Bloggy Giveaway #2

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Okay so here is my 2nd giveaway. (Be sure and check out giveaway #1 as well!)

I have a gourmet candle business that I run from my home. We have lots of different candle and bath/body products.

But, I thought I would giveaway one of our Cinnamon Bella Bun candles. You can see what it looks like here. I figured this is a great time of year, being that it is Fall, for someone to burn one of these. It smells just like there are cinnamon buns in the oven...without the calories!

All you have to do is leave a comment here...tell me about one of your family traditions for Thanksgiving. I will pick the winner based on your traditions and you will have your new Bella Bun to burn by Thanksgiving.

There is no need to enter more than one and you don't have to have a blog to enter. US residents only please.

Oh and don't forget to check out this site to enter LOADS of other giveaways. Did I mention they are all FREE? Oh what fun!!

My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is our annual church service. It is every year on Thanksgiving day from 9-10am. It is just a time for the congregation to give testimonies and we sing some hymns.

AutumnFawn said...

I love candles!!
My cooking tradition has always been to make Double Layer Pumpkin Pie, homemade cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole.
Our eating tradition has always been to spend it with my husband's family when we lived in Memphis. We have been in Arizona now for 1 year, so we will begin a new tradition of eating at my family's house.
For years, dating back to when I was a little girl, we would always put up Christmas decorations Thanksgiving weekend and start playing Christmas music!!

My favorite part about Thanksgiving is spending it with my family. We just have a nice quiet day together. Before we say grace, we share what we're grateful for. It always turns into a very tender, special family moment.

Angel Wilde said...

We go around the table at Thaknsgiving and say what we are thankful for and pray as a family. I want to star a new tradition a friend of mine does. She has a white tablecloth and each year her family writes one thing they are thankful for and signs it with the date. It's fun to see the handwriting change and you watch the children mature in their items they are thankful for! Your candle sounds yummy!

mavis said...

We were rather ascetic vegetarians growing up, so come thanksgiving it was all about the Martinelli's. We didn't drink with our food the rest of the year, as it interferes with proper digestion. So imagine the non-alcoholic orgy among 5 siblings, when presented with their own bottle of sparkling cider. It was madness.

Our newer tradition is celebrating my almost tow-year-old's birthday. He was born the week of Thanksgiving (this year it is Thanksgiving) so we have a party for him with my inlaws.

One of our Thanksgiving traditions is to serve sauerkraut in honor of our poor German ancestors who didn't have any other food to eat on TG after they moved to the US.

I would love to be entered into your contest. Unfortunately, I have to work a lot of Thanksgivings in order to have Christmas off. But, when I am home, our whole extended family gets together and everyone brings something diffrent as an appetizer and a dessert. We then enjoy trying something new each year and usually get to add something new to our recipe collection.

Melanie said...

What a cute candle! We started a new tradition two years ago by boxing up meals and delivering them to people working on that day. Like the gas station attendants, etc. What a blessing it's given to us.

Katy-Anne said...

We don't have any family traditions yet. This is because we only got married right before thanksgiving last year so we were still honeymooning, but also due to the act that I'm Australian and have never yet experienced a true thanksgiving. This year we are going to do a real dinner at my mother in laws house. Our church is starting an annual thanksgiving revival so I guess you could say we are establishing some traditions. We didn't have thanksgiving in Australia, it's only since coming here.

Won't that make people mad at you? To smell it and get all salivating and everything and then there's nothing to eat? LOL Bring it on! I love to torture my kids!

Jamie said...

After Thanksgiving dinner the whole family (BIG) sits in a circle and does an ornament exchange - the game where you draw numbers and then can steal from each other. Every one loves it, and over the years your ornament collection really grows!

Kristiem10 said...

Sounds like it smells delicious.

ooooh, i love cinnamon scented, well anything

Sonya said...

This is so cute! I'd love it! As for family traditions on Thanksgiving, we have lots of them. We eat, watch football, we always sing "We Gather Together" before the meal, and one thing we started recently was this. Hubby prints out a Bible verse that pertains to each person in our family (what they might be going through at the time, verses of thanksgiving for something they were blessed with, etc.)Each family member reads the verse and we talk about how it is related to our lives right now. It's turned out very well and really makes each of us reflect on God's goodness to us. We usually play boardgames later and sometimes we watch thanksgiving specials on tv (like Charlie Brown or whatever we can find).

