Candy Cane Kink Giveaway H0p

Candy Kane Kink

Welcome to the Candy Cane Kinky Giveaway Hop. Wouldn’t you all just want the hunk above to come down the chimney and bring you some naughty gifts? I sure would….

So by now we have all dressed our Christmas trees and they are proudly displayed in our living room or some other place. Ornaments and lights are perfectly or as close to perfect placed on the branches. Maybe your tree is real or maybe fake.

The tree has meaning to you and your family. Maybe the ornaments hold special memories from the years before.

Maybe the tree is your first with a new family or someone special.  To you it is the most beautiful thing. Why? Because it is yours.

Christmas time makes us remember a lot and it makes us reflect on the things from the last year. It is a time to bring family together. Let friends reconnect and new friendships to blossom.

Our family tree is decorated with ornaments that hold special memories for us. Some were gifts given by someone special. Some were purchased as a reminder of the ones we have lost. Others were to start a new tradition.

We even have ornaments that were made when I was a little kid. They have survived all theses years and have graced out tree each and every single year. Each year when they hang on the tree I remember when I made them. IT brings back memories.

For some this time of the year has no meaning or is nothing special. They decorate a tree but it is just a tree. An addition to the house that must look fashionable. Christmas has no significance in their life.

I can’t imagine the holidays with no family, no special memories, no loved ones around to celebrate this beautiful time.

So tell me, do you have a special Christmas tradition or even something special you hang on your Christmas tree?

Bakery owner Valentine Benington’s day just went from the best of her life to the worst. Toronto Tribune reviewer, David Fraser, shows up for a review just after a fire comes close to destroying her kitchen. After David’s last assignment, which ended with food poisoning, it’s not the best of starts, especially since the job is a last-minute thing. He doesn’t expect to run into a woman from his past. First looks can be deceiving. The food isn’t the only thing on the menu he’d like to taste. When these two get baking, the flames from the oven aren’t the only thing setting the kitchen on fire.


“Yes, I’m still here,” she replied and covered her mouth with her sleeve trying to breath.
She had to get herself and Sam out of there before it was too late. Just as she moved over to stand up, her phone crashed to the ground, splintering into pieces. The battery slid across the floor and landed somewhere under the sink as the other pieces scattered around her feet.
“Shit,” she groaned.
She wasn’t going to wait for help to arrive and there was no time to run to the front to call them back. Every second that ticked by meant that Sam wasn’t receiving the help he desperately needed. Plus, there was no way to breathe in here. She had to get them outside into the fresh air. They would suffocate if they stayed any longer.
Valentine grasped his arms, lifted them up, and with all the energy she held inside her, she started to pull his unconscious body across the floor toward the back entrance. Sam’s larger statue made it difficult for her and robbed her of energy as she pushed herself and dragged him. The smoke stung her eyes and her airway began to constrict as she felt short of breath. Damn it, she wasn’t going to stop, not now. Valentine inhaled her last breath and pushed through the discomfort and the overwhelming urge to stop. As fast and hard as she could, she shoved her body against the heavy metal door with a thud. Losing her footing, she released Sam and crashed onto the cold, hard ground. Her body hungered for fresh air and she gasped in each breath, filling her oxygen deprived lungs.
Everything happened so fast. One minute she walked into the shop and the next she was battling a fire that was consuming the contents of whatever was in and around the oven. She barely remembered doing anything, let alone dragging Sam out. Adrenaline and instinct kicked in and she got them outside on autopilot.

Hopping through! Loved the excerpt, Suzannah!
Our tree trimming tradition started two years ago when our son was born, every year from now until our babies are grown their Daddy and I buy a special ornament just for them. When they grow up and move out of home we’ll separate the trinkets and they’ll have their own collection to add to with their families!
Wow that sounds sappy!
Thanks for the giveaway!
Happy Hopping!

Every year I get the kids an ornament for their collection so they have something to start with when they eventually leave home. At the beginning it was cutsey ones that I liked but the last few years the ornaments reflected something they each were interested in, like there’s a Hannah Montana one, and a Spider Man, Mickey and Mini Mouse for the year we went to Disney at Christmas.

In the past I had to have the tree decorated a certain way or I relocated the ornaments once the kids were done, now I love the job the kids do, and as we hang up each ornament we reflect on them and remember the times past.

We also have the Christmas Pickle, this is an ornament I hide and the person to find it gets an extra gift. It was supposedly a old German tradition, however all the research we’ve done tells us that its a modern one. Doesn’t matter we have fun with it!

Merry Christmas and Cheers to you and yours this holiday season!

My favorite Christmas decoration is one that my mom got when I was born. It’s a mother of pearl teething ring with a tiny Christmas tree on it. She gave it to me when I moved into my own home over 30 years ago. I still have it and it goes on the tree front and center right under the angel tree topper. We also have ornaments given to us by good friends and family and ones bought to remind us of someone special that is now gone that we put on the tree. I love to remember and cry a little while decorating my tree. Each year I have those special ornaments that MUST go on the tree. then I will choose the generic ornaments to complement the color scheme for that year. ( I try to choose a different color each year.) Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

Thank you for hopping with us. Happy Holidays. 🙂


Mel BournDecember 14th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I love Christmas decorations! One thing I miss is the silver tinsel that we used to COVER the tree in as a child. We used to make “dragon tongues”. I never see the stuff now.

