Over the past several months, we've gone back to add tags to our eight years of HoliBlog posts. (That's more than a thousand posts!)
The resulting "tag cloud" is pretty handy (it's floating over to the right of this post), as you can click on your favorite topics and read all the related blog posts, along with photos and videos from over the years.
We even have tags for a few young-uns who have made repeated guest appearances on the HoliBlog over the years, much to this father's Tweeted delight:

... yes, Christmas!
While most folks are putting away their Easter decor, we're awakening the elves.
And here's Cheryl, fastening a big bow on one of the light poles in our Christmas Plaza. It's so nice to see our beautiful trees greening up.
Do you think Cheryl is noticing that a certain roller coaster in our Halloween section needs a little dressing up, too?
Ah, great minds think alike. The very next day, the Coaster Cats were up top with fresh, colorful flags.
Raven premiered back in 1995. Lots of flags have waved from on top of that lift hill over the years.
These flags went up on Wednesday - which was good timing, as Thursday was incredibly windy and the flags were whipping wildly all day.
We office drones have been hearing spring test runs on Raven all week. Most of us are longing to hop on board.
The click-click-click of the train heading up the lift hill is tantalizing, as is that rushing sound as the train flies down the first hill.
The sound is so familiar, and yet something's missing ...

Kitty's Tea Party is here!
Of course, my juvenile brain reverts back to Bugs Bunny and "there's nothing as sociable as a nice cup of tea, I always say; how many lumps do you want?"
Maybe that explains the hard hats ...
Tea for two?
Can't have a tea party without a tea pot.
That's one heck of a cozy ...
Whether it's tea for two or tea for three (or tea for your whole brood - brood/brewed, get it?), we hope you'll give our new ride a spin this season up in Holidog's FunTown.
Kitty's Tea Party opens May 4, on Holiday World's opening day.

One of the most popular songs in 1961, when this photo was taken, was Stand By Me.
It wasn't a Christmas song, but the title certainly suits ol' Santa.
According to Erin E., who shared this wonderful photo of her great-grandparents, that's Claude and Lennie Russell on the left, and Martha and Amel Knight. Claude and Lennie Russell were from West Baden, Indiana. And Martha and Amel Knight lived in West Baden at the time. This was a big trip as Claude drove his brand new 1961 Ford to Santa Claus.
That iconic Santa statue is still here, in the Christmas section of Holiday World. Can you imagine how many photos have been taken with Santa over the years?