Tamara said...

Since we homeschool, we stop all other history studies and study about the Pilgrims, etc. all through November. We have several favorite books we read through one being The Story of the Pilgrims. We added several others this year from V.F. one being Of Plimoth Plantation by William Bradford himself. We're really looking forward to Nov. 1rst!

I love the idea of cinnamon buns with NO calories!! :-D Thanks for offering them.

eyeslikesugar said...

Those look delicious! One tradition our family does is always hearts of palm salad! Romaine lettuce, red onion, mandarin oranges, croutons, red wine vinaigrette dressing, and of course, LOTS of hearts of palm.. at least I hope lots.

I hope I win the yummy candles!

Jason and Caryn said...

Wonderful! : )

mamaj said...

I love the smell of cinnamon!

To be honest, we haven't really built up any Thanksgiving traditions yet. We just go with the flow and spend it wherever seems to be the best place. We've tried to keep up a gratitude journal that we all contribute to on Thanksgiving as a family memento.

Christine said...

Please enter us. What a great prize. I bet it smells and looks very yummy. Thanks

Dana a/k/a Sunshine said...

Hello! Nice blog :) Thank you for giving away this nice candle.

I don't have a very large extended family. I am a single parent of a 12 year old son. My parents live in town near me and my sister lives in another state (Missouri). We always get together at Thanksgiving and just hang out. Big dinner, of course, so our tradition is we stuff ourselves silly, usually rest after dinner and have a great time visiting and playing dominoes or cards and then...we LOVE to go see a movie at the theater. I know, its kinda hokey, but we love it. And, then, the day AFTER Thanksgiving, well, the craziness ensues because we LOVE to get the after Thanksgiving bargains. We get a lot of our Christmas shopping done by the crack of dawn. We enjoy crawling out of bed at 4:00 a.m. or earlier to get to the stores bright and early. It is silly, but we have a great time doing it.

Well, hope you had a Happy Halloween.

Dana from Texas :)

Jenna Z said...

Mmm, love smelly candles! We play hide the pickle (pickle ornament) at my annual cookie exchange. There is a prize for the one who finds it on the tree.

Don and Lisa Osborn said...

Cinnamon is my favorite fall scent!

My husband and I don't live near family but have a very dear church family. We get together with our adopted family every year. We go around the table and share what we're thankful for. There have been years of sadness--sickness, loss of loved ones, separation due to deployment, infertility and happy years of babies being brought into the family and the adoption of our child and marriages. We celebrate each other, friendship, family, and abundant blessings we have!

Count me in! My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is Black Friday shopping with friends & family. We have Tanger Outlets in a neighboring city that open at midnight on Thanksgiving night, so a bunch of us (friends & family) head out about 11pm and shop 'til we drop the next day. It's soo much fun!

Good luck everyone & Happy Fall!

cinnamon scent-so festive! We have pie night the night before Thanksgiving-everyone is in charge of making a pie-YUM!

Mommy said...

The next day after Thanksgiving, after everyone is tired of Turkey, we have a campfire in the back yard. We roast hot dogs and marshmellows, and sit around the fire for a while. It is so cozy and fun. We began doing this when my first was just a baby. She is now five.

Please count me in your contest! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Jenny said...

I know this is really weird but my 5 year old daughter can not stand the smell of bread. I have to burn candles whenever we are eating bread--even if it is just sandwiches. I would love to have a few different scents to try beside the one that we use everyday--with the frequency that we use it, I'm kind of becoming numb to it :)

As for our tradition for Thanksgiving, we drive from North Carolina up to Mass. to celebrate with my husband's aunt and all of his cousins. There are normally about 35 people there. Each person normally brings something to contribute so it is a bit of a potluck. This year is the first year that my girls will be old enough that I our family was given an assignment. So this year we will be making an apple pie!

Shama-Lama Mama said...

Oh my gosh, you mean I can make my HOUSE smell like Cinnebonn??

We go to grandma's every thanksgiving for dinner. Used to go to my mom's but now we go to my husband's as we have moved to CA. Its nice to get closer to his family.

Jennifer said...

