for Christmas-themed holiday content
by brittany taylor | November 30, 2017
When I worked at The Magazine, holiday content started at mid-summer. Coming up with puns involving winter coats and hot cocoa was painful—especially the week our office’s A.C. up ‘n’ died.
Back then, I had a Christmas-in-July ritual. As soon as our fall issue closed, I opened up Spotify and dragged-and-dropped my way to a carol-packed playlist. The bum-bum-bum of The Nutcracker Suite and a sassy “Baby It’s Cold Outside” never failed to get me thinking snowflakes instead of sunburns.
Holidays in the digital world are a different story. Sure, you can plan way, way ahead. More likely, though, you’re a bit of a procrastinator on the content-publishing front. But that's OK. Like the shopping elves hitting the malls on Christmas Eve, you hit it hard at the last minute—and you want to hit it out of the park.
I’m here to help. Use these Christmas-themed blog post prompts well and no one will know you stayed up late to hit publish instead of sneaking a peek at Santa.
