Join the Booth's Holiday Challenge!

Our Meaningful Memories holiday challenge starts tomorrow, but what kind of challenge would it be if we didn't ask you to do something?

Take a minute to think about how you want your holidays to be:
  • Are you looking for less stress, a little less chaos?
  • Do you want to provide your children with precious memories of time spent together?
  • Do you wish your holidays were focused on greater charity, love, or community?
  • Would you like to infuse a love of nature into your holiday celebrations?
  • Would you prefer gifts made by hand that come from the heart?
  • Do you just want to produce a little less trash or spend a little less money?
Whatever kind of holiday you want to create, we hope you'll decide to make your holidays more meaningful and will take this opportunity to share your ideas with all of us:

1) Spread the word about the challenge. The more people that participate, the more fun it will be!

2) If you have a blog, write about how you're making your holidays more meaningful. We'll provide several opportunities throughout the holiday season to link up and share your posts, starting with a Halloween Costume Parade on November 1st.

3) If you're not a blogger, you can share your Meaningful Memory ideas on our Facebook page.

4) Write a guest post to be published here at the Green Phone Booth. Email me at greenphonebooth [at] gmail [dot] com with your topic idea, and I'll put you on the calendar.

I can't wait to see all of your ideas!

Last year we had one of the best Christmases ever. For years we flew back to my parent's in L.A., then we switched to driving to his parent's in Memphis (we live in the Nashville area) but last year that stopped. Last year we had pot-luck dinner with lots of friends who live in our area. At the end of the night 6 of us went to a midnight showing of "Sherlock Holmes" (not my first choice, but majority ruled on that one).

For those we give gifts to, they all got charitable donations to an organization of their choice (it's as simple as saying, "this year we would like to make a charitable donation, do you have a particular charity you like to support?"). For years my boyfriend + I have bought joint gifts for each other, generally it's a piece of furniture, one year it was curtains, and this year it might be paint.

I've already put out the call to friends for another Christmas like last year's. In the interest of full disclosure, we do not have children, nor do a majority of our friends. That's an area I cannot speak on as far as the holiday season goes.
