A Festive Bonbon linkup – coming soon

Feeling Festive yet?

Here’s something new and fun from the team that brings you What’s On Your Bookshelf each month. Jo, Donna, Sue and I are hosting a special one-off seasonal link-up called Festive Bonbons.

What does your festive Season look like?

Although 2020 and 2021 haven’t been the easiest years, there is still so much to feel grateful for and to celebrate, and we want you to join us.

However you celebrate the holiday season, whatever your traditions and customs, we’d love to hear about them, if you’d like to share with us.

To start you off we’ve come up with a list of 10 questions – you can choose to answer all, some, or go completely rogue and answer none. It’s your call.

Festive bonbon questions
Festive bonbon questions
  1. Christmas Tree – do you have one, when does it go up, who decorates it, is there a theme or is it miss-matched?
  2. Christmas carols – yes or no, faves? Traditional or modern.
  3. Christmas books – any faves you want to tell us about?
  4. Christmas movies – any you watch year after year?
  5. Christmas cake – yes or no?
  6. Chocolate nuts or fruit?
  7. Christmas traditions?
  8. What’s on the table?
  9. Christmas memories?
  10. All I want for Christmas is…

Why bonbons?

We feel that the word ‘bonbons’ creates a festive feel. Bonbons are small bits of Christmas cheer like our questions 🙂

A bonbon is a sweet or small confection, especially a small ball coated in chocolate.

When will we be posting our bonbons?

Our posts will go live at 9am (AEDST) on Friday December 10 and if you’d like to link up with us, you can add a pingback to our post or simply join the link party by clicking on the blue link below (note it won’t open until Friday 10th). Or, you might want to get involved via Instagram or your social media of choice. We even have a hashtag you can use #festivebonbons.

Donna, Jo, Sue and I are looking forward to you joining us – and to brightening the world this holiday season one bonbon at a time. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

It’s time to get festive!

I’ll leave you with this Awkward Photo from a few years ago – it always makes me smile 🙂

Note your diaries and take a look at the questions to see how you’d answer them.

See you soon.

  1. I have a real Xmas tree in the front garden. We bought it for Xmas 2017 when my ‘baby’ cousin came over from Australia and we met her family for the first time. It’s only small and lives in a pot, but because it has never been brought inside it is healthy. After Christmas 2020 I tied a ribbon on for each day of lockdown until Easter this year, it had become an Eastermas tree. It still has the ribbons as we still have a pandemic, the Xmas lights are back on. But my favourite Xmas trees are The Australian Christmas trees with their deep yellow blossoms at Christmas, they remind me of our first Christmas as migrants, when there were plenty on the empty bush land around the new suburban houses.

  2. ‘brighten the world one bon bon at a time’ – Iove it! I’ll be there for the link up Deb. I have been planning a Xmas memories post so will combine it with your ideas. Your family photo is amazing and fabulous!

    1. Thanks Jen, I’m so glad you will join us and use your own prompts you don’t have to use all of ours if it doesn’t fit your post :). That photo is one of my all time faves!


  3. Hi Deb.
    I thought the image of bon-bons was perfect and obvious in meaning. I’m chipping away at a mental rock, which if I’m clever enough, will soon yield a new short story of fiction. This time I’m taking a swing at historical fiction, except that the real history of the place is not so spectacular as to be much of a draw unless you grew up near it. The characters will be this story.
    I may take a run at producing some bon-bons to share. It sounds fun.
