Holiday Parties

Did your family throw a holiday party each year? Do you remember attending any holiday parties?

UPDATE: well it seems there are lots of holiday parties going on and memories of parties past. Let’s mingle and see:

  • Gini at Ginisology and Amy at We Tree both have memories of attending company/employee holiday parties and all the dysfunction involved! Anyone caught wearing a lampshade as a hat?
  • Linda at Flipside has some of the best holiday party photos from the 1950s! Check them out – they remind me of the parties my parents use to have!
  • Folkarchivist at Folkarchivist’s Blog talks about an “alternate year” arrangement which is not unusual for most families: one year Christmas is spent with one side of the family, the next year with the other.

Here is a listing of all Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories posts for today from GeneaBloggers’ member blogs:

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
