Share the Love: The Night Before Christmas...

Wednesday, December 9

I'm giving books this Christmas to just about everyone this year.  I can't help it...I love to read, and love to foster the love in reading in just about everyone I know.  

That's why I think this book sold by Hallmark is so very special.  Have you seen it? It's "The Night Before Christmas" and you record your voice reading the story.   

My Aunt purchased one of these for her grandchildren and recorded it for each one of them.  She used bells, and cups to simulate the reindeers, and my Uncle played the part of Santa.  They had tons of fun recording it, and I am sure her grandchildren will treasure it, and listening to it will become a tradition for them.  I think it is so magical for little ones to be able to hear the voice of someone you love whether they live near or far reading a Christmas classic.

I was going to give one of these away to celebrate the season, but my Hallmark is all sold the only thing I can do now is giveaway a coupon for $10 off the purchase of this book (you can buy up to three), in hopes that you can still buy it where you live if you would like one.  If you are interested leave a comment.  I will select a winner from the comments on Thursday 12/10.  The coupon is good for US Hallmark stores only :(  Happy Holidays!

What do you have to share today?

Share the Love is a weekly meme hosted by Seductive Musings every Wednesday. 
  • Every Wednesday post whatever it is that you love on your blog or website.
  • Then leave a link to your post in the comments on the weekly Share the Love post at Seductive Musings. If you don't have a blog, that's ok you can still share the love in your comment on the weekly Seductive Musings post.
  • What can you share...well that depends on what you love :) Here are some ideas: a new blog or website, a great recipe that is a taste bud triumph, new shoes or purse that you seriously can't afford but lust after anyway, a great love story like the ones from When Harry Met Sally, a love note to someone special in your life (or wish was), a book you just adore and can't wait to share with someone, a song or CD that plays on repeat until it's worn out, poems, pictures, videos, or even baby giggles :) I think you get the idea.

Hallmark always has such special and nice things.
this book is a lovely way for someone who can't be home for Christmas to share the holiday with their little ones. Depending on how long they last, it could be a nice legacy when someone passes away.

The voice is so important....My mother passed away a couple of years ago and we played all the old 8mm home movies she took on her Bell and Howell camera she had purchased years ago and a big white screen in my family room....and although it was great fun watching the film, I sure wished I could hear her voice and my dads and grandpas, etc.....This is a great gift for all those we leave behind!!

I agree Mitzi...while I am lucky enough to still have my parents living I miss my granparents terribly and old movies are cherished because you can see and hear them again and relive those treasured times. That's one of the reasons why I thought this was such a great gift idea.

I've seen these advertised on tv and they look like the coolest thing ever! And what a special memory to have for future generations! So please count me in!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
