Weekend Challenge: Funny Christmas Quotes

Alright my dears, I am in charge of the Weekend Challenge for this first gorgeous weekend in December and I decided we needed some funny Christmas quotes--WOO HOO!!

Choose a number between 1 and 26 and I will give an amusing quote to keep you in the holiday mood and stop you from stressing too much about holiday gifts, decorating, party planning and/or baking.  I also know that many people have a hard time emotionally over the holidays and I hope this nuttiness keeps your spirits bright :):)

I also hope this Yuletide craziness inspires you, so please be as creative as you can--drabbles/fics can be as long as you want but at least 200 words and you can do any sort of art work the spirit moves you    Just post your work by Thursday night at 11:59pm EST, and you'll be golden.  Lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

I am not creative in any way with artwork, so if you want an icon, I will have to ask for help, but I can give you a drabble or add to my WIP.

Say What Friday

Hello my darlings,

Sorry I'm late with this today. Been a strange week for me and we'll leave it at that.

Hope everybody had a good week and got a head start on their holiday preprations.

This week's quote has to do with Christmas since the final countdown to the big day begins tomorrow.

"It's beginning to look like Christmas everywhere you go."

Do with it what you will.

Remember to update your numbers before hitting the hay tonight.

Welcome to December Daily Count Challenge!

Behind the cut you will find a list of everyone participating in the Daily Count Challenge and their day. I'm 99% certain I got everyone who signed up and put them on the correct days, but if I missed up, or a day doesn't work out, comment to this entry and let me know.

Every Friday I will put up a reminder post for the next week. If someone forgets to post that they've done their writing for the day, the next person will know it's their turn and can post after they've done their writing.

For example, it's 05 December and katleept hasn't made a post saying that they've done their daily writing, on 06 December, Dreamy can post when they've done their writing to keep things moving on.

I think I've covered everything, but if not, please let me know.
