Elsie… won!  Help me out though….I can’t find an email for you!  Send me an email please with an address and I’ll mail this out to you asap!


I’m so excited to do a Christmas giveaway! It’s such a special time of year to me. I love Christmas….I love the spirit that hangs in the air. It’s good family time and take a break time. Always a good thing for me! Here in Indiana….the weather pretty much rocks too! I love the snow and cold. Growing up in sunny Florida has a way of making you a little crazy about a “real” winter!

What’s up for grabs? A sweet Christmas story. One that is an easy quick read and good to share with the family. If you’re interested in winning The Paper Bag Christmas by Kevin Alan Milne……please leave a comment on this post by Sunday, December 20th at 1:00pm.

Answer this question for your entry. What makes Christmas time special to you?

Good luck! I’ll pick a winner on Sunday afternoon and contact them that night. Be sure you leave me an email (if you’re not a blogger). I want to mail this out to be enjoyed for Christmas!  That’s what works for me!

    “The Paper Bag Christmas” is such a sweet story! What a great give-away!

    Christmas for me is family, hand-made ornaments on the tree, and SNOW on the ground would be perfect! Oh, and snowball cookies coming out of the oven!

    I found you on Pioneer Woman’s site and after meeting her in NYC, I have a give-away on my site: a signed copy of “Pioneer Woman Cooks” cookbook!

    Do stop by! Merry Christmas!

    Honestly – celebrating Jesus’ birth with my family makes Christmas very special to me. We have our fun opening Christmas presents, but I love to reflect on Luke chapter 2 and thinking about that ultimate Christmas gift from God in the person of Jesus Christ.

    Oh – and thanks for your comment on my blog. Index cards and purple pens are my new obsession, er, collection… lol

    A Merry Christmas to me is the spirit of the Season, an emphasis on kindness and goodness…and what makes it special to me is the new tradition we have: Each year my family visits a local church display of over 600 Nativities, on loan from local families. The Creches are large and small, of many different materials and styles, including clay, stone, wood, paper, cloth, marble, seashells, and makes the Season bright to be together and witness the Beauty of Love.

    I just wanted to stop by and thank you for leaving a comment on my 16-Bean Soup post. I’m from the south, too, and love beans. I also saw that you are having a giveaway so I thought I would enter that too. What makes Christmas special to me is being with family and celebrating our Savior. This year it will be fun to see my son open his presents. He won’t really understand it all yet since he’s not yet 2, but he’ll definitely get the idea that opening presents is fun!

    Christmas is special because it allows families to get together. The “goodness” in people comes out and I love the twinkle of the lights on the tree.

    Thanks you for this nice giveaway.

    I know I’m past the time limit for entry to your giveaway, but I thought I’d answer anyway. I love Christmas. I love how it makes conversation about Jesus easier with strangers. I love the lights, glitter, and glow. I love that people want to be kind and do good things for others. I love the ‘magic’ of the season. It’s a holiday like no other.

    I also wanted to say thank you for visiting the domestic fringe last week and leaving me a nice comment about my Phyllis Diller tree.

    Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
