my hubby and I buy all sorts of different cocoas and try to enjoy them every night near the fireplace. :)

FirstLady Jen said...

First off, let me say that Glitz is the most generous company! Thank you for the wonderful give-away!

My favorite holiday tradition is making my mom a birthday cake. Her birthday is Christmas Eve, and I remember her saying that growing up she never got a birthday cake, they just combined her day with Christmas. Once I was grown, I decided she would never go without a birthday cake again so every year I make her favorite for her - rum cake - and make sure she gets a real birthday.

great giveaway!

my favorite holiday tradition is betting on what time santa will come around on the fire truck on christmas eve, we have done this since we were little and we still get a kick out of hearing those sirens!

Cathy said...

Our favorite holiday tradition is going over to Grandma and Grandpa's house the weekend after Thanksgiving and helping to decorate their tree. We go early in the morning and Grandma cooks breakfast while the kids start decorating. After breakfast, I cook up some cookies (Grandma is great, she has the cookie dough all made up in advance for me!) while they finish the decorating, then we snack on some cookies and take a few home with us.

Oh and that's too cool about FirstLady Jen's mom. My birthday is Christmas Eve too! :) Thanks for a great contest and I love your designs!

Diana said...

ONE of my favorite traditions is a stocking stuffer that SANTA brings. Cheddar Cheese goldfish, and peanut m&m's. Sounds weird but TOTALLY yummy!:)

AHadley said...

Oh wow, that's a supremely awesome stocking there!

My fav tradition is one that we've started with our own kids. Each year after Thanksgiving, we take them to Hobby Lobby to pick out an ornament. They take it so seriously that it takes about an HOUR for them to choose! And then it's fun to see the ornaments they've chosen in years past when we decorate the tree :)

Ms. Jackie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is getting a new package of underware. Each year my Mom buys all of us a new package of undies. This is her way of having us start out the new year with something new. Each Christmas morning we all open our new "undies" at the same time. My husband was so happy the first year we were married, and he became a member of the "new undies gang."

Deanna said...

My favorite holiday tradition is going over to my mom's friend's house for thanksgiving. She always has tons of people over and she makes amazing food! It is so much fun!

Drika said...

WOW, what an awesome gift!!!

The best thing about holiday is to enjoy the family.

HeatherM said...

I love this stocking! My favorite tradition is waiting for Glitz to post their holiday giveaways!
Pick me, pick me, pick me!

Really though I love how everyone is happy during this time of year!
Thanks again Glitz Girls for great giveaways!

Pinky said...

Well my favorite holiday tradition is...definitely taking my 3 boys out to chop down the Christmas Tree.
We are sort of National Lampoon style! LOL
The boys fight over who carries the saw and cardboard and they all drag the tree back showing MOM how strong they are! Its like a mini movie! Then they all hoist it in to the minivan and you see branches sticking halfway out the windows and feet coming through the back seat. But I love every minute of it!
~Pinky~

Buffyverse Fan said...

One of my parents is Christian and the other is Jewish so I have a lot of Holiday traditions that I love. I have always loved eating a big breakfast with my family on Christmas morning. I also love when my entire extended family gets together for Chanukah. We have a white elephant gift exchange and eat tons of latkes.

I just got married in May so I am looking forward to creating some new traditions with my new husband.

Leah said...

My favorite holiday tradition is a game of dirty Christmas that we play with my extended family(this is like a gift swap, but stealing gifts from each other is involved). We have the same prank gift that comes back every year that has been in the family over 30 years!

Ashley said...

Getting out all the Christmas decorations together & setting them all up together. Decorating the tree together. Doing stuff *together.*

scrappinmomto2girls said...

My fave tradition is putting up the tree with my girls ages 6 and 4,they always get to the put the first ornament on and it is just so precious : )

That giveaway is just awesome!!!! Thanks for doing it!!!

Rebecca said...

My favorite holiday tradition is baking. I dont do a lot of baking during the year, but for christmas I make homemade fudge, sugar cookies, shortbread. We keep a bunch for the house and give away containers to everyone we know.

Lauri {Scrap Attack} said...

How fun! My favorite holiday tradition is our annual game of holiday bingo. The whole family is there and it's a great chance to be together and laugh and have fun!

Melinda said...

Our favorite tradition is going out the day after Thanksgiving to cut down our Christmas tree.

Beth B. said...

We have so many traditions in our family. It's hard to pick just one. I guess the biggest one is - we hit the road. We make this huge road trip from SC to IA to IL to OH to PA just so we can spend some Christmas time with all of our exteded family. We have 3 gathering. That's Christmas 3 times for my kids, plus what we do at home before we go. We've always asked Santa to come a little early - you know that helps him out too.

Katherine said...

One of my favorite holiday traditions is getting together with family before Christmas. We have a family get together and we all bring yummy food. We get to catch with everyone. It's a fun filled day. :)Then of course being with my family on Christmas day.

Brenda said...

My family spends Thanksgiving together eating and playing games. We also pour over the ads for the next day and make our stradegies for the next days shopping!!!

Sharmin said...

I LOVE Glitz!

Thanksgiving and Christmas are about the only times our whole extended family can get together. My mom and her 3 brothers, and 1 sister are all very musically inclined (as well a few cousins), and each family gathering ends up around the piano. It was my grandmother's favorite part of the evening and we still sing her favorite songs (gospel hymns and Christmas carols) even though we lost her in 1993. We are now up to almost 60 people, but it's wonderful to have that many family members together at once. It's loud and chaotic, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Chris said...

My husband and I don't get to celebrate Christmas together most years because of his work, however we make a point to always pull out the tree and decorate it together. So, that has become my favorite tradition with him. And before that, it was my favorite tradition with my mother -- trimming the tree.

