the un-holiday contest!
We're in recovery because this big, friendly raucous dinner out started at 8:30, after sundown, and we didn't get home or to sleep until after midnight. We're usually eating during around 6pm and asleep by, say 10:30. So, even though today is just a regular work day--no holiday anymore--I'm totally tired out!
When I was a kid, occasionally we had to blow out holiday candles (for the Sabbath or another holiday) for safety's sake before leaving the house or going to sleep. My grandmother-now 94, btw--always encouraged us to blow out the two candles by saying "PURIM! PASSOVER!" Maybe the P sound made the candles go out faster? It's something I still think about sometimes as I loved being the kid chosen to blow out those candles with the names of two happy holidays! Anyhow, reflecting on this made me realize that Purim (5 weeks before Passover) has long ago passed without me mentioning this great contest opportunity.
The kind editor of Living Crafts Magazine would like to give away one free subscription (starting with this issue, the one where my design is on the cover). So, we're having a contest here--just because!
If you'd like to enter to win a subscription to Living Crafts Magazine, please leave a comment at the end of this post. Make sure you also include a way for me to contact you --via your blog or email or some sort of smoke signal. It's also useful to include your name.
I will draw the winner randomly on Sunday, April 11th, but if you wouldn't mind, I'm wondering if you could answer this question as well....
How long have you been reading this blog? (no penalties for new readers, I promise!)