My Tree is gaining more and more ornaments as the kids grow and make new ones every year!


Theresa EsterlineDecember 14th, 2012 at 11:07 pm

Christmas cookie and candy making with the family and celebrating at the each of the parents house is our family tradition.


LindaDecember 14th, 2012 at 11:27 pm

I can´t have a tree, between the dogs and the cats, not to mention that the tree kills my Hoyas *sulk* i´ve given up on even trying.
Maybe another year, =) and in a room where the critters are banned?
Happy Holidays!


pcDecember 15th, 2012 at 2:36 am

Definitely having family come together is the most wonderful thing during the holidays! We have an artificial quarter tree (you can put it in the corner of a room and it looks like a full tree ) which now stays up all year long with the lights but we do take th ornaments down after the holidays 🙂
Nice excerpt…thanks for sharing! happy holidays!


CarlaDecember 15th, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Thank you, thank you, thank you for including the information that the book is a re-edited book. I can’t tell you how often I buy a book that I think sounds interesting and find that I have already read it. Just a little not makes us readers happy.

Have many ornaments that we have collected on vacations. It is always fun to see them every year when we decorate the trees.

Shannon G.December 15th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

For a while our Christmas tree tradition was to have a theme – mainly my idea since I did most of the decorating. One year it was all white, one all hand-crafted, one all wooden, etc. But then that got old because we had to re-sort all the ornaments LOL

amyDecember 15th, 2012 at 11:45 pm

I have ornaments I made in grade school on the tree:)
Happy Holidays!

The trees are beautiful. We decorated our tree about a week ago now.



MichelleDecember 16th, 2012 at 7:23 am

Ornaments? What are those? We end up with kids toys on our tree 😉


Cassandra HicksDecember 16th, 2012 at 11:45 am

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!


Kerry PaciousDecember 16th, 2012 at 1:55 pm

My Mom still decorates her tree evry year with ornaments my Sister’s & I made as children, she loves to tell stories to our kids about when we made them. Every year in August while on vacation we go to a tree farm near out place in the mountains of NH and pick out our tree. Then in December the kids try to figure out which day it will be delivered. Thank you for the giveaway & the excerpt. Happy Holidays


Vanessa N.December 16th, 2012 at 2:36 pm

I like getting a real tree if possible because I love the smell of pine in the house.


TessaDecember 16th, 2012 at 3:12 pm

I love the Christmas tree. The ornaments are old ones, which all of them have special memories and are important. And decorating the tree is always as fun.


Krista BDecember 16th, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Our Christmas tree has tons of ornaments and each has a special meaning. This year we added one from our first family vacation to Disney – my girls love to look at it 🙂


ELFDecember 16th, 2012 at 11:49 pm

We don’t usually do a tree except for the years when I buy a small potted one but I love to admire other people’s trees!


BeckeyDecember 17th, 2012 at 8:35 am

do you have a special Christmas tradition or even something special you hang on your Christmas tree?

I have to “puppy” proof the tree, thanks to a 90lbs 6 year old BoxerDane pup. She has this habit of carefully going under the tree to sleep but isn’t so dosile when she awakes (she has a habit of toppling the tree over)… With that being said my tree is decorated with silk flowers and ribbon (no glass breaking or mess) but it gives the tree a Victorian look.

Happy Holidays


RissaDecember 17th, 2012 at 8:36 am

we always get a real tree we chop down ourselves and stuff it full of all kinds of ornaments!

Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

One of the traditions we had growing up was my mother would sneak into our bedrooms after we’d gone to sleep and leave a new ornament beside the bed as if Santa had given us that little extra. Now I do it with my kids on Christmas eve. Thanks for the fun giveaway, Savannah. 🙂

I love the old ornaments that I have and the new glass ones I have gotten. I even inherited some from my grandparents. I also have one I made about 40 yrs ago- just a milkweed pod, felt, glitter and a tiny pine cone, I still love it.
Thank you for the giveaway. Happy Holidays!


KayleenDecember 17th, 2012 at 11:06 pm

My significant other always insists on a real tree, which we decorate together. Each year we get each other a new personalized ornament, and I love going through them all and hanging them up every year!
Thanks for the giveaway!


Becki SchwebkeDecember 18th, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Every year the kids and my husband buy me a new dated ornament for the tree. Twenty-two years plus and all of the handmade ornaments we need multiple trees too. Merry Christmas. becki

Growing up we always added a new homemade ornaments from each kid in the family. Eventually the whole tree was covered with things we made. Now there are no store bought ornaments on the tree. It is always fun decorating the tree remembering making the ornaments!

Hoping to resurrect a childhood tradition of having fondue with my oldest brother this year, since I just moved 1000 miles to be closer to him.