Jerusha said...

Wow wow wow! Such amazing goodies!

Why is it that Christmas traditions often revolve around food? Our favourite traditions do, anyway! Every year my mother made a sweedish tearing (pastry) for breakfast and I have continued the tradition. My family loves it just as much as I did!

Kimmie0270 said...

Baking Christmas cookies... when I was little I used to bake them with my grandfather - then when he passed away I took them over on my own. This year my oldest son (2) has told me he's going to "help"

kim's kreations said...

I know that this makes me sound like a dork but I just love putting the Xmas music on while we put up the tree and decorate the house. The whole family helps so it can be a lot of fun. My sisters and Mom did this all of the years that we were growing up.

brigid16 said...

My favorite Christmas tradition when I was a kid is that we would go to a christmas eve mass and then get McDonalds and ride around in the car and look at lights while we eat!
Simple but we always had fun!

Donna said...

I would have to say my absolute favorite tradition is spiced chai lattes with lots of marshmallows while sitting by our outdoor firepit and listening to Christmas music. This was a tradition my husband and i started about 3 years ago. Happy Holidays & thanks for this very generous giveaway! : )

Jenny said...

My favorite holiday tradition has been going to pick up our tree & then our family picks out ANY ornament they want. They always surprise me with what they pick (usually my husband too!)

Harley Dee said...

Now that is my kind of stocking!! :D My favorite holiday tradition is always the tree. We have so much fun setting it up and decorating it.. I look forward to it every year :)

Karen said...

My favorite holiday tradition is putting the bird and pickle ornaments on the tree. The bird is a tradition passed on by my great grandma and the pickle was passed on by my mom.

KKurtz said...

Our family's favorite tradition is while driving to the Grandparents on Christmas Eve going through the neighborhood viewing all the Christmas lights while singing Christmas Carols.

Sue said...

My favourite holiday tradition is everyone going over to my parents' for dinner and each bringing our specialty dishes. Yums!

createdmonster said...

I'd have to say getting out and putting up the decorations, tree, and lights the day after Thanksgiving. I know it doesn't seem like much of a tradition, but we are so far from family and hubsters misses so many Christmas's...it's just about all we have.

Kristie said...

My favourite holiday tradition is the present wrapping. I love wrapping presents and making them look all beautiful under the tree. Ever since I was about 12 my mum has let me do the wrapping and now when I get home she always has this enormous stack of presents waiting for me to wrap. It takes a whole day and I sit on the floor with paper and ribbon and bows and tags, listening to music and chatting with my mum....it's a fun way to spend a day :)

Rachel said...

My favorite holiday tradition is logging onto the Santa Norad site and watching Santa visit the time zones on the way over. Even though I don't have kids, I love the effort that goes into that site for kids of all ages everywhere around the world.

Dawn said...

I love to go to the city tree lighting with my husband and children then have cocoa and cider after. a perfect start to the season

mustangkayla said...

How yummy and amazing is that stocking of goodies! I just had to wipe drool off of my keyboard. My favorite tradition is baking a bunch of goodies (cookies, fudge, peanut butter balls, etc) with my mom to give away to family and friends.

Daniela/Neliz said...

My favorite holiday tradition is when all in our family goes to select a tree. Oh, i love it sooo much!

Thats tocking is the best i ever seen, i can only say wow!

ms.cheryl said...

Love me some Glitz...
this year we're starting a new tradition. i don't get to spend as much time with my kids since they moved out so this year i said "let's do the 4 weeks of christmas instead of just one day". they jumped all over that. we will spend time together one day a week in december during which there will be a gift exchange.each day has a theme.the first is a Casting Crowns concert. then we will have game night... monopoly of course,after all the gift i want is time. third is movie night and last is traditional. we'll see how it goes.i know i will like it and what kid can resist opening a gift early?
thanks for the great giveaway, ms.cheryl

Joli said...

I love buying matching PJs for my kids. They get a big kick out of it and I get some great photos!

Charisma3103 said...

Every Christmas Eve we go to my Inlaw's house they are German so we have a buffet style dinner and then we open presents.

Gina said...

One of my favourite hoiday things to do is baking and decorating christmas cookies with my girls :D

rachel whetzel said...

LOVE the feather tree behind it all!! Adds a cute touch!!

Yvonne said...

My favorite tradition is decorating the tree and then that night enjoying the tree with all the lights off, drinking hot cocoa and listening to christmas music.

Anonymous said...

Each year we get a present on Thanksgiving, or on that weekend. This year I made fuzzy blankets with Santa, raindeer and baby deer and redbirds on them. The little ones get to use their present (it always has a Christmas theme) while anticipating Christmas each year. They looked so cute wrapped up in their blankets in the sunshine this year! okiegrandma/sb.com

schnauzermom said...

My favorite is long-term, but silly...the day after Thanksgiving, my daughter and I have pumpkin pie for breakfast. Hey, pumpkin, has to be healthy in there somewhere, right? :)

Amanda Ann said...

Mine is going through all of the goodies in our stockings :)

JuliesAddiction said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making stepping stones with the grand kids hand prints!!!

joscelyne cutchens said...

my favorite Christmas tradition is making cookies and gingerbread house. and singing along with the Christmas music!

Sara said...

Hmm...I think my favorite tradition is our advent calendar. My parents got it from a friend when I was little. It's made from wood and has all the little pieces of the nativity (including animals/birds) on wooden pegs that fit into a creche-shaped board. LOVE it!

Kathy said...

My fav holiday tradition started when the children's first Christmas and I got each one holiday pj's. As they got older that was the one present they each had to open on Christmas Eve. They grew to know what it was but wouldn't miss getting them. They are now 26, 21 and 19 and I still get them some kind of Christmas PJ's but it is harder as they get older. I hope that they pass it on to their children someday.

