Winner Updates!! Congratulations to Brandi and Chrissy who have responded to their email notifcations and have received this gift.

Happy Christmas Eve!! Has anyone started exchanging gifts tonight? I remember when I was little, on Christmas Eve, before bedtime, my parents would always allow me to open ONE gift from under the tree. I usually picked the big one. ;) You know that one… that teased you for weeks. One time, it was a Cabbage Patch Kid, and I swear I didn’t sleep at all that night, I was so excited. Not one wink. I couldn’t BELIEVE IT!!! Ahhhh the fun memories.

So… today’s giveaway will be another $20 Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift certificate, so that everyone can enter! But I’m choosing TWO winners this time!

How to enter for a chance to win it? Just leave a comment below (or if you want inspiration, I’d love to hear one of your best Christmas memories) and tomorrow night by 10pm EST (12/25/2012), I will randomly select two winners. The winners will be contacted and the gift card will be sent to the email address provided (make sure it’s valid!!). NOTE: The “winner” will have 48 hours to respond to the winning email notification. If no response is received, I will randomly select another winner. Make sure to check your email, so you do not loose your chance. This is open to anyone that can receive an emailed giftcard from either of these two companies.

Since I’ve become a mom, all Christmas memories are pretty awesome. My big guy is 13 now, and he is Autistic, so every Christmas is somewhat different in our house. This year, he asked for chickens, ducks, a puppy, and “office in my room” Well, the puppy was picked up today, and Santa just delivered the office furniture, and new printer. Oh, and we burnt the cookies today…LOL :) Merry Christmas!

Here’s a memory for ya! All I wanted for Christmas when I was 7 yrs old was…wait for it…a Dolly Parton doll with a sparkly jumpsuit! I am so not kidding! I did NOT get that doll that year but did get a big head doll with Dolly Parton clothes! No they did not fit in certain areas!! But, 2yrs ago, my sweet Mom and little bro surprised me with my Dolly Parton doll!! It took me 23 yrs to get her but she is fabulous!! Rock on Maryse and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Dawn Mazzeo December 24, 2012 at 8:32 PM

My favorite Christmas memory is when my kids come downstairs and see Santa has taken big bites out of all the cookies and drunk all the milk! They get such a kick out of it. As a kid, I like to track his route on the news.

My fav memory is of Christmas 10 – 11 years ago. My family was out for Christmas dinner and we came across an abandoned kitten crying so loudy in the rain :( She was all drenched and shivering… We brought her home and took her in. She was really sweet and slept under the Christmas tree because it was warm (due to the Christmas lights). Her name is Missy and she’s the family’s fav cat and we love her!

lindsey December 24, 2012 at 8:52 PM

Desiree December 24, 2012 at 8:53 PM

my favorite memory was when my mom and dad got my first cell phone for xmas and they had made it where i had to open i would say at least 15 boxes and then when i got to the final box it had a number and it took me about 10 min to realize i was supposed to call it and then i had to follow the ringtone LOL!!!
THANk YOU Maryse for all your reviews

Elizabeth M December 24, 2012 at 8:54 PM

****I *did* win a gift card already, so you don’t have to enter me in this one, BUT, I wanted to share my best and funniest Christmas memory (at least, in recent years) with you. I still laugh and grin like an idiot when I think of it and get the picture in my head;-)

My most memorable Christmas was three years ago when my new kitten went missing out of the blue.  She was right beside me one second and gone the next.  I couldn’t find her anywhere in the house, and she didn’t reappear from some mysterious cat otherworld.  And then….I heard it.  Rustle, rustle.  Mew, mew, mew.  Hmmm.  Odd.  It would appear that my fancy new Christmas tree is meowing!  I walk up to it, stand there a minute, and suddenly out pops the face of my beloved Cleo;)  Pulled her out of that tree at least five times before I gave up and let her sleep in there.  I unplugged it and eased the light cords away from her.  She was safe….and ridiculously happy:)  Three years later, and she’s just ever so slightly spoiled.  LOL!!

Merry Christmas to everyone!! Thanks for everything, Maryse:)

Tiffany Clark December 24, 2012 at 8:54 PM

Ella December 24, 2012 at 8:54 PM

Merry Christmas! My favorite Christmas memory would involve anytime I got to be with all my family. For my husbands job we live far away from our families. Even though its nice to sit tight at home and be lazy and play with the kids it’s also fun to drive around to several different families and see them even though the driving is tiring.

Weve known for 5 long days so it was fun to finally get to let the secret out. It’s a girl!!!! :) Merry Christmas Eve!

It was a HUGE surprise & I too could not sleep all night. LOL!

