Welcome to my Christmas/Holiday Party for my friends, their guests, and whoever stops by the holiday gathering!
I’ve never done a post like this before, but it was fun to put together. Below the image are gifts for many of the faces here and bloggers I visit. These people come not only different parts of the world, but from different cultures and belief systems. They are Christians, Jews, Muslim, Atheists, Agnostics, and others, yet each of them is part of a global community of goodness – so peace and goodwill to all!
The elf below has the gifts. (Quite the helper wouldn’t you say?) There is an order in the listings, but you may have to look around.
If your name isn’t listed, I apologize – so open one of the Grab Bags at the end. Your choice!
Because others want to know what you got, please tell about your gift in the comments. You never know, someone may want to trade with you! After all, I don’t believe there are duplicates.
I encourage everyone to comment about the gift of others. After all, parties involve good conversations.
If you see someone who you know and they haven’t arrived, please notify them to drop by for their present because I didn’t use any ping-back methods as a reminder.
FYI: Different entertainment will appear in the comments throughout the day.
A reminder to stop by for annual Christmas Eve treats of wonder. After all, it will be the one-year anniversary of the 2012 edition that was Freshly Pressed.
Positive cheers to all in the spirit goodness for the season … and thanks for reinforcing my belief system that there are many good people in the world.
Don’t forget to get the T-shirt before you leave. It’s at the end of the post.