Tanis said...

My favourite Christmas tradition is setting up the tree with our kids, playing our Christmas CDs....I've done that since I was a kid, and I still love it!
Thanks for sharing :)

Trace Geworsky said...

I have so many traditions, and I truly love them all because I am a traditions kind of girl, but my favourite is every year the last weekend of November we drive an hour and a half to a tree farm where we cut down a tree, then have hot chocolate, peanuts and cookies, and go for a sleigh ride.

MANDY said...

Our Family tradition...We have so many...new and old! One of my Favs is the Greedy Santa game. We must do this 3-5 times each year. With his Fam, my Fam, Co-workers, Friends. It is Fun and brings everyone together!

Scrappy Doo 2 u said...

Wow, what a wonderful gift!

My favorite holiday tradition is one that I have been involved with since I was a little girl. As far back as I can remember, my dad's side of the family has reserved a hall and we all get together. Everyone, no matter where they live. We all converge on Nashville and celebrate family, life, the kids, togetherness and the reason for the season. I'm now 37 years old and I am so thankful that my kids are now experiencing this wonderful tradition.

Thanks again for such a wonderful opportunity.

awendybird said...

A favorite family holiday tradition is pepperoni rolls. We make them by hand and they take so much work that we usually reserve them for holidays.

evafromca said...

WOW...thanks for the opportunity and my favorite holiday tradition is going to church christmas eve and having my Mom's pastries.

Jeanette said...

Wow, that is an amazing stocking, you guys are great!
My favorite Christmas tradition is getting the group photo that I can't leave without every year. It's great to see how much or how little we all change in a year's time, especially the kids.

Lindsay Spencer said...

My favorite tradition is our Christmas Eve. We talk about the Christmas story with our kids, and talk about what it means to each of us. Then we open a present, which is ALWAYS soft comfy matching pajamas. I make sure to have them washed and smelling good for everyone. Then the kids give me a present, which is always a book they've picked out with DH. We read the book by the Christmas tree and sit up and talk for a while, then put the kids to bed. It makes me feel happy inside just thinking about.

Thanks for a great chance to win some FABULOUS GLITZ!

Shirley said...

First of all, awesome prize package! One of my favorite traditions is one I enjoy all by myself. After the tree is decorated and everyone has gone to bed I turn out all the lights except the Christmas tree and reflect on the true meaning of the season.

CherrieScraps said...

One of my favorite Holiday traditions took place today - Black Friday shopping!! Every year my daughter and I get up in the still of the night and rush down to Walmart to scoop up on the Black Friday sales. I know it sounds whacky - but this signals the start of the Holidays for me - gets me in Christmas mode. Plus it is a special time with my daughter.

3QTGUYS said...

One of my favorite holiday traditions is getting new pj's on Christmas eve! We did it when we were little, and now we do it at our house!

My boys LOVE getting the new pj's just before heading to bed to wait for Santa!

Papertrails by a paper lover said...

This is a great idea to get people's perspectives on what's an important tradition for them especially during these times of economy woes. Thanks for offering the idea!
Favorite tradition is getting daughter's advent calendar ready for her. I do something different every time but basic concept. Sometimes it's a note with candy, a small toy, a request to give a hug, etc. Now that she's too old to believe in Santa this is her surprise so like to make it something special.

Michelle Lanning said...

Definitely baking with my dd! Now that she is old enough it is so fun to make cookies together!

Melanie said...

Growing up in Hawaii, our x-mas trees were always expensive and cut weeks before it got to the islands for everyone to purchase.
SO, now as a "mainlander", my favorite holiday tradition is to go to the tree farm to pick out and cut our own Christmas tree!
Sure it's a cold, dirty, and usually wet (here in Oregon) job, but it is totally worth it!
Aloha & Mele Kalikimaka!
Happy Holidays Glitz! :)

Ashley said...

My favorite is always baking and decorating cookies for Santa. We'd all get together and spend all evening baking, eating, and laughing.

melita said...

my fave holiday tradition is wrapping presents in front of the tv each night after the kids fall asleep. i am waiting for them to fall asleep now so that i can get started!

daiseyfreak said...

my favorite is driving around looking at christmas lights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jennifer (gojenlaw) said...

We spend the holidays at home with family. The kids open gifts and the grown up watch the little faces make some of the funnies expressions. A course mom has her camera and catch them expressions to later use them in layouts. Growing up we used to spend the holiday with my grandparents and I can remember thinking that the red lights on towers was the reindeers and santa as we came home from Church. My grandmother's birthday was on Christmas eve, It made the holidays extra special. Thanks for the chance to win such great goodies.

Swede said...

I live in Kansas City, the city of fountains and the Country Club Plaza. Every Thanksgiving eve the 80 miles of Christmas lights are turned on. They have entertainment and celebrities starting at 4 p.m. and lights being turned on at 7 p.m. Beautiful. This is a tradition that I've followed all my life and I'm 67yr. old. Thanks for sharing.

Robin (Tqmnurse) said...

Too funny that my mom is the post immediately before me! LOL...
Besides the tradition of going to see the Plaza lights...I love that mom and I would make all of the candy and cookies. I shared that tradition with my daughter and now miss it since she is grown and moved away.
This year I'll be making cookies for a cookie swap...not quite the same without the company of mom or my daughter...but the spirit will be there.
Robin

sterling said...

Every year our family open 1 gift on Christmas eve night - it is always a new set of Pj's - We love wearing new pj's on Christmas morning.

Rosanne said...

What a great giveaway!

