Happy December and Happy Holidays! Free Christmas & Holiday Features!

Happy December and Happy Holidays!  The holiday season will be in full swing now that we have turned the calendar page to December.

Today, I wanted to simply take a few minutes to remind everyone about all of the holiday features available here on my Writing Pages. Freely shared, as always, because that is how we roll here.

I encourage you to Like and Follow my Writer’s Page on Facebook and on Twitter to be notified and enjoy all of the extra upcoming holiday postings not appearing here on my Writing Pages — New Christmas Coloring Pages for all ages, Holiday Recipes, Christmas-themed Videos, Images, Wallpapers, and more.

Holiday Features here may be accessed by either tapping on the individual links below, or at any time thru the dropdown menus at the top of the page. Please feel free to share with families, neighbors, and friends, because sharing and giving is what the holiday season is all about.

For me, this year has raced past and here we are already beginning December. How has it been for you this year?

December can be a very hectic month with the holiday season in full swing and so much to do it seems. Holiday and event planning, holiday parties to attend, shopping for gifts, wrapping, decorating, and more. Not even to mention baking cookies, cakes, pies, fudge, and other holiday treats and goodies to share. It can all be overwhelming if we allow ourselves to get too caught up in it all. Let’s all resolve this year to pace ourselves, pause now and then, live in the moment, and truly enjoy the holidays and all of the joys and happiness they bring.

We hope you can take a few moments now and then to visit with us here and enjoy the free holiday features and activities listed above. And watch for a new feature on Clement C. Moore’s “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” poem coming soon! Actually, I invite you to Register today to be notified of every new upcoming post and feature because it is always an ever-expanding list!

A New Feature For The Little Ones — “Little Red Bear’s Easter Holiday” Coloring Images!

Happy Spring and Happy Easter!

As long-time followers to the site know, I have not been sharing much new material lately, having been sidetracked with some ongoing and new (non-COVID related) health issues the past few months. More about that in a coming post soon.

Please Tap to Like & Follow on Facebook for More Information & Fun!

Suffice it to say, today’s post is all about Easter and Artwork and spending Quality Time with the kids.

Specifically, we wanted to announce that my story character friend Little Red Bear has just added special “Easter Holiday” Coloring Images to the site, just in time to color up a bunch of Easter Artwork and Greeting Message Cards for Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, neighbors, and friends for the coming Easter Holiday!

Coloring images are available for unlimited Free downloads simply by ‘Right Clicking’ on an image, choosing Save Image As’ in the dropdown menu to save a local copy on your computer or device, and then printing out as many as you would like. You will find a mix of very basic and simple images for the youngest colorists, and more complex images for older children and adults to enjoy.

We invite to you haul out the crayons and markers, sit down with the kids, and have a fun time coloring and sharing original artwork this Easter Season.

Simply visit Little Red Bear’s Easter Holiday Coloring Pages to get started.
