Hello, welcome to our last Christmas topic of the month. So far we had Christmas decorations, Christmas parades and Christmas recipes, now for the last week or our holiday month we are going to be writing about Christmas traditions.
This is the time to write about Christmas as a yearly event. You can write anything from family traditions -digg out those photos from family gatherings- to more general topics such as Christmas traditions in your country. Even if you do not celebrate Christmas you can still write about it, tell us how do you cope with the Christmas hype. Do you just go with the flow or do you choose to do something completely different like taking advantage of those festive days to go on holiday abroad.
Here in France it is traditional to have a big Christmas dinner on the 24th, we call it Reveillon, and it is a big event held after midnight mass on Christmas Eve. The menu for the meal varies according to regional culinary tradition. In France Christmas is a time for the whole family to come together and feast with culinary delicacies. How is it in your neck of the woods?

Ooops. The link should be:

This is my entry titled Family Christmas Traditions.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Our-Family-Chri … raditions-
I loved doing this hub, and think the hubweekly topics are wonderful! This is new for me, and this only my second entry into one of these forum/hub topic weekly things.
I wrote about traditions spanning from when I was a little girl, through when my boys are getting to be older teenagers! I can't wait to read others as well.
One more thing, did anyone else have a hard time copy pasting the complete rss feed into your hubs? It seems to maybe be running out of room. The link works, and I tried grabbing the RSS from my address bar, but that link also doesn't work. I will add that RSS as soon as I figure out how to. Thanks.
Try "copy shortcut" or "copy link" not just highlight and "copy". Princessa and I have both written how to hubs with screen shots. The links are on all of the HubMob round up hubs that I write.
Thanks Rmcrayne... I was able to post the RSS feed for last weeks hub topic very easily. This link is longer and still giving me trouble, but hopefully as I have time to search through some of the hubs you mention, I can figure it out. The options you gave there are still stumping me. Maybe its because I have a mac.
Actually, I just figured it out. Instead of doing it the way I did last week, I kept trying all kinds of other ways, it finally worked by simply copy pasting the link in the #2 above, instead of going to the link, and copying it there (or using the rss image in my toolbar.) Whatever works!
Ok-- first time I was going to try a hubmob topic... and the url for the banner won't work.
as it's a jpeg, i figured to put it into a photo capsule, and chose 'import' and pasted in the URL i copied...and it said "unrecognized file type.'
Also, I don't know WHERE to put the rss thingee..
Sorry for poor/sloppy typing.. I'm both tired and sick witha cold
Hi, For the HubMob graphic you need a photo capsule. From there you either copy the jpg file from your computer (you need to save it first) or you import the graphic with the following URL: http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv19 … itions.jpg (please click on the link and copy the full URL showing on your toolbar)
For the RSS feed you need to use an RSS capsule. Again click on the RSS link and then copy the full URL showing on your toolbar in the capsule.
For further instructions like rmcrayne mentioned you can check both her hubs or mine on the subject:
http://hubpages.com/hub/HubMob-For-Dumm … HubMob-Hub
Good luck and don't give up. After your first time you will see how easy it really was to get it all done. Take care
I wrote a hub about St. Lucia's Day, and Sweden's Christmas, however as you can see in the URL I misspelled Sweden, should I make a new hub and delete this one or do you think that this is going to be acceptable (I feel like such a goof for making this mistake). Thanks

As I think back about holiday traditions in my parents' home, we were blessed in many ways. My parents were not financially rich but they were rich with abundant love for their children.
Enjoy the hub!!!!

I forgot to post my HubMob submission, Christmas Lights- The TSO Collection:: Christmas Lights Set to Trans Siberian Orchestra Music.
A marriage of two of my favorite things- Christmas lights and TSO music. As Trans Siberian Orchestra has gained in popularity over the last six to eight years, their music has popped up around the world synchronized with home Christmas lights. Enjoy this collection of 12 songs with amazing Christmas light displays.
For some reason the system will not let me post with the link. It thinks it's a duplicate post (from my posting of the HubMob roundup hub).

I made a mistake somewhere. I clicked on answer the question rather than make a hub about this. Now I don't know how to link my hub to my answer.
Sorry for this. I just am not tech savvy.
Anyway, here is my hub for whatever it is worth. Thank you!