Its hard to pick one tradition but I guess one of our favourites is making Coconut peaks, they are sooo yummy!

Katie @ Paper Makeup said...

what a fantastic prize! I have a few new fav traditions i'm starting with my kiddos. i'm making a birthday cake every christmas eve so that everyone can have a piece first thing in the morning. Afterall, it's His birthday we're celebrating.

Deborah Howell said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making either a Gingerbread house or Gingerbread men with my sweet girls. They get so exiceted and love to decorate them. We make so many that I like to give some away but they always want to keep them all just to look at them.

Tanya said...

Thanks Glitz for this giveaway!
One of my favorite tradition is waiting to december 25th for our gifts. When we were kids, we'd have to wait for hours (ok, in kids heads, sounded like hours lol) before we could unwrap our gifts. We couldn't touch them before my parents would be up and had breakfast. But we had the right to have our stockings lol I loved the wait!

Michele Beck said...

for me , it's decorate the christmas tree !

just lisa said...

Christmas Eve at my mom and dad's with the whole family - love whe we are all together!!

Vanessa said...

my fav tradition is eating cookies and drinking dr. pepper at my grandmothers house while the men watch James Bond movies

Breann said...

my fave tradition growing up was decorating the tree at night on christmas eve and always getting to put the angel on. then we would head to my dad's family christmas and open presents. when we got home we would each get one present to open so santa had room to leave more the next morning!

Kathy said...

This tradition is from my childhood and my sister and I would decorate the tree. Our favourite ornaments were these 3 large shiny balls and we used to fight over who got to put them on the tree. They were so pretty...

luvzenkm2 (Leea) said...

I come from a long line of procrastinators and every year we wait until the very last second to wrap gifts, so the mad dash of wrappping happens and every time (now I believe its done on purpose) a pair of scissors gets wrapped...its kinda of tradition to see who got them every year....While it is silly still a tradition ;-) Thanks for the chance

Tammy B said...

1st & foremost, the day after thanksgiving, we make a big deal out of taking down the fall wreath on the door and putting up our christmas one....that signals the christmas season for us!

LadyMissSusan said...

My fav. holiday tradition is my stocking. My sister and I stuffed each others stockings for years. It was my favorite thing to get and my favorite thing to shop for. My sister passed and now my cousin and I do this.

Reel Girl said...

Piling the dogs into the car, getting a thermos with hot cocoa and driving around town to look at Christmas lights.

We don't have kids, but all 3 of the dogs seem to enjoy this tradition, hanging their heads out the window and occasionally barking at the families towing their kids around in wagons to look at the lights!

Jamie said...

My family holiday tradition is new socks. Since I was a kid my parents would buy new socks for everyone for Christmas. I just LOVE new socks! I have continued that tradition with my own kids and they love it!

Thanks you, Glitz, for your generosity!

Happy Holiday's everyone!

Lynda said...

Wow those colours look AWESOME!!

What a great prize!!

Lynda said...

Ops sorry forgot to share our traditions with you.I have children getting excitted about puting our tree up.

Traditions we have is every year on christmas eve we have to put out a runway for for the reindeer to land on.This was our son Max's idea when he was 3.So cute he was very worried they might crash.So we have balloons and streamers out.

Stacied.in.ks said...

One of my favorite traditions is going and looking at Christmas lights around town. I love it when I am able to visit family in East Peoria IL around Thanksgiving and see there lighted Christmas parade and their Festival of Lights. Truely gorgeous but unfortunately I can't make it every year.

Catherine A. said...

Our favorite tradition occurs on Christmas Eve, when I pull out our 12x12 Christmas albums, and we scroll thru the past 12 years since hubby and I were married...now, 4 kids later.. it's amazing to see the evolution of our holiday! And, this is the first time the kids get to see the "completed" pages from last years' celebration! (I only work on these pages when no one is around, so NO PEEKING!)... I think it helps them to remember how blessed they are, and it's always fun to hear the memories that are triggered by the photos..

Errin said...

WOW such beautiful stuff!!!

my favorite holiday tradition is making a gingerbread house with the kids. love it!!!

have a great day!!

Jamie V said...

yummy!!!

It has to be baking...

Shannon Hager said...

In our family we always have a cake competition. We split into 2 teams and then have the neighbors be "official judges". It's always a blast!

TxScrapAddict said...

Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, we take down the tree....decorate it & light it!

scrappin_in_AK said...

gorgeous giveaway - how generous.
Every year for Christmas dh buys me a 1000+ piece puzzle. The following year on Dec 1st I get it out and the family spends the next month helping me put it together (even the cats like to play with it !!)

antenucci said...

I absolutely love Christmas Eve with our friends around, at our church and lighting candles as we sing Silent Night and then trying to get pictures of all the kids together - this is what announces Christmas to me!

Bella Blogger said...

We have a German Christmas eve with the entire extended family. Filled with a German meal, German songs, talents, and reading the story of Christ's birth. I look forward to this all year long.

Nik said...

I love my family's White Elephant gift exchange. You never know what you're going to get. It's always good for a laugh.

Karlyn said...

wow what a wonderful prize!!

we have so many holiday traditions it's hard to choose:

from cookie day with my girls, new ornaments on christmas eve, big family gathering the weekend before with the annual trivia contest, waking up at 6am with the kids, monkey balls on new year's day followed by our annual hike in the state park...it's too hard to choose. it's a wonderful time of year!

Daisymeh said...

I love Glitz!

My favorite Christmas tradition is when after Christmas Eve dinner and our gift exchange at my parents' house, my entire mom's family gathers in the family room and we watch George C. Scott in A Christmas Carol.

mary.e.morris said...

