I did it! I completed Blogmas! 25 days of festive cheer. As a blogger that started in October 2020, I am so happy I did this. It has been fun, overwhelming, positive and filled me with so much festive cheer.
I’m not even sure if Blogmas continues on the 25th, but I wanted to create one anyway.
For many, you will be celebrating Christmas with families, for others, this will just be another day. For me, this will be the first year that I can’t spend it with my parents. I am thankful that they are safe, but it doesn’t feel the same, not spending this time of year with them.
For those looking for something to do, I wanted to share some blogs from other bloggers that I read throughout December that I loved! I highly recommend reading these posts as they are created by some remarkable people, who put so much effort and time into each post.
I started this post at the start of December and added blogs I appreciated as the month progressed.

Another insightful review by The Happy Reader, as it explores the ins and outs of this very relevant book. I love the honesty and background you get from each book review.
