Introducing: Way More Homemade Holidays

November has begun, people. And do you know what that means? Thanksgiving and Christmas are mere weeks away.

Now this... THIS is MY favorite time of year. It's full of family, friends, and... well, of course FOOD. And as I've said before, nothing makes food better than for it to be paired with great company and fellowship.

It is based upon these thoughts that I decided that I will host my very first blog carnival.

Way More Homemade

I'd like for us to share snapshots of our Christmas or Thanksgiving. Here are some ideas to consider as you think about your post:

* Tell us what it is like around your dinner table during the holidays.

* Do you spend it with family? Friends? All or none of the above?

* If your family is not close by, do you travel to see them or do they come to you?

* Share your favorite Thanksgiving or Christmas memories. Funny or sentimental.

* Show us some pictures of your traditions from holidays past. Do you have hopes for future traditions with your family?

* And most certainly share about your holiday food. Does your Aunt Fern make fluffy pink stuff? Does your grandma made a pecan pie to die for? Is there something that maybe no other family on earth, it seems, eats at the holidays that your family for some reason loves?

* Or maybe you do the cooking and you'd like to share your menu.

So, be thinking about what you are going to post and be ready on Friday, November 21st. I'll have a Mr. Linky (my FIRST EVER) up that day and all weekend and you can link your post right here.
The button is over on the side bar for you to grab and put on your blog. Pass the word... I think it will be fun to see other people's traditions, stories, and FOOD!

What a great idea! I love traditions during Thanksgiving and Christmas. OK- I am new to this bloggy thing (at least to having one of my own). I tried to grab your button and add it as a gadget on my blog but it said the url contained illegal characters. Was I not supposed to highlight all of the characters? So much to learn...
But I did mention your carnival anyway.

angie -

you should be able to just copy the text and add it to your side bar as html. I tested it and it worked... so I'm not sure what to tell you.

How much fun! Can you email me a code, so I can post it on my sidebar?

The best part is that Patty has me writing two things for the Siesta blog that is in answer to your questions about holidays and memories, so I have already nearly written a post for this :) Yay!!

Hope you are well!