Oh My! Oh My! Oh My! I NEEd those goodies! My favorite holiday tradition is watching my sons (and now my granddaughters) dump out their Christmas stocking and laugh and compare the unusual trinkets/goodies that Santa picked up throught the preceding year! ~Mary

Melinda AKA medialady said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making my grandmother's recipe of homemade Bon-bons. This past year, my son helped and he loved it!!

Amy said...

Definitely sign me up! TY!

Family tradition?? Definitely decorating the tree as a family. Gotta have the Christmas music on and have some hot chocolate near by!

bramy97@hotmail.com

Katherine said...

My family and I open presents Christmas Eve. It has been a tradition even before I was born. It is my favorite thing we do because we open them one by one. It takes forever but I love seeing my family's reaction when they open their gifts. Thanks for sharing with us.

Lydia said...

My favorite holiday tradition is the day after Thanksgiving. My husband, myself, and our 3 kids put on some christmas music and decorate our tree, house, and outside of the house. Then we sit and talk about what our favorite thing we did for the year.

Thanks so much for the fabulous chance to win such FABULOUS giveaway!

scrap out loud said...

My husband and I are a new and young family. We have 3 small children. For the Thanksgiving Holiday we make Itailian meatloaf instead of turkey. And directly after thanksgiving we buy a BIG WHITE TREE and decorate it. Thanks for the giveaway opp. love your stuff.

Laurie said...

Just discovered Glitz and am loving your flair!
My favorite holiday tradition is that our family of four always has a picture taken of us as we lie under the tree with our feet sticking out. The feet have gotten bigger and the legs longer but the feeling we get when we all look at the pic is the same. We always know that under that tree we were laughing.

ArtGirl1 said...

We make an "apple kuchen" (apple bread/cake) that my grandmother used to make. It's SO yummy, but we only make it at Christmas, so it's really special and we remember my grandmother when we all sit to make it and eat it.

I love all your new stuff! It's fantastic!!

Tish

Heredia Family/Yvie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is logging online to Santa Norad site to watch Santa visit all over the world and see when he will land at our house. Another tradition we started last year, is baking chocolate chip cookies for santa and his reindeers and place them by the fireplace with a tall cold glass of milk, when my DD goes to bed DH eats them and we make a trail of crumbs from the fireplace to the tree and leave a bag of presents for DD......LOL! Gotta have fun while they are still small.

SuzanneRenee said...

My favorite tradition is picking out the Christmas tree. My fiance and I go to his parents farm and dig out the four wheeler. We drive around looking for a good tree (he knows all the good spots). Until finally we find one, cut it down and drag it back to the house. It's such a fun tradition to actually find and cut down your own tree from the wild (not a tree farm) and knowing it came from his parents land is super cool too!

Suzanne
SuzanneRenee@gmail.com

Kimberly (pierides) said...

My favourite tradition is going to pick out the christmas tree. Finding the best tree. Drinking hot chocolate and then coming back and setting it up in the living room. Watching the tree fall as it gets warm and then waking up the next morning to a house that smells of pine.

Casey N in ARK said...

Okay, so it hasn't been a long standing tradition, just over the last five or six years....but we all get together the eve before Christmas eve and call our relatives that live overseas. We usually conference and put it on speakerphone. Even though it's only for, like, 15 minutes....we are so happy to all be "together".

Tracy said...

My fave holiday tradition is ALL the baking. My grandmothers have done it for years with their church groups, and I would remember walking into their houses with all the wonderful baked goods filling the air! Now, I bake for my family and friends. I bake so much that I started making goodie baskets to give as gifts b/c everyone wants some of their own. It's more fun now that I live further south to make these delicious goodies that I learned to make in PA!!

BabeCaddy said...

My favorite tradition is decorating the tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, listening to Christmas music.... 2nd would have to be opening one gift on Christmas eve...

ScrapAddict21 said...

My favorite holiday tradition is opening one gift on Christmas Eve. When I was younger we also were allowed to open our stockings as soon as we got up. So of course we were up as soon as possible!

Heather Scraps said...

My favorite holiday tradition is curling up on the couch with my DH to watch classic holiday cartoons-Rudolph, Frosty and the new Shrek the Halls instant classic!!! Of course, we have to drink hot chocolate and eat shortbread cookies too!!
Thanks for the chance to win some great prizes!!!

Natalie said...

My tree is decorated with home made ornaments, and the kids and I try to come up with new ones to make every year. When they are old enough, I will divide them and they will have ornaments for thier own trees.

nic_d said...

What a great prize! Thanks for the chance to win. We have many traditions, but a favorite is the family snuggling up on the couch to watch "It's a Wonderful Life."

Laura Stewart said...

my favorite tradition is our family photo shoot at Christmas - we have a big family, and it's always a good laugh trying to get a group shot.

BishopsMommie said...

My favorite is getting in our pj's christmas eve under the glow of the tree and open 1 gift each.

Jenn said...

One of my favorite holiday traditions is putting together a small puzzle that kicks off my Christmas decorating. I've had it for years and doing it always gets me in the Christmas spirit.

...leaving my legacy said...

here are the fam favs for the holidays.

mom: baking up the traditional cookies we give as gift to our neighbors.

Peg said...

we take the kids to the movies every Christmas eve followed by a hot chocky and tour of the Christmas lights.....fun and tiring so they go straight to sleep when we get home (if not before!)

My favorite tradition is shopping for gifts. There is taking an all-day trip with my mom, aunts, and friends to an outlet mall. What a great girl day! Then there is shopping with my hubbie and laughing hysterically at what he picks out. Finally just trying to shop for my hubbie and hiding his gifts around the house.

Thanks for the fantastic give-away!

