Christmas classics giveaway!

Recently I was sent a copy of some of my favorite Christmas movies of all time on Blu-ray.  I was so excited to show these to the boys and Moses seemed to love hearing that these were the Christmas shows that I grew up watching.  
Both boys loved them...and the good folks at Classic Media gave me a set to give away to one of you!

Just leave a comment with your name and email and a favorite holiday tradition that you are passing on to your kids. :) I will choose a winner at the end of the week. :)

  1. Yay! Love these! No husband or kids yet...but one day I'd like to make a Jesus Birthday Cake every year like we always did when I was a kid.

  2. A holiday tradition that I would like to start with my kids is to make little boxes of Christmas treats, wrap it up with love and Christian cheer, and give them to neighbours and those at church that need a pick me up. My oldest girl is almost 3, and she loves to help with baking and any other project I have going. I want to share the love of Christ at Christmas, and I think this is a good way I can do it and involve my little girls too. A tradition that I think will let our lights shine.

  3. Hi, I'm Marisa and a big fan of your LBF blog. We love to watch those classic Christmas movies with our family, too! Unfortunately, all of ours are VHS tapes (can you believe it?!) and since we bought the new Blue Ray player we have no way to watch the VHS tapes. I'd love to get this set!
    One of our favorite family traditions is going to the LDS temple in Mesa (we're LDS) to see all the wonderful Christmas lights and Nativity displays and listen to beautiful Christmas music. Then we stop at Dunkin Donuts and let our 4 kids pick out a donut and some hot chocolate to warm up with. Its always a highlight of the season :) My email is marisathwaits@gmail.com
    Merry Christmas!

  4. I love the same movies as well! One of our new traditions that we started last year was the "Elf on the Shelf". The girls named him Tommy and love looking for him each day. Such a fun little tradition that excites them everyday.

  5. What an AWESOME giveaway! Coming from huge families my hubby and I didn't bring traditions to our Christmas and so we decided to make our own. We give the kids new pjs Christmas Eve (you inspired me to make my own this yr!)and the kids get three gifts for Christmas to represent the three gifts Jesus received from the wiseman, and lastly Christmas morning we have a family breakfast and read the Christmas Story and have communion as a family.

  7. I love the Christmas break as you get to relax and spend time together at home. Less rushing around with school and activities. Finding crafty things to make and do during the break is a tradition I hope my children have fond memories of.
    PS I loved these movies as a kid and maybe my kids will too!

  10. These truly are some GREAT classics!! I love them all.

    A future tradition with my future kids will be getting a special ornament each year, and advent calendars!

  11. Such a fun giveaway! My little girl hasn't seen any of these movies yet. She just watched the Grinch for the first time last night.

    My favorite tradition that we'll be imparting to her is "adopting" a family each year. My mom always did this when we were kids and I loved going out to shop for others that I didn't know, who could really use it. Charlotte's too little to understand now, but she still likes picking out toys!

  12. My daughter isn't 2 yet, so we are still coming up with new traditions! At one point my husband talked about saving all of our change all year and keeping it in a "Christmas jar." When Christmas rolls around, we will choose someone we know of in need and leave it, anonymously, for them. We did not do it this year but I look forward to it next year, as I think she will be old enough to help. I can't wait!

  15. We love the advent activities we do every night. It's almost sad when we get to Christmas because they are over.

  17. Every Christmas Eve I give the kids a new ornament for the tree. My mom did that for us as kids too. They're the only ornaments we put on the tree, so we're working up to a full tree!

  18. My kids love making a Happy Birthday Jesus cake every year! All 5 want to make one so we end up with a lot of cake!! So much to be thankful for! I love this time of year!

  19. There are so many traditions we have passed on. My favorite is on Christmas Eve we sit around the tree (after they have their new jammies on) and we read Twa the Night Before Christmas. the 15 year old even asks for it.

  20. Oh, we love those movies!! We also do the birthday cake for Jesus. :) One of our other favorite traditions is that I buy each of us a "special" ornament. It's always glass blown and has to represent some achievement/favorite activity/favorite memory, etc., from the past year. For example, my daughter is getting a chocolate chip cookie ornament because she learned how to make them by herself this year, and my husband is getting a pencil because he's in grad school and is ALWAYS writing. I hang them on a special tree (put somewhere very high up!) because our normal tree has all unbreakable ornaments. :) My older kids especially love this tradition and can't wait to see what moment from the past year will show up on the tree. :)

    The tradition that I will be starting/passing on is to watch Elf (my favorite Christmas movie ever) on Christmas Eve.

  36. First I love all the classic movies! Traditions, we have a ton! This is the first year that everything hasn't gone up the weekend following Thanksgiving, but everyone here has been sick, and the house feels a little bare. Thanks for hosting this give away!

  37. Awesome!

    I don't have any kids yet so instead I'll share the tradition when I was little.

    My mom was really strict about bedtimes. 7:00 on the dot and we were to be in bed. But this all changed around Christmas. She would get the TV Guide and circle all the Christmas specials. We would get to stay up late with bowls of popcorn watching The Year Without a Santa Claus and Twas The Night Before Christmas among many.

  39. My son has been requesting Rudolph for weeks! My boys are 3 and 1 so we are just starting traditions in our home, but we hope to do an Advent calendar each year. They also get ornaments each year that represent what they were interested in that past year.
