I’m doing a Christmas contest. Goodies and stuff. I also ramble about Christmas and stuff I like. 🙂
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things
So I’m a nut about Christmas. I love the holiday. I love Christmas carols and cookies and I don’t even really mind shopping. I like giving presents and I love getting them. I love Christmas musics and carols and I love the sermons around Christmas season.
One of my favorite Christmas specials is The Charlie Brown Christmas special…and Linus. Cuz of this part…(grabbed from IMDB).
“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'”
Which is from the Book of Luke.
I also love A Year Without a Santa Claus. But you all probably wanna hear about the contest.
For the next few days, I’m going to run a contest where I give away some of –or tokens of–my favorite things.
Things like this!
It’s a gift set from LUSH, my favorite cosmetics store… they use all natural ingredients and the stuff smells good enough to eat.
Tomorrow, I’ll add more prizes to the goodie bag…um, box.

I didn’t love Christmas for a long time because I’d buried my mother Christmas Eve morning. But I went through the motions for my girls who were really little (one born the year after my mother passed) and I didn’t want them to wonder if there was something wrong with celebrating. I managed to get past it, but it took time. Now, I’m back to all the decorations and music and movies (I have a looooooooooong list of those) and I’m happy again at this time of year.
Merry Christmas, Shiloh. Hope Santa brings you your heart’s desire 🙂
My favorite thing about Christmas time, other than spending time with family and pigging out on the cookies, is spoiling myself a little. I love a big mug of peppermint hot chocolate topped off with as many marshmallows as I can cram in the mug. This is paired nicely with a bubble bath and my favorite book. A few candles and Christmas tunes in the background to set the mood make it just about perfect.
I love Shiloh Walker and I can’t wait for Broken Blade…the suspense is killing me!!!
Merry Christmas Shiloh. I love seeing my kids faces when they see their gifts or when they see Christmas lights. Seeing my family I never get to see much is another nice addition.
I love The Year Without a Santa Clause too, Shiloh! The Heat Miser/Snow Miser song is just the best!
I love decorating and wrapping presents!
I love all the Christmas cookies of course!
I love decorating for the holidays and buying and wrapping presents.
I love lying in bed in the winter, it’s soooo warm underneath the covers. Allthough it does make it physically difficult to get up in the morning…and I find myself getting to work late most mornings, sigh.
We collect toys at work for Toys for Tots. I have been lucky enough to help deliver them to the drop off site and it is an awesome experience. the Marines are so appreciative and are so thankful to receive the toys. It makes my holiday for me!
Making and sharing cookies and candy, listening to Christmas music, finding “that” gift for everyone, stuffing the stockings.
I admit it – I love fruit cake, real fruit cake made with fruit, not citron. Fudge is there too. I love all the light and all the baking. The warmth of the Christmas season is the best!
I love Christmas lights and wrapped presents under the tree. I also love holiday cookies.
The Year Without a Santa Clause has always been my favorite. My favorite thing about Christmas is getting to spend time with all of my family.
I love Christmas, It is the time when our big family comes together and celebrate it. love gifts and all the food and dessert! yumm! but most of all I love it because I get to spend it with family! 🙂
Some of my favorite Christmas things are
My Christmas village..I get an extension every year as a gift from a family member. (well this year I’m calling it my drunk town because the people keep falling over, so I just give up and now they are given that name..lol)
Love Christmas music, Bing Crosby’s White Christmas and I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas are my top 2.
Movies…A Christmas Story, Holiday Inn and Its A Wonderful Life.
And I love decorating the house.
I love the music, the decorations, the movies– the food….oooh, and the lights. I guess the lights are my favorite because they make everything seem so magical, especially if it snows too:)
Merry Christmas, Shiloh!
I love the snow during the winter time. I think the white blanket is soooo pretty 🙂 I also love the Christmas lights. I’m like a little kid 🙂
Merry Christmas Shiloh! One of my favorite things about Christmas(or even just this time of year)… The smell of a Real Christmas Tree.
Christmas music, we put it on while opening our presents Christmas morning!
Christmas morning breakfast for our little family: bacon and eggs, tomatoes, toast and coffee!
Getting together with friends and being happy!
I’m crazy for Christmas music by Straight No Chaser & Miracle on 34 the Street.
I love snow at Christmas and putting up the tree with my kids. We bake cookies and go to look at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve night. I love the innocence that the holiday brings out in kids. This time of year reminds me that there is still good in the world and we would all be a little better off if we let this season last in our hearts throughout the year. Namaste!
Merry Christmas, and thanks for the giveaway! I too love Lush products
Oh, forgot to add, my fav movie is the Muppet Christmas Carol
Love the music and lights!
I don’t really have a favorite Christmas movie. I just like all the old Christmas tv specials that I remember from childhood.
I have a close tie between 3 of them.
Buddy the Elf, whats your favorite color?
My favorite holiday movie is White Christmas – Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney… Elf is a new favorite. I like it more each time I watch it.
The Polar Express. Just love the movie and the soundtrack is on my rotation of Christmas music. I usually bake cookies Christmas Eve and then we all watch A Christmas Movie. I also like the remake of Miracle on 34th Street
I don’t have a favorite Christmas cookie, I just love them all!!! 🙂
I love the no bake cookies the best. Sugar cookies with icing comes next.
white chocolate macadamia nut
