Its easy to get so busy tracing your ancestors lives that you forget to leave traces of your own life.
Which is why I think the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories is so neat. Its a series of daily blogging prompts for Dec. 1 to 24 that GeneaBloggers author Thomas MacEntee set up to encourage participants to write about Christmases past.
Click here to learn how you can participate. Even if you dont blog, you could use the prompts to start a holiday memory book you can pass on to your kids or grandkids.
MacEntee will link to participants posts each morning on his blog. You can read each days posts by clicking on the date on this calendar.