I LOVE your product and with all the Glitz I could make Beautiful Christmas pages. My favorite Holiday tradition is to participate in Return to Bethlehem at our Church. It is a live play where the audience walks through the city of Bethlehem and stops at each shop, until the end where they will see Mary Joseph and Baby Jesus. People are usually very moved by the time they reach the Holy Family. It has be a tradition at our church for the last 15 years. My son was baby Jesus 14 years ago when he was 4 weeks old. Merry Christmas!!

We celebrate our Christmas on the 24th - we start with a big dinner out at a fabulous seafood buffet place in town, then head to church for evening service and singing, then come home and open presents (in an organized/chaos kind of way as my kids get older). This year, we'll have 2 extras joining us - my soon to be new son in law and my 17 year old daughter's boyfriend of the past few years... it's so wonderful to see the family growning!

Emily B said...

Well, I don't celebrate the holidays, but I do enjoy the time off work!!

Mel Horn said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making Christmas cookies. My mother and I made them together every year until she passed away 4 years ago. Now I continue the tradition with my daughters.

Thanks for the opportunity to win those beautiful products!

Stacia said...

My favorite has to be baking cookies with my kids, making tons of cookies literally, remember my kitchen at Christmas Laura? I was the cookie exchange. We have also added making chocolate suckers with our kids each year, this is the gift they give to their friends, classmates, teachers, etc. They can give as many as they are willing to make! Okay anything in the kitchen is my favorite, yule logs, cakes, cupcakes, etc.

Carly said...

One of my favorite traditions is giving my boys new jammies on Christmas eve. When we get home from my mother in laws house I always give them one present to open and it is always new jammies. Even though they know what it will be they are so excited and put them on right away and pose in front of the tree for a picture.

What an awesome give-away. I love the name of the line (it's my nickname).

We love decorating a Gingerbread House with our Grand kiddos. It's so awesome to see them use their creative abilities and talents in using frosting, candy embellisments and bling. They create a Glitzy house and make it a home. The magic in their eyes is worth frosting all over the place. A job well done!

hydee said...

My favorite tradition would have to be,going the Sat. after Thanksgiving and picking out our Christmas tree. My husband makes fun of me because it always takes me at least 2 hours to find one , and I usually end up buying the first one I saw.

thoppes said...

my family gets together for a prime rib dinner on christmas day and all the family is together, no gifts which takes the pressure off and makes it fun just to be together and enjoy each other and good food, we take a lot of photos also{ needed for scrapbooking} this is family fun at its best

Candi Ladwig said...

I love decorating the tree!! Just digging into the boxes of stuff packed away for the last year... remembering where and when you got all of the ornaments. Of course, we watch Charlie Brown's Christmas and listen to Christmas music while we do it!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR TOMORROW.... that's when we are decorating the house this year!! :)

Porters said...

Our favorite holiday tradition is our Christmas Eve Party. We have family and friends over for a wonderful evening of eating and game playing. I look forward to this day all year!

Robin said...

Wow great giveway! My favorite holiday tradition is making cookies every year with all my nieces and nephews. We have a blast and enjoy giving them away every year.

Debby said...

We have several traditions.

Christmas Eve Service
Photo's around the Church Christmas tree
Christmas Breakfast instead of lunch
Opening up one present on Christmas Eve which is always Christmas PJs.

Nicole4OU said...

my favorite christmas tradition is the whole family loading up in the car and driving around town looking at the christmas lights and listening to christmas music way too loud! Then we stop in at the coffee shop to warm up with a hot cup of coffee and a cup of joe!!

kim said...

Going to church at midnight. It really helps invite the spirit.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Jenny said...

By far, our favorite holiday tradition is opening the wooden doors on our advent calendar, taking out a nativity scene magnet, and watching the scene come together day by day. It is a good reminder for all of us of the true meaning of Christmas.

Melody B. said...

Love it! My favorite Christmas tradition is:

*Buying an ornament for each family member that represents the year for that person. This year we are getting our girls "Disney Princess" ornaments.....it's ALWAYS a princess day at our house!

Keri said...

My favorite tradition would have to be Santa coming on Christmas Eve and giving all the grandkids a sack. Santa changes every year, but every year the kids figure it out!

Lisa j said...

My favorite part of the holidays is spending time with family. I love getting together with my whole family. Right now we can't do that since my family lives overseas, so my next favorite is decorating the tree.

Tina said...

Thank you Glitz for such a fun giveaway. I really like your products.

I have a couple favorite traditions. First, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas music is played whenever possible in the house and whenever we are driving around. Now, that the kids are a little older, we sing along to all the songs. It is a fun time together.

My second favorite is baking all sorts of cookies and other goodies with the kids and making plates of the different yummy treats and taking them to friends and neighbors!!!

Merry Christmas to all of you out there.

Tina

My favorite holiday tradition is picking out an ornament for each of our 5 kids. We pick them out according to their hobbies/sports/moods (teenagers) happen to be at the time. This year they are all in to woodsy/cowboy stuff so it's been a lot of fun picking these out. Then when they are grown (our oldest just turned 18 and is joining the military) they will get a box of ornaments to decorate their "first" tree.

Aussie Gael said...

Every Year - on the last Saturday in November, all our friends and their kids gather at our place to decorate our Christmas Tree. I make my special Christmas Punch, and make something sweet, others bring a plate of goodies to share. We play Christmas Carols and have a singalong - everyone puts at least one decoration on the tree. Then when all is ready, we gather around the tree - have a drink and quote Charles Dickens in the Christmas Toast - and with much ceremony and ado - The Angel is carefully placed on top, we turn out the lights and; then light the Christmas tree - to much oohs and aahs. A wonderful night that I look forward to every year and a great way to kick off the silly season

polly said...