My brother, sister, myself and our families all gather at my parents' house. It is divine chaos! We gather in front of the TV (all 14 1/2 of us) and watch the Macy's parade before lunch! It's great for all ages! Thanks for the entry!

Marie said...

My parents are moving to our area in a few months, and we're looking forward to reinstating the big family dinners I enjoyed growing up.

Anonymous said...

We homeschool and so the Pilgrims are a big part of our history lessons from year to year - incredible group of men and women - what a heritage our nation has in these courageous people! Anyways we study about them the whole week prior to Thanksgiving and then we celebrate what we call our 'Plymouth Plantation Day Celebration'! Costumes, games and traditional faire as well! Fun!

Our tradition involves my hubby. He cannot stand Thanksgiving food (weird, I know) so we always have to have some Texmex, like tacos, enchiladas, and definitely hot sauce. I'm proud that I can make him happy on a day that usually leaves him hungry. :) Thanks! apricotview at yahoo dot com

My husband and I have spent the last few Thanksgiving with friends, rather than family, because we lived so far away from them (us in Virginia and family in Indiana). Now we live even further (Colorado!)... I would like to start a new tradition with my husband of volunteering at the local soup kitchen (which is really important to where we live as it is an economically depressed part of the nation) to give out a meal, rather than making a large meal at home for just us.

So... not really a tradition yet. But I hope that it is someday!

One of our family traditions is to eat until we can see straight and then all fall asleep in the living room! OK, so maybe it's not a true tradition, but it happens every Thanksgiving! Thanks for the chance to win!

Brandi said...

Yummy yum yum! Our family tradition is to make 3x as many mashed potatoes as any other food item and straight-up gorge. Once a year.

courtcourt said...

Our Thanksgiving tradition...

After gorging on food, and doing the requisite "what I am thankful for this year" around the table, we each take a verse of the "12 Days of Christmas", and put it on tape. (I.e. Mom sings 2 Turtle Doves every time around, Dad sings 3 French Hens, we all sing the partridge verse.) SO much fun to listen to the differences as people get older! (I have the original tape from when *I* was 4 - over 20 years ago!)

Candace said...

Wow - I would LOVE to win this!

We have several traditions, but the one I always enjoy most is going around the table and everyone talks about what they are thankful for. Can I tell you how awesome it is to hear my children say how thankful they are for Jesus dying for their sins. And of course I am most thankful to have children who love our sweet, sweet Jesus!!! What could be better than that?

Adena said...

I was saving my favorite tradition to share on my blog closer to Thanksgiving but I guess I'll give it up early. Throughout the year, we have a "Blessings Jar" (cookie jar). As we receive blessings we list it on paper and place it in the jar. Then on Thanksgiving day we read them all and give thanks. A few for this year is new healthy baby, new van, new place to rent that saves us $400 a month, hubby traveling less with work, was *almost* hit by a driver, found dishes on clearance. Not always BIG things but everyday blessings.

JewelsHud said...

I adore candles - keeping things smelling good is important to me. Our Thanksgiving tradition is just getting together with all our family and playing games.

Well, when you base the choice for the winner on the tradition of thanksgiving, I'm sure I won't win.

But I'm living in a country where the founders came from.

My tradition is one that was passed on to me. My Granny was the Thanksgiving Pie Baker. I'd helped her since I was a wee thing, but when she was diagnosed with cancer she got serious about training me to be the new Pie Baker! We had several years of "training" before she went to be with the Lord. Those are wonderful memories. I now bake the pies with all the "littles" in the family: my children, niece, nephews and cousins. Thanks for the great giveaway!

angelaandconnor@gmail.com said...

We all cook my grandmother's favorite recipes. She always made us all our holiday meals and took care of the family and in all was the head of our family. Now that she is gone we try to keep up her traditions and honor her by using her recipes and making her cookies for thanksgiving. In a way it sort of means she is still taking care of us no matter what :)

pinkjagxj said...

What a clever giveaway! Our Thanksgiving tradition is counting our blessings as we sit down to eat.

We go around the table telling everyone what we're thankful for. I love that. Lots of people do it, but gratitude is always awesome.

Well this is our first year with our sweet baby boy so I am looking to start some new traditions. I want it to be a time spent with families and remembering those who are no longer with us. I want to spend the day at home, no stores, no computers, just us enjoying one anothers company and realizing how much we have all been blessed.
