Every Holiday Season we like to remind you about an awesome eBook that the DOC created collectively a few years back: Nuggets of Wisdom from the Diabetes Community.

The book was compiled from entries submitted to the first-ever DiabetesMine Holiday Survival Sweepstakes, in which hundreds of community members submitted their best advice for handling an assortment of holiday-related challenges, like holiday parties, exercising during the winter, travel, and avoiding too much food.

(As you may know, we just announced winners of the 2012 'Mine Holiday Sweepstakes earlier today -- Congrats to those sharing their "aha" moments!)

Rather than let all the wonderful words of wisdom accumulated over the course of that first 5-week contest fade away, we decided to compile selected entries into an eBook hopefully serves as a reference guide throughout the year. After all, it's not like unhealthy food or busy schedules just suddenly disappear after New Year's Day!

The eBook was beautifully designed by online advocate Gina Capone, with editing help from our own Allison (Blass) Nimlos and D-blogger Scott Johnson. Plus a big thanks goes out to all the readers who submitted their advice and also photos to illustrate the eBook. It's a real community collaboration!

Happy Holiday Survival, All!
