virtual advent tour: let’s do this thing
posted by soe 11:00 am

I’ve changed my mind. Let’s do the Virtual Advent Tour after all.

For those unfamiliar with it, the Virtual Advent Tour (hosted here last year and previously on Blogspot) has its roots in the paper Christmas accessory. Daily, you’d open a numbered door that corresponds to the date, revealing a picture (or bit of chocolate) beneath it. In this case, instead of a tasty morsel or drawing, every day between Dec. 1 and Dec. 24, you get a blog/vlog post from around the internet. These posts share how their authors celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, solstice, and/or other winter holidays with favorite customs, memories, songs, foods, photos, books, events, and other traditions. To make sure everyone knows where to go, every day I’ll post with the address(es).

Does this sound like fun? Would you be willing to compose a post or two to make this successful this year? What you share is completely up to you, and you don’t need to let me know the topic ahead of time. All that I ask is that you have your post published by midnight your time the evening before the date(s) you pick.

If you’d like to participate, please leave me a comment on this post telling me what date(s) you’d like. I’ll update this post as people claim days. And I’ll work on creating a badge for those who want it tonight. For those who want it, you can find three sizes of the badge after the jump. (more…)
