    5. My first time and I am so excited! I tried to do a Christmas Challenge on my blog years ago, and I couldn't find many who were interested. So am I ever psyched to be with like-minded people for this Christmas! Thank you all and especially to the person who created and continues to sponsor this event.

    6. Thanks for hosting Michelle, I've been looking forward to Christmas Spirit for weeks! :)

    7. This sounds like fun! I enjoy doing some Christmas-specific reading in December.

    8. Oh, how wonderful! This is my first time participating, and I am very excited.

    9. I may not get beyond the Candy Cane level this year, but I will do at least one!

    10. Oh! This sounds like such fun! I'm definitely doing the Mistletoe level this year. I'll also do Fa La La La Films, since I love Hallmark's Christmas movies!
