Last year, a good time was had by all, so a tradition was born. You can read about it here and here. The idea is, we like to hang out together. If we could, we’d share some holiday cheer in person. But since most of us can’t, we’ll do the next best thing. Virtual celebration. Next Wednesday, December 13, will be the official Blog Cookie Exchange posting day. If you need to arrive earlier or later, no worries. (See, in some ways, it’s better than an IRL party! And you don’t have to clean your house.) Here’s how it works: On or about December 13, post your

and/or anything else you’d like to tell us about your holiday celebration. As is the custom here, there aren’t many rules. Whatever you’d like to share is fine — carols, stories, decorations, something new that you’re trying this year, whatever. Here it’s Christmas, but all holidays are welcome. If you don’t celebrate ANYTHING, then your grinchy scroogey ass can just fake it for one day, for goodness’ sake! Make something up! And you don’t HAVE to include cookies, if cookies aren’t your thing. It’s just that Cookie Exchange has a nice, Christmas ring to it. Better than, say, “shindig” or “hootenanny,” although it may turn into either or both.
If you don’t have a blog, leave your contributions here in the comments. If you DO have a blog, leave a comment here next Wednesday on the Cookie Exchange post, and we’ll all come to your party, too. I think last year I went to about 20 parties in one day! And I didn’t gain any weight or need a designated driver!
This year, I am pleased to offer a special (oh-so-special) entertainment opportunity in conjunction with the Blog Cookie Exchange. It’s a holiday performance by our very own Nilbo! If you click on him here, you’ll find out how to order “The Truth About Christmas,” and bring Nilbo, as he likes to say, into your bedroom. For a mere 5 U.S. dollars, you get Nilbo’s skillful storytelling, plus wonderful holiday music courtesy of his friends. Go to his place and read about it! This is a BARGAIN. Plus, Nilbo said it will help keep him from having to live in a van down by the river. (Although I must confess, when he said that, it made me NOT want to order the thing, because, really, how enjoyable would that be, to know that he was posting live from a van down by the river?)

So here’s the deal, again. We wanna come to your place and eat your cookies and rummage around in your things and stuff next Wednesday. After we leave and you clean up, you can relax and enjoy Nilbo and friends. Good times. See you then!
(Oh, and do post an invitation at your place, if you’re so inclined — everyone is welcome, the more the merrier!)
