The winter holiday season is upon us. For me, that means Christmas, cookies, and (hopefully) spending time with family. Of course as an expat, there is a catch. My family live on the other side of the world. At the same time, we’re slowly adding new traditions to our holiday: gluhwein, visiting Christmas fairs, and chocolate letters to name a few.
To celebrate the unique and varied holiday experiences of expats, I’m inviting you to send me your holiday stories. You can write about traditions you miss or have adapted to work in your new country, or new traditions you’ve adopted or created, or about new facets expat life brings to your season. I’ll publish as many stories here as I can starting December 20th and running into January. In exchange for your guest post, you’ll get a link back to your site or blog and my undying gratitude.
If you’d like to participate, here are some guidelines:
Thank you in advance to all participants and Happy Holidays.