My husband and I have a favorite holiday tradition although our daughter is getting a little old for this. He works for Delta airlines. She always writes Santa a letter. I pretend to mail it but send it to my parents' address. My husband puts all our X-mas presents we get for her in a GIANT red loot bag and tell her that Santa missed our house on X-mas Eve but my husband finds the presents at the baggage carousel X-mas day with a name tag on it. He just pretends to go to the airport on X-mas morning to get her bag when we really have it hidden in the garage.

Cathy said...

We buy each of our 3 kids new PJ's for Christmas wrapped in a package that says "open Christmas Eve" It's no surprise by now...but they all love the excitement of getting one present early and of waking up christmas morning in their new pajamas to open presents the next day.

That pile 'o Glitz looks delicious!!

Cathy

Jennifer said...

Just getting together with family and enjoying good food, good company, and lots of laughs!

Stamping with Heather said...

What a wonderful give away - so beautiful! I would be so lucky to win! Thanks for your continued inspiration and product features!

Milissa said...

My absolute favorite is putting up the tree because it kicks off all of the other traditions we carry out throughout the season. We always decorate the tree the day after Thanksgiving while we play Christmas music and drink hot chocolate. We also light the fireplace for the first time on this day. We live in Houston, TX so some years that means we also crank the air down to 60 too!

Susie said...

I am not quite sure why this started, but when my son was 3 yrs. old (now 18) he had a broken leg and the doctor let us keep his tiny cast. For some reason my son and husband replaced the "star" on top of the Christmas tree with his cast that year. Now every year it is our family tradition to have the tiny cast crown the top of our Christmas tree. One year awhile back we tried to change that tradition and my son was very upset to think that tradition would ever change. I only hope his cast will hold up over the years as our "star".

Maria said...

Great giveaway!!!

My favorite holiday tradition is letting the kids open one gift each on Christmas Eve and then heading to Midnight Mass.

Alesk said...

there are lots of family traditions in my family... one of my favorite ones is the food and the preparation of the food. it usually takes about 3 days prior to Xmas Eve to get everything ready. 3 days of yummy ingredients and flavor around the house!

Holly R said...

We open one gift on Christmas Eve --usually one from grandparents -- then Christmas morning we open the rest before driving to my Mom's for the rest of the day :)

Shawna said...

Wow I bearly made it. I hope I win. All that loot looks so yummy.

My favorite holiday tradition which I started with my kids was baking cookies for Santa. I have a crystal plate that is especially for Santa. Right before bed on Christmas Eve the kids and I bake and decorate cookies for Santa. We leave them under the tree in his crystal plate with a glass of milk and the next morning all that's let are the crumbs and special treats from Santa. I love seeing the look on their face when they realize Santa came.

Paul & Emily said...

Hi my beautiful cousin, Erin!! So, now that I live farrr farrr away in WA, I definitely need to win this :) :)

So, my favorite Christmas tradition...hmmm, let's see...
most definitely hiking around the Christmas tree farms until we find the perfect tree to saw down ourselves with a tiny, little, ghetto saw. :) My dad and I used to do this every year on my birthday (because it's so close to Christmas), but now my hubby and I do it!! :)

Kerryn said...

WOW that is awesome! Our tradition is leaving mince pie & milk for santa and outside the kids leave a carrot & water for the reindeer. I love seeing them create the magic of believing in Santa. I hope it doesn't end for many years.

Erin said...

my favorite tradition was opening up pajamas on christmas eve. i love having new pj's to sleep in that were so soft and it felt like i was opening up a present before it was actually christmas morning.

courtneyannb said...

My favorite tradition has to buying my three kids one piece jammies and letting them open them on Christmas eve and watching Christmas movies sipping hot cocoa until bedtime!

fabulous glitz offering!!!
My tradition is...I plant amarilyis bulbs right before Thanksgiving they begin to grow nice tall greens and I use them on the table for centerpice at thanksgiving and by Christmas they are in bloom or just starting to bloom. Just after thanksgiving the paperwhites get planted in several dish gardens (they grow faster) and by christmas they are blooming and they smell divine. Beautiful growth and sent in the middle of winter.

Suzy said...

It is just the 2 of us and the dogs - every year we snuggle in front of the tree and watch the really, really old black and white version of A Christmas carol, then go to midnight mass in a Basilica hundreds of years old. We aren't even Catholic but it is just so pretty and moving.

Brenda Millsap said...

Great, generous giveaway! Thank you!
Our favorite tradition is making goodie plates and taking them to our local elderly care homes to hand out and sing Christmas Carols with other family members! It is such a rewarding tradition and I know that my children learn and grow so much from those experiences.

Ana Costa said...

My favorite holiday tradition is going back home for Christmas and being greated by all the wonderful smells and warmth only a family home has! Being far away in another country, that is what I need to keep me going for the next year!

lisa d said...

such a nice giveaway!
my favorite holiday tradition is wrapping "santa" gifts with my husband after the kids are in bed. we play holiday music, sample treats that will go in stockings, relax and chat all evening long. it is such a calm, relaxing evening stuck right in the middle of a chaotic month.

DizzieNoodle said...

My favorite holiday tradition is watching The Grinch Whole Stole Christmas with my dad.

-Michelle

Tanya Rudd said...

Our favorite holiday tradition is finding the perfect "Real" tree and then bringing it home to decorate. When we decorate we play Dr. Seus' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and we sing all the songs out loud. Our girls love it, and it is something we ALL get to do together, regardless of age.

caughtuloknb4 said...

We always that vacation the week after Thanksgiving to hunt and get our christmas things put up!
What a great giveway item! You all rock!

Amy said...

My DH & I started a new tradition for us last year. We go to a tree farm & chop down our own Christmas tree. Haul it back to the house & voila!!

