Hi, Chickies!

Over the years, we've had a lot of great threads about how to handle the holidays while following SBD. We even have some specific threads in the Recipe Forum that are dedicated to SBD-safe holiday recipes! :T

I've compiled links to all the holiday threads on the board I could find. If you find some that I've missed, just post a link to them below and I'll add 'em to this list. I've listed the year of the thread after the title, in parenthesis. Be aware that the list of foods to avoid/enjoy has changed over the years, so some of this information may be out of date.

Hopefully, this'll help keep this great information handy for us all!
