Well, the holiday season is in full swing around here- we had our Ugly Christmas Sweater Day & Secret Santa gift exchange here at the county building yesterday (I made the person I had do a scavenger hunt around the building to find their gift!) and I’ve been baking non-stop for the last several days… fudge, burnt sugar almonds, several different types of cookies… whew!
I thought I’d share an ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ picture to get everyone in the holiday giveaway mood…
The picture above is just a sample of the many Ugly Christmas Sweaters that made an appearance today. (I thought I’d better protect our identities since we’re all fashion ‘don’ts’!) But I’ll tell you… that’s me on the left- like my earrings? I borrowed them off the tree in the background!
Okay, back to the REAL reason you’re here… our last GIVEAWAY of the year!
I’ve decided to make this last giveaway about something that’s VERY near and dear to my heart… FOOD! 🙂 I mean, who doesn’t LOVE all the seasonal food that comes with the holidays?!
To enter… Leave a comment telling us your favorite holiday food tradition. Have you got gingerbread cookie baking down to a science? Do you make your own eggnog from scratch? Do you actually like fruitcake? 😉
This giveaway is for a San Juan County- Utah’s Canyon Country Travel Cup and T-shirt with an image of Monument Valley on the back. (Available sizes are: S, M, L, & 2XL)
This contest will run until 12:00pm (noon) MST December 28st, 2011 and the winner will be selected at random. The winner’s name will be announced both on this blog, and on our facebook page, so be sure to watch for your name! *In our first contest we never heard back from one of our winners- we can’t send you your prize if we can’t contact you!
Since I can’t take part in the giveaway, I’ll get things started and share my favorite holiday foods here…
This is one of my all-time favorite chocolates- Melty Kiss from Japan- I got hooked on them when I was living in Japan and I’ve been borderline obsessed with them ever since! (The writing in the blue area says that they’re only available in the winter- so they REALLY are a seasonal treat!)
Another is a new favorite of mine, but I think it’s a keeper…
Eggnog and coke… it might sound a little strange, but try it- it’s SO GOOD!
