In addition to being able to read my own blog, you’ll also be able to find me as a contributing editor at The Daily Basics, an editorial blogazine created by Cynthia Bogart. If you’ve opened a copy of Better Homes & Gardens or Kitchen & Bath Ideas or Decorating Magazine, you might have seen the work of The DB editor, Cynthia Bogart, on those pages. Cynthia has been producing editorial articles for those magazines for years and has taken the opportunity to bring her experience for you to get some interesting, enriching articles to lighten up your day, five days a week.
My article this Christmas eve shares the riveting tale of the origin of many of our modern-day Christmas traditions. Contrary to popular belief, our generation did not invent the feast of Christmas consumerism. Long before Charlie Brown’s struggle to find the meaning of Christmas, Martin Luther, an icon of the Protestant Reformation, was having his own internal holiday debate! Read the entire article I wrote for The Daily Basics – and learn how where Santa Claus comes from, why we decorate for the hoidays with a Christmas tree and why we give presents!
From my house to yours this holiday season – Merry Christmas.
