fM's Tradition of Blog Caroling - 2017

Yes, Geneabloggers it's time for fM's favorite Christmas tradition. 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 Friday, December 22, on this blog and Facebook. (I sing so much better online than in person!)

So my fellow GeneaBloggers, I challenge each of you to blog or post to Facebook your favorite Christmas Carol - Blog Caroling. We'll all sing along! (Blog Caroling is posting the lyrics, youtube video, etc. of your favorite Christmas carol on your blog.)

Blog Carol between today and Friday, 22 December. Post a note to the comments for this article or on Facebook directing us to your Blog Caroling Post and I will create a listing of all our favorites. (Please list Your Name, Blog Name, Favorite Carol and the link to your post in the comments below or on Facebook.)

If you sing along with us, feel free to snag the Blog Caroling image above.

Thank you for hosting this event each year. It really helps generate greater Christmas spirit. PS Ignore my new comment on your last year's post as I entered there by error.
