I’m starting this off by saying I just loved and was so incredibly inspired by JMatt’s story challenge he created to bring awareness to mental health. I’m a huge advocate of mental health, and it was a fantastic growth opportunity for me to show that side of me on Instagram. I just loved the challenge idea, so I figured my mild (*cough extreme) obsession with Christmas would be perfect for December. (ALTHOUGH mine is December specific – you can start up JMatt’s mental health challenge ANY time.)
If it hasn’t been obvious, Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. Everybody is always happy during this time of year, since Kwanzaa and Hanukkah also occur during December. I’m just so in love with happy people and solid holiday cheer.
To prep for some Christmas fun, I decided to create this 25 Days of Christmas Instagram story challenge! We’re starting December FIRST, and I’d love for you to join me! Tag me in your stories (IG handle @mirandaknudtson) so I can follow along! What a fun way to countdown to Christmas!
