What? You didn't want to know that?
Well, while you are busy panicking about all that needs to be accomplished in the next 6 weeks, I'm going to be celebrating some of the little things that make this my most favorite time of year.
First, I pulled out my Christmas mugs this week. Festive, aren't they?
And then, just today, I started wearing Christmas socks. Yes, it's true. Thanks to my mom, I am the proud owner of 26 pairs of Christmas socks. I'll have to extend my wearing of these socks until after New Year's just so I can wear each pair more than once!
And let's not forget the "sounds of the season"--most of my CD cases are packed away in storage somewhere, but here are the ones I could scrounge up for you:
And last, but not least, this is the perfect time of year for another giveaway! Yes, that's right. I'm giving away TWO festive Christmas mugs. These ones, to be exact:
Oh, don't worry. I'm not giving away my Christmas mugs. These are duplicates of ones I already have and I want to share the fun with you. As with 99% of my mugs, I found them at the Goodwill, but they are original Starbucks mugs and both are in excellent condition.
And in case you can't already tell how awesome they are, consider what's inside them:
And underneath them:
And on their saucers:
And if you're into stats, these cups are 3 inches tall, 4-1/4 inches wide at the rim, and hold 12 ounces.
Now, don't you just want one?
To enter the drawing, all you have to do is a leave a comment--either here or on Facebook--and tell me something you enjoy about the holiday season. It could be one of the things I mentioned above or something completely different. Eggnog lattes? Pumpkin pie? Five-course meals with 37 extended family members? Decorating the tree? Pulling your cat out of the Christmas tree before he tips it over? The choices are endless, in my opinion. But then again, I do think this is the most wonderful time of the year!
Leave your comment before midnight Pacific time on Thursday, November 18, 2010. I will draw 2 winners, one for each cup.
Now go enjoy the next 43 days--and start listening to Christmas music already!
