Christmas Forum or Message Board #1: All Things Christmas Forum
I just joined the All Things Christmas Forum and have found it to be very helpful. It’s url is www.allthingschristmas.com/forum/index.php. If you need advice on anything from Christmas decorating, to Christmas carols,you might be able to find it here. They have a Christmas decorations, Christmas recipes, Christmas recollections section and much more. There’s even on place where you can discuss Christmas in other languages. It’s members are definitely very fond of the holidays. I even ask a spot where someone asked if you decorate your bathroom with Christmas decorations! Check it out.
Christmas Forum or Message Board #2: My Merry Christmas Christmas Forums
This is another very thorough Christmas forum. It takes a few more seconds to load on my computer, probably because of the graphics. You can visit it at http://mymerrychristmas.com/forum/. (You’ll have to wait a few hours or so to get approved to post.) It’s a fantastic and very throughout message board. It’s full of people in the Christmas spirit discussing advice on everything from unique Christmas traditions and gifts, to controversies over using the term “Merry Christmas’. It has a recipes section full of recipes for Christmas cookies, dinner, appetizers and much more. If you’re looking for “gifts in a jar” recipes its there. There is also a Christmas lights and decorations area, and even a help wanted section. You can also discuss other holidays such as Valentine’s Day.
Christmas Forum or Message Board #3: iVillage Christmas Discussion Board
Another Christmas forum that is worth a visit is the iVillage Christmas board. You can go to it here: http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-ppcmas9 . Its not as details as the ones above, you but could still get some advice on everything from Christmas songs how to decorate your Christmas tree. There is also a forum just for Christmas recipes called “Holiday Recipes.” You can visit it here: http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-fdholidayfds/.
Christmas Forum or Message Board #4: Cafemom.com Christmas Groups
Even if you’re not a mom, you can still visit Cafemom if you want. There are several Christmas and Holiday online groups where you can discuss Christmas till your hearts content. Simply go to the groups section and search “Christmas” and you’ll find a plethora of groups. The largest one is “I love Christmas” which has over 6400 members.
Christmas Forum or Message Board #5: Topix Christmas Forum
Another final Christmas chat spot is the Christmas forum on Topix. Here’s the link: http://www.topix.com/forum/holidays/christmas. It’s not very organized, but one plus is that you don’t have to sign up to join. It has a variety of different discussions related to Christmas. It is more focused on Christmas in the news. For example, there is currently a discussion on Christmas-related crime.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