My favorite Christmas memory was the year my sister’s and I wanted cabbage patch kids the we’re the year they came out very popular & were hard to get and Christmas morning we opened all our gifts….no cabbage patch kids. We cleaned up and my dad said ” hey what is in the driveway? ” we ran to the window and there was a Hugh white sack my dad went out and got it and told us that it must have fallen off Santa’s sleigh and it was filled with our cabbage patch dolls

Kelly December 24, 2012 at 11:13 PM

To this day one of my mot ridiculous Christmas memories is when I was 8 years old and woke up before everyone else on Christmas. I counted all the gifts a realized my younger brother (by 4 yrs) had 6 more gifts than me. With no concept of monetary value I changed 3 of the tags on them to make sure we each got an even amount of gifts….after all I only wanted it to be fair ;) I would have gotten away with it to, until I opened my last gift: a bat mobile. Not what a typical 8 yr old girl wants.

My mom still tells that story to every boyfriend I bring home; talk about embarrassing.

Love your website Maryse. I always get good inspiration for new books here.

Merry Christmas!

Jennifer December 24, 2012 at 11:13 PM

Merry Christmas!So many fun memories too little time! thanks for all the wonderful book ideas!

Rayni December 24, 2012 at 11:14 PM

Favorite Christmas memory was about 6-7 years ago. My husband was a EMT at the time and worked a 10hr graveyard shift meaning he came home around 6 or 7 am. The kids waited til he came home to open presents and when they were done he asked “who’s ready to take off to go to San Diego?” It was Surprise and the kids loved it. It was also a 8 hr drive, but worth it to see the beach again on Christmas day.

Carrie December 24, 2012 at 11:14 PM

My favorite Christmas was 4 years ago. It was the last Christmas I ever had with my dad. He passed away from lung cancer the following month.

Jeannie Smith December 24, 2012 at 11:18 PM

My favorite Christmas memory was actually the day after Christmas when I was about 5. My mother told me and my sister (4 years old) that Santa had come again. We were so excited and ran to the tree and she told us she was only kidding. We cried for hours. Years later, my mother later said she was sorry she ever did that – she thought it would be funny. Not really funny when you are 4 and 5 lol.

Merry Christmas!

Courtney Denton December 24, 2012 at 11:20 PM

My favorite Christmas memory is the first one being a mommy. My daughter was not quite 8 months old and we walked into the Christmas section of Walmart and her little mouth made a perfect O and her eyes got big. Then she smiled so big. It was the true meaning of Christmas seen through the eyes of my first baby. I will cherish it always.

Michaela December 25, 2012 at 12:09 AM

My best Christmas memory is from when I was 8. My parents had sent us to bed. I shared bunk beds with my younger brother and I had the top bunk. That year, our Christmas lights were up, but none of the red light worked. I was trying to fall asleep when all of the sudden, a red light went by my window. We lived at the end of a court with no close neighbors. I was also on the 3rd floor, facing the backyard. No cars would have made that light. I still say it was Rudolph. In fact, I know it was :)

Merry Christmas Maryse and everyone else!

Kit December 25, 2012 at 1:03 AM

Merry Christmas.

When I was little, my family didn’t have a lot of extra, they had this phone service you could call and “santa” or a helper elf would read you a story. Well my parents couldn’t afford it but I remember on christmas eve my dad surprised me and told me santa was on the phone! He had called me. He read me a The Night Before Christmas and told me to be good, and that he loved me. I was 6 was the best thing ever to hear. Many years later my dad passed away the day after Christmas and of course when talking to my mother we brought up good memories. I mentioned this story as a favorite of mine, she laughed and told me that my dad had run next door and borrowed the neighbors phone and called the house then ran back next door after he told me I had a call to read to me.

I hope everyone has a chance to be loved like that.
Merry Christmas

I remember my brother and I being sooo excited and barely sleeping. Then when one of us would wake up then go get the other and rush to wake our parents up, so we could open presents. Now we both have kids and its fun watching them do it (we live together, he’s a single dad with two boys and I am a single mama with one daughter) and the kids do the same thing we did. We just wish they slept a little later!! Lol. Merry Christmas Maryse, and thanks again!

Merry Christmas Maryse! Thank you for giving such giveaways.. You are so generous! Even I do not win in either of your Christmas giveaway, I still had fun entering/commenting anyway and checking my mail, hoping to win one :) But the most fun of all was reading the comments of the people (around the world) on your blog. I laughed after reading those and now I feel sad coz I can’t really remember a single happy memory of my Christmas. (I know, I’m pitiful) But still, I just find some distraction so I don’t feel lonely and sad. Like reading :) and watching foreign tv series. It really helped me a lot.. Sorry for being dramatic. I hope u all have a very merry Christmas! :)

My fav memory was when we moved into a new house when I was in 1st grade. My parents went nuts that Christmas and I got 6 or 8 Barbies and all of their items like the car, kitchen, soda shop, etc. The Barbies seemed endless!
