Blog Log: The week in local blogging

It’s days before both Christmas AND Chanukah, and a lot of you seem to have checked out already. But a few are planting the seeds of holiday cheer.

There’s still plenty of time for stress, and Yoga Mama Me is running so hard she actually missed the yoga. Us, we’re trying to act more like the cat over at Small Measure.

So Much For Tact is dishing out 12 Songs of Christmas, Amateur Cocktail Guy has the beer taken care of, and Crocheting Asheville is bringing the eats with turducken in a can.

Mountain Mama uncovered photos from Christmas past, and Melissa Moss Art took us tree shopping.

Chasing the Bread Truck wants to know your favorite worst gifts of all time, and Easy Bake Coven reminds us that the pagans will be celebrating a “scintillating solstice”.

And Recovering Iowan shows us how to take the holiday spirit a bit too far.

Next stop: New Year’s Eve. See you on the other side.
