Christmas In July -- Yes, Another Giveaway!

Ok, by now, y'all probably are completely bug-eyed at all the giveaways around this place . . . not to mention the HUNDREDS of free things spilling from here.

Yet, I, being the crazy and generous sort that I am . . . I have another offer for you.

Most of these giveaways we've all been speedily visiting and frantically entering with our names and pertinent information are items we can currently use and will receive very soon after the giveaway is over.

What I am offering you is a set of 24 handmade Christmas cards . . . again an assortment, because I detest making the same card over and over again. It just stunts my creativity and puts me in a box . . . creates one more need for therapy, and who has the money for that! I am giving this stuff away, remember!?!

I have no photo right now of any Christmas card, but I may post one before the end of the week : ) I know you may not be able to tell with this dark photo, but the card stock in this particular example is hunter green with an ivory fleck on the inside. There is also verse on the inside, but I couldn't get that photo to cooperate this morning.


Anyway, back to the giveaway. I will choose a winner from anyone who comments by 5 pm, Friday, July 27.

However, the clincher is . . . you will not receive the cards from me any time before September 1. If you're like me, you won't be filling out Christmas cards before Thanksgiving anyway, so this shouldn't put you in a bind to wait until Sept. to get these.

Now, to make this a little more fun than just putting . . . "Enter me, please!" . . . I would like for you to tell me your favorite Christmas song (religious or secular) and tell me why it is your favorite.

I'll get things started. I love, love, love Christmas music and listen to it every month of the year except January.

My all-time favorite is Silent Night. When I became a mommy the first time, I had such a small repertoire of songs to sing for my new baby that I resorted to singing Silent Night every night for the first year. It just continued with all of my babies until it became the most requested at our house, no matter what time of year.

My new fave is this song by Third Day. It touches my heart and reminds me of a desire God laid on my heart five years ago.

So, now it's your turn. Tell me your favorite Christmas Song and why it's your favorite!

I love "The Holly and the Ivy". Not only is it a beautiful carol, it truly tells the whole Christmas story.

Ohhhhh I think my favorite is Little Drummer Boy. I love what it says and the harmonies in the various tunes.

* Silent Night
* Star of Bethlehem
* Joy to the World

Two of my most favorite are Silent Night and Silver Bells

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 1:13:00 AM, Blogger Mercy said...

I love "Joy to the World" because my son is in love with it and so it reminds me of him.

My christmas's growing up were really not all that grand, so I've been learning about the importance of this special day.

awe, anyway, I could get a bit mushy here, so I'll just stop and say thanks for putting me in the drawing to win. :-)

"What Child is This?" has always been special to me. I think because even as a child I loved picturing the lyrics in my mind and pondering the wonder of it all.

I'm totally not a "Santa" lover, but I love Harry Connick Jr.'s (It must have been ol') Santa Claus. Or basically anything from the When My Heart Finds Christmas CD. I love it so much, I pulled it up on Naptser and I'm listening to Christmas music right now!
Oh, I would love the cards!

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 6:59:00 AM, Blogger MelissaR said...

My traditional favorite is "Joy to the World." I also always cry when I hear the Steven Curtis Chapman song about going home for Christmas. My grandfather died in December (a few years ago), and the following week I heard the song for the first time.

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 7:18:00 AM, Blogger Beth/Mom2TwoVikings said...

You "stole" my favorite! *wink* Before the Vikings, it was a toss up between "Silent Night" and "Away in the Manger" but after nursing two newborns through long cold winter nights, I can't barely get through the first verse of "Silent Night" without crying! LOL

I'm also a fan of pretty anything onAmy Grant's "Home for Christmas" album - especially "Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song)"

God Bless.

Mary Do you know is my new favorite, uit used to be The Christmas Song, you know...Chestnuts roasting...

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 7:59:00 AM, Blogger mkuntz said...

I have several of them. I've always loved "Do You Hear What I Hear" from when I was a child. Can't exlain the reasoning.

But in terms of newer songs, I love Kenny Rogers with "Mary, Did You Know" That one brings me to tears every time. I think it has something to do with being a mother and imagining how Mary must have felt (as if anyone could!)
Thanks for the opportunity to win a great prize,

Wow, I am torn between O Come, O Come Emmanuel and Mary Did You Know. I think I'll pick Mary Did You Know because I can no longer listen to that song while I am driving. Last time I did, I had to pull over because I was tearing up so much. Thanks for adding me to your drawing.

I have many favorite Christmas songs that bring a host of wonderful memories. But my all time favorite is "O Holy Night". As a small child, I remember listening to the same two women in my church sing a duet of this song year after year. My small country church was dark with just candles lit. Very powerful.

Thanks again!

Only one favorite?? It would have to be "Mary Did You Know?", it just says things that I've oftened wondered.

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 9:04:00 AM, Anonymous melissa said...

"Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem" The version that I LOVE is sung by a men's choir (not sure of name) and they sing it acapella. Absolutely beautiful! And then my other favorite is "I wanna hippopotamus for Christmas", mainly because it's cute and fun and it seems to get on people's nerves. hehe (You've got it in your head now, don't you?) Oh, and I can't forget, just about any version of "Oh Holy Night" Ok, I must stop now.

