Because Reading’s Holiday Hop: Join us for a virtual holiday

Posted November 18, 2020 by Berls in Holiday Hop / 6 Comments

With COVID-19 putting a damper on 2020’s holiday activities, we thought it would be fun to have a safe, virtual celebration through a holiday hop. We hope you will join us!

What is the Because Reading’s Holiday Hop?

The holiday hop will be a chance to virtually visit each other for the holidays, beginning Monday December 14 – Sunday December 20, 2020.

Each stop on the hop will feature a picture of a special space in the blogger’s home for holiday celebration, along with a description/story of their holiday traditions. Pictures might include:

  • Christmas Tree
  • An advent calendar
  • Stockings on the mantle
  • Holiday lights outside the home
  • Wreath
  • Menorah*
  • Kinarah*
  • Pinatas*

*Note: as these examples illustrate, do not feel confined to Christmas. Whatever you celebrate this season can be the focal point of your post.

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, mom to the cutest, happiest, best 2 year old and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 22 year old on the planet. My family mean everything to me and they appear frequently in the Sunday Post with Berls. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!
