Month of Christmas 2014


My favourite time of the year has come around again! Christmas is definitely the best time here at The Enthusiast and that means it’s time for Month of Christmas!

If you’re new here, let me explain what Month of Christmas is. Basically, it is a month-long Christmas celebration here on the blog. I do an Instagram challenge (which is always really fun) and a Christmas story competition. So, without further ado, I shall explain them!

The Enthusiast’s Month of Christmas Instagram Challenge

If you’re on Instagram (or just really enjoy pretty holiday pictures) this is definitely for you! It’s 25 days of pictures that you take, and they’re all holiday themed! If you want to see my photos (I’ll also post them on the blog) you can follow me on Instagram (@PotatoesHegarty). And if you’re participating, feel free to tag me in your photos and use the hashtag #TEMonthOfChristmas so that I can see all your cool pics! Now, let’s review the picture posting calendar!


The Enthusiast’s Christmas Story Contest

I love to hear Christmas stories. Stories that have been passed on for generations, stories from your own family, etc. I love to hear all of them! And that is why this year I am having a contest.

The Christmas story contest is a pretty low key deal. Send in your Christmas story (whether it be your own, or one that you’ve heard) and at the end of the month I will choose my favourite. The winner gets their story featured on the blog, with their own Christmas blog post if they want, along with a little message from the winner.

It’s all meant to spread the holiday cheer! I will (for a short time only) have the other stories available on the blog for everyone to read. You can start sending in your stories now, and submissions will end December 24th. The winner will be announced on the 25th. Send your submissions to


I hope you’re all as excited as I am for Month of Christmas! Please participate in the Instagram challenge if you’re interested and send in your Christmas stories! I can’t wait to see everything you guys do!

Thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you soon!

Stay classy, Internet,
