We made some modifications this morning, separating the Countdown thread from Christmas Together and setting up a whole new area dedicated to the Christmas Countdown
That is because we have added a new site to the Merry Network family known as Merry Holidays.
First, a little history: way, way back when we were first getting our start on the Internet we purchased the name Merry Holidays.com and used it for a couple of years. But after a while we began to get complaints from some out there that we were afraid to say the word "Christmas" or that we were overly politically correct.
Well, our site then as is now was Christmas specific and we looked and looked for a Christmas name, settling on My Merry Christmas.com. After changing to that we sold the name MerryHolidays.com to a travel company. They dropped it a few years later and I reacquired it for sentimental reasons.
I haven't known what to do with it -- until now.
will countdown the days to Christmas every day of the year by reminding us of what makes each day special. Nearly every day of the year has some kind of designation. We acknowledge these days as we count down to the greatest of all holidays, Christmas.
We also give a Christmas designation to every day of the year at Merry Holidays -- so we encourage you to click through from here to Merry Holidays to see what is so special and Christmas related about today.
Merry Holidays has it's own Facebook page and Twitter account, hopefully bringing us new Christmas fans to join the party.
The Christmas Countdown thread anchors this new area of the forums, which are supported by daily posts from Merry Holidays.
