It's Christmastime! And an AMAZING...DID I SAY AMAZING GIVE-AWAY!
I absolutely love Christmas! I mean who doesn't, really?! Above is a collage of some of my Christmas decor. I love "trees" so I have several. 2 big ones and then lots of little ones. For fun I bought an orange tree from Tree Topia. They have many festive and novel trees...check out their web site by clicking on their name. Why orange? Well, for some reason I am drawn to the color orange. I started posting "Orange Item of the Day" on my Instagram page but that is not important right now!
This year I seem to be more up on getting things done than in previous years. Maybe because I have had to stop working because of M.S. Who knew there was an upside? But that is not important right now either....
Here's what I want from you....
What is your favorite Christmas tradition? Tell me in the comment portion of the post. Now, for those of you who think you do not have a Google account and can't post, here's what you do. Click on "comments" link at the bottom of this post. Then click in the box and write a comment, in this case I'd like to hear what is your favorite Christmas tradition. Then click on Name/url. In the box put your name...it doesn't have to be your real name, but something you can identify if you win. You don't have to put a url, it's optional. Then push "publish your comment". It's that easy!
So, let's go...I'm gonna tell you my favorite Christmas tradition....
I use to love that fact that we move the Wise Men (with camels and now a star) around the house. It was so fun to wake up and see where they were on their way to the nativity scene. We use to do this to be able to talk to the kids about the birth of Jesus and what was real and what was not. But now, the kids are grown and gone and it is mostly a formality that Gene and I do.
I would say at this time in my life I love the pickle search. Mostly because my 30ish age kids do not want me to stop it. So I have to have 2 (now 3 pickle presents) on Christmas Eve because they still want to search for it! Over the years, due to the fact that I have different trees, I have had to modify the pickle search. But it is always fun seeing them spend 40 minutes looking for it on a tree LOADED with ornaments!
So...what are we playing for....wait for it...wait....
I am giving away a D23 membership! Yes you heard me right! I will give you an one year D23 membership!
Now let me explain this. you may NOT be getting what is seen here, I have never given away a D23 membership, so I am not sure EXACTLY what you get. But you can see on their site, what they say you get and the watch is in the picture...but I can't say for sure.
This is to show you what D23 does. They send you a beautiful magazine 4 times a year. Through out the year you get little things. Last year I had that watch waiting for me on my door step one day. I don't know what they will send or that it will be as grand as a watch. But, you do get the magazine, and will get emails and inside info on all things Disney. I'm guessing it will be a great thing to have this coming year due to the fact that the new Cars Land will be opening!
So, you can read about D23 by clicking on the logo. I will be giving the GOLD membership!
This time I will allow the extra chances with a tweet and/or FB mention! But you have to come back to my blog and say I tweeted or mentioned on FB. I want a separate comment for each thing because it makes it easier to choose the winner. So.....
1. Leave a comment about what your favorite Christmas tradition is.
2. Leave another comment saying I tweeted the giveaway! Tweet something like this "Go see this amazing D23 giveaway by @pampensiero"
3. Leave another comment saying I posted your giveaway on FaceBook! And be sure to post it on Face Book!
To get the extra chances, you must do it that way because it makes it much easier for me to put the numbers into random.org. Thank you everyone good luck and Merry Christmas!
Oh, I almost forgot....I will choose a winner on Wednesday December 14 at 8:00AM. Be sure to comment!