Like you, when I became a mom I didn't know many songs. I started singing "Away in a Manger" when I rocked my babies. They are now 19 & 20 and it is still my favorite all time song any time of the year. LOL! I would also sing Silent Night!

Count me in for your drawing. I love handmade cards.

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 10:23:00 AM, Blogger LisaCate said...

My fave song is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and the reason is silly - I never listened to the lyrics until Rosemary Clooney sang it on "ER" in 1993. I was so touched by the lyrics that since then it's my favorite by far! :)


And thanks for stopping by my blog - I appreciate it!

oh that would be splendid! I tried to make some last year and the world declared I was not crafty and I should never try again...and so I wont!

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 10:28:00 AM, Blogger Cath said...

There are so very many Christmas songs I like but the one I usually start to sing earliest in the season is one I learned in Spanish I back in 7th grade -- Hacia Belen. It tells of Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem.

Why do I like this so much? I'm not sure. The melody can get into my mind and heart and stay there, making joyful music for me all day long.

On a different note (no pun intended), there are two secular Christmas songs by Cledus T. Judd that rock our van as we drive: Merry Christmas From The Whole Fam Damily and Only 364 Shopping Days 'Til Christmas.

I love Christmas cards and Christmas music, also. My favorite is "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" because it expresses so well my joy over the Savior's birth. All these many, many, many years later I still come to the stable in Bethlehem that is in my heart to welcome to King!

More cards? Love it!

My faves I think are "What Child is This?" and "Little Drummer Boy". I've always loved the "Greensleeves" tune that the first is written to, and the Drummer Boy I've loved since I was a kid. I think because the idea of a child offering what he had to Jesus always struck a chord with me.

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 11:00:00 AM, Blogger Christine said...

My fav well known Christmas hymn is "O Holy Night"....and I also like an old Moravian hymn called "Morning Star O Cheering Sight"
here's a verse:
Morning Star, O cheering sight!
Ere Thou cam'st, how dark the night!

Jesus mine, in me shine,
Fill my heart with light divine.

Thanks for this offer!Count me in!

At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 11:46:00 AM, Blogger SB said...

definitely "O Holy Night". I usually cry when anyone sings it. Last year, I snuck upstairs to tuck my kids in and overheard my then 4 year old singing it and I bit a hole (literally) in my lip, while bawling, listening to him offer up his song to the Lord.

Now all I do is THINK about that song and I cry.

I am SUCH a mom. And darn proud.

It is so very hard to pick just one song, because Christmas is kind of a big deal with my family/extended family/boyfriend's family.

Basically, anything off of Bing Crosby's White Christmas cd will reduce me to a puddle of nostalgia. "Holly and the Ivy" and "White Christmas" are definitely my top two - they're both beautiful songs that remind me of us all getting bundled into the car with mugs of cocoa to go browse Christmas lights.

I have a particualr fondness of Good King Wenceslas because it was one of the first songs I learned to play on the piano.

Currently my favorite Christmas song is a simple classic. It is "Jingle Bells". Only because when my son was two last Christmas and singing this non stop in his lttle voice with some made up words it was too cute.

My favourite Christmas song is "Mary Did You Know?". I had never heard it before until a very good friend played it for me and we listened to the words over and over again. She has since moved away, but everytime I hear it, I think of her.

Wonderful giveaway, and so generous. My fav Christmas song is O Holy Night. I actually had never heard song (while I lived in England) until I met my hubby and came to CA to be married and meet his family. We married on 19th Dec and I heard that song the first Christmas I spent with his Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles and cousins (he's an only child). I loved it instantly, then I heard it a few years later sung by one of my fav singers, Celine Dion and that is my all time favorite version. :-)

My true favorite is "The Little Drummer Boy". I just love the story, that this little boy knew Jesus was so special, had nothing "material" to give him, so gave what he could...something he could do himself..a part of himself - his music

I am having a hard time coming up with my favorite Christmas song, but I think I am going with "O Holy Night."

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 9:48:00 PM, Blogger Kim N said...

I love "Mary's Lullaby". When I rock my babies at Christmastime and listen to it I feel like I can relate a bit to how she must have felt.

 
At Wednesday, July 25, 2007 10:22:00 PM, Blogger ~Nancy~ said...

I love "What Child is This" since I used it as my lullaby for my only child and "Do You Hear What I Hear" simply for its haunting beauty.

Oh Holy Night, because it is about the true meaning of the season and also because the night my hubby and I got engaged, when we got in the car that song was just starting and I remember thinking that hubby was truly God given. :)

My favorite Christmas song ever is "O Holy Night". I sang this one year at church in a trio, and it was the most wonderful feeling!

My favorite is "Mary, Did You Know?" I love the words ... and it makes me think about my own children -- what does God have planned for them ... how will they impact their world for Christ?

My favorite is "Oh Holy Night" because I heard a man sing it once when I was about 19 years old and it blew me away. I never thought about the words until that day!
