winter themed music
5 Favorite winter food
6 If you exchange gifts when do you open them?
7 What is your favorite winter craft or homemade gift to share with others
8 What's on your wish list this year
9 Winter items you can't live without
10 Show us your cookies or recipes
11 Winter food: what's on the menu?
12 Winter Wonderland: Show Us Where You Live
13 How are you counting down till winter break?
14 Favorite childhood winter memory
15 Winter decor
16 Solstice bush reveal
17 Winter in my culture and in my family
18 Small treat ideas for loved ones
19 Preparing for the 25th
20 Last minute gift ideas
21 Favorite winter poem or picture
22 A day in the life of your winter/ 25th preparations
23 Favorite winter story

26 Boxing Day
27 Creative left over ideas
28 Winter haul
29 2014 discoveries
30 2014 favorites
31 2014 in review

You’ll notice that this version of Blogmas continues throughout the entire month of December and, also, that there are strands for anyone regardless of their religious persuasion (or lack thereof) to fully participate.

For my own part, I will probably do some themes individually and several of them combined into mega posts.  In the meantime, have a look at the list and the topics that appeal to you.

Are there any posts you are looking forward to?  Any posts you may like to write about yourself?  Let me know in the comments.
