Wow! I'm first! I don't usually get anywhere first!
Sounds like great time for a giveaway!
My favorite thing about the biggest holiday--that's tough. I love the choir in Church on Christmas Eve. I love watching the grandkids open their gifts. I love spending the day with my parents. I love all the simple decorations ( I'm not fond of the commercial crap there is out there these days ) And I do love snow!
I would love to be entered, my friend!
Best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful holiday season! We have much to be thankful for!

Sandy said...

It is the Christmas Tree and Music. I love to sit at night with all the lights off except for the glowing tree and play my favorite Christmas music. And of course the most important favorite thing is to share the Holidays with family. We don't get to be with all our children and grandchildren because they all live in separate states--but that is my dream for the perfect Holiday--to all be together...

Orange Sink said...

Hi Amy,
Love the surprise give-aways! Thanks for your generosity!
I love the smell of fresh pine, the sound of sleigh bells and I adore the music of the season.

-My favourite thing about Christmas, what really gives me a warm, sentimental feeling, is old fashioned Christmas carols. I have already started to play them in my studio and in my car. They bring back cherished memories of my family that has past and of our family when our son was little. This year we have a new grandbaby and I will play them and sing them to her.

Thanks,
Sue

My favorite part of the holiday is Christmas Eve at my house, with my family all here (extended family, too!), eating, playing games and caroling. If we would have a little snowfall, that would be perfect, too!

Thanks for hosting!!

I just love surprises . . . especially if there's little wax goodies involved ~ count me in :)

Lots of things to enjoy about the holidays of course, but one of the things that gives me that fuzzy feeling is watching the vintage Christmas specials with my grandkids (Rudolph is my fav). It takes me right back to when my daughters were little and the house was full of excitement.

Raspberry Lane Primitives said...

Hi Amy, thanks for the surprise giveaway! :)

Jody said...

I would love to be entered into your giveaway!

I will post to my blog as well...

I LOVE snow, snowmen and warm cozy fires

Angela said...

Amy, Such a sweet giveaway. My favorite thing about Christmas is the fact that we celebrate the birth of Jesus and because of his birth and later his dying for our sin, we will be united again one day with our loved ones. Just laying Mother to rest today, and my Daddy a few years back,,, that promise is more precious than ever.
A warm fuzzy feeling comes when I watch holiday activities thru the eyes of my precious granddaughter. Spending time with my family, the smells of the holidays, shopping, the hustle and bustle of the crowds, and listening to Christmas carols snuggled with Mr, P. by the light of the tree and fireplace.
Angela

Hi Amy,
Leave it to you to come up with a terrific kick-off to the holiday season! I would LOVE to be entered in your giveaway and will post over on my blog as soon as I hit publish for this comment. :)
My favorite part of Christmas... ooh so much to choose from. I love seeing the joyfulness and anticipation from the kids at school. (Even though it means that it's REALLY hard to pay attention :)
I love the lights - especially a tree full of little white ones. I love Christmas music and movies, too. (I am actually guilty of watching some of those movies all year round.)
Thanks for the fun - now I have to read everyone else's favorites. This is a great way to get in the holiday mood!

Pattie @ On Hollyhock Farm said...

What I love at Xmas is walking on a snowy night looking at all the lighted houses.

Dee said...

I would love to receive a surprise gift in the mail...Please count me too! What I love about xmas...well..there's plenty to be thankful for. But, what I enjoy most of all is making cookies with my family. Even though cut-out are the most work..we have done them every year with our children and now grown college and married children..There's something about the crazyness of making a mess in the kitchen and having fun, and it's just us again! I will post on my blog. Best Wishes!

Lynn said...

oh Amy,
I would love to be entered into your giveaway! I would be honored to have your handmade items to decorate my home with. My favorite Christmas memories are those of my Mother and my children on Christmas Eve. My Mother has spent the night with us every Christmas Eve except one or two since I had children. It is awesome to have all of my family under the same roof on Christmas morning. The kids wake us up early in the morning and we all gather in the den area. The kids sort the gifts and start making gift piles for each person. My hubby sets the video camera up so that it captures all the activities of the morning. We each take turns opening presents. One of the children goes first, then it the other's turn, then my Mom, then my Hubby, and then me. After all the gifts are open we clean up all the wrapping paper and boxes. The gifts are carried to the bedrooms. The kids start playing with a special gift or two. Mom and I are in the kitchen starting breakfast, Bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits, and gravy. We all eat till we bust, then clean up the kitchen, some take a nap, some play, some watch tv, for me,it is time to start cooking for the late lunch or early supper.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season filled with joy, peace, love, and all the happiness you deserve! Thanks so much for being such a great online friend!!!
Hugs,
Lynn

It's hard to list just one favorite thing about Christmas, I love everything about it, from decorating to baking, visiting family and friends, gift giving, taking a drive to see the holiday display of lights, and being with my grandsons on Christmas Day. Love them all, but attending Christmas Eve church services still remains high on my list, that gives me the warm and fuzzy of the season.

