Kailana from The Written World and Marg from Reading Adventures are very pleased and excited to announce that we will once again be running the Virtual Advent tour this year. This is the fourth year that we have hosted and we hope that the event has become an integral part of the book blogging community's holiday traditions.
The Virtual Advent tour first started when we pondered why should the kids get all the fun of opening a box on the advent calendar and finding a treat in there, and how could we have some blogging fun with a similar concept? So the Virtual Advent tour was born.
Each day anyone who wants to participate takes turns sharing a treat with our friends here in blogland. For example it could be something about your family traditions, recipes, your country's holiday traditions, or a favourite Christmas memory, movie, book, song...anything you like. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas we would like to hear about what your family does during the holiday season, whether it be celebrating Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever it is that you do during this time.
If you are interested in signing up, then please sign up using Mr Linky below. If you want a specific date, then please include that along with your name. If you don't need a specific date, then we will allocate a date to you. We will create a list of links so that as people express interest we will add them to the list, and then each day during the tour we will post a link directing visitors to the appropriate blog. The tour will get away on Tuesday 1 December and run through until December 24. If there are more people than there are days that's fine too.....the more the merrier! It just means that there will be more than one blog to visit on those days.
If you would like to get some idea of the kind of things that people have posted about in previous years, click on this link.
We also have buttons! Feel free to snag one of our gorgeous buttons from here, and you can follow us on Twitter as well.
A special thanks to Jason who was nice enough to design our website for us! Also, thank you Court for the gorgeous buttons!
