MWE challenge is to: write on the theme of things you got to do.
Yup, that is what holidays are all about, doing stuff you don't want to do, like not bopping your Uncle Maurice on the head with the gravy ladle when he starts howling about The Fiscal Cliff, or being nice to your sister even though she stabbed you in the back six and a half years ago. It's about shopping at crowded malls. It's about your living room getting trashed. It's about......oh heck, you know what it is about, so write it.
ThursWE challenge: Your challenge for Thursday December 27, 2012 is to create a post describing a memory or memories of Christmas or Hanukkah. Your post can be about any kind of memory; Good or bad memories, sweet or bitter, sad or happy, funny or annoying, forgettable or unforgettable, recent memories or distant, exaggerated or just the facts. The type of memories you write your post about is unimportant.
