I was surprised this morning with a wonderful free Holiday Planning Guide! The plan covers Thanksgiving, Christmas, and touches on other cultural holidays as well.

A few things you will find in the Free Holiday Planning Guide:

– and some wonderful recipes.

This Almost Always Organized Mom gives the Holiday Planning guide by the Indie Biz Chicks (who have some great free business guides as well for women running their own business) two thumbs up.
