It's Giveaway Day again!

Giveaway Day!

This is Flakey the rag-snowflake. He's an unique little snowflake at about 22 cm tall.
Flakey made out of soft snowy white flannel and his nose is appliqued stripy blue cotton. He has little button eyes and he's wearing snuggly cotton gingham pyjamas with mother-of-pearl buttons on the back.
Flakey is filled with rags and wool.

PJ buttons

Since going to bed early makes Santa come quicker, Flakey has donned his PJs and is going to sleep now in order to make the presents come faster!

To celebrate the spirit of Christmas and the joy of giving I'm taking part in Giveaway Day, and thus I'm giving Flakey the rag-snowflake away to one lucky person who leaves a comment on what they enjoy most about Christmas here on this entry between today and the 6th of December (that's our Independence Day here in Finland!). Every commenter will be assigned a number, with the first person to comment being number 1 and the second commenter would be number 2 and so forth, and then on the 6th, I'll randomly draw a number to see who Flakey will be going home to (I'm happy to ship internationally, so it doesn't matter where you live).

Check out the whole long, long, long list of other wonderful crafters participating in Giveaway Day, too, they're all listed at the Sew Mama Sew-blog!

The best thing about Christmas for me is the decorations, I put up my Christmas lights up yesterday while listening to Christmas songs and I'm really looking forward to getting a real Christmas tree to decorate again. I buy a few new Christmas tree decorations every year, with most of them being bird-related in some way.
I do like Christmas music a lot too, and I tend to listen to it pretty much every day come December. Oh, and Christmas food! I love Christmas food! Joulutortut (Christmas tarts) and glögi (mulled wine) and porkkanalaatikko (carrot casserole) are at the top of my list of things I want to eat at Christmas. :)

Added on the 6th of December:

What I enjoy most about Christmas is the wonder my kids have for the holiday. It has given a me a whole new perspective to watch how my children think about the holiday.

Such a cute little guy! My fav thing about xmas is the time spent with family... and seeing the amazement on my kids faces when they first see the tree light up, or their gifts that santa leaves!

I love Christmas because it is when we celebrate Christs birth. I also love the "magic" of the season as seen through my childrens eyes.
thanks for such a great (and cute) giveaway.

the best thing about christmas to me is that i get to spoil people! i love giving gifts... way more than receiving so it's nice to see others get spoiled for a change!
great giveaway :) my daughter would LOVE it!

I just love seeing my family it's the only time of year we all get together.

I spent a year in your gorgeous country in 1987. I love snow at Christmas. Of course, we don't get snow in Australia as Christmas time so I loved my 1987 White Christmas (with lots of pulla...mmm)

Flakey is so cute, I would love to win him! My favourite thing about this season is the baking! I love to bake and Christmas gives me the perfect excuse to do as much of it as I'd like!

I love to look at lighted Christmas trees and Christmas is a happy time to spend with family. Thanks for the chance to wins such a cute prize!

flakey is too cute!!

i, too, love the decorations. the tree, the lights, the ornaments! such fun!

You have a lovely blog and I love Flakey so I hope he will be travelling my way!

Hi, Flakey is just gorgeous! It's so unique - I've never seen such puppet before, or even similar to it! I'd wish to take him to my bed and cover with warm, warm blanket....:) That's really good give-away. The winner will be very lucky.

Flakey is simply adorable. I love him! Thanks for sharing.

So, one of my favorite things about Christmas is the sharing and bon-homie that neighbors and strangers share. I also love the good time spent with my family.

The food, of course! (and who you eat it with) I love the celebrating part of the holidays!

Flakey is so cute! My favourite thing about the Christmas season is Advent, and particularly the Advent wreath. I love creating a new one every year and I love the quiet moment each week when we stand together as a family and light the new candle. It is such a symbol of hope and expectation!

My favourite parts of Christmas are having a few decorations around our home and having a nice meal with my son.

Flakey is adorable! I love almost everything about Christmas - family, baking, crafting, music, snow, everyone is cheerful. I do not love trying to find a parking spot at the mall.

It's sooooo cute!
I love Christmas with the snow, watching the tree inside while it's cold outside. Sleeping in (not this year with the twins!)

Thanks for the great giveaway! Happy holidays!
