Journal Your Christmas, a fantastically cool online holiday project by my pal Shimelle Laine. Back in 2007, I decided to give J.Y.C. a try and now it's become one of my favorite traditions. (You can see a mix of my 07, 08 and 09 pages here.)
The cool thing is that once you join Journal Your Christmas, you're in for life. You sign up and pay once, and get to enjoy the experience year after year. It's more than just making a page a day. You're documenting the season, the memories, the music, the food, the feeling, the nostalgia, the preparations ... along with thousands of people from all around the world. You can make it into a scrapbook, or you can use it as a writing project with just a journal and pen. Either way, you're going to end up with something that brings back the magic for you (in your quest to 'take back Christmas,' as Shimelle says) and keep your memories fresh for you and others to look back on years from now.
Want to join in the fun? I'm giving away one free pass to Journal Your Christmas and all you have to do is leave a comment here telling me what you're looking forward to most about this holiday season. I'll pick one winner tomorrow morning, November 30.
