Festive-Blog-Athon Day One: Welcome to Festive-Blog-Athon

Me and Katie (@Intothebookcase) are very excited to finally begin the project that we have been working on for the last few months.

What is Festive-Blog-Athon about?
Festive-Blog-Athon is an event that is designed to make the most of the festive period by celebrating all things Christmassy. We have worked hard to organise everything and to find fun and interesting ways to celebrate with you all. The event will be running from today, the 1st, up until Christmas Eve, the 24th Dec. Festive-Blog-Athon is essentially a marathon of blog posts related to Christmas in some way. It will feature book reviews, movie reviews, Guest posts, Photo Challenge, Giveaways and other things related with the festive season. Each post is designed to get you in the mood for Christmas.

Why did we create Festive-Blog-Athon?
We are both big fans of Christmas, and we thought it would be a something fun to bring to the blogging community around the festive season. It’ll be a great chance to make new friends and get everybody involved, each sharing what we love about this time of year.
We have enjoyed every moment creating Festive-Blog-Athon, and we hope you enjoy it too. When we decided that we’d like to do a project for Christmas, we decided we didn’t want to do a readathon, the reason being we both work full time around Christmas (as many of you probably do), so we wanted to do something that is for everybody and can include as many of you as possible.
We will be alternating between blogs every day.
Here is Katie’s blog link:

PLUS! Every day there will be a variety of Authors and Bloggers who have kindly agreed to feature on our blogs with giveaways!

The festive photo challenge begins today!

This photo challenge is a good way to include as many of you as possible, because all you have to do is upload a picture corresponding to the days theme, and use the hashtag #festiveathon! You can either upload onto the Festive-Blog-Athon Facebook Page, or on to your own Twitter or Instagram accounts. Make sure you use the hashtag so we can find them.
Each picture you post = 1 entry towards a grand prize, and the winner will be announced on Christmas Day. If you post the same photo on all 3 platforms then that would equal 3 entries. The more photos you upload and share, the more chance you have of winning!
Either way, this is a fun photo challenge to get involved in and a chance to feel festive.

Are you ready to find out what the prize is for the photo challenge??
 It's a £15 AMAZON GIFT CARD!!
Because it's through Amazon, unfortunately the winner will have to be from the UK but this is still a fun challenge for everyone!

Looking forward to seeing your photos!
Now sit down, get comfy and enjoy the festive times!
Merry Christmas from Me and Katie
