TWELVE BOOKS FOR CHRISTMAS by Vonnie Davis

 
Who doesn't love a chance at winning something? This past year I've been fortunate enough to win nine books by leaving comments on various blogs. For someone who reads a couple books a week, that amounts to a month of free reading, but what's more important is having a chance to read new authors--new to me, anyway.

So here I am taking part in a blog hop with TWELVE books up for grabs, PLUS a Swiss Colony box of goodies. Oh, yeah, sounds like a great deal to me. All you have to do is answer a question here on my blog and then do the same at the other eleven blogs. Ten minutes of your time for a chance to win a great package. Easy...peasy...breezy for the holidays.

My question is this: What is your favorite Christmas TV Special? My kids and I used to love "Frosty the Snowman." What about you? Simply leave your favorite TV holiday movie/special show and your email address in a comment, and you're entered to win a copy of MONA LISA'S ROOM.
 

** To be eligible for the complete gift package: ALL 12 books and Swiss Colony box of goodies, you MUST visit and comment at ALL the blogs linked below. Good Luck, my friends!!!
 
Here are the 12 author blog links


 
Gwen,

You won't believe this email. I'm sitting in a French safe house, eating caviar and drinking champagne with a handsome government agent, Niko Reynard. He's wearing nothing but silk pajama bottoms and mega doses of sex appeal. I'm in big trouble, little sister. He's kissed me several times and given me a foot massage that nearly caused spontaneous combustion. I'm feeling strangely virginal compared to the sexual prowess this thirty-year-old man exudes.
 

When I came to Paris for a bit of adventure, I never imagined I'd foil a bombing attempt, karate-kick two men, and run from terrorists while wearing a new pair of stilettos. I've met a German musician, a gay poet from Australia, and the most delightful older French woman.
 

Don't worry. I'm safe--the jury's still out on yummy Niko, though. The more champagne I drink, the less reserved I feel. What an unforgettable fortieth birthday!

A movie that always brings back incredible and happy memories of my own childhood is The March of The Wooden Soldiers or also known as Babes In Toyland. :)

I don't watch the typical Christmas special programs but back in the day when my kids were young, we all loved Charlie Brown's Christmas and the Island of Lost and Misfit Toys (I think that's the name).

I love Christmas Shows - I have to empty the DVR every year to make sure I get all my favorites - this year I added a new one Christmas For Holly Based on Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor (Friday Harbor #1) by Lisa Kleypas - It comes on Again 12/20

Rhianna said...

There're so many that are fun but I'm really partial to old ones I grew up with like Mickey's Christmas Carol and Rudloph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It's nice to watch them each year and be brought back to my childhood when Christmas was still very magical. :)

I have to agree with Tory Richards.
A Christmas Story is my favorite! I love that movie. But, like her, I also love White Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life.
Thanks so much for participating in this giveaway. The hop is fun!

My favorite Christmas special is Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, probably because Santa falls in love.

Nay Nay said...

My favorite Christmas Movies are: It’s A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, starring a very young Natalie Wood, White Christmas with Bing Crosby, A Christmas Carol starring Alistair Sim, Home Alone 1 & 2, Die Hard (I know it’s not an actual Christmas movie, but its set around Christmas time) and the animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Of course Christmas would not be complete without “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. Most of them come on TV around the holidays. Have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win. <^_^>

I don't watch Christmas specials on television. If there is a marathon of a classic television show I'll watch that on Christmas.

I have two favorites Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story. Those are must watches every year.

Booksrforever123 said...

the year without a santa claus, I think it is called. I haven't watched any of the shows in the last 4 years when we cut cable to save money and I can't remember what is out there.

Belinda G said...

My favorite Christmas special to watch is "Elosie at Christmastime." I watch it several times during the season. It's a heartwarming story about the antics of a little girl whose home is an upscale hotel. She has a heart of gold and thinks she can fix the world of the people she loves. Check it out. A wonderful movie!

Thanks for the opportunity to share. Best wishes to you and your family during the holidays;

My favorite Christmas special is a carton called Twas the Night Before Christmas with the little mouse who breaks the town clock. But you can't go wrong with the timeless classics Rudolph and Frosty and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.

AJ Nuest said...

Aw, crap. 33 comments? I'm NEVER gonna win. LOL The favorite holiday movie at the Nuest house is hands down, A Christmas Story. We all laugh for different reasons. :-)

Tori Alainn said...

Thought I answered this one, so sorry if this is a repeat. I love Frosty The Snowman, I still cry when he melts.

Johanne said...

I have to say that ''Home Alone'' and ''Christmas Lampoon Vacations'' are really my favorite!!
Happy Holidays Everyone!!

Shannon Bereza said...

I have to say the Grinch Who Stole Christmas is my favorite. I love the meaning behind it. It really is about the spirit of the season. We all love gifts, but having family and love in your life is priceless.

It's not Christmas time until I watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I remember getting very excited when I was kid when all the Christmas specials came on. I couldn't wait for Rudolph.
