My friend and neighbor, Audrey, makes these divine smelling candles. Really divine. I wish you could smell their divinity over the internet, but since you can't, you'll just have to trust me on this. You can read about them on her website, Shoal Creek Candles or her blog.

And guess what? She is giving a candle away. To you! Aren't you excited?

All you have to do is enter the drawing here on my blog, and you will be entered to win a Cinnapine candle, which smells like fresh pine and ground cinnamon. Just perfect for the holidays.Now, since it's already December 10, and I want you to have you candle at least a few days before Christmas, I'm only going to leave this giveaway open until Sunday night and I will announce the winner on Monday.

You may receive up to 3 entries in the drawing:

1. Leave a comment on this post, and tell me about your favorite Christmas tradition.

2. Post on your own blog, linking to this giveaway.

  11. I had remebered other traditions-that I wished I would have posted on my blog about traditions...Christmas morning we always had red and green balloons everywhere. Something I do with my kids.
    We always go to eat at the Spaghetti Factory with the Burly mans family.

  14. My favorite Christmas tradition is kind of silly. My family does the normal Christmas Eve thing with dinner and the reading of the Christmas story of the Bible, but our dinner is a little different than most. We make homemade egg rolls and have them for dinner. My husband thinks this a strange tradition that doesn't necessarily need to be carried on, but it brings back fond memories for me so I have continued it on in my own family. Now my kids can get strange looks when they say we have egg rolls for Christmas Eve dinner too.

  18. my favorite Christmas Tradition is taking the kids shopping for Toys for Tots. One year, a while ago, we-as a Marine Corps Family-were blessed by Toys for Tots. Now we try to pay it forward.

  19. My favorite holiday tradition is searching for Santa. When my cousins and I were little, we would go upstairs every year to search for Santa out the back windows. Of course, we always missed him because when we were up there, he showed up downstairs. We would hear him bellow HO HO HO and rush downstairs just to miss him and find all the presents. Really though, I think I didn't catch on til I was like 13. It was that special. Thanks for this giveaway!

  22. As a kid, we would go over to my mom's best friends home, or they would come to ours. This family had several children the same ages as we were, so it was a really fun time. We would do the Nativity story, and then have a treat and wish each other Merry Christmas!
    It was something we all really looked forward to!
    :D

  23. My very favorite christmas tradition is a christmas tree. Not just the buying or the decorating but I love having this beautifully decorated and lit tree in my home all month. As cheesy as it is I do "Cry the day I take the tree down" on the inside at least.

  25. HI--My favorite Christmas tradition--aside from the chocolate, would probably be looking at Christmas lights--I love that! My parents always took us and now I love to take my own children. Light--isn't that what Christ is? :)

  26. My favorite Christmas tradition is acting out the Nativity story with little children in bathrobes and paper sheep ears, etc. Can't get better than that!

  27. Oh, that's a tough choice, which one do I choose?? Well, I really miss this one, so I will use it. Every year my family would go up this certain canyon and go tree hunting. I loved it because it was usually my first chance to play in some serious snow for the year. We would find the most perfect tree and cut it down. Once we got back to the car we would have hot cocoa and donuts. I loved the smell of the fresh pine in the house - oh, how wonderful that was! My hubby grew up with artificial trees...so needless to say, we have a fakey - and probably always will.

  28. My favorite would have to be on Christmas Eve. Since I was a little girl we would open our Christmas Jammies and then we would put them on and ride around town looking at lights!

  29. I always look forward to the light-hearted argument about who gets to put the angel at the top of the tree. We take turns every year anyway, but it's tradition to 'discuss' it a little bit.

  30. From the time I can remember, my father always MADE my mother a doll for Christmas. The materials used ranged from pop cans, to wood, to palm fronds, to flower pots. You name it, my dad could come up with a pretty cool doll. Well, my sweet husband, realizing how much I LOVED that tradition started doing the same for me. It's my favorite gift each year.

  31. We always read the Christmas Story from the scriptures on Christmas Eve and use the pieces from the Nativity set. It's simple, but easy to do and places the focus where it should be.

  32. I also posted a link to the site and to this giveaway.

  33. I'm here from Kristy's blog. My favorite Christmas Tradition when we were little was every Christmas Eve, my parents would take all of us kids to drive around and look at Christmas lights, then we'd go to Burger King for dinner. I know, real fancy, huh? But I always remember having an awesome time doing it every year. We did it a few times with our own kids, but I feel so guilty making people cook us hamburgers on Christmas Eve, so we just look at lights now :)