BTW - thanks for a chance at such an awesome give away!!

Heather said...

My favorite holiday tradition is the Christmas play we put on at my grandparents house every year with the children of the family playing all of the parts. It's always fun to see the new little babies play Jesus, and watch the older kids sing. I started the tradition when I was 5 years old, and it's still going strong 23 years later!

NikkiB said...

My favorite tradition is going to midnight mass on Christmas Eve with my family. I love singing Silent Night and Oh Holy Night in the candle light.

renea said...

Every year on Christmas eve we all open one present, drink cocoa or apple cider and tell the christmas story. My 5 year old loves telling us her christmas wish and my 15 year old pretends not to like it, but he does too.

Keleia said...

I think out of all the traditions that we have for Christmas, I loved the years past when the guys were younger and we would spend our Christmas Day feeding homeless men at our local community church. It taught the boys that giving really is what Christmas is all about and that there is true joy in giving of self (presence) to others instead of just receiving their own presents! Blessings, Keleia

byondbzr said...

Definitely baking Christmas cookies with my mom every year! Thank you for the chance at some of your gorgeous products!

Regan said...

i just love hanging out at home in my jammies all day!!!!

aunt25 said...

first of gotta say what a wonderful gift!

This is sort of a new tradition but it's so funny. Whomever says "I don't know" when asked what they want for Christmas receives a set of sheets. It's just funny to see who gets the sheets and to see their face.

MaRLeNeF said...

This has been my favorite holiday tradition since I was a little girl and it still is to this day! It's our Christmas Eve get together. We usually have it at my parents house or my aunt's house. We all prepare yummy foods and eat until we're all stuffed. We watch A Christmas Story and hang out. Then we open presents, which is still my favorite part LOL I can't wait!!! Thanks for having this giveaway and have a great holiday :)

Glenna said...

Our tradition never changes. The kids all come over on Christmas Eve. We enjoy a huge buffet. Then we open gifts. Then play games. On Christmas Day we have almost the identical dinner we had Thanksgiving.After stuffing ouselves we play games and watch football.

Nicki Lundeen said...

My favorite tradition is loading up the entire family and driving around looking at Christmas lights. Also, even though my kids are getting much older - I still read the Night Before Christmas.
Happy Holidays!

Jingle said...

Oh, I hope I've made it in time!!! This is a great giveaway! One of my favorite holiday traditions is our Christmas Morning breakfast! We make a wonderful French Toast breakfast with all the extras and it is a great start to the day!

PattiM said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making the same dinner that we've had for Christmas Eve (we open presents that day) since I was a kid.... Honey baked ham, fried chicken, egg salad sandwiches, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, veggie plate, avocado dip, lil BBQ weinies, alpo (velveeta cheese, hamberger, salsa-melted in a crock pot) and lots of cookies, fudge, and a cinnamon/powdered surgar topped sponge square cake.... YUMMO!!!!!
Hope everyone has a great Christmas...

Hugs,

My favorite tradition is driving around the neighborhoods that have tons of Christmas lights with my little family! I look forward to doing this every year!

Thanks for the giveaway! Glitz really has great products! I love all my Glitz!

AJ said...

What a gorgeous stocking full of goodness. My favorite holiday tradition is listening to Christmas music while snuggled on the couch, my Christmas tree glowing with tiny white lights. I guess I better get cracking on decorating! LOL!

Veronica said...

My fave Holiday Tradition is getting together on Christmas Eve with my family, eating and exchanging gifts! We laugh and cut up and the kids who are teens now, get caught up!

Erica Hettwer said...

My favorite tradition is one I do by myself but I'm hoping to add my kids to as they get older. I make tons of Christmas cookies using my Grandmother's old school Kitchenaid.

kathleen said...

each year since 1990 my family has had an oyster roast. It is our tradition. Normally it would fall on the Saturday after thanksgiving, but last year we had our first year where the married grandkids had to go to the in-laws so we switched it to two days before christmas. It was a blast, and we will do it again this year. I think it is our new tradition.

Laura said...

My favorite tradition is decorating the tree. I have all the ornaments that the boys have gotten over the years and they each put their own on the tree.

FamilyFunBunch said...

i love making christmas cookies with my kids.

Christie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is decorating one of our trees with pictures from every year the boys visited Santa. They bring back such great memories!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Timna Ashbaugh said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your products!!! I first got to see them at Creative Escape and I am kicking myself that I didn't buy more than 1 package of your bling extravaganza. You all rock!!!
My favorite holiday tradition is trimming the tree. Each year my kids get to pick the ornaments they want to put on the tree. Every year, each of them design their own ornament with a message on the inside. The message can be anything they want and we will open them on Christmas Eve and read them outloud. I am amazed at the thoughts and love they put into these. Of course, Christmas music plays in the background and we have hot apple cider or hot cocoa (with extra marshmallows). It is something the kids really look forward to too.
Bless you all this season.

Gabby or Gabriella Lynne as my mom calls me when she's mad said...

I am so excited. I am 10 years old and I hope I can win this for my mom for Christmas!!!!!!!!! My fayvorite tradition is singing carowls around the fireplace, I love to sing and I love to hear my mommy sing. My sister doesn't sing so well so it hurts my ears and I don't like it, I hope my mommy tells her not to sing this year. thank you ~Gabby

Anna said...

Hmmm...my favorite holiday tradition woulud have to be preparing for Christmas by observing Advent. This year I made a replica of the felt Advent calendar/banner that my mother made when we were kids. Each day has a symbol to be pulled from a little pocket and there is a short devotion for each one.

Kay said...

Noel said to head on over for a chance to win. I always do what Noel says!! ;)
