20 Off-Beat Holiday Themed Posts You Can Write

I first started seeing Christmas decorations in the stores back in August. No, seriously, August. Part of me wanted to buy the “cool stuff” before it sold out, because usually I like to wait until after Thanksgiving to do anything Christmasy, and by then, most things are picked over. That's pretty much my thoughts when it comes to the holidays and posting. Usually waiting to the last minute to throw together some kind of holiday post, then promptly go back to laying on the sofa eating chocolate until New Year's Day.

So, with all the holiday posts out there, if you feel overwhelmed, that means your brain is working. What do you want to contribute to the holiday spirit? Well, if you need some inspiration, here's a few posts that you can possibly write:
