Alaskan Bargain Hunter Holiday Giveaway Bash: 10.00 Amazon.com Gift Certificate!
Amazon.com is honestly my favorite place to buy gluten free and garlic free groceries as the prices on Amazon are SO much cheaper than buying them at the store. And this year I've done double duty by doing pretty much 100% of my last minute Christmas shopping on Amazon.com too. I've been a customer of Amazon.com since a couple of years after it was founded (yup that long) and I can't say enough good about it :). It seriously is one of the *counts on fingers* three different sites I shop at regularly and the other two are specialty shop sites.
And now that I've extolled the virtues of Amazon.com, who here wants a 10.00 credit that you can add to your Amazon.com account to use however you please? WEEEELLLLLL, here's your chance to win it!
I'm pulling this giveaway out of my own pocket. For your chance to win a 10.00 Amazon.com E-Certificate leave a comment after this post, after the Facebook post FOR this giveaway (since I know Blogger can be a bugger) or e-mail me (if neither of the above options is for you) and just share a favorite holiday memory.
If you are reading this over RSS or other reader please click on the link for the original post to join the contest or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I don't check the Hotmail account more than once a month associated with the login for Blogger...sorry!).
My favorite holiday memories mainly revolve around my childhood before my parents got divorced. Christmas was the time of year with reindeer tracking on Christmas Eve (we followed the Swedish tradition to open gifts on Christmas Eve and it was my mom's way of getting us out of the house), listening to Christmas records while gazing at the brightly lit Christmas tree, going around looking at Christmas lights and Christmas Eve children's mass at our local church where every year they gave away birthday cakes wishing Jesus a happy birthday. And every year my dad would kid that if we won the raffle for one of the cakes (the raffles were free of course) that he was going to remove the "Jesus" from the cake, put my name on and save it for my birthday (I was born around Christmas obviously). It never failed to make me laugh.
Since I'm without my dad this year, these memories, to me, are all the more precious. I look forward to building many great memories with my children so that they can tell stories like mine to their children someday as the years go on.
Since this is the last big "wow" giveaway for the Holiday Giveaway Bash (unless some great inspiration hits me), I just want to wish you all a Happy Holiday Season (whatever your holiday) and that good things happen to make the end of your year a little bit brighter this holiday season.
This giveaway will run from today, December 5th, 2011 till December 12th, 2011. At that point I'll pick a winner via Random.org. This giveaway is going to be over e-mail (so you can get your gift certificate quick and easy) so please leave your e-mail so I have a way to get in contact with you if you win (and transmit your prize of course :).
This giveaway is open to all legal residents of the U.S. so go for it people! And good luck!
