    The 2014 Holiday Season is upon us! What does that mean to those of us at SHS! You, your family and/or your child can participate in the annual Holiday card exchange!
    This has become a tradition among Secular Homeschool Members!

    Whether you are a new member, old member, never exchanged before member, whatever kind of member.....as long as you are a contributing member of SHS, you can participate!!

    If you go to your Forum page, scroll down and click on the SHS Christmas/Holiday card exhange and read the rules and directions! Easy Peasy!

    To participate in this exchange,well we all know how this works right? NO? Ok it's simple, just start a new thread with your family or child's name and address in it. As others start new threads simply reply to their post to let them know that you are sending out a card to them. Then they will do the same for you!! Please put in your post how your family celebrates the Holidays (ex. Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule,Winter Solstice, etc)

    Now your cards can be store bought BUT our personal favorite is handmade cards, even story cards with your family's traditions and/or recipes around the holidays or family newsletters of everything exciting you did this year.

    The sky is the limit!

    Want to know what the most important part is? To have FUN! Make connections with other members, make a friend, and have fun!!!
    Happy Holidays and Happy Exchanging!

    PS: IF you are a brand new member or longtime lurker to Secular Homeschool, please understand that since this involves names and addresses of members.... you must have at least 2 approved posts before you are allowed the password for the Holiday Card Exchange forum! One of those posts must be an INTRO post plus 1 additional post! Thanks!

    We're celebrating a HUGE milestone at SHS this week. We've just recently had our 20,000th site registration, which means 20,000 families have sought out a secular homeschooling community and have utilized our secular homeschooling resources since our debut in 2009. That's thrilling!!

    We want to thank each of you who have contributed to making SecularHomeschool.com one of the most active homeschooling sites on the web. If you've discovered a new curriculum in our directory, located a local like-minded support group on our support group map, or have made connections with someone in your same boat, then we admins feel that our hard work in building and growing SHS has more than paid off.

    If you have feedback about where you'd like to see SecularHomeschool.com go from here, we'd certainly love to hear it. Sound off in our Feedback Forum, or even use the Contact Form to send us a message. We're here for YOU, which means your input and ideas are important to us. You matter!!

    BIG thanks to Pandahoneybee, Aanswsmom, and Fairielover for keeping everything running so smoothly around here day to day. This place simply wouldn't exist without all their TLC.

    I'm just so proud to see not just this site, but secular homeschooling in general evolving into a strong and confident demographic in the homeschool community. Here's to 20,000 more, SHS!!
