Announcing the Yuletide Farmgirl Festival!

Announcing. . . 
. . . Brown paper packages tied up with strings. . .  an old-fashioned snowball fight. . . 
Passing on time-honored traditions. . . dressing up in your festive Farmgirl best. . .
Marveling at the simple yet intricate beauty of falling snowflakes. . . Popcorn balls. . .
Singing Christmas carols out on a snowy night. . . skating parties. . . 
If you are enchanted with the thought of a simple, pure, joyful Christmas season, Farmgirl style - handmade gifts, wonderful home cooking, family gatherings, and remembering the real reason for the season, the birth of Jesus Christ, I hope you will plan on joining me for this exciting online event!

  
I will be hosting the festival for an entire week as we celebrate the old-fashioned joys of a Farmgirl style Christmas.
Consisting of five different categories, each will have a link pool for you to connect your blog posts.  All you need to do is prepare your own blog posts, relating to the subject of the categories you wish to enter.  You may enter as many posts in as many categories as you like!
