I pasted the 2017 list here and have indicated with asterisks in front those that are either ongoing (never end) or that have already been confirmed to be running again in 2018 and deleted any that are not continuing. If I missed any, I'm sorry. I'll correct or update if you let me know of errors or omissions by posting here or by PMing me.

Sorry... fixed.


Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes Challenge and the Valentine Challenge (both in February) will be happening in 2018.


Thanks for the update


I will be hosting this release challenge again next year. Look for a new thread later in the month.

Thanks for putting together this calendar.


I check your list often.


hopefully and update the list.


I've posted the themes for the year here:

Thanks. I updated the list above. [The themes look good.]


3 per week:

And the Asian zodiac:
(now includes list of doggish words)


in 2018 it will be Feb 23 - March 8



Challenge hosts so I can either confirm they are running their Challenges again in 2018 or delete them.


I had to come back and double-check to make sure I don't miss any. :D

Thank you slt for the handy list!


The dates this year will be June 24th to July 7th, 14 days in total. The special theme this year is books by or about Robertson Davies.



See GoryDetail's note:

Update: I'm expanding the Wine+Food challenge to a month, from Feb. 15 through Mar. 15, as per requests from last year's thread.


If there are no asterisks in front of your Challenge, no one has confirmed to me that it will run again this year. Please advise so I can update the list so we can all plan ahead.




I just learned that solittletime isn't hosting that one this year - I think I was looking at the 2017 list of challenges and didn't notice the changes to this year's list. (I suppose I could run it myself, but if anyone else would like to, feel free!)



and to correct the April Showers/May Flowers dates.

I still wish I'd hear from other hosts so I can update the rest of the year.
