Technically, today is day 6 of the BlogFestivus, though you’re about to read day 2. And, if the writing gods play nice, you may find day 4, 5 and 6 later today. What? Too much?
Here’s the deal, Blogdramedy threw out a challenge. Write 12 144-word posts revolving around “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” The participants are to include one item from the song each day.
