    Such adorable ornaments! Although I already have one that I LOVE, I decided I too needed to enter this contest! haha!!! Well, my favourite Christmas tradition would be baking cookies, and Christmas shopping. It’s great to spend some extra special time with family and friends, and it allows for everyone to become a little closer and to put on an extra bright smile =)

      Haha linds, how’d I know you would be the first to enter (seconds after I posted it too?!) I’d have to agree with you on your fave Christmas tradition…I can’t wait to make some cookies and memories this year!! :)

    Hey! Thanks for letting me know about your giveaway! I’d love the red one :)

    Let’s see my favorite Christmas tradition has to be watching It’s a Wonderful Life with my dad and little sister. We do it every year. And we’re the only 3 in our family who will watch it! Even though it’s a sad film, it’s also happy too at the end, and I just love it!

    Oh and I followed your blog on BlogLovin for a while now!

      Hey Gabrielle!! :) Thanks for entering! What a sweet tradition, my dad and I watch The Grinch every year – definitely not as sad as It’s a Wonderful Life. (I love that movie!!)

      Thanks for following! I really appreciate it!

    O.K. you made me do IT ! I was so trying to beeeeeehave all mornin’ here in the office and then this…..couldn’t resist. Tried for a while but no , so not working. We have so many Christmas traditions, where shall I begin.It’s a whole Christmas week of celebrating, starting with Bean’s BD, then Jesus’ BD, followed by Jay’s BD. The cabin has to be decorated by Nov. 15 th.Putting out the first ever Christmas decoration I ever bought…..a candle snowman…..he’s 35.Yvonne little white ceramic angel has to go on the front of the tree and the ” FAMOUS PICKLE” has to be hidden somewhere in the tree. Wrapping presents until very late Christmas Eve ( this one is one I could live without!).Open stocking stuffers Christmas Eve, always!. Tasting menu for Christmas Eve dinner…..a little taste of everything Christmassy. Chritsmas Carols to follow around the piano. Christmas morning brunch, followed by opening presents…that order was always reversed until the kids finally grew up ( just happened lately BTW). Turkey dinner with all the trimmings.Turkey pot pie on Boxing day ….always!. Raspberry Trifle for desert! Buying my fav niecie a new pair of adorable PJ”s for Christmas every year for the last 20 years……ooops gave that one away. Making red jello and green jello for Christmas dinner even though no one eats it any more ( a throwover from when the kids were little). Making homemade apple sauce.Lots and lots of baking. Cookies and a glass of whatever it is Santa’s fav drink is this year. Sitting around the table after Christmas dinner talking and laughing and listening to all the crazy stories my kids have to tell and wondering where was I when all this was happening ? Going for long walks in the Provincial Park and the fabulous Beach where we live before Christmas Eve dinner ( yes it’s very pretty in the winter too!) with all my family & puppy. But the best tradition of all is reading the story in the Bible every Christmas morning (before any of the presents are opened) about the birth of Jesus. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” Luke 2:11 . Without his birth there would be no Christmas.

    There’s a ton more however I have to get back to work…..I’m still on the clock. See what you made me do ???????? I’m trying to beeeeeeeeeehave but you’re not making it easy girlie.

    Oh by the way I looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the blue one!

    Love the ornaments! My favorite Christmas tradition is watching Muppet’s Christmas Carol while eating tons of Christmas junk food with my siblings. We have been doing it every year since that movie came out. The junk food of choice is Puppy chow, that chex mix thing?

    If I win I would love the red one!


    • December 5, 2010 1:47 PM

      Thanks!! Ahh, I love that movie, have you seen the new Christmas Carol yet? Mmm, junk food is the best, I love chex mix. Thanks for entering Bessy! :)

    i’ve not used bloglovin’ but because of this, i now am! :)

    hehe. my favorite tradition is to give my loved ones gifts that often make them happy, and to spend the morning and/or night at church for the annual christmas celebrations. it just makes me feel so at home everytime i’m there. :)

    oh, another one would be quite a new tradition with the boyfriend – shopping for christmas presents together and wrapping ’em up at his place.
