5 days and counting until Christmas! It’s almost here. Just a few more sleeps. ;)

For today’s “Countdown to Christmas” author Jane Harvey-Berrick has a signed set of books for one lucky winner here!


Jane has recently printed a limited supply of her four books;

And by limited supply, she means 120 of each, and numbered. She has reserved her #4 of 120, of each book, for this giveaway.  Jane will personalize each book and autograph them to the winner!

The ‘giveaway’ is international and as the books will be personalized to the winner, Jane will post the books from England.  Also, the giveaway will include a print copy of Lifers when it is available. She anticipates that to be around about the publication date (publication date of 13 February 2014), but if the print copy is behind schedule she will provide the winner with an e-copy in the interim.

How to enter for a chance to win this awesome book set? Just leave a comment below (any comment will work, but you can also let me if you open any presents on Christmas eve) and by tomorrow by 11pm EST (Friday December 20th 2013), I will randomly select ONE winner. The winner will be contacted and once I receive a response back confirming the address information, I will forward it to the author and she will send your signed books!

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 lose your chance. This is open to anyone that can receive an emailed giftcard from either of these two companies.

I don’t have any family and my friends always do it on Christmas Day so that is when I do. When I do have gifts early though I wait. I like the anticipation of wondering what it is!

What a great prize and how thoughtful of Jane Harvey-Berrick to donate to us!

Happy Holidays,

Anne McHenry December 19, 2013 at 8:34 PM

Baaaahhh! Squeeee! Eeeeek! How fun! As a kid, my family opened gifts on Christmas Eve at my grandmothers house. Once she passed away, the traditions changed. We now write a loving note to a family member to open on Christmas Day in memory of her. I have 31 notes, as she died when I was 9.

Sheila G December 19, 2013 at 9:01 PM

My parents started it probably because
They didn’t want to get up early on Christmas
Morning. LOL

Fabiana Otranto December 19, 2013 at 9:09 PM

We normally have dinner and open a few gifts on Cxmas Eve. Cxmas day is for the kids to open gifts…even though they’re teens now. But..this year, because of our $$$ situation, I don’t think they’re will be any gifts. Maybe a few from family. It’s ok. They understand, that even without gifts, being together is the best. Anyway, I would love the gift of the 4 books. I haven’t been able to buy books lately, and that would be a awesome Cxmas gift to me..:)

Kimberly Donovan December 19, 2013 at 9:10 PM

Our Christmas Eve tradition is to go to church after dinner then get home to have some snacks then let my son open a gift or two then let him go to sleep so Santa Claus can leave his gift for my son…hehehe the adults open the gifts on Christmas Day.

Sharon Chalk December 20, 2013 at 9:18 AM

oh I love trying to win free signed books!! as far as presents opened on Christmas Eve as a child that didn’t happen cause I come from a family of 7 kids and so we each only got one present from santa. But with my daughter it is different. When she was 4 yrs old she opened a present and looked me straight in the eyes and said there is no Santa is there.I said of course there was,why would she think there wasn’t,she showed me the present and it had Kmart imprinted on the box and she said you bought this at kmart,I told her that Santa sometimes had to pick up presents at stores like Kmart because his elves just could not make enough toys for all the kids, She was not buying it lol.The next year I got a supervisor job at the largest hospital in a 4 state area and always had to work,so she spent Christmas Eve with me opening presents and then went to her dads for Christmas Day.It became a habit.Then when she had her 2 kids,her in-laws always celebrated on Christmas Day and of course Santa came on Christmas Day,and so the tradition continued with her family coming to my house on Christmas Eve,the Santa comes around 6am Christmas Day and then they go to their other grandparents.It works for us ,so I imagine we will continue to do it till the day I die(hopefully not for another 20 years or so lol)

Nikki Targum December 20, 2013 at 9:22 AM

Tracie December 20, 2013 at 5:59 PM

My when my daughter was in her teens we started playing board games on Christmas Eve since my husband was in the military we never lived close enough to see family for the holidays so it was just the three of us. Whoever won the game got to decide if we opened presents on Christmas Eve or waited till christmas morning. Needless to say my daughter or I always won so we opened on Christmas Eve. Since she’s married and out of the house my husband and I prefer to open our gifts to each other on Christmas Eve so we can focus on the grandchildren christmas morning.

Dena December 20, 2013 at 6:24 PM

We do pajamas for Christmas Eve and I love sleeping in my new pjs lol. Thank you!!!

My family lives in different states. You can open a mailed gift immediately. Christmas Day we open gifts from family and friends that lives in our town.

We open presents at the stroke of midnight. We eat a late Christmas Eve dinner first and then we wait for midnight!

Btw, the author wrote a Christmas short story feat. Sebastian and Caroline.

When I was a child, opening 1 gift on Christmas Eve was a tradition. The others had to wait till Christmas.

We go to my sisters in our pajamas Christmas morning and exchange gifts.
