Holiday HOHOHO Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Holiday HOHOHO Giveaway Hop, hosted by Review Wire Media and Chatty Patty’s Place!

Even in this very strange year, it’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays. After all, the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday is next Thursday, one week from tomorrow! That’s close.

I’m just realizing that one of the few bright spots of this bizarre year is not having to hear holiday carols wherever I go. The downside, of course, is that there is no place TO go. Or at least there shouldn’t be.

Still, it’s that time of year again. Which in our house means picking up our annual turkey “boob” at the grocery store this weekend. (There’s only two of us, we don’t feed the cats people food, so a turkey breast is enough for us and we STILL have leftovers!)

Our annual discussion of what to trim that turkey boob with (as well as my annual preparations for the Black Friday Giveaway Hop) marks the holiday season as officially here in our house.

What about your house? What marks the opening of the holiday season for you? Answer in the rafflecopter for your chance to win either a $10 Amazon Gift Card (or the equivalent from your local Amazon) or $10 in books from the Book Depository. This giveaway is open to anyone anywhere that the Book Depository ships, so the U.S. and LOTS of other places!

  1. Thanksgiving is the start of our holiday season. That weekend is when we get out the decorations and the tree! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. A non-profit organisation sends a santa parade float around the streets at the start of December as a means of getting people into the Christmas spirit and raising funds for their cause. This marks the start of the holiday season for me.

  3. Usually the first week in November when I start organizing cookie recipes and buying ingredients.

  4. Thanksgiving starts it off in our house. The day off is when the decorating starts. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

  5. Putting up the decorations the day after Thanksgiving and turning on the 24 hour Christmas music radio station.

  6. After Thanksgiving we begin preparing for the holidays. This means Chanukah and the cooking, baking and cute children’s gifts.

  7. For me, it’s when I take out all the presents I’ve bought during the year, spread them out on the bed, and make a list of the ones I need to buy.

  8. Right after Halloween we start decorating for Christmas. I love giving gifts & the decorations. So I start early so I can enjoy all the decorations and the gifts under the tree.

  9. The holiday season used to kick off a few days after Veterans Day, but not so much anymore.

    (Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.)

  10. When I start decorating right after Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season at our house

  11. The week before Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the season for me. As an elementary teacher, it starts with Thanksgiving and continues until

  12. While I’m not American, I do love to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade and usually consider that the kick off of the holiday season.

  13. I think for us is Thanksgiving night, its usually when we put the tree up, we don’t decorate it for a few days but we put it up that evening.

  14. Usually we don’t decorate until the day after Thanksgiving…but it’s 2020 so decorations are already up haha.

  15. Actually Halloween marks the opening of the holidays for my family. While we’re all still eating candy, on-line shopping for gifts beging and we start taking the decorations out of storage in preparation.

  16. The beginning of Christmas begins the weekend after Thanksgiving for us. Decorating the tree and house and shopping!

  17. I guess that it’s probably when we put up the tree. When I was little, decorating Christmas cookies always signaled that Christmas was almost here.

  18. This year we put the tree up as soon as we were done with Halloween so, it is officially the holiday season I guess. 🙂

  19. We like to put up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving to get us in the Christmas spirit.

  20. Our holiday season usually starts with Thanksgiving. We celebrate with family and then decorate for Christmas that night or the next day!

  21. We always have 2 trees so I put our 8foot artificial one in the family room and decorate it with anything related to snow, snowflakes and snowmen. We go to a tree farm and get a 11 or 12 foot Noble Fir and I put all of my Waterford and other special ornaments on that tree.

  22. After Thanksgiving when we put up the tree and other Christmas decorations is when we know that Christmas is really on its way.

  23. I actually start thinking about what I’m going to buy people in July. Christmas in July gets me a little excited. This year, putting up the Thanksgiving/Fall decorations made me excited for the holiday season. I wanted to have my Christmas decorations up November 1st, but that didn’t happen. Hopefully, we’ll go full-on Christmas this weekend.

  24. We’re already decorated for Christmas and have the tree and lights up. I had two kids go through major surgeries a few months ago and i’m finally in remission so we just wanna celebrate!

  25. The holidays really start to feel like they are HERE the beginning of December for me; when we put up the tree

  26. Celebrating Thanksgiving with our immediate family bubble members starts the holiday season for us.

  27. My mom would put out decorations for every main holiday. She had a large collection of holiday-themed teddy bear figurines that would rotate throughout the year.

  28. I don’t celebrate holidays. I have several disabilities and can barely walk . My doctor said I can’t drive,; I really have no reason to celebrate. I have to call my relatives because I can’t visit them and they can’t visit me due to travel restrictions of Covid.

  29. Thanksgiving marks the opening of the holiday season at my house. Thanks for the giveaway!

  30. The holiday season starts when we put up the nativity scene and open the first day on the advent calendar.

  31. It is usually the weekend after Thanksgiving, but this year we have been watching Christmas movies on Hallmark since the first week of November. We don’t have our tree up yet.

  32. We always watch Home Alone on Thanksgiving night….it’s the official beginning for us!

  33. November 1st marks the start of the holidays at our house. That’s when we put up our Christmas tree and decorations.

  34. We usually put up our tree Thanksgiving weekend but this year, we ordered a new tree and it hasn’t arrived yet.

  35. The day after my husband’s birthday (on Nov. 27th) is when we can officially start to decorate and play Christmas music! He can’t handle any earlier than that…but we get him back by leaving everything up through most of January 😉
