Countdown To Christmas Contest Winner...

...is JOANNE (Pull Up A Needle And Stitch)!!!! Congratulations :o) Please email me (my email address is in my profile) your mailing address and you'll be receiving something during the month of January. I'm not going to tell you what it will be though ;o)

Out of the fourteen comments, there were thirteen correct entries. I got DH to pick the lucky number so you have him to blame if you didn't win ;o) There is some issue about the last question to this contest and you'll notice that there were more correct answers than should be. The correct answer that came with the quiz was 364 presents (technically if you count all the gifts for each verse, this is the number you will come up with) 'but' it can be argued the other way so that is why I decided to accept both answers for that question. Scroll down for the answers to the questions :o)

I want to perk things up so I've decided to hold another contest :o) I'm not sure what the prize will be but I promise you'll like it! All you have to do is answer the following five questions correctly and add the answers to your comment. After the 12 Days Of Christmas are over, all correct entries will be put into a hat and a winner will be chosen!
