Starting New Traditions With Hallmark #Giveaway CLOSED

I can’t believe that tomorrow is December & Christmas is only 25 days away. Since I’ve been home from work I have been trying to kick up the holiday spirit early with Andre. A few weeks ago Hallmark was in NYC with the Northpole Communication Station. It was a fun opportunity on a chilly NYC night to get the holidays started for us.


The station was set up in the center of Times Square. Several of my blogger buddies & their kids were there as well. We walked through first to check out some of Hallmark’s fun items for the holidays such as the peppermint fling rings game and magic snowball. Then we approached the huge communication station. Kids put on a pair of headphones and spoke into a microphone. They dialed in and spoke to an Elf!

I love that they were able to capture the moment Andre heard the Elf’s voice. It was priceless.


Afterwards, the kids got together with some Elves and had a snowball fight! I’m not sure who won but it was a close game.

Hallmark sent us our own interactive Northopole communicator microphone & find me santa snowflake. Everyday starting December 1st Andre can call up the Northpole and have a chat with Santa or one of his friends. He is super excited about it and I have to admit so am I. The Find Me Santa Snowflake is a lighted snowflake that will let Santa know exactly where you are. On Christmas Eve it will glow for 4 hours! These are definitely fun ways & new traditions for our family.


Hallmark wants one my my readers to help kick off their holidays too!

One will win an Interactive Northpole Communicator Microphone & a Find Me Santa! Snowflake.
