Christine at Christine’s Journey is hosting The Crazy Holiday Blogfest. You can check out all the other participants at Christine’s blog site. A big thank you to Christine for this great idea.
Since the holiday time is all around us, and it gets a little crazy, I thought I would host a blogfest about the holidays. Any holiday. It could take place in Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. It could be a scene from a WiP, a new piece you may have started, something totally random, but it should include a holiday (any one holiday, remember).
Since this is my first blogfest as hostess, I'm not sure how long it should be --Let's keep it to 250 words or less if you can.
New Year Holiday 2010
Billy Bob grabbed my hand. We stayed close, our coats and hats made us warm. The crowd jostled us. Their excitement was contagious. We’d been on the banks of the Thames River all day, waiting along with many others.
This was our first anniversary. We have a plan, every year for New Years we will visit a different city. This year it’s London, next year it will be Sydney, after that who knows?
We drank our hot chocolate latte’s. The crowd began to chant the numbers, 10, 9, 8…we joined in. Our west Texas accident is so different from the British who gather near.
7, 6, 5… Billy Bob grinned at me and I hugged him. 4, 3, 2…the next second…1.
Big Ben struck twelve and as the world’s most famous clock continued to announce the New Year, fireworks exploded all around. The smell of sulfur traveled on the breeze. A thrill ran through me.
Billy Bob recorded the show on DVD. I jumped up and down. Being married to Billy Bob had changed my ho-hum life for the good. I loved him and together we would overcome our dull past and forge ahead with new and happy memories.
This is dedicated to all my blogging friends wherever you are in the world. Love and kisses for a bright and brilliant future.
Enjoy the show!
