Does your hometown/state have any special holiday traditions? Is there an event, decoration, or tradition that begins or ends the holiday season for you?

For example, does your neighbor decorate their yard? Is is the lighting of the town's Christmas tree? Do you have a Twinkle Light Parade? Is there a local craft fair that gets you thinking about the season? Is it a community service event or drive? Are there lights at a local historical site? Does your town have a unique ball drop which rivals NYC? Do you have a New Year's Day polar plunge?

The options are endless! Let's share our hometown traditions with each other.


  1. Provide a brief background of your hometown:

    *City, state, country


    *Average winter weather

  2. Cut out or reprint an article from the local newspaper, magazine or write a description of the tradition.

  3. Write a bit about why you enjoy or look forward to this event.

  4. If possible include a photograph, it may be the original photograph
    from the article or a colored copy, which you copied or scanned at

  5. As I begin to think about local traditions and events in my area, choosing one place is quite a challenge. Tell your partner about two events, sites or traditions which must be seen or experienced.

  6. Decorate your envelope.

  7. One partner


  • Brief hometown background

One more note: Extras not necessary. Please rate a 5 if you receive a letter with holiday traditions, a photo (if possible) and written information to meet swap requirements. As usual hearts are up to you.

Newbies and International friends welcome.

I will angel if necessary. Thanks for taking a look at this swap! Have a great day.
