The FootnoteMaven's Tradition Of Blog Caroling

Yes, even Geneabloggers have traditions. From the comfort of my blog, with Hot Toddy in hand, my flannel jammies and furry slippers on, I will blog my favorite Christmas Carol on Wednesday, December 15. (I sing so much better online than in person!)

So my fellow GeneaBloggers, I challenge each of you to blog your favorite Christmas Carol - Blog Caroling. We'll all sing along!

Blog Carol between today and Wednesday, 15 December. Post a note to the comments for this article directing us to your Blog Caroling Post and I will create a listing of all our favorites.

You can view the first year's A Choir Of GeneAngels, and Do You Hear What I Hear.

If you sing along with us, feel free to snag the Blog Caroling Badge. When you select the badge, select "Save As" and choose the .png file. This has a transparent background and will show minus the white background.
