CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY!!!!!

*****EDITED -- This contest is now closed. No more comments will be accepted at this time -- we will leave it at 51 and draw a winner!!!*****


I am sponsoring a little giveaway in honor of the Christmas season and the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ. I hope I get a lot of participation!!! I will ship to any of the 50 states and all of Canada -- sorry, no other countries. Anyways, here is what I am planning on giving away -- but who knows, I might throw in something else when the time comes to send it. :)

1. a box of chocolatey chai tea -- this is my new favorite drink!!!
2. a box of dark chocolate mint candy canes
3. a pair of penguin socks
4. a little striped mitten Christmas ornament
5. a cute stuffed snowman -- you can hang him on your tree or sit him wherever
6. a little gingerbread man picture, also can be used as an ornament -- hand-stitched by ME!

Anyways, here's what ya gotta do. It's pretty easy -- just leave a comment to enter! In the comment, please mention your name and your favorite Christmas treat. Oh, and tell your friends. If you have a blog, I would ask that you put up a post and link to this giveaway so others can enter also! If you don't have a blog, obviously don't worry about that.

I am going on vacation tomorrow for a little while, so I won't be around to pick the winner for a bit. That means you have a LOT of time to enter and tell other people. I will be home on November 30, and I will probably pick the winner and post it on December 1.

I am expecting to come home and see a lot of comments, so don't disappoint me. :)

How fun!!! My favrite Christmas treat... WOW! Egg Nog, Hot Peppermint Chocolate, Peppermint Coffee, Egg Nog Chai (Yes, I'm a drinker. LOL). And... there's nothing like a plain old-fashioned candy cane!
Please enter me. This looks GREAT!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year...I start to prepare for it in September already cause I love it sooo much. I love the lights, the tree, the warmth of a fire, and the family time spent at this time of year. However this year living six hours it is harder to do it with family.
My favorite Christmas treat is just Christmas paraphenalia...you know anything that decorates the house to make it more Christmassy!
Yeah for Christmas!

Rachel said...

Leave it to you to have a cute pair of socks in the giveaway! Aaahhh...fond memories there. :)

My favorite Christmas treat is most definitely peppermint fudge. I can't keep my hands off the stuff!

Anne said...

I'm trying not to disappoint you, so I'm leaving a comment:o).

As to the favorite Christmas treat, I'm pretty hard-pressed to find only *one*, but I always love Hot Chocolate (which is a treat for me!) while I'm watching the lights twinkle on the Christmas tree and music is playing softly in the background... ahh the bliss! Have a great vacation!

Kay said...

OOOO!!! How exciting! I absolutely love when my mom makes nut rolls for the holidays and when I have a nice hot cup of hot cocoa and a candy cane in it!

Abbi said...

Oooh...ME, ME, pick ME! :)

Hhhhmmm...my favorite Christmas treat would be very similar to my favorite "rest of the year" treat...dark chocolate. :) Maybe at Christmas it would be nice if it was mixed with something mint-ish. But really, I like just about any Christmas treat. I'm not that particular when it comes to cookies and desserts.

Thanks for the giveaway. (pick me)

Arlene said...

Oooh, I love me some giveaways... not that I ever win any. Well, I won ONE. Once. Maybe this will be my second time... but I won't hold my breath, LOL!

I replied to your comment on my blog, but, just in case you didn't go back to see it... You should write in to Laura Williams (at her blog) and see if she will host your giveaway on her contests galore posts. That would help increase your stats :)

Oh, and my favorite Christmas treat would definitely be egg nog. I never drink it straight, though. I have to cut it with milk. Mmmm, now I want some, hehehe!

Okay, now that I've left you the longest comment ever in blogdom, I'll publish this!

Just dropping you a line to let you know that I have added your contest to several related categories in our "Free Online Sweepstakes, Contests, & Competitions Directory" (MrPrizes.com). Please feel free to keep me up to date on future listings. Have a great day!

As far as my favorite Christmas treat...it would have to be the cup of hot chocolate and watching my children's smiles.

Penny said...

I love Christmas. I enjoy driving around to see all the houses lit up and the festive displays in the yards or on the roofs.
Some of my favourite treats are shortbreads, butter tarts and mincemeat tarts.

Great contest and very nice prizes

Sweet Mummy said...

I am an American in Canada, TOO! PrayingKaren sent me over this way. HELLO there! I'm in BC - have been here for 9.5 years now.

My favorite Christmas treat - that is a tough one! I think I'd have to say all the baking. Of course, I love chocolate, but we usually make lots of different kinds of cookies, too. And 'no-bake cookies' (I've heard them called haystacks or beaver dams, too) with coconut, oats, cocoa and butter and sugar, and nuts... YUM! They're so easy, I don't know why we don't make them more often.

Kimberly B. said...

Our house is full of treats at Christmas time! My favorite are the pies my mom makes for Christmas dinner, including Derby pie (like a pecan pie, but with chocolate chips!).

Cecelia said...

Cool Giveaway ! My favorite Christmas treat(s) are: Egg Nog, Peanut Butter Balls, Green Punch and Potato Candy.

Audra Marie said...
