  1. If I won, I would have this sent to my Mom. I got my love of books from her.

    Christmas tradition: We always have hot chocolate and listen to Christmas music while decorating the tree.

  2. A Christmas tradition or Christmas memory of yours…

    Every black friday we would put up our tree. Whether fake or real, even at times when we’d be going out to chop (well, saw) the tree down for ourselves (from a tree farm). Decorating, christmas music… the works.

  3. One of my favorite Christmas memories was when we lived in Texas. My mom found one of those Christmas village places that had “snow” falling for real during Christmas Eve day! It was so much fun. It was just like I remembered from the snowfalls back in MN.

    + I am already an email subscriber!

  4. One of my favorite Christmas traditions/memories from childhood was always spending Christmas Eve at my Grandparents.
    Please enter me…I’ve been wanting to read this one for quite some time.

  5. If I won this I would send it to Amy-a friend who should experience the joy of this book. My mum would make fruitcake every Christmas and I just took mine out of the oven.

  6. I would want the book for my coworker Leanne. She loves to read and we share books.
    Christmas memory: We would all get together on my mother’s side of the family Christmas Eve and go to midnight mass. Afterwards, we would go back to my grandparent’s house for brunch. When we got home at 2 or 3 in the morning, we’d open our gifts (Santa came while we were gone) and then go to bed. This allowed everyone to sleep in Christmas morning.

  7. One of our Christmas traditions is that we always have a train under the tree or somewhere as part of our decorations.
    I thought the trailer was very interesting and I have a friend in mind!

  8. I would like this for my mom, Sally. We are working on getting her to read different authors and genres. She has tried several of my book club books and liked them. She normally reads straight romance.

    Favorite Christmas memory: eating pasties at my grandmas’s house after midnight mass and watching the radar on TV showing where in the world Santa’s sleigh was. We knew when it got too close to the United States it was time to get home and get to bed!

  9. I read this as a book club read and whilst I thought it was well written, it just wasn’t ‘my cup of tea’.
    Not being eligable for the competition, I thought I’d answer anyway. A Christmas tradition in our family was the eating of tinned hotdogs at my grandparents house first thing on Christmas morning – a thing we never ate at any other time of the year, they were delicious.

  10. This was my favorite book I read this year! I wanted to share it, so I gifted my copy… and now I regret not keeping it for myself! LOL.

    My favorite Christmas tradition is labeling the “open first” presents on Christmas Eve. Everyone looks under the tree and chooses the present that intrigues them the most. I make up handwritten labels for everyone’s first choice (assuming it is approved by the gift-giver), and those are set aside as the first presents that get opened on Christmas morning. 🙂

  11. My dog and I do the Jingle Bell dog walk to benefit our local humane society. We make a new costume each year and my dog has a good time playing with all the other dogs.

  12. Every year since I was very young my Mom always bought everyone in our family a book – usually something I would never have thought of myself – and I look forward to it every year. I would love to win this book to give to her this year. Thanks so much.

  13. Since I’m Jewish, Christmas is relativly new to me (I have a christian boyfriend) so I love everything about it. Staying in jammies and opening presents, making cookies, getting together with the whole family on X-mas eve…

  14. One thing we do each year is get together with all the kids and grandkids and make gingerbread cookies for the Christmas tree

  15. A favorite Christmas tradition of mine is decorating the Christmas tree with all of my family members home for the holidays. It makes for special times. 🙂

  16. Hi-

    One of my favorite Christmas memories is the smell of Scottish Shortbread baking in our house – my Dad is from Scotland and was a baker there. When he came to the US, he took a job in construction and seemingly left baking behind. But every year at Christmas he would make batch after batch of Shortbread!. It was great to see this very tough man with an apron in the kitchen. Many of my friends still ask for some of the shortbread at Christmas. It is one of my favorite memories.

    I would give this book to a fellow reader from a book swap site who generously offered me some of her points to get a book that I was trying to get for a book club. I would love to pay back her generosity!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
