It's November 23, two days before the day we eat ourselves into oblivion, and I'm wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt. Darn Texas weather!
I don't know about you, but warm weather makes getting excited about Thanksgiving kinda hard, unless you live in Florida. Or in Australia. Or anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere. Although, if you live in Australia or the Southern Hemisphere, you don't observe Thanksgiving. Unless...you're an expatriate.
Thanksgiving is, for me, the beginning of the holiday season. (No, Halloween is not a holiday in my book, just a day for kids, and some adults, to act crazy.) For some unknown reason, I'm really looking forward to all the hub-bub that comes with this time of the year. Unlike past years where I would just as soon not have bothered with any of the hub-bub.
The sights. The sounds. The tastes. The smells.
Yes, the smells. There are definite scents that I associate with Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cinnamon. Pine tree. Pumpkin whatever. The holidays without these scents are incomplete.
Husband and I used to have a live Christmas tree, until, well I don't remember why we quit having a live tree. Anyway, we have a pre-lit tree that is very convenient but lacking on the fragrance that reminds me of my childhood Christmases.
Ah, but there is a solution. Candles, or diffusers, or Scentsy.
My friend Jaime, who is a Scentsy consultant, has generously offered to sponsor my giveaway.
Lemme' 'splain what you'll get to choose.
One of these adorable warmers
Here's a close-up of the shy one in the back
Or, if you're like me and collect Nativities, you might like this one.
There is also one you can choose if you celebrate Hanukkah. Well, you can choose this one too, even if you don't celebrate Hanukkah, Jaime says the color is beautiful.
Along with the warmer you'll receive three scent bars of your choice. Since we are talkin' holidays, might I suggest three that I personally sampled: Christmas Tree, you'll be looking for your ax; Gingersnap, you can almost taste them; Cinnamon Bear, smells just like Red Hots. But, you can choose any three that you'd like.
If you already have a Scentsy warmer, you could always give this as an early Christmas present. Avoid the long lines and all that mess that comes with Black Friday. Or, you could give yourself an early Christmas present!
