Happier Holidays: December 2008 Headache Blog Carnival

Welcome to the December 2008 Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival, our first anniversary edition.

Generally speaking, a blog carnival is a collection of links to a variety of a blogs on a central topic. The Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival has been created to provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with unique opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

For the December 2008 carnival I solicited submissions on the topic of “Maximizing Your Enjoyment of the Holiday Season”. I also welcomed entries of general interest to headache and migraine sufferers.
