Hello, darlings! Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it with me, and Happy Holidays to those of you who don't! No matter what you do with your holiday, I have a lovely giveaway going on today in honor of Christmas!

Really, the prizes are pretty awesome. It's like a holiday gift from me to you! Like, extra special. Because, you know, it's the holidays!

But seriously, I think that a lot of you are going to love this giveaway. It's going to run from now through January 29. So by the time I choose winners it'll be long past Christmas, but whatever!

Well, as long as you read my Giveaways page (SERIOUSLY) before entering then everyone will be happy. Me, you, the random person down the street. I am not kidding.

Well, maybe just a little. About the random person. Not the actual reading part. Please do that. Don't make me beg.

Good luck, roses! Oh, and if you're celebrating Christmas with me, then have an absolutely marvelous one! I hope you get everything you've asked for! As for the rest of you, enjoy your day off! Relax! Live!
