In Others’ Words: Honouring Christmas


“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

– from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens *1812-1870), English writer


December starts tomorrow — and with it, so does my month-long break from social media.

Last year was the first time I took an entire month off from blogging and tweeting and Facebook-ing. And I’ll tell you this: I savored every moment of not being virtually “social.”

Yes, I love this blog.

Yes, I love connecting with my readers.

But, oh, the holidaze was so much less frantic thanks to my absence on social media.

And so, I’m bowing out for the next 31 days. I’ll see you all in 2018 and yes, I’m already looking forward to our conversations.

I wish you a joy-filled Christmas.

Oh — one more thing: Even as I step away from this blog, stay tuned for a special edition on December 4th to announce a Snow Day Giveaway. (I scheduled the post back on November 25th!)
