A term coined by pop culture by the ever popular and much loved and missed sitcom: Seinfeld! Now defined on Wikipedia as a "secular holiday celebrated on December 23 which serves as an alternative to participating in the pressures and commercialism of the Christmas and holiday season," this holiday gets back to some of the more important parts of Christmas: FAMILY!
For me this time of year brings up happy and warm memories of family and friends..... being together, making new memories, celebrating old ones. In my mind I can smell the cookies baking, the fresh pine permeating the entire house. We used to play outside in the cold or snow for hours before coming inside with our rosy cheeks to read stories, build forts, or play games. We would enjoy a cup of tea or hot cocoa and a cookie (if we were good) while the fire crackled.
I feel like we rush around way to much these days especially during this time of year. We try to cram in our greeting cards, holiday parties, shopping, Santa, decorating, hiding that sneaky Elf on the Shelf (or in our house the Bumble who mumbles), baking, parade floats, planning for Christmas dinner, tree lightings, caroling, the list goes on and on and on..... my head is honestly spinning so much already and it's barely the beginning of December!
In honor of Festivus and Family and to remind you to SLOW DOWN and take some time to really enjoy everything with your loved ones this season, we've teamed up with some of our local Cape Cod and Plymouth Businesses to bring you some amazing giveaways. Make sure you take some time to support your local businesses-many of our donations below come from family businesses and local parents so let's show them some love!
All giveaways will close at 11:59pm on December 19, 2013. All winners will be contacted via the email the provide upon entry by 12/20/13.