Hillcresthome Prims said...

Hi Amy, I am a follower.

I LOVE Christmas, it is my favorite time of year.

I love to cook and bake while I have Christmas music going on in my kitchen.

Every year we all go and see the Christmas lights at La Sallet, which I did with my folks when I was a little girl every year and I passed the tradition on to our sons. This year our oldest son will be bringing his girlfriend, this will be the first, well he is 20 yrs old.
Then after walking around for about 2 hours to see everything,then we go out for dinner and sing Christmas songs on the way and then Mr. Hillcrest takes the back roads home for us to see everyone's home's decorated for christmas.

I love to have our fire going and wear my fluffy pink robe and fluffy pink slippers!( my favortie color) I know it is not a PRIM color, but I can wear it, and LOVE it, LOL!
I have always said for years ""Think Pink""!

For baking I ALWAYS bake my Grandmother's cookies that she baked every year, she is gone , but is in our hearts and I know she is proud I bake these.
She was a Mother to me!

Thank you for hosting a fabulous givieaway and asking us to share some memories! I really enjoyed this!

Mearry Christmas,
Tricia

Hi Amy! Ooh, I love surprises...please count me in!

I'm a new follower, have posted your giveaway on my blog's sidebar, and have added you to the blog list on my sidebar.

One of the many things I love about Christmas is stealing a few quiet moments in the evening to dim all the lights and just sit and enjoy the Christmas tree with all its finery and glitter. I find it so calming to sit and look at each ornament and bring up the memory that goes with it.

Hugs,
Pam

Hello Amy
Please sign me up, I follow, and I will link up on my sidebar.

My favorite thing about Christmas is that my hubby always takes me to visit my mother, she will be 90 in January and I only get to see her about three times a year, Christmas is special to still be able to visit with her, we even drove up in an ice storm to visit her last year.

Brenda

Kathy H said...

I love surprises. I have so much to be joyful about at Christmastime. Our family gets together, our decorations that have been passed down from generations ago. ANd red is my favorite color and there is red everywhere! And don't forget the music.

Bird said...

Hi, I just became a follower and would love to be entered in your super wonderful prim giveaway. I've been here before many moons ago... well, months ago. Nice to visit again.

What makes me joyful and feel good at Christmas time? My son and my husband and our four cats all working together (the word working used loosely here) to put up the tree and that first wonderful snowfall of the season. Oh my goodness, there are so many other things but I would have a short story here if I kept going.

Thank you for having such a fun and wonderful giveaway.

Dee said...

I love giveaways. But even more I love that my girls are following all the family traditions of Christmas, like making all of Mema's recipes for cookies. And going all out decorating. The youngest daughter has taken up part of the tasks of decorating by doing the yard. Her and her new boyfriend did it just like I did last year. And I didn't think she paid any attention. I love the joy and the togetherness of family and friends at the holidays.

lenna said...

Hi ~ My favorite thing about the Holidays would have to be snow, however I live in Waco, Tx. for almost 20 years and I have not seen snow yet. I love to build snowmen and whenever it snows I get out there and build one. I even went to upstate N. Y. and built one there.
Your blog is lovely and I would love to win your giveaway. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
God Bless ~

Hi Amy,Whooo I hope I've made it and still have time to sign up for your wonderful surprise giveaway! I have not been around to much, such a busy time of year for me, as with all. I have a few fav's for Christmas, but I will narrow it down to one, so as not to go on and on. Every year on Christmas Eve I take huge trays of homemade cookies that I have worked on the wk. before, to a home for young girls that have suffered abuse and rape, many without families. It is my way of giving back, and to see the smiles on these young girls faces is priceless, when I walk in with there cookies! I have been doing this for quite a few years now and they always look forward to there cookies for there Christmas Eve party. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, to think that my baking with a lil' bit of "LOVE" could bring such smiles and joy to so many!! Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season! Big Hugs, Mary
