CC Month of Celebration.jpg

 

Hey everyone,

 

It’s coming up to that time of year again, where we hold our Month of Celebration here on the Community Center. 

 

For anyone who is new to the CC, we’ve been doing this since 2017, and it works a little bit like an advent calendar: each day throughout December, a different community member will start a new topic about something positive. We cover a huge range of things, both hosting and non-hosting related, from stories, to experiences, tips, milestones, traditions, fun facts - all sorts. 

 

It’s been a difficult year for everyone, so this would be a really nice way to keep a sense of positivity throughout the month, and end the year with something happy. 

 

Last year we had some fantastic topics, from a poem by @Inna22, to a topic on your most fun (or funny!) hosting experiences by @Laura2592, and a great insight into breakfast as a way to share cultural traditions with guests from @Miloud0.

 

We can’t do this without your input though, so if you’re keen to contribute then please reply to this thread and let us know which date (or dates) you would like to post a topic  😊

**Update: Extended Month of Celebration Posts**

 

As so many lovely new members were keen to take part this year, we have extended the Month of Celebration for the first few days of January - yay!

Hopefully you’ll all enjoy getting involved, whether posting a topic, reading or commenting, and a gigantic THANK YOU to everyone taking part  💙

 

This really is what the Community is all about, and we will benefit from this daily dose of humour, positivity and experience-sharing now more than ever.

 

Katie, @Lizzie, @Liv@Nick & @Quincy.

Hi all - I'm taking up one of the CC Managers' (Liv) invitation to do a post for our Monthly Celebrations in December. She noticed that I've been popping into the CC quite a lot. Lol! Caught! 
Seriously, though, I do love to read your opinions and suggestions so guess what? This one is for you, the Airbnb Hosts who have passed on some invaluable lessons to me as a relative newbie to hosting.
Thanks for your openess to share fortrightly your experiences with guests - no holds barred. Love it!  Your tips, warnings and suggestions have helped to guide me to smart hosting which I started in December 2019 (signed up in 2018 but had to defer due to a heavy workload which included travel). In August I successfully hosted my first ever long term guest - for almost 2 months!  I was excited for the opportunity and hoped for the best but worried about all the things that could go wrong - what if guest got on my nerves? Will she run the AC 24/7,  have too many visitors, get too comfy and break my rules?
That's where you - the Airbnb Hosts came in. As the what-ifs scenarios played in my mind I would turn to the CC to search for the topic and how you would handle it.  Priceless!
Trust me, if any of you want to write a book on hosting, I would encourage you to go for it. It would 'sell off!' (to use a Jamaican slang).  Happy December! and hoping for a prosperous 2021 for us all!

I will take December 28, if it's still free. I haven't participated in this before, because I was unaware of it.

Hey @Kristan13 thanks so much for volunteering to get involved - we'd love to see some pics of your yacht listing 😃 We've actually just filled all the December slots, but if you're willing to then we can extend the Month of Celebration into the first week of Jan - how do you feel about doing the 1st January? 🗓
